Ria's Roadkill Jerky - Chipotle

My second Ria's flavor to try was the Chipotle. Unfortunately, there is very little Chipotle flavor. Only a mild hint. It is, after all, listed as the last ingredient on the list of ingredients. The Chipotle does feel a bit "stickier" than the original, but the flavor is very similar, perhaps a tiny bit spicier. It has a nice sweet and smoky flavor.

The Long Beach, CA company was started in 2011 and is company is operated by Eden Van, Mr Van uses USDA Choice top round in his recipes. Ria's is available through Facebook and eBay. The jerky is hand-trimmed and machine sliced for consistency. The meat is then marinated for 48 hours. They use Hickory, Apple, and Cherry wood to smoke depending on the flavor. Beef jerky is smoked everyday, so that you will get it fresh and fast as possible.
Chipotle comes in bite-sized pieces so there is no need to "tear off a chunk". The pieces are moist, tender and slightly sticky. This is a great all-around jerky with only a little heat.

Riding and Eating Tips
Another benefit of Ria's Roadkill Jerky to those of us who ride on two wheels, the packaging is perfect for riding. The resealable bag will easily fit in my Goldwing glove box, or in a tank bag. You could even keep it in your jacket pocket. The bite-size pieces are also easier to manage when riding.
