There is no nutrition facts table provided. As a result, the exact sugar and salt levels are unknown.
Colored Collagen Casing that contains an artificial color to lose a rating.
This meat stick does not qualify to have any sodium nitrite added as sodium nitrite is used outright as a preservative to lose a rating. Admirably, this meat stick does qualify to have no MSG added.

Bronco Billy’s – Traditional Beef Stick
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
When I cut open the package, I smell soy and vinegar. The meat stick (pepperette) looks like any other meat stick. There is no oily residue on the meat stick.
The first flavors I encounter are salt, at a high level, which I like, pepper, garlic, natural beef, and vinegar. The meat stick is quite bloody tasty, I am enjoying it immensely. It is definitely a few cuts above your average meat stick. The only small issue I am having with this meat stick is there is no “snap” from the collagen casing around the meat stick.
This meat stick is otherwise spectacular, succulent and addictive, and hard to put down. A definitive 9/10, and if the stick has a “snap”, we’d be insisting on a 10/10. Gentlemen, over to you…
Here is what Mark had to say about this Traditional beef stick flavor from Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky: “Thanks Paul for the enthusiastic taste review. I could not have said it better myself. Sure this is a great-tasting beef stick, but there is pretty much no ‘snap’ to this texture at all. Tastewise it is a solid 10 taste rating, but keeping with tradition a rating will be deducted.
“Due to COVID-19, the Group of Seven is down to just three for this review. Mark M. was at a 9 rating also due to the lack of ‘snap’. It is unanimous that a 9 taste rating is warranted. Take a bow Stoney Point for yet another fantastic product.”
This 2.2 ounce/62 gram beef stick sells online for a $2.99 in Stoney Point Farm Market stores, which works out to $1.36 an ounce. That 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 the cowboy Yosemite Sam shooting two guns into the sky.
There are no slogans printed on this bag. The only fact printed is “Made in USA”.
The only bag category missing is a nutrition facts table. Commendably, a phone number is provided for customer inquiries.
