The Beef Jerky Outlet debuted their first store in 2010, and this Niagara Falls, New York BJO opened its doors in May 2017. Now there are over 100 Beef Jerky Outlet stores located across the USA, where free samples of jerky usually are available. However, Niagara Falls Beef Jerky Outlet store 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 it is located in Kodak, Tennessee, near the Smoky Mountains.
The next review on Beef Jerky Outlet will focus on a 2.25 ounce/64 gram bag of their original flavored pork ostrich jerky. This bag was purchased at the Niagara Falls Beef Jerky Outlet store in Niagara Falls, New York at a Premium Outlet.
Ingredients: Pork, Ostrich, Salt, Dextrose, Less Than 2%: Spices, Water, Garlic, Paprika, Starter Culture, Cultured Celery Powder, Sea Salt.
The pork and ostrich used is guaranteed to be free of growth hormones or additional antibiotics. As a result, the highest ingredient rating awarded is a Very Good (9/10) rating.
The texture of this jerky is chopped and formed. As a result, two ingredient ratings are deducted without a natural whole sliced strip of jerky.
Some healthy ingredients are added, such as garlic, spices, and paprika.
There is no nutrition facts table provided. As a result, the exact sugar and salt levels are unknown.
This jerky does qualify to have no sodium nitrite, or any other similar unhealthy preservatives. Instead, the main preservatives used are salt/sea salt, and cultured celery powder to a lesser extent. Admirably, this meat stick does qualify to have no MSG added.
Decent (7/10) – Ingredient Rating
Beef Jerky Outlet – Original Pork Ostrich Jerky
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
When I open the bag, I smell pork. The pieces are large in size, somewhat similar to a slice of bacon. The jerky is thin and soft, as well as very, no, extremely moist. There is a copious amount of oily residue left on your fingers, not to mention any other surface you place the jerky on.
The first flavors I encounter are salt, pepper, garlic, next to no sweet, and pork. I have no idea how ostrich tastes as I have never tried it before. The jerky is so incredibly oily, far more oily than jerky should be.
The jerky appears to be chopped and formed, however, the flavor of the jerky is quite good, which once again proves that chopped and formed isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Outside of the extreme oiliness, which makes for a messy eat, I have no real complaints about this jerky. A 9/10 in my estimation. Gentlemen?
Here is what Mark had to say about this original pork ostrich jerky flavor from Beef Jerky Outlet: “Thanks Paul for the great taste review. I have tried ostrich jerky before, where the taste more resembles beef jerky. While the flavor of pork seems to be noticeable, the taste of ostrich is pretty much non-existent.”
“Very true in that this jerky is extremely oily and greasy. Being chopped and formed this jerky is quite easy to chew. I have no real issues with this flavor either, where this jerky is enjoyable but is arguably too salty tasting.”
This 2.25 ounce/64 gram bag of jerky sells in the Beef Jerky Outlet store for $4.49, which rates as an cheap price. It would seem I noted the wrong price when I bought this jerky.
This non-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. There is a picture of an ostrich on this bag. This bag is vacuum sealed, the best way to keep this jerky fresh tasting.
There are no slogans printed on this bag. The only fact printed is “Value Pack!”
Some bag categories missing are a nutrition facts table, a company web site, and a blurb printed about this flavor or company.
