Face De Beu Foods would like to restore the nobility of jerky, which is often seen as fast food and filled with salt and preservatives. Even though their jerky is safe to eat after 12 months, their goal is regularly to renew production to offer fresh jerky. We will inevitably have to reduce our meat consumption and choose our products better in the near future. Their philosophy is to eat less, eat better. Jerky « Face de Beu » meets this definition.
Jerky is Face De Beu Foods’ flagship product, but they also offer ready-to-smoke meat products for BBQ lovers. Smoked meat, pork belly, and turkey breast are part of their offerings, and spices are used in their jerky. They present a podcast every week related to BBQ. « Trip bouffe BBQ » on Facebook, Twitch, and YouTube. A weekly show for BBQ lovers but also microbrewery and distillery enthusiasts.
The orange coloured spice displayed is a traditional BBQ spice ideal for chicken. The green coloured spice is perfect for salad, fish, vegetable sauce, and especially fries and mashed potatoes. The steak spice is for grilling. This Face De Beu Jerky brand name is located in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, and is distributed by Les Ailments Face De Beu Jerky.
The first review for Face De Beu Jerky will focus on a 2.1 ounce/60 gram bag of their Original flavored beef jerky. This flavour is described as being the spirit of their healthy jerky. President/Owner/Managing Director Antoine Trudel kindly submitted the jerky.
This Canadian raised Black Angus beef used is not guaranteed to be free of growth hormones or additional antibiotics. Also, the beef is not guaranteed to have at least partial free range access to graze on grass. As a result, the highest ingredient rating that can be awarded is a Good (8/10) rating.
The only healthy ingredients listed are spices, which includes onion and black pepper.
The sugar is 2 grams of sugar per 30 grams of jerky. The salt level is low at 160mg of salt per 30 grams of jerky.
This jerky does qualify to have no sodium nitrite or similar unhealthy preservatives. Instead, apart from salt, apple cider vinegar acts as a preservative to a lesser degree. Commendably, there is no MSG added.
FACE DE BEU JERKY – ORIGINAL BEEF JERKY
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
When I open the bag I smell nothing except natural beef. The pieces are small in size yet cut to a medium thickness. The jerky is dry and hard, just as our forefathers intended.
When I bite into the jerky, I taste salt and pepper, with very little to no sweetness, which is excellent. I am also picking up a slight onion flavour and a natural beef flavour.
These strips of jerky are quite tasty. They are just the right mix of delectable flavours to properly massage the taste palette, thereby bringing a delicious flavour. It tastes almost exactly like I am eating roast beef.
As a card-carrying carnivore, this brand of jerky is extremely impressive. What a ridiculously pleasing flavour. I find myself gyrating and gesticulating uncontrollably, desperately pining for that next fix to keep me “tranced by the taste”. Face De Beau, this is “Jerky de Beau”, colour me highly impressed. A most obvious and well-deserved 10/10 and two thumbs up!!👍👍 Gentlemen?

I appreciate the usage of the old expression “Face de Beu”. It is clever and funny. The Face de Beu – Original Black Angus Beef Jerky is very flavorful and memorable. The aroma is pleasant, and it appears this jerky has been simmered or at least marinated in a sort of beef broth. The flavor profile is rather light, subtle, simple, and well balanced. Amongst other flavors, I taste mild onion, black pepper, and a slight sweetness in the background.
The Face de Beu – Original Black Angus Beef Jerky is a good representation of an Original Beef Jerky flavor. The beef taste is well represented throughout each and every bite, and the flavor profile is clever and delicious. I really enjoyed this jerky and it’s a well-deserved 10/10 Taste Rating.
Here is what Mark had to say about this Original beef jerky flavor from Face De Beu Jerky: “Thanks Stéphane and Paul for the enthusiastic taste reviews. I could not agree more. The natural beef flavour is supposed to be at the forefront of an original flavour, and it is in spades. Now that Paul mentioned that the jerky tasted like roast beef, there is truth in that statement. With minimal sweetness present, the natural beef flavour shines through and reminds you of homemade jerky.”
“The overall taste profile is a light blend of spices, which is astounding for somebody who appreciates the natural taste of black angus beef. The mild taste of onion is exquisite. Take a bow Face De Beu Jerky. A well-deserved Excellent (10/10) taste rating will be awarded. A very enthusiastic two thumbs up!!👍👍”
This white colored non-resealable bag has everything imprinted directly on the bag, both on the front and back. The bag is vacuum sealed, the best way to keep jerky fresh tasting.
A slogan printed on this bag is “Mangez Moinns Mais Mangez Mieux” (Eat Less But Eat Better). Some facts printed on this bag are “180 Calories”, “30g Protein”, “2g of Low Fat”, “2g of Sugar”, and “320mg of Salt”.
Some missing bag categories are distributor address details, a Canadian Department of Agriculture (CDA) inspected stamp, no English translations, and a blurb about the jerky flavour or brand.
