This Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky brand name was trademarked in 2006. Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky was started by Joseph Arcuri, who has passed away a few years ago. Stoney Point Inc., in partnership with his wife, Kathy Arcuri has expanded and pushed the brand in its current growth, from 50 pounds a week to 10,000 pounds a week and still growing.
By no accident, Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky does resemble the formerly trendy jerky brand Wild Bill’s Beef Jerky in every facet that also originated in Pennsylvania. After Monogram Food Snacks from Tennessee acquired Wild Bill’s Beef Jerky in 2009, many loyal customers have vented to us that Monogram Food Snacks ruined their beloved Wild Bill’s Beef Jerky brand. Especially in the last four or five years with Monogram cheapening their ingredients and using non-USA beef.
Consumers have another choice with Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky to restore Pennsylvania’s pride with this Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky brand that is still Hand Cut, Hand Sliced, and Hand Packed using USDA beef. Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky is distributed under the name of Stoney Point Inc., and they are located in Littlestown, Pennsylvania.
The next review on Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky will focus on a 3 ounce/85 gram bag of their Bourbon Soaked flavored beef jerky. This flavor is described as being delicious, and you need not risk a saloon brawl to get your hands on it. Amanda Fowler graciously submitted this jerky for review.
Ingredients: Beef, Soy (Water, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Corn Syrup, Salt, Caramel Color, Lactic Acid, Potassium Sorbate), Bourbon, Seasonings, Water, Brown Sugar, Cultured Dextrose. Allergen Warnings: Soy
The beef used is ethically raised, meaning it is guaranteed to be free of growth hormones and additional antibiotics. The cattle have partial free range access to roam about and graze on grass the way nature intended. As a result, the highest ingredient rating that can be awarded is a Very Good (9/10) rating.
The vague term seasonings is used, which can contain both healthy and unhealthy ingredients.
The sugar level is a little high at 4 grams of sugar per 28 grams of jerky to lose a rating. Our preference is 3 grams of sugar or less per 28 grams of jerky. The salt level is high at 430mg of salt per 28 grams to lose another rating. Our preference is 350mg of salt or less per 28 grams of jerky.
This jerky qualifies to have no sodium nitrite, or any other similar unhealthy preservative added. This jerky does not qualify to have no MSG added, as the highly processed cheap flavor enhancer hydrolyzed soy protein is used in the soy sauce to lose a rating.
BRONCO BILLY’S BEEF JERKY – BOURBON SMOKED BEEF JERKY
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
When I open the bag, I smell strong soy. I don’t detect any bourbon odor, so let’s try a piece to see if I then notice the bourbon. The jerky is dry (awesome), and soft, but not too soft. I love the texture. The pieces vary from small to medium, yet it is sliced relatively thin. There is no oily residue left on your fingers handling these strips.
Most Canadians drink far more rye (Crown Royal) than bourbon (Jack Daniel’s or Jim Beam) though I’m not one of them. While I certainly do love my Crown, I also love my Jack & Jim. So I feel most duly qualified to weigh in on this jerky, I’m by far and away the biggest liquor drinker in our Group of Seven.
I just cracked open the sealed bag, so I am eating the jerky at its freshest. While I am picking up on a liquor flavor, it’s not quite strong enough to determine if it’s bourbon or not. This jerky tastes frickin’ incredible, don’t get me wrong, but what liquor I am consuming is not as discernible. I just took a shot of Jack to see if I could pick up on any similarities (d*mn, this jerky is bloody tasty), and I am picking up on some, but not a 100% Hell ya, this is bourbon taste.
Bronco Billy’s, I appear to be merely splitting hairs here. I am impressed enough to warrant this flavor a definitive 10/10. Two thumbs way up!!👍👍. Gentlemen?
Here is what Mark had to say about this Whiskey beef jerky flavor from Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky: “Thanks Paul for the fantastic taste review. I wholly concur with you. This flavor tastes delicious. I am not a big liquor drinker but do detect the liquor, whether it be bourbon or not. The texture is fantastic, having a good old-fashioned dry texture. Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky makes jerky the right way. Two thumbs way up!!!👍👍
