Crazy Horse Jerky - Chicken Jerky

crazy horse chicken jerky
The newest offering from Crazy Horse Jerky is this Chicken Jerky, available in both Original and Cajun flavors.

Chicken Jerky seems to be the new Turkey Jerky these days as more and more brands are adding it to their product line up. But where Turkey Jerky was originally introduced as the healthier alternative to beef, Chicken Jerky seems to have the flavor satisfaction that turkey never had.

Redneck Steak Beef Jerky - Moonshine

redneck steak jerky
Next up for Redneck Steak Beef Jerky is this Moonshine variety. See my other review of their Traditional variety.

Redneck Steak Beef Jerky was created by Trae Stokes, based out of Pinellas Park, FL. Trae started the business as a way to earn a living after mortgage crash of 2008 busted his contracting business. Having grown up in the South all his life, he had mastered the skills of smoking meats. On a whim, Trae had smoked up batch of jerky and sold it at a local arts and craft show, and thus was born Redneck Steak Beef Jerky.

This Moonshine variety does not contain actual moonshine or alcohol, instead it was named thus for its little kick of heat at the end. These slices of meat are basted in sweet chili sauce, and smoked over real oak wood for 4-6 hours.

Jedidiah's Jerky - Hot Cowboy

jedidiahs jerky
Based on the company's top selling variety, this Hot Cowboy from Jedidiah's Jerky takes the same recipe and throws on some red chile pepper to sharpen the spurs on this here buckaroo.

Jedidiah's Jerky was started by David Coffey, a veteran of the beef jerky business, having taken his first bite of the industry in 1984, when he went to work for Polley's Beef Jerky. In 2005, he went to work for himself by starting Jedidiah's Jerky. Based out of Beatty, NV, Coffey also runs a chain of beef jerky outlets called, "Jed's Jerky", with locations throughout Nevada and California.

The "Cowboy style" from Jedidiah's Jerky is meant to be a throwback to the old days of campfire cooking, saddle sores, and pesky indians. It's like a "man's jerky", with no sugar added, just simple seasonings and lots of peppery flavor.

Jedidiah's Beef Brisket Jerky - Jed's Famous BBQ

jedidiahs jerky
This "Jed's Famous BBQ" is a new flavor from Jedidiah's Jerky. It's part of their revamped line up of beef brisket jerky.

Jedidiah's Jerky is a brand that we reviewed before (read the reviews here). Some time ago, they reintroduced their line of jerky with new recipes and new branding, and moved their headquarters from Laughlin, NV to Beatty, NV. Jedidiah's Jerky also has since opened up a chain of beef jerky stores called, "Jed's Jerky" throughout Nevada and California.

This "Jed's Famous BBQ", we believe, replaces the company's previous, "Jed's BBQ". It seems that since then, his BBQ has gone famous.

Mike's Jerky - Christmas

mikes jerky
Mike's Jerky recently introduced some new flavors, including this "Christmas". See my reviews of other flavors from Mike's Jerky.

Mike's Jerky is based out of Albuquerque, NM, owned and operated by Mike Grier. It's a New Mexico Style of jerky where its sliced thin, dried crisp, and crunches when you bite into it, yet still chewing like real meat.

This Christmas beef jerky is named as such because in New Mexico, people are often asked to choose between red or green chiles. When they want both, they answer with, "Christmas". And that's supposedly what this beef jerky is about.
