I’m always on the hunt for a new delicious brand of jerky to snack on, either on the road or on the trail. Making beef jerky is one of my favorite things to dehydrate. It’s such a versatile way to bring a huge amount of flavors with you where ever you go. I’m definitely making some this weekend. For now, I picked this one up on sale for a dollar off the other day, let’s see how it fares.
Calories (bag): 250
Flavor: Initially sweetness is short lasted and some nice heat comes through pretty early on. It’s not very salty, but the meat itself is not flavorful either, only the chipotle. The heat lingered for about a minute after each piece. I can’t believe i’m saying this.. but, more salt would be nice!
Texture: Very soft, not chewy at all. Dissolves pretty quickly after a few chews. Red pepper flakes on the meat are a nice contrast from the meat itself. Feels more like shredded beef jerky.
Taking the above into account, I think this is an alright jerky to pick up if you see it on sale, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to take it on the road or trail with me.
