Vic Guido teamed up with Richard Cresswell in 2014 to create Red Truck Beef Jerky – a small, family-owned business that sustainably sources premium cuts of whole-muscle beef shoulder, right here in the USA. The result is the most tender and lean jerky on the market. For the past five years, they’ve focused almost exclusively on making their products accessible in physical stores. Today you can find them in Dick’s Sporting Goods, Kroger’s, Giant, GetGo, Ace Hardware, and many more spots. 10% of their online proceeds to Wounded Warrior Project.
In 2020, they started on their direct-to-consumer online journey but were myopically focused on their customer’s experience. They’re coming to you directly so that they can serve you and engage with you more meaningfully. From engaging with them on social platforms to devouring their delicious products, your success is their success.
The next review for Red Truck Beef Jerky will focus on a 1 ounce/28 gram bag of their Teriyaki beef pork stick. This flavor is described as delivering on everything for everyone. The jerky was kindly submitted for review by CRO Tyler.

RED TRUCK BEEF JERKY – TERIYAKI BEEF PORK STICK
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
When I cut open the bag I smell very little, if anything. The snack stick looks like any other pepperette, just at a darker hue.
When I bite into the snack stick I taste beef/pork, excessively sweet, not much if any salt, pepper, or garlic.
Come to think of it, it doesn’t even exactly capture the prototypical teriyaki flavor. I taste more fruity than teriyaki.
Hate to say it gentlemen, but I am not much impressed at all of this particular flavor, and cannot rate it any higher than a 5/10.

The Red Truck Beef Jerky Teriyaki Snack Stick tastes good and its texture is fine. I am questioning the authenticity of the Teriyaki flavor, as it tastes more like Honey and Garlic to me than Teriyaki.
The texture is unremarkable, and there is no snap due to the collagen casing. There aren’t any outstanding flavors, and the taste is rather common with nothing jumping at me. The sweetness is at a reasonable level, as it is to be expected from a Teriyaki flavor.
The taste is fine and I believe it would be more accurate to call this meat stick Honey and Garlic.
I could not find anything special with The Red Truck Beef Jerky Teriyaki Snack Stick, as a suggested Teriyaki flavor. Perhaps it would do better if it was labeled more appropriately. I’d rate it between 7 or 8/10.
Here is what Mark had to say about this teriyaki beef pork stick flavor from Red Truck Beef Jerky: “Thanks Paul and Stéphane for the honest taste reviews. I more or less agree with each of your takes. True that the teriyaki flavor does not come across all that well. It’s debatable if it’s too sweet tasting. Plus, there is no ‘snap’ to the texture whatsoever. While enjoyable tasting, I am not Beverly impressed either. With Paul at a 5 rating, Stephane at a 7 or 8 rating, and myself at a 6 rating, an Alright (6/10) taste rating will be awarded.”
