I love jerky and so does my family. What is your favorite kind of jerky? I personally love spicy, but my kids really like terikyaki jerky. I was recently introduced to a company that is local here in Vegas. I love supporting local businesses. I was very excited because they make jerky! I want to introduce you to JoJo's Jerky. They offer a wonderful assortment of flavors of jerky and more.
JoJo's jerky isn't just available to those in Las Vegas. You can order your very own directly from their website. I am very excited to find out that JoJo's will be opening a store right here in Vegas in the Container Park that will be located downtown. This park is scheduled to open in mid October. You will be able to visit the JoJo's store and pick up all of your jerky favorites too!
JoJo's actually began as Hans Homemade Jerky. The jerky was made by Hans Hippert. He would use the jerky for gifts for friends and family. When it began he was not selling the jerky. The name soon became JoJo's Jerky after his son's friend fell in love with the jerky. His son's friend was named Johnathan. He was always asking Hans for more jerky! This sounds similar to my kids. They love jerky.
JoJo's offers some traditional flavors like Teriyaki Beef Jerky or Original Pepper Turkey Jerky. These are 2 flavors that my kids love. I have tried both of them too and they are excellent. They are full of flavor and seasonings. My daughter loves the Teriyaki Beef Jerky from JoJo's Jerky. I have to keep an eye on her, so that she won't eat the entire bag too! I like that the Teriyaki has a great flavor, but isn't super sweet. The Original Pepper Turkey Jerky is seasoned with a nice amount of pepper, but not overdone.
Now I want to introduce you to some of their more unique flavors. I fell in love with all of these. I am a huge fan of trying new things and I love spice and heat. I first want to tell you about JoJo's Triple Threat Jerky. This is available in chunk pieces or in a stick variety. The Triple Threat Jerky is for those of use that love heat. My husband and I love super spicy food. He even said "wow that has a nice amount of heat." This jerky is for those that love hot! This is definitely that. The jerky is not just hot though. It has an excellent background flavor and is very tender.
What are some of the other tasty jerky flavors that JoJo's offers? They have Carne Asada Beef Jerky, Caribbean Jerk Beef Jerky, Carloca Spicy Carne Asada Beef Jerky, Sweet Heat Spicy Thai Chili Beef Jerky and more. What flavor would you want to try? I really enjoyed all of them. I thought the Sweet Heat Spicy Thai Chili Beef Jerky was one of the most interesting flavors I sampled. I loved it. It combines the delicious Thai flavors with spice. I like that it had a zip to it, but it wasn't overly hot.
JoJo's Jerky has not stopped at just jerky though. They also offer dry rubs. I bbq at least a 2 times a week here in the Summer in Vegas. It is just too hot to heat up my kitchen and turn the oven or stove on. I am always looking for ways to add flavor to my food. The rubs that JoJo's offers are great for chicken, beef, pork, fish and veggies. I even like to use the ranch rub on my baked potato to add flavor! I plan on making myself some baby back ribs soon with the Triple Threat Dry Rub. This is an intensely flavored and spicy rub. What would you try it on?
