Ria's Roadkill Jerky - Original

Good things come to those who wait. Ria's was the last brand of jerky to arrive for my review (at least for Round 1) and it was well worth the wait. The original flavor is mild, slightly sweet and a bit smoky. This is upscale jerky that you would serve to guests at a wedding on a silver platter.

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.

Original comes in bite-sized pieces so there is no need to "tear off a chunk". The pieces are moist, tender and almost too good to be called jerky. Once I started eating it, I damn near at the entire bag in one sitting! Yeah, it's that good.

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.
