Next in the series on Crazy Horse Beef Jerky is this Sweet variety. See my previous review of their Original beef jerky.

Crazy Horse Beef Jerky is a brand made by Dave Wenrich in Hellam, PA, who started making this brand about nine months ago, based on a old family recipe that he got from his father, who received the recipe from his father, who received it from his father.

Dave smokes all of his jerky from USDA certified bottom round in a homemade smoke house using maple, oak, and fruit woods, and sells it locally in some shops and on his eBay store.

Miernicki's Amazing Jerky

miernicki's amazing jerky
Miernicki's Amazing Jerky recently redeveloped its recipe after we published our original review last December 2016, and sent us more samples for a review. The company is based in Santee. CA.

The company was founded by Paul Miernicki, a PGA golf professional who spends much of time running a golf instruction course in San Marcos, CA. Considering how popular beef jerky is with folks who like to whack little white balls over well-manicured lawns, he chose to perfect his own meat snack recipe instead of spending so much money on "jerky soaked in chemicals".

This new recipe effectively keeps the same emphasis on coriander, vinegar, and black pepper, but eliminates some extraneous ingredients, and lowers the amount of sodium. It's still labeled as, "all natural", but the company includes that it's gluten-free too.
