BRONCO BILLY’S – SWEET BBQ BEEF STICK
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
When I open the bag, I smell the vinegar. This meat stick appears identical to any other meat stick in appearance. The meat stick is soft and chewy, and it leaves no oily residue on your fingers.
The first flavors I encounter are salt, pepper, too much sweet, garlic, bbq (ketchup flavor), as well as faint natural beef.
This meat stick is advertised as sweet bbq, which it is, to a ‘t’, but it is a bit too sweet for my palette. However, if I put my personal bias aside, it is exactly as advertised. Even if it is as advertised, it completely lacks in the “Wow” factor, so I will award a 9/10 and can’t justify the perfect score here. Gentlemen?
Here is what Mark had to say about this Sweet BBQ beef stick flavor from Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky: “Thanks Paul for the honest taste review. Unlike Paul, I thought that the sweetness level was reasonable for a flavor with sweet in its flavor name. This beef stick does deliver on the sweet bbq flavor, and does provide some ‘wow’ factor. One complaint is the lack of ‘snap’ from the texture when chewing off a bite.”
“Due to COVID-19, the Group of Seven is down to just Paul and me for this review. I was willing to award a 10 taste rating here, where I was surprised that Paul thought that this beef stick was too sweet tasting. Again, a rating reduction is warranted for the lack of snap in the texture. Otherwise, yet another fantastic job by Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky.“
This 2 ounce/56 gram meat stick sells for $1.99 in Stoney Point Farm Market stores, which rates at a cheap price.
Very Good (9/10) – Taste Rating
This non-resealable clear plastic bag is vacuum-sealed, the best way to keep a meat stick fresh tasting. There is a label affixed to the front and nothing on the back. The Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky logo is of the cowboy Yosemite Sam shooting two guns into the sky.
There are no slogans or facts printed on this bag.
Some bag categories missing are no soy allergen alert and no nutrition facts table. Commendably, a phone number is provided for customer inquiries.
