According to Chris, Jerky Dynasty is "old fashioned", clarifying that it's hand cut, hung in a smoke house, with no liquid smoke.
This Original variety is described simply as, "mouth-watering good and as authentic as it gets."
Beef, water, sugar, salt, hydrolyzed soy protein, worcestershire sauce powder, garlic powder, onion powder, flavoring, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, granulated garlic, black pepper, cure salt, corn syrup solids.
The first flavors that come to me are a light smokiness and light salt, followed up by shades of garlic. The chewing brings on more of the smoke, with an increased salt and garlic, but also a noticeable onion. I can also pick up an unmistakable black pepper in the background. The worcestershire ingredient is quite light.
As far as its claims of being "old fashioned", and "as authentic as it gets", it's actually quite on the mark. This really does have an old-fashioned flavor character marked by the smokiness, black pepper, garlic, and onion. Even the word "authentic" feels supported because of the real wood smoke flavor and its meaty, steak-like chewing texture.
Otherwise, the primary taste profile is that of real wood smoke, flanked by a traditional seasoning blend of salt, black pepper, garlic, and onion. There's also light bits of flavoring coming from the worcestershire. Despite the sugar ingredient, it doesn't taste sweet at all.
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.
This Original beef jerky from Jerky Dynasty has a simple and old fashioned quality that brings about the sense of country-living and an era gone-by. It generated a lot of snackability for me due to its real wood smoke flavor, and its excellent meat consistency and chewing texture. The saltiness tastes high, though the sodium content on the nutrition label suggests it's much lower. Otherwise, each piece I ate seemed to bring out the wood chopper in me, and before too long I was having thoughts of growing out my beard. You may be too.
