Dried Tough; Flame Grilled to be Tender

One of the fondest memories I have growing up was going to the grocery store with my mom to pick out treats for the week. It was almost always the same three things: Ball Park Hot Dogs, beef jerky, and some kind of animal shaped fruit snacks. Not much has changed in twenty years.

When I heard Ball Park was making jerky I was just a tad bit excited. Whether it’s beef or pork, if it’s jerky, I want to snack on it. Ball Park Flame Grilled Jerky starts with lean cuts of beef or pork grilled on an open flame to give it a tender texture. After the meat has its well-deserved time in the flame it is seasoned in 1-of-5 flavor combinations: Original Beef Jerky, Bourbon BBQ Beef Jerky, Peppered Beef Jerky, Barbecue Pork Jerky, or Teriyaki Pork Jerky.

I was sent all five flavors to review, and without any hesitation ripped open the bags and tried a sample of each. All five — beef and pork — were equally tender from being grilled over the open flame. The texture and quality is Grade A.

If I had to suggest a flavor that is a must-try, despite loving all five of them, I would have to go with the Bourbon BBQ Beef Jerky. This could be because I’ve never had that flavor of jerky before, or perhaps it just tastes as amazing as it sounds.
