Ed's Roadhouse Jerky - Sweet Red Pepper

Ed's Roadhouse Jerky - Sweet Red Pepper

Grade: A

In case you just started reading my blog, I'll remind everybody once again... I think Ed's Roadhouse makes the most unique jerky out there today. His flavors are unique and always hit the mark. This new flavor from Ed's is no different. The new flavor that Ed has out is appropriately enough named, Sweet Red Pepper, and guess what... the name describes it perfectly. The jerky has a definite, very pronounced red/green pepper taste along with a very light sweetness. The flavors combine and make for a great jerky. I would have never imagined that a red/green pepper flavored jerky would taste so great, but it does. The sweetness and pepper flavors match up perfectly. The texture is the same as all other Ed's jerkys, nice and moist and it melts in your mouth. You can tell that Ed takes pride in his jerky and really wants to keep amazing us with unique flavors. Like all of Ed's jerkys, you can order this one from his website, www.edsroadhouse.com . A big selection of different size packages are available and he always offers great shipping prices. Another winner from Ed, oh yea, I am still holding my breath for a pickle jerky!

Harold, Red Peppers are my favorite raw or with a dip I love the natural sweetness, so I gave this jerky a try and "WOW" great red pepper flavor and with out the spiciness" I really dig this jerky so does my father who can't eat spicy stuff! He keeps asking me when am I going to order some more lol....

Would definitely Recommend this jerky especially if you like sweet red bell peppers.

Harold. it's quite comical how you delete comments you do not like. I was hoping that folks at Ed's see it from a potential customer's perspective and possibly make shipping just a bit more affordable. Instead, you mask genuine comments, in efforts to safeguard your personal relationship with Eds. i guess you would do anything for free jerky??

Anonymous, I removed your post because it wasn't true. I went to Ed's Roadhouse site it states on the front page, $5.75 shipping for orders up to 1LB. If you ordered 4oz then the shipping should have been $5.75. If you have a personal vendetta against me, then don't post anonymously.

no personal vendetta here, not at all, as i like your site and visit it often. i tried ordering 4 different flavors of 4 oz each - thats 1 lb. shipping came to just under $11, which is contradictory to what they state. i just tested it again and same thing comes up. should have read my post fully before deleting. Nothing but TRUTH, and i hoped Ed's would notice that. Never once did you think that they might have a glitch, and what it SAYS on the site might not be the case? You acted before you tested it, and that's wrong.

I got you, I thought you tried to order 1 - 4oz bag and said the shipping was $10.75. I can't speak for Ed's, but I think where the confusion comes in is "up to 1 Lb", once you reach a pound it is no longer "up to", but a pound. I have no clue what the shipping rates are to mail things because I don't mail stuff out too much, so I can't comment on that part. But I do know that a lot of companies charge higher rates than that, and some charge lower, and I also know that a lot of companies charge a lot more for their jerky than Ed's.

If this person has or had a beef (haha) with Eds Roadhouse don't know why they would not have called them direct. I have been ordering jerky from several different company's for awhile now and have found that if I have a question or a problem the only way to solve it is to go direct to the source. I haven't tried Ed's yet but was curious because of this post. Just ordered and I had no problem getting 4 4oz bags and getting the shipping to come out to $5.75.
Just my opinion but anonymous should have called them if they really wanted to order.
By the way, I really like your reviews. Do you have any new one coming out soon?

To Anonymous above you obviously have a vendetta against Eds why didn't you just call them ??? HMMM it seems you had no intention of making a purchase just problems it seems to me! Why are you making a big stink about it and getting hostile with Harold??? There has to be a reason? HUH?? Is Ed's Jerky better then yours hahahah

Love your Jerky Ed,

Signed,

Hot Peppa, Feel The Heat!!!!

guys. dont really care about who this anonymous person is, but it seems that all of you are ready to attack anyone who posts anything negative or seemingly controversial on this site, regardless of whose jerky it is. Its like an army with a narrow scope, and inability to see outside of it. You see a comment - interpret it a certain way,,,and poof....here comes your fiery response. whats the real purpose? there is a saying - "no publicity is bad publicity", so let people say what they want, and let them hang themselves. trust me, they will do it without you attacking and accusing them - i think that doing so, prevents many people from posting. I, for one, was going to post something for an unrelated jerky product, but for fear of being attacked by "watchdogs" on this site, i decided not to. good, bad or otherwise, just let it be, and let those coniving folks dig their own grave. Just my 2 cents and thank you for listening.

got some to try from my friend - awesome tasting, so prompted me to look for some more reviews ( how i found this site) and go buy some, but i just dont't see myself spending $32.75 for a pound of jerky. thats insane. we usually get big johns or buffalo bills for about half that price, shipping included. granted, these guys dont have interesting flavors ed's does, but fathoming such a high price tag in this economy is tough.

Harold Dufrene said...

Carlo,

I've learned a long time ago that cheaper isn't always better. I usually never buy jerky by the pound anyway, but when I break down the costs of the jerky I do buy sometimes it comes up to more than the $32.75 a pound that you mentioned and sometimes less. For example, Pappy Kershenstein has recently started selling their jerky for about $4.00 for 1.2 ounces! That's about $53 a pound when you break it down, but I still buy a bag every now and then because I enjoy it. So in other words, don't but down a company just because their costs and ingredients cost more than other companies and have to charge a little more. Remember, you get what you pay for.

I must add this comment because I just ordered 4-4oz. from Ed's and they only charged me the standard 5.95 for shipping. It takes a while to get my jerky, but it is fresh and worth the wait. You can try all of the different types in the 2 oz. and they still charge the same shipping charge up to 1 lb. YOU CAN NOT BEAT ED'S ROADHOUSE JERKY..AGAIN LISA IN TEXAS
