Bacon Jerky

So you’re out in the woods, getting your nature walk on. Or maybe you’re on your way to the fishin’ hole, or back from a covert hidden zombie apocalypse training program, when suddenly…hunger strikes!

You reach into the pocket of your bear-scratch riddled Carhartt jacket for something to silence the ferocious growling of your mighty stomach. What do you pull from the depths? Granola? Hardly, tree hugger. Power Bar? No way, Lance Armstrong. Beef jerky? Maybe once upon a time, back when the world was in black and white. No! You draw from your pocket, a mighty strip of Bacon Jerky!

What is Bacon Jerky?

And now you’re wondering about Bacon Jerky, aren’t you? As you should! It’s delicious! Bacon Jerky is the ultimate go-to snack. It requires no refrigeration or cooking. Need some quiet when you’re on a road trip with the kids? Just give them some jerky! Because you know with each piece, they’ll have to chew extra hard, which equals moments of precious silence.

There are many different kinds of jerky out there in the world. There’s a beef jerky, turkey jerky, mystery-meat-in a tube jerky, and chicken jerky. Sure there’s pork and ham jerky out there so why not bacon jerky?

The mad meat candy geniuses over at Bacon Freak have taken one of the most manly dehydrated meat snacks and pushed it to the next level. And the beautiful part about their bacon jerky is that they have six different flavors of their delicious and one-of-a-kind, Bacon Jerky.

I had the good fortune to get a pouch of the peppered flavor and one of the Summer Tomato BLT and I am here to report my findings.

Unboxing Bacon Freak’s Bacon Jerky

So the 2 ounce package offers up 6-7 thick slices of bacon.

The slices were nice and thick and clearly cut from proper slabs of bacon, not some flimsy machine-shaped hunk of lop-grade pig.

Bacon is not as lean as beef so I immediately noticed that the slices did have a bit of a greasy feel to them (not unlike regular bacon, mind you). I would suggest keeping some napkins on hand.

How to Eat Bacon Jerky

I tried the Peppered flavor bacon jerky first.

The first bite was definitely different from beef jerky. The consistency was not what I was expecting. It’s much softer than beef jerky. No gnawing or tearing required.

You can just bite it right off with your front teeth. No need to worry about jaw fatigue whilst working your way through a bag of this stuff.

The pepper flavor was delicious. It’s not as salty as most bacon, but the pepper rub was plentiful and delicious.

Next up was the Summer Tomato BLT. This stuff was an onslaught of flavor. It was sweet and tangy with some delicious seasonings. It had clearly been glazed so the flavor was more uniform and definitely reminiscent of a BLT.

So, the next time you’re stocking up the ol’ cooler for a trip out into the wilds, leave the plain old beef jerky at home and order up a couple bags of Bacon Freak’s Original Bacon Jerky to fuel both yourself and your sense of adventure!
