Ria's Roadkill Jerky - Turkey

rias roadkill jerky
Ria's RoadKill Jerky is now selling its own turkey jerky. According to the company, it's made from 100% breast meat, and slow smoked for 6 hours.

Ria's Roadkill is run by Eden Van, based out of Long Beach, CA. Eden got started in making jerky after receiving compliments on his barbecue recipes. He uses USDA inspected meats from his local meat market. All jerky is dehydrated in a smoker.

This new Turkey Jerky is claimed to be available now from their Etsy store.


Turkey, water, cane sugar, soy sauce, garlic, onion, black pepper, lemon juice, monosodium glutamate


The first flavors I pick up are sweet and smokey. The soy sauce comes in soon after. The chewing brings on more of the sweet, along with touches of garlic and onion.

For being a smoked turkey jerky, it has a well-pronounced smokey flavor that comes on right away, along with a smokey aroma that hits you once the bag is opened.

Otherwise, the primary taste profile is that of real wood smoke, with a significant sweetness, over a soy sauce marinade and touches of seasoning.

The meat consistency looks excellent. Thick slices of turkey breast meat, with a slight moist feel, chew fairly easily. They take on a meaty chewing texture, and feel just like real tender, turkey breast meat.


This turkey jerky from Ria's Roadkill offers up the great taste of real wood smoke in thick, meaty slices of turkey breast meat. I found it easy to chew, with a chewing texture very much like roasted turkey breast. Unlike the company's beef jerky, I was only able to get a light amount of natural meat flavor. It's mostly just smoke, soy sauce, and sweet that I taste. But, I love the flavor of real wood smoked meats, and I was impressed with the meat consistency and chewing texture.

Rating: Good (4/5)
