Appalachian Beef Jerky Company is a relatively new player in the meat snacks industry based out of Brighton, MA.
This brand offers the following varieties:
Appalachian Jerky Co- Primal Smoke: This variety is gluten-free, and contains no sugar, soy, or preservatives. Just lean steak, chilis, vinegar, salt, garlic, onion pepper, red pepper and real hickory smoke. The ingredients all seem to combine well to create mostly a garlic & onion flavored jerky with a noticeable smokiness. There isn't really any heat to this, considering the addition of hot sauce, though it still has a light spiciness along with the black pepper. But, the vinegar from the hot sauce does show up in light amounts, just enough to give this jerky tangy chewing.
