Today I am reviewing Jeff’s Famous Beef Jerky Sweet & Smokin’ BBQ flavor. This is the newest beef jerky flavor from Jeff Famous Beef Jerky.
If you’ve not read any of our previous reviews of Jeff’s Famous Jerky, the company is out of Big Bear, California. Founded and is managed by 20 year food service veteran Jeff Richards who began experimenting with jerky recipes in the early seventies. What started out as a jerky making hobby for friends and family turned in to a real business.
Jeff’s Famous Beef Jerky makes a variety of flavors all of which are available at Armadillo Pepper: Cajun, Jalapeno Carne Asada, Black Pepper & Sea Salt, Cranberry Jalapeno, Orange A Peel, Sweet Teriyaki and Real Bacon Jerky.
Sweet & Smokin’ BBQ comes in a 3 oz, resealable package. Ingredients include beef, soy sauce, Worchestershire sauce, brown sugar, chili sauce, natural smoke flavoring, sea salt, spice, pepper, vinegar. There is 1g fat and 6g protein in each serving.
As you can see in the picture the jerky almost looks like cuts of steak with a medium thickness. The jerky is moist to the touch and very easy to tear. You immediately get the aroma similar to a BBQ sauce when you open the package.
On the first taste you immediately get a sweetness from the brown sugar and then the beef. The Worchestershire sauce plays a secondary role. This is a great tasting jerky and is recommended for someone who is looking for jerky with a Kansas City BBQ sweet type of flavor. It is definitely a big contrast to a black pepper jerky.
