MIernicki's Amazing Jerky

miernickis amazing jerky
Miernicki's Amazing Jerky is a new brand that launched earlier this year. It was started by Paul Miernicki, based out of Santee, CA.

Miernicki describes himself as a professional golfer who was tired of eating "jerky soaked in chemicals", and thus decided to create a better meat snack.

What makes his jerky unique is that it contains no soy sauce, no sugar, honey, molasses, or any other sweeteners, and that it goes through a special process to preserve the natural nutrients and flavors.

One the newest jerky brands on the market is Chef Craig's Beef Jerky. A product of CJM Products, it's based out of West Kingston, RI.

It's the idea of Craig Mitchell, who a few years ago, had sent me samples of his own homemade jerky, with the intent of launching a business someday. Mitchell received his Culinary Arts degree from Johnson & Wales University, and has been cooking professionally since 1978.

As of this review, the only flavor Chef Craig's offers is this Original.

Among the newest flavors from Lawless Jerky is this Pho beef jerky. See our other reviews of Lawless Jerky.

Lawless Jerky is a brand owned and operated by Lawless Jerky, LLC based out of Santa Monica, CA. It was started by Matthew Tolnick, a former attorney who held a not-so-secret passion for making chewy chunks of dehydrated beef. After a stint as a legal counselor, he decided to throw his hat into the jerky industry and start his own business.

This Pho variety is described by the company as being made with, "...herbs like cilantro, mint and basil; spices like star anise, cinnamon and cloves, and the heat of jalapeno."

Hombre Beef Jerky Sticks

hombre beef jerky
Hombre Beef Jerky goes back to 1982 when it launched in the Kansas City metro area by man named Joe Pyle. When Joe retired in 2010, the brand went offline, and scores of jerky fanatics had to find new fixes.

But in 2014, his son Andrew relaunched the brand in the same area, and the response has since been phenomenal. Hombre Beef Jerky now retails in over 500 outlets and looks to double that by 2017. Interestingly, the brand won Grand Champion Beef Jerky in 2015 & 2016 at the Kansas Meat Processors Association.

Hombre offers two varieties at this time, these "Beef Jerky Sticks", and the "Premium Beef Jerky" which we reviewed a few weeks ago.
