A few weeks ago we asked for your help choosing which products to enter into the Second Annual Jerky Contest. The Jerky Contest was organized by Doug Spiros of PeppersAndMore.com along with Scott Roberts of ScottRobertsWeb.com and was open to all manufacturers of beef jerky products. The format was a little different this year from last, with all products going into one category.
We are honored to have been featured on Beestbeefjerky.org, the beef jerky review site featuring over 150 brands. Bestbeefjerky.org had previously reviewed Sograte Beef Jerky giving it 4 and 5 star ratings, yet some of the statements and comments encouraged some rethinking and slight modifications to our recipes. New reviews of the revised recipes have now been posted with detailed thoughts about the changes and all 5 star ratings.

The way I see it, a product is never in a "final" stage. There is always room for improvement, just ask Coca Cola. Oh wait, that was a failure. Well, not every improvement gets a positive response either. So the Original Coke recipe made a come-back but new Coke products are constantly sent to market.
