In 2018, current CEO James Napier, being a knee down amputee, was determined not to let that disability affect him. James reached out to a friend, fellow patriot, serial entrepreneur, and current COO Lance Wood. In collaboration with their wives and copacker Grill To Kill was launched shortly afterward in 2018. The The Patriot Brands Jerky now sells jerky, sausages, meat sticks, spices, and sauces. The Patriot Brands Jerky is distributed by The Patriot Brands LLC, and they are located in Cuba, Missouri.
The next review on The Patriot Brands Jerky will focus on a 1/4 pound/8 ounce/227 gram bag of their country style flavored beef summer sausage. This flavor is described as a challenge daring anybody to come with a better tasting summer sausage. The bag was kindly submitted for review by COO Lance Wood.
Beef, Water, Salt, Spices, Dextrose, Garlic Powder, Lactic Acid, Sodium Nitrite
The beef used is not guaranteed to be free of growth hormones or additional antibiotics. Also, the beef is not guaranteed to have at least partial free range access to graze on grass. As a result, the highest ingredient rating that can be awarded is a Good (8/10) rating.
Being that by nature sausages are not whole sliced muscles of meat, one ingredient rating is deducted.
There are some healthy ingredients added such as spices and garlic powder.
There is no nutrition facts table provided. As a result, the exact sugar and salt levels are unknown. With no sugars being listed in the ingredient list, this sausage does qualify to be under 2 grams of sugar per 28 grams of sausage.
These sausages do not qualify to be sodium nitrite free, as sodium nitrite is used outright as a preservative to lose a rating. Commendably, this flavor qualifies to have no MSG added.
Alright (6/10) – Ingredient Rating
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
When I open the bag, I smell sausage (salami?) and vinegar. The sausage slices are thin and round, are soft and moist, and they leave an oily residue on your fingers.
The first flavors I detect are salt, pepper, garlic, vinegar, and a salami-like flavor. I am a big fan of salami, so, by extension, I am a big fan of this flavor of summer sausage. I’m going to revert to one of my favorite comments when I really like a certain flavor. It tastes like ‘more’.
The Patriots Brand Jerky has really hit the nail on the head for this particular flavor, it is undressing my taste buds and slipping my palette into something more comfortable. It is caressing my tongue and tickling my teeth. As I swallow it is gently massaging my inner juices and bringing my taste buds to orgasm all over my digestive system. Time to take another bite and experience it all over again. Thank you Patriots Brand, for stirring my intestinal loins. Bravo, another 10/10 gentlemen….👍👍
Here is what Mark had to say about this Country Style beef summer sausage flavor from The Patriot Brands Jerky: “Stephane and I emphatically agree with Paul, this summer sausage tastes like more, and is addictive as hell. The sourness similar to vinegar is what sets this flavor apart. The flavor was shared between ten people, where nobody could identify a single problem with this flavor other than Sid and Nolan who said it lacked sweetness. The less experienced people in the Group of Seven awarded their highest ratings to date. Here are the official ratings between the Group of Seven (Mark – 10, Paul – 10, Stephane – 10, Nolan – 9, Mark M. – N/A, Sid – 8, Ava – 8.5)”.
A 1/2 pound/16 ounce/454 gram bag currently sells online for sale at $6.99. That works out to 44 cents an ounce, which rates as a very cheap price. Free shipping is offered on online orders of $40, and includes a free pocket Constitution!
Excellent (10/10) – Taste Rating
This non-resealable bag has a label affixed to the front, and nothing on the back. The Patriots Brands logo resembles a dog tag issued by the military.
There are no slogans or facts printed on this bag.
Some missing bag categories are a blurb printed about The Patriot Brands Jerky or this country style flavor, the weight stated in ounces or grams, a nutrition facts table, and a best before date. A lot no. is provided, which could translate to a best before date.
