Jim Davis, the founder of Wild Ride beef jerky, grew up in Texas as a cattle rancher. He was determined to make a soft and tender texture of jerky. Eventually he patented a tenderization process, which can only be found in Wild Ride beef jerky. This tenderization process allows the jerky to reconstitute in water very quickly. This jerky is advertised as Cowboy Strips, which offers a thick piece of jerky that is tender to chew, and packed with flavor. Read More
I earlier reviewed a 3.65 ounce bag of Damn Good Sweet & Spicy beef jerky. This 1.8 ounce/51 gram bag of sweet & spicy beef jerky made by Damn Good Foods has a different ingredient list. The taste and ingredient reviews will remain the same. The bag review will get a higher rating.
This sweet & spicy flavored bag of beef jerky made by Damn Good Foods was an early addition to my jerky bag collection. It was purchased in 2009 at a country store in Penn Yan, New York, which is in the Finger Lakes region near Lake Keuka. There is no denying that ‘Damn Good’ is a catchy, provocative name. Damn Good beef jerky is made in Stillwater, New York. Rather than describe the company in my own words, I will just copy what they have on their web site, which is quite interesting. Read More
Note: For a live taste review read Florence Meats – Peri Peri Biltong (Review #1).
Biltong has South African origins. I purchased this Peri Peri flavored bag at Florence Meats in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. Peri Peri is a unique flavor to biltong, which is spicy, but not overly hot in flavor. The beef is air dried in a climate controlled, sterile cooler for 9-10 days, rather than using a dehydrator or smoker.
Update February 2015: For a live taste review, open The Great Canadian Meat Company Teriyaki Beef Jerky (Review #2).
This was one of the early bags added to my collection of jerky bags. I purchased this original flavor bag at a convenience store in North Arlington, New Jersey, in 2008. That was the one and only time I ever saw Adirondack Backwoods jerky for sale in a store.
