Bojerky is a monthly craft jerky subscription. Every month you’ll receive 3+ounces in a half subscription, or 6+ ounces in a full subscription. Bojerky concentrates on finding the coolest indie jerky and sending them to you. This review is for the full Bojerky subscription.
We received 3 flavors in this box, which had us a little confused. Because of beef pricing and variable bag sizes this subscription has switched from flavors per month to ounces per month (6 for the full size, 3 for the half size).
The information sheet. This used to get sent via email, or still does and review boxes receive a printout – I’m not entirely sure, but this is the information everyone receives. As pointed out in the sheet, some of the jerkies are only available at regional retailers.
Dried & True All Natural Artisan Beef Jerky – Original Flavor ($12): This has the sensibility of an “indie” jerky. The beef has a good chew to it, with a deep soy flavor and a really nice bakkwa sweetness to it.
Dave’s Meat & Nuts Root Beer Habenero Moist Beef Jerky (
$12.99 $8): The rootbeer accent is pronounced if you are looking for it, but it adds a nice sweet base flavor when left to its own devices. The heat creeps and reaches the to about the top of the comfortably spicy range — any hotter and you would need a drink. The most peculiar aspect of the jerky is the texture — the beef comes in nubs the size of slightly-flattened fun size tootsie rolls, and they retain an exceptional amount of moisture.
Carter’s Deep Woods Style Beef Jerky ($6) This jerky is marinated for 10 days, then smoked. It’s more of a traditional jerky with wood smokiness, a good worcestershire flavor, and some tropical underpinnings. It’s nice and chewy too. This one is a good choice when you need a break from the heat. We received this in a previous month’s box (May).
The value of these jerkies was $26, which was a bit disappointing (BoJerky calculates on shipping costs too). You do have the benefit of not sourcing them or paying for shipping but we would have liked a different flavor than a repeat – although it’s a good jerky and you cannot buy it online!
