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 pieces are small in size, and they are sliced medium thick. They are soft and dry, and leave no oily residue on your fingers.
The first flavors I encounter are salt, pepper, garlic, and that spectacular poignant flavor of spicy Cajun. My oh my, we just did a review of another jerky maker’s Cajun flavor, and it was to die for. But, my friends, Angry Rod has duplicated the splendidly ridiculously incredible flavor of Cajun spice for his jerky as well. I am once again thrust into Cajun heaven with this also world class flavor of Cajun jerky. Two Cajun flavored jerky reviews in a row, and two lights out, knock me on my derriere samples.
Angry Rod, meet Angry Paul. I’m livid because I am out of your spectacular flavor of jerky. If you send me more, I’ll calm down. Until then, pat yourselves on the back for producing spicy Cajun jerky to inhale. A no doubt 10/10 gentlemen. Two thumbs way up!!!👍👍”
Here is what Mark had to say about this Cajun beef jerky flavor from Rod’s Angry Jerky: “My first inclination was an 8 or 9 taste tasting. Then after consuming more strips, the flavor grew on me. In sharing this Cajun flavor between nine people, I observed that the jerky strips are not evenly seasoned, inducing various reactions. Especially with the heat factor, some jerky strips being spicy (2 out of 5 or more on the heat scale), and some strips not so spicy.
Here are the official ratings, which may be collectively the highest taste rating average to date between the Group of Seven (Mark – 9, Angry Paul – 10, Stéphane – 10, Nolan – 9, Mark M. – N/A, Sid – 9, Ava – 7). For the record, Angry Paul reviewed the most evenly boldly seasoned strips. Stéphane also reviewed an evenly seasoned jerky strip. We wouldn’t want to anger Angry Paul or Angry Rod, so an Excellent (10/10) taste rating it is!
