The Texas barbecue influence can be found all over the world, so anytime we hear of a great idea featuring anything related to it, we want to share it.
I was listening to Austin’s, Dudley and Bob w/ Matt morning show , and Dale Dudley mentioned some tasty beef jerky that used Stubb’s Spicy Bar-B-Q sauce. The beef that’s used is brisket cut into strips and coated in the sauce that has a slow burn, according to the website. So you get a bit of salty/sweet going on.
According to the website, Duke’s products are all-natural without added nitrates, preservatives, artificial ingredients, colorings, and MSG. It also looks like careful consideration has been given to the sauces used for the specialty jerky’s like this one. (See more flavors here) This is the Stubb’s product ingredient list:
Ingredients: Beef, Stubb’s Spicy Bar-B-Q sauce (tomato puree [water, tomato paste], sugar, distilled vinegar, molasses, brown sugar, salt, onion powder, mustard flour, spices, garlic powder, chili pepper powder, ground red pepper, chipotle pepper powder, extractives of black pepper), brown sugar, water. Contains 2% or less of salt, sugar, spices, natural flavors, torula yeast, molasses, vinegar.
With the company having roots in Colorado, it should come as no surprise that Duke’s presence can be felt at one of the many craft beer festivals that go on around the area. For this particular style, Duke’s recommends enjoying an American Lager or an Oatmeal stout. Both of which are suitable for complementing the spiciness.
Texas beers we recommend:
Rahr & Sons Texas Red Amber Lager
Independence Brewing “Convict Hill” Oatmeal Stout
