On an Occasional Bacon Break I Enjoy Beef Jerky!

On an Occasional Bacon Break I Enjoy Beef Jerky!

By Rocco Loosbrock

This may come as little bit of a surprise to some of you Bacon Freaks out there, but the truth is, "Man (And Woman) Cannot Live On Bacon Alone!" That means even Boss Hog himself has to occasionally take a little break from my own gourmet bacon and other fine gourmet products provided over at and feast on something truly, uniquely special.

When I`m not eating pork and lobster, you can bet I`ll be eating beef! One of my favorite beef flavor experiences from outside of The Bacon Freak Pig-Pen comes to us in the form of some extremely delicious "Beef Jerky" and "Steak Kabob Chunks" from a really great company called Enjoy Foods in Fontana California.

They`ve got some absolutely amazing traditional beef jerky, offered up in four maximum mouthwatering flavors and styles such as: Hot, Jalapeño, Old Fashion and Teriyaki. But that`s only the beginning! As you know, I`m a huge fan and a little bit of a connoisseur of smoked meats, and "Enjoy Foods, International" has four different versions of their mind blowing Hickory Smoked Beef Jerky as well: Hot, Sweet & Spicy, Teriyaki and their original "Old Fashion" style jerk.

When I`m not in the mood for Jerky and craving something with a little more depth and succulence, I have their delicious "Steak Kabob Chunks." My favorite is Jalapeño, but you can also get them in Hot, Old Fashion and Teriyaki, which to be honest with you, gives Jalapeño a pretty good run for its money in the derby to be my favorite flavor of the bunch!

OK, you know I won`t lie to you and I`ve made it clear for years that I`m not a huge fan of "Turkey Jerky" and probably never going to change. But I do have friends that eat the stuff, and according them, the "Turkey Jerky" made my "Enjoy" is far superior to most of the other Turkey Jerky out there. It comes in: Hot, Old Fashion & Teriyaki.

These guys definitely know precisely what they`re doing and they take it very seriously, which impressed the heck out of me. They`ve been bringing you gourmet jerky since1971 and have just gone through a major overhaul of their operations to increase both quality and customer service above their already exemplary levels.

Besides the obvious re-branding and repackaging efforts with a colorful new graphics, they have recently purchased their own fleet of delivery trucks, including a refrigerated eighteen wheeler to pick up their meat and other ingredients, thus assuring the utmost freshness.

New meat slicers and other major pieces of equipment have been updated to present a more consistent quality as they continue processing their products with the same recipes, made only name brand ingredients such as Kikkoman Soy and Teriyaki sauces, C&H sugar, and fresh garlic.

Plus the proudly assure us that they use absolutely "NO MSG or Preservatives" and all orders are made fresh to order. To be honest with you, these guys really put out a great product and if I were to out looking for something bodaciously "Beefy" that we don`t carry over at ourselves over at, then the place I would turn to make sure I truly "ENJOY" my snack would be our good friends over at "ENJOY!"

Hey everyone, enjoy "Enjoy!"
