crunchy cow beef jerky
Crunchy Cow Beef Jerky is a brand owned by Elemental Edibles, LC based out of St. Louis, MO. It was started by Brian Gilbert in 2015, who describes himself as a life-long cook and aspiring entrepreneur.

Brian had worked for several talented chefs and business owners, honing his skills in culinary arts and business. It was during his stint as a B2B salesman, that he started making jerky as a hobby, and finally, the idea for this new company clicked. Crunchy Cow Beef Jerky focuses on using high quality ingredients, natural grass-fed, pasture-raised beef, with no artificial ingredients, preservatives, nitrates, additives, steroids, antibiotics, or added hormones. Brian makes all the jerky himself from a USDA inspected kitchen at Saint Louis University's Fresh Gatherings Cafe.

This "Peppered Teriyaki" is described by Brian as offering the "full rich flavor of our family secret Teriyaki marinade with a finish of blended peppercorn, pepper flake, and sesame seeds".

Two Brothers Jerky - Sweet Ginger Teriyaki

two brothers jerky
We reviewed Two Brothers Jerky a couple years ago, but they're back with a new recipe.

The brand is the collaborative effort of two brothers separated at birth, Paul Brock and Eddie Wales. After growing up never knowing about the other, they one discovered they each had a brother. After they reunited, they took a trip out to a lake and realized they both loved beef jerky, and both had this crazy entrepreneurial spirit. Thus, Two Brothers Jerky was born. Now based out of both Durham, NC and Columbia, SC, Two Brothers Jerky features North Carolina grass fed, grass-finished beef, and made with no nitrates.

This "Sweet Ginger Teriyaki" is described as, "sweet and tangy", and claims to have, "the whole family clamoring for more", being made with fresh ginger as the star ingredient, along with brown sugar and soy.

Crazy Horse Jerky - Meat Sticks

crazy horse jerky
New from Crazy Horse Jerky is this line of Meat Sticks. They come in a variety of flavors, including this Original, but also Hot and Cheese & Meat.

Crazy Horse Jerky was founded by Dave Wenrich and Cara Wenrich in Hellam, PA. They started making jerky using an old family recipe that Dave got from his father, and eventually launched this business from it. Wenrich says he comes from a long line of farmers in Berks County, PA where they smoked their own meat using maple, oak, and fruit woods. He continues the same process today, using the same smoking processes, but with USDA bottom round.

This Original variety of their Meat Sticks is described as having, "a nice smokey flavor and a lite snap", going on to say that they're gluten free.

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.

Biltong USA - Spicy Garlic Droëwors

biltong usa review
Biltong USA was among the earliest brands of American-made biltong, dating back to 1996. South African immigrants, Dawid Joubert and Salome Joubert founded the company in Stallings, NC based on the same family recipe that dated back into the 1600s. Over the years, their biltong products helped launched a new meat snack category in the States.

In January 2018, Biltong USA was acquired by a rival biltong brand, Stryve Foods. However, Biltong USA continues on under its own brand, and is still manufactured at its original USDA inspected facility in Stallings.

This Spicy Garlic Droëwors, according to the company, come from their large, fresh pieces of solid beef muscle, and is then ground coarse, seasoned, stuffed into lamb casing, and finally cured. Droëwors is a South African-style meat stick. These are the company's normal sized stick, they also make a thicker variety.
