Fesperman's Beef Jerky
Description: These are good size pieces of beef jerky, maybe two inches by four inches each. It's a good dark color. It smells strongly of marinade, even through the bag, but not a "bad" strong, just a "this bag isn't air tight" strong. This does feel a tad bit dry, and not so oily, and you can easily pull a piece apart into a more manageable bite sized piece.
Tenderness: 4 out of 5. It's a little dry and brittle, but exactly what you'd want beef jerky to be, not a paper thing soda cracker. It's also a tad bit tough at first, but again, this is how you expect jerky to be. It's not a beef stick.
Flavor: 5 out of 5. Some spices, some beef, and a bit of tang make this the perfect natural beef jerky flavor. If someone asked what beef jerky should taste like, this is the answer.
Overall: 5 out of 5. Well done. If I want to buy a bag of beef jerky to show off, or to take with me on a hike, or generally epitomize this kind of food, this would be it.
