Sograte Original Flavor Beef Jerky


Sograte Original Flavor Beef Jerky

Grade
: A


When I first got this in and looked at the jerky in the package, I knew that I knew I was about to have some great jerky, and I wasn't wrong. While I prefer a slight thinner jerky, this jerky wasn't overly thick, but a little on the "thicker" side, but not over board thick. It's texture is the way I like my jerky, kind of on the dry side when you first bite into it but it becomes a nice moist chew when you start munching on it. The flavor is unbelievable. A nice smoky flavor, but unlike a lot of jerky that uses liquid smoke, this has a natural hickory smoke flavor that's not overpowering which allows the other spices shine while eating it. There is a touch of sweetness and a little spiciness but again, both don't overpower and it makes for a good tasty chew. I also like the use of paprika sprinkled on the jerky, it makes the jerky look really stand out visually. You really won't go wrong if you buy this jerky. The jerky can be bought on their website http://www.sograte.com, and for $5.00 for 3oz of high quality jerky, you can't go wrong. They also offer very reasonable USPS shipping (for my 3 bags, it was only $4.95 to ship), which more companies should look into. After trying the original, I'm really looking forward to trying their other flavors!

I disagree with the review posted here. I ordered a few bags of Sograte, the Teriyaki,Black Pepper and two other varieties.

I found this jerky to be very difficult to eat because the meat was so tough. When I could find an edible piece, I found it to be overly salty and tasted of a overpowering burning newspaper smoke.

Varieties like Texas Heat and Chili Lime were overly seasoned and also difficult to eat.

I would rate this brand as "average" at best and would not recommend it.

For a dry jerky there are many other brands that produce better jerky than this Don't waste you money!

I completely agree with the review. I have to say that I love beef jerky and have found only a hand full that are truly incredible. From the very first bite I was a fan of Sograte. I am very picky when it comes to flavor and this hit the jerky spot for me.. I would even say it is one of the best flavors I have ever found .. So try it I know you will like it as well..
