Branch Warren’s forefathers were cattlemen, and beef jerky was a staple of their existence. A century and a half later, he is still carrying on that tradition with time-honored recipes that they guarantee you will love. Branch was born in Texas and spent his early childhood on a cattle ranch. On that ranch is where he learned the value of hard work. He later moved to the Ft. Worth area, where he began bodybuilding, and ultimately became a world champion professional bodybuilder. During this time, Branch learned the importance of having a high-quality protein food source that is hormone-free and all-natural.
Throughout his life Branch has loved jerky and wanted to own his own company. So after retiring from competitive bodybuilding Branch wished to pass on his healthy lifestyle and time-honored family recipes. Once you open a bag and take the first bite, they guarantee you will love the wickedly awesome flavor of Wicked Cutz. This Wicked Cutz jerky brand is distributed under the name of Wicked Cutz, and they are located in Southlake, Texas.
The next review for Wicked Cutz will focus on a 2.75 ounce/78 gram bag of their Carolina Killa beef jerky. This Carolina Killa flavor is described as the hottest jerky you will ever taste using three of the spiciest peppers in the world: Carolina Reaper, Scorpion, and Ghost Peppers. The jerky was kindly submitted for review by Luis Ubanda.
Ingredients: Beef, Teriyaki Sauce (Soy Sauce (Water, Wheat, Soybeans, Salt), Wine, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Water, Vinegar, Salt, Spices, Onion Powder, Succinic Acid, Garlic Powder, Sodium Benzoate: Less Than 1/10 of 1% As A Preservative.), Brown Sugar, Carolina Reaper Mash (Carolina Reaper, Vinegar), Cayenne, Pineapple, Worcestershire Sauce (Distilled White Vinegar, Molasses, Sugar, Water, Salt, Onions, Anchovies, Garlic, Cloves, Tamarind Extract, Natural Flavorings, Chili Pepper Extract), Lemon Juice (Water, Lemon Concentrate, 1/10 of 1% Sodium Benzoate, Garlic, Ghost Pepper, Ground Pepper, Sea Salt, Ginger.

The beef used here is guaranteed to be ethically raised 98% of the time, meaning free of growth hormones or additional antibiotics. There is no 100% guarantee offered because sometimes the beef used cannot keep up with the demand. These cattle are not guaranteed to have at least partial free range access to roam about. As a result, the highest ingredient rating awarded is a Very Good (9/10) rating.
This liquid marinade used here is comprised of a fair teriyaki sauce, healthy lemon juice, and a well-respected brand of Worcestershire sauce. It is disappointing to see that the teriyaki sauce uses the highly processed unhealthy sweetener high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) to lose a rating.
There are healthy ingredients added, such as garlic, black pepper, pineapple, and ginger. The heat is achieved using Carolina reaper pepper, cayenne pepper, and ghost pepper. Hot peppers are healthy if eaten in moderation, which flushes toxins out of the body.
The sugar level is acceptable at 3 grams of sugar per 28 grams of jerky. The salt level is quite low at only 115mg of salt per 28 grams of jerky.
This jerky does qualify to have no sodium nitrite, or any other similar unhealthy preservatives. Admirably, this jerky qualifies to have no MSG added.

WICKED CUTZ – CAROLINA KILLA BEEF JERKY
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
When I open the bag, I smell the vinegar. The jerky is medium to large, and it is sliced to a medium thickness. The jerky is soft and dry, and it leaves no oily residue on your fingers.
When I bite into the jerky, I taste salt, minor sweet, garlic, vinegar (or some sort of juice, not entirely sure), and the incredibly intense heat, my oh my, Houston, we have a problem. The problem is trying to survive this intense heat. If I held a lighter in front of my mouth right now, I could breathe fire onto someone and melt them instantly.
The jerky is quite tasty, but, ladies and gentlemen, this flavor is NOT for the squeamish. I may have to call in the fire department. My frickin’ mouth is on fire!! Extremely spicy indeed. I can find no fault with this flavor, it is coming across exactly as advertised, and therefore a 10/10 seems the only logical conclusion. A very enthusiastic two thumbs up!!👍👍
Wicked Cutz sells online a 2.75 ounce/78 gram bag of jerky for $7.99. That equates to $2.90 an ounce, which rates in the upper range of an average price.
Excellent (10/10) – Taste Rating
This black plastic resealable has everything imprinted directly on the bag itself, both on the front and back. There are no labels affixed to this bag.
There are no slogans printed on this bag. Some facts written are “Caution Extreme Heat”, “Made in the USA”, “High Quality”, and “Wicked Hot”.
The only bag category missing is a transparent window to view the actual jerky. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snap Chat images are displayed.
