Jerky Dynasty - Black Pepper

jerky dynasty
Jerky Dynasty is a brand started by Chris Miller. It actually started a few years ago as an online retailer of jerky, offering brands like Lawless Jerky, Jeff's Famous Jerky, and others. Recently, the company launched its own line of jerky aptly named, "Jerky Dynasty".

According to Chris, Jerky Dynasty is "old fashioned", clarifying that it's hand cut, hung in a smoke house, with no liquid smoke.

This Black Pepper variety is described by the company simply as, "mouth-watering good".

Ingredients

Beef, water, sugar, salt, spices, hydrolyzed soy protein, maltodextrin, dehydrated garlic, oleoresin, black pepper, cure salt, corn syrup solids.

Review

The first flavors that come to me are a black pepper and light salt. There's a light smokiness as well. The chewing brings on more of the smokiness, but some garlic and onion flavor, perhaps a little more strong on the onion.

With respect to the "Black Pepper" labeling, it holds up well. I get a well-noticed black pepper flavor, a little more than the company's Original variety I reviewed last week, but not over the top. The pepper tastes freshly cracked, with that sharp, pungent taste. I'd rate the spiciness as "mild medium" on my heat scale (level 2 out of 5).

Otherwise, the primary taste profile is that of a light wood smoke flavor, supported with black pepper seasoning, and backed up with salt, garlic, and onion. It's very comparable to the company's Original flavor, but with a bit more black pepper.

The meat consistency looks excellent. Practically all meat, mostly tender, soft, yet retaining some chewiness. It's very meaty, practically a steak-like chewing texture.

Verdict

This Black Pepper beef jerky from Jerky Dynasty does a great job of delivering its advertised flavor with a prominent peppery profile, freshly cracked, without going over the top. It has the same old fashioned quality as the company's Original variety, primarily from its wood smoke flavor and steak-like chewing texture. It's just toned up with more of the peppery flavor for those who want some extra tongue-dancing definition.

Rating: Good
