Dr. GONZO’s Uncommon Condiments has a full line of products, many of which are peppermashes, sauces, and other condiments, but they also have a delightful beef jerky on their menu of stuff. The Good Doctor sent me a bag of their “Industrial Strength” One Hump Jerky to try and I was all-too-happy to fill my beef jerky craving with a bag of this spicy snack food. Here’s the website description:
BT Smokehouse of Sturbridge, MA has produced a great batch of all natural beef jerky for us using our “Industrial Strength” Supermash and our One Hump Dry Rub No. 2. We call it our “Industrial Strength” One Hump Jerky. This jerky is great for those quiet moments when your alone with a cold beer and yer free hand is just ichin’ fer somethin’ to do. It has a nice tingly heat on the back end that will have you reaching for more (Jerky & beer). Take it camping, fishing, hunting, riding, beaching, biking, road tripping etc. Available in ¼ pound packs with the almost legal label. Enjoy ‘em but don’t forget to share with your friends!!
Ingredients: soy sauce, wuhstashear sauce, molasses, whole grain mustard, onions, garlic, “industrial strength” supermash & one-hump dry rub no. 2
Taste: This is a dryer, more crispy jerky than most
and you get a seemingly fair amount of it in this four-ounce package. The one overriding thing I can say about this jerky is that it’s definitely left-of-center from a majority of other jerky products I’ve tasted. Not overly hot (perhaps 2/10 to me), it has flavor in abundance…much of it owing to the fabulous peppermash and spice mix that is used in making the jerky. Seldom have I ever thought that mustard, onions, and garlic would be good with my jerky snacks, but such is the case with this. Definitely different, but in this case different was definitely good to me.
Overall recommendation: Very munchable and healthy, I liked this product as a change of pace compared to other jerky recipes I’ve had. Dry, spicy but not hot, and very tasty, four ounces of this jerky will only make you want another bag. Try some for yourself. Enjoy!
