CJ’s Dehydrated Products Inc. debuted its Jerk My Meat jerky brand in February 2022. They produce a variety of Beef Jerky, Trail Mixes, Dehydrated Fruits, and Spices. Owners Joe and Corey were both born and raised in Sault Ste. Marie and have been friends for over 15 years. Both were in the Canadian Armed Forces, and both have culinary backgrounds. They bring a unique flavour to their company.
Joe and Corey have a love for the outdoors and an even greater love for traveling and experiencing new adventures. During one of their adventures away with their wives to the Caribbean, they discovered a love for their main product (JERKY!) and wanted to share it with others.
Jerk My Meat debuted its store on 518 Queen Street East in downtown Sault Ste. Marie in September. I had the opportunity to visit their store, where I have positive expectations for them. This Jerk My Meat jerky brand name is located in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada, and is distributed under CJ’s Dehydrated Products Inc.
The next review for Jerk My Meat will focus on a 3.5 ounce/99 gram bag of their Pepper-Racha flavoured beef jerky. This flavour is described as being made with local beef, natural flavours, and is low in salt and sugar content with no MSG. The jerky was graciously submitted by co-owner Joe.
The 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.
There is no nutritional facts table provided. As a result, the exact amounts of salt and sugar are unknown.
JERK MY MEAT – PEPPER-RACHA BEEF JERKY
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
When I open the bag I smell spicy vinegar. Is there even vinegar on the ingredient list? Anyways, I digress. The jerky is cut into small, thick pieces. The jerky is rigid and relatively dry, just as our forefathers intended.
When I bite into the jerky I am bombarded with a strong and succulent pepper flavour, a solid amount of salt, and a kick, not strong, but exceptionally tasty. I believe I am also detecting a natural beef flavour. This flavour of jerky is ridiculously scrumptious. It is hitting big time on the pepper flavour, and I am picking up on the sriracha flavour.
Yummy, this is a slam-dunk, no doubter, insanely delectable jerky treat that rates 1000/10. The more I consume, the more intense the heat from the sriracha. A very enthusiastic two thumbs up!!👍👍 Gentlemen?

This Jerk my Meat Pepper Racha jerky is absolutely delicious and highly addictive. The seasoning is well balanced, and the flavour profile has an awesome complexity. The flavour of the beef is well complimented by the great flavour of black pepper and sriracha, the saltiness makes each bite pop, and a slight sweetness marries well and brings out another dimension of the black pepper and sriracha. I especially appreciate the smokiness, and like the rest of the seasoning, it remains in the background.
This Jerk My Meat – Pepper Racha Beef Jerky is in a league of its own and a true star. The flavour and texture are firm and not leathery, and its aroma is appealing. This jerky is not overly spicy; it is all about the black pepper and sriracha and comes out in spades. I highly recommend this little gem, as it truly deserves a 10/10 Taste Rating. Godspeed!
Here is what Mark had to say about this Pepper-Racha beef jerky flavour from Jerky My Meat: “Thanks and Paul and Stéphane for the passionate taste reviews. Something seems amiss with me on this review. I do not pick up on the sriracha or peppered level nearly as much as Paul and Stéphane. I sampled this jerky on multiple occasions, and the taste profile did not seem to materialize for me.”
“Once again, the texture was excellent, being dry but still easy to chew, and no issues whatsoever with the natural beef flavour. The spiciness from the sriracha never exceeded a 1 out of 4 on a heat scale. Apart from black pepper, salt, and sriracha a little bit, there is not much else going on here. With Paul Rekker and Stéphane Leclerc at solid 10 ratings, and myself at an 8 rating, a Very Good (9/10) taste rating will be awarded.”
