Jerky-King Beef Jerky Breakdown

by Lori on May 27, 2016

**Guest Post from Sylvia Steiger from Team Rhett**


When I got the opportunity to try out Jerky-King’s unique beef jerky, I jumped on it. I’m what you call a “jerky person”. Gimme the jerky! If I can make it, find it, buy it, eat it, hide it (come on, I have 7 kids who also love it) try it– you can bet your bottom dollar I will. So, needless to say I accepted.


Jerky King promptly sent me a loaded package of their Premium Exotic Jerky. I hadn’t heard of their company before but as I read, I was excited to report:

– operated and owned locally in the USA

– they run various holiday specials (Father’s Day / Free Shipping, etc)

– offer mix and match packs so customers can pick and choose what they like

– A+ customer service!

From the get go, I was impressed with Jerky King because they carry such a wide variety of exotic jerky. I like trying wild “gamey” foods, so I knew we would get along great! They carry unique jerky like buffalo, peacock, venison, alligator, elk, duck, kangaroo, pheasant, ostrich, pork, and wild boar. My own observations (their labeling) told me that most, if not all of their jerky is mixed with beef. Their packaging is vacuum sealed, easy to open and perfect for a snack in the car. Pretty quiet too, if you happen to be hiding in the closet from kids.

Low Down on the Taste Tests

Here’s what I sampled and my opinions:

Kangaroo: So excited to try this one! Loved the texture, very firm and moist. Mild flavor, delicious!

Alligator: One of my favorites! Mild spice, very flavorful, not too chewy as alligator can be sometimes.

Elk: Another favorite. Great flavor, some spice after the bite is gone. Texture is perfect, very moist.

Venison: From one hunter to another: the venison was delectable!

Buffalo: Excellent flavor, very distinct. Easy to eat.

Maple Duck: My least favorite of the bunch, only because I’m not a big duck fan. It was sweet and dark, with a meaty taste.

Pheasant: Sweet mild flavor. Easy to enjoy! I loved this jerky and would order it!

Venison Jerkyfinal


Bottom Line:

Even if the duck wasn’t my favorite, it still passed the texture and moisture test with flying colors. Not a single piece I tried was tough or dry.

After moseying around Jerky-King’s site, I found it easy to navigate and thought their selection was unbeatable as far as jerky goes. Most meats are available with different spices and styles, so that was great. The variety is bar-none! I give these guys two thumbs up!


Where are all my Marvel fans at?

*raises hand*

How about the Benedict Cumberbatch fans?
