Firehouse Jerky - Mild

Firehouse Jerky - Mild

Grade: C-


I ordered this jerky after reading about it on a comment from a fellow reader. All I've got to say is, blah. This is below average generic jerky. This stuff tastes exactly like any jerky that you can buy in any gas station anywhere. The texture is too thick for my liking, and would be okay if the flavor would make up for the texture, but it doesn't. The jerky has a smokiness and there is a combination of a few good flavors mixed in, but I can't get over the bland generic flavor of this jerky. There's no reason to go into anymore details on this jerky and if you want to give this jerky a try, you'd be better off buying some Bridgford jerky from the Dollar General because it tastes just about the same. But if you're into bland forgettable jerky, you can order this stuff at www.firehousejerky.com. One other thing, I hate jerky companies that make bold statements like, "Firehouse Jerky offers three unique flavors: Mild (Traditional), Pepper and Hot (and we mean HOT). We hope you try our one-of-a-kind beef jerky. We know that once you do, you will never look at jerky the same way." Then when you do try it, it's the same as a lot of jerky you find in gas stations across the country.

Harold, first of all Happy Holidays, and thank you for this review. it was me who asked you to review it. i felt the same way as you when i tried this stuff ( well maybe worse) its plain garbage, even our dog couldn't chew. don't know how my DS liked it. price is nothing to brag about, their "bold" statements are a BOLD LIE, and this is tastes like some past-dated dry and totally forgettable inferior product, made of some low quality cutsNpieces of meat. YUCK. you were very generous giving it a C-, i think F- is too much for this crap. Thanks a lot for your honest reviews and keep up the great work.

I agree, this stuff is crap. I also tried one of their sausage roll logs. Consisted of fat with fat flavoring and some spices. How does crap like this stay on the market?
