The Beef Jerky Outlet debuted their first store in 2010, and this Niagara Falls, New York BJO opened their doors in May 2017. Now there are over 100 Beef Jerky Outlet stores located across the USA, where free samples of jerky are normally available. This Niagara Falls Beef Jerky Outlet store however had zero samples available, and the lone disinterested employee could care less. A wide variety of jerky is available for sale, including various insects in candy. This BJO Smoky Mountain jerky brand is distributed under the name of Beef Jerky Outlet Franchise Inc., and they are located in Kodak, Tennessee, near the Smoky Mountains.
The next review on BJO Smoky Mountain will focus on a 3 ounce/85 gram bag of their Dill Pickle flavored beef jerky. This dill pickle flavor is said to only be around for a Limited Time Offer. The bag was purchased in the Niagara Falls Beef Jerky Outlet store in Niagara Falls, New York at a Premium Outlet.

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.
The sugar level is very low at 1 gram of sugar per 28 grams of jerky. The salt level is very high at 600mg of salt per 28 grams of jerky to lose a rating. Our preference is 350mg of salt or less per 28 grams of jerky. Keep in mind that this nutrition facts table is not trustworthy, as it is identical for all BJO Smoky Mountain flavors (over 20).
BJO SMOKY MOUNTAIN – DILL PICKLE BEEF JERKY
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
When I open the bag I smell both dill and vinegar. The jerky is rather hard and dry, just the way our forefathers wanted it. I absolutely love the texture. The jerky is medium in size, and it is sliced to a medium thickness. There is no oily residue left on your fingers.
The flavor of dill is coming through in spades, as well as having more of a discernible pickle flavor. I detect intense salt and pepper, two thumbs up, minimal sweet, almost non-existent (👍), garlic, onion, vinegar, copious amounts of natural beef, as well as a slight kick in the background. You can actually see a few chili flakes on the strips of jerky.
Holy crap, this jerky is hitting big time on the WOW!! factor, consider me duly frickin’ impressed!
Bloody hell, I can’t keep my paws off of this most delectable treat. Someone, grab me a needle, I’m gonna try and inject it straight into my blood stream. I’d better sign off on this taste review before the ridiculously tasty flavor completely engulfs me and I become totally incoherent.
BJO, is that short for Beef Jerky Overdose? I may be having one right now. Rating this jerky any lower than a 10/10 may be justification for extreme violence.
Guys, if I’m found streaking later yelling incoherent horsesh*t, blame it on the BJO heroin I just injected. Two thumbs way up!!!👍👍”
Here is what Stéphane had to say: “I am pleasantly surprised with this BJO Dill Pickle beef jerky. I have been on the fence with this flavor and it is starting to feel less foreign to me. The acidity and dill flavor come out really nice without overwhelming the beefy taste completely.
The slight kick of spiciness does work wonders, as it kicks up the flavor profile a few notches and add dimension to this product.
I usually love the taste and texture of dill pickles in my burgers or with a mountain of smoke meat and I am now becoming more and more open to this jerky flavor.
I believe BJO successfully achieved a great representation of Dill Pickle with this Beef Jerky and I stand with a 10/10 taste rating.
Here is what Mark had to say about this Dill Pickle beef jerky flavor from BJO Smoky Mountain: “Thanks Paul, you had a BJO, a Beef Jerky Orgasm. It is unanimous with Stéphane that the Group of Seven BJO Smoky Mountain somehow pulls off an authentic tasting Dill Pickle flavor.
This Dill Pickle beef jerky flavor was shared between the Group of Seven (minus Sid due to the inane teacher strikes). Everybody appreciated the dill pickle flavor. Observing and tasting myself, the dill pickle flavor is not consistent strip to strip. You need to devour 3 or 4 jerky strips to get a greater appreciation of this grand tasting dill pickle flavor with a super dry texture.
This resealable, clear plastic bag has a label affixed to the front, and nothing on the back. The Beef Jerky Outlet logo has bull horns above their name.
A slogan printed on this bag is “Made in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee”. Facts printed on this bag are “Made in USA” and “Limited Time Offer”.
The only bag categories missing are a soy allergen alert, and no blurb is printed about this jerky or flavor.
