This Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky brand name was trademarked in 2006. Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky was started by Joseph Arcuri, who has passed away a few years ago. Stoney Point Inc., in partnership with his wife, Kathy Arcuri has expanded and pushed the brand in its current growth, from 50 pounds a week to 10,000 pounds a week and still growing.
By no accident, Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky does resemble the formerly trendy jerky brand Wild Bill’s Beef Jerky in every facet that also originated in Pennsylvania. After Monogram Food Snacks from Tennessee acquired Wild Bill’s Beef Jerky in 2009, many loyal customers have vented to us that Monogram Food Snacks ruined their beloved Wild Bill’s Beef Jerky brand. Especially in the last four or five years with Monogram cheapening their ingredients and using non-USA beef.
Consumers have another choice with Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky to restore Pennsylvania’s pride with this Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky brand that is still Hand Cut, Hand Sliced, and Hand Packed using USDA beef. Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky is distributed under the name of Stoney Point Inc., and they are located in Littlestown, Pennsylvania.
The next review on Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky will focus on a 3 ounce/85 gram bag of their Teriyaki flavored beef jerky. This flavor is described as being tender and moist and boasting with the sweet and salty deliciousness of teriyaki. The jerky was kindly submitted for review by Amanda Fowler.
Ingredients: Beef, Soy Sauce (Water, Salt, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Corn Syrup, Caramel Color, Potassium Sorbate), Water, Sugar, Spices, Garlic Powder, Cultured Dextrose. Allergen Warnings: Soy
The beef used is ethically raised, meaning it is guaranteed to be free of growth hormones and additional antibiotics. The cattle have partial free range access to roam about and graze on grass the way nature intended. As a result, the highest ingredient rating that can be awarded is a Very Good (9/10) rating.
The liquid marinade is comprised of a poor brand of soy sauce and water.
Some healthy ingredients listed are spices and garlic powder.
The sugar level is acceptable at 4 grams of sugar per 28 grams of jerky. The salt level is high at 430mg of salt per 28 grams to lose a rating. Our preference is 350mg of salt or less per 28 grams of jerky.
This jerky qualifies to have no sodium nitrite, or any other similar unhealthy preservative added. This jerky does not qualify to have no MSG added, as the highly processed cheap flavor enhancer hydrolyzed soy protein is used in the soy sauce to lose a rating.
Decent (7/10) – Ingredient Rating
BRONCO BILLY’S BEEF JERKY – TERIYAKI BEEF JERKY
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
When I open the bag, I smell the teriyaki. It is quite pungent. The pieces are generally small in size, and they are sliced somewhat thin. The jerky has a dark hue, which I would interpret as a healthy amount of marinade was used. The jerky is hard and chewy, just the way our forefathers intended. There is no oily residue on your fingers handling these strips.
The first flavors I encounter are salt, sweet (not too sweet though, which is a relief), soy, garlic, as well as natural beef. I was expecting sweeter for a teriyaki flavor, but Bronco Billy’s has duly impressed me by moderating the amount of sweet.
It is a better than average teriyaki flavor, which is typically not a favorite flavor of mine. This jerky is quite tasty, and even enhanced whenever you bite into the fat, of which there is some. The fat tends to absorb more of the flavor and makes the experience more tasty and enjoyable.
I can’t say that I’m blown away, but I am very much enjoying this flavor. Kudos to Bronco Billy’s have made a very tasty treat here, worthy of a 9/10. Gentlemen?
Here is what Mark had to say about this Teriyaki beef jerky flavor from Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky: “Thanks Paul for the great taste review. We are mostly in unison here. This teriyaki flavor is addictive with deeply marinated strips of jerky. Granted there is not much of a classic teriyaki profile with an Asian flair, but a tasty take on a teriyaki flavor profile while not going overboard with the sweetness.”
“Due to COVID-19, we are down to just Paul and I for this review. I can see why this teriyaki flavor is appealing. There definitely is some ‘wow’ factor present, but a Very Good (9/10) taste rating seems warranted.”
This 3 ounce/85 gram bag of jerky sells online for $7.99, which works out to $2.66 an ounce. That rates as an average price. The price per ounce does go down if you order in larger quantities.
Very Good (9/10) – Taste Rating
