Tester #1: Patrick Vuong

Overall: This will be spicy to only those who burn their tongues on black pepper. The “hot” flavor is really just a mild flavoring, but fortunately the meat itself is the perfect example of what jerky should be: dehydrated, but not dry and chewy and firm without breaking any fillings. Its bag is resealable, though with such a small batch in each package it seems almost pointless.

Tester #2: John Schwartze

Overall: This version labeled itself as hot, but it's nothing that'll have you running to the milk carton. Good stuff overall. Too bad it comes in only a 2-ounce package, but I would surely stock up on these as emergency food. They're tasty and have at least a decent amount of survival nutrients. Bite-size pieces make them easy for children to survive on, as well.

Tester #3: Martin Anders

Overall: Simple is sometimes the best way to go. This straightforward beef jerky is simple, quality jerky with a hint of spiciness. If you're looking for plain jerky with a kick, you've found it. It's rather tender and gives your jaw a satisfying texture to chew on. I'd get in line for more of this.

Notes: Featuring whole muscle cuts of beef and natural herbs and spices, this spicy hot version of Sweetwood Cattle Company's handcrafted beef jerky is made in small batches. It has no added MSG and is nitrate free. Also, the family-owned company is based in Colorado.
