Rod’s Angry Jerky started a few years ago. The taste of store bought jerky just wasn’t cutting it. So with some encouragement from his family, Rod started experimenting with different flavors and techniques as a hobby. Every batch of hand sliced jerky that Rod made just got him closer and closer to the Angry recipe you taste today. In sharing with friends, family, and colleagues, the overwhelming reviews from all made it an easy decision to share it with the world! On January 8/2019, the Rod’s Angry Jerky brand was launched. This jerky is distributed under the same name of Rod’s Angry Jerky, and they are based out of Milford, New Jersey.
The next review on Rod’s Angry Jerky will be on a 3 ounce/85 gram bag of their Angry Texas Bee beef jerky, which is a barbecue based flavor. This jerky was graciously submitted for review by the owner, Rodney Shur, The Angry Jerky Guy!!
Ingredients: Beef, Honey, Apple Cider Vinegar, White Vinegar, Minced Garlic, Brown Sugar, Molasses, Chili Powder, Smoked Paprika, Black Dried Mustard Powder, Cumin, Olive Oil, Sugar, Salt, Onions, Anchovies, Natural Hickory Smoke Flavor, Caramel Color.
The beef used is guaranteed to have been raised ethically, meaning not administered growth hormones or additional antibiotics. This beef is also guaranteed to have at least partial free range to roam about as nature intended. As a result, the highest ingredient rating possible is Very Good (9/10).
There is no nutrition facts table. As a result, the exact sugar and salt levels are unknown.
This jerky does qualify to have no sodium nitrite, or any other similar unhealthy preservatives. Instead, salt is the main preservative. To a lesser degree, apple cider vinegar and vinegar also act as preservatives. Admirably, this jerky does qualify to have no MSG added.
These strips of jerky are medium in size, and sliced borderline thick. The strips of jerky are somewhat soft and tender, being sliced against the grain. Handling these strips leave a fair amount of oily residue on your fingers, where you should have a paper towel handy. The aroma is of a sweet barbecue sauce with hints of smoke and anchovies.
The first taste encountered is a bold great tasting sweet barbecue flavor, but not too sweet tasting. Added in is a mild level of saltiness, and light levels of onion and garlic. The apple cider vinegar adds a fruity flavor, along with a great level of sourness.
Despite the sweetness there is a decent amount of natural beef flavor present. The flavor profile finishes off with a mild smokiness.
Paul surprisingly had a different take on this flavor: “I am met with a radiant juicy flavor, not sure what it is. It is coming across as a bit of a grape(ish), pineapple(ish) flavor, very moist, very tasty, and very addictive. I detect salt, pepper, garlic, possible onion, and definitely the taste of vinegar. I am thoroughly enjoying this flavor of jerky, and would definitely encourage others to try it, the only issue I have with this flavor is, it is not barbecue flavor, it is more of your typical teriyaki flavor. Taking this all into careful consideration, I have deduced that this jerky is at an 8, but more likely as a 9/10.”
This jerky was shared between four different people. Stephane, Mark, and I were all very impressed willing to award a 10/10 taste rating. We found Paul’s taste review to be confusing, where we did not pick up on a teriyaki flavor whatsoever. In any case, this Angry Texas Bee was a treat to eat.
This silver resealable plastic bag has a label affixed, both on the front and back. There is drawing on the front of Angry Rod.
A slogan printed on this bag is “Taste The Anger!!”. There are no facts printed on this bag.
Some bag categories missing are the jerky weight not stated in grams, a USDA stamp, barcode, allergen alerts, and a nutrition facts table. To the credit of Rod’s Angry Jerky, a phone number is provided for customer inquiries.
