Of Course A Korean BBQ Joint Would Make Great Jerky


A few weeks ago, we wrote that popular Korean BBQ chain Gen offered a delivery service where you could get your frozen meat delivered anywhere. We had no idea, despite many visits to the Korean BBQ house, that they actually made beef jerky.

A feature of Gen Delivers is that you can order bags of beef jerky online. Kind of an add-on to your frozen meat order, or simply if you’re in the mood for jerky and nothing else. The flavors are : Spicy, Hawaiian, and Cajun.


They weren’t bad, and in fact, a pleasant surprise.

We passed the bags around the office to see what fellow Foodbeasts thought of the product. Here’s what the few that weren’t taking an afternoon nap had to say:


Initial thought: the bag should come with a plastic zipper so it’s resealable. The Hawaiian’s good.


What jerky company is making jerky with legit cuts and KBBQ-level marinades?


I feel like jerky is either the really soft delicious kind or the super hard gas-station kind and this somehow sits in the middle.

Each bag is about $6, which you can order from Gen’s online delivery store.



Cheesy Pineapple-Stuffed ‘Bacon Pockets’ Will Change Your Life


This recipe for Cheesy Pineapple-Stuffed ‘Bacon Pockets’ comes from the same bacon enthusiast who brought you Hawaiian Burger Bacon Balls and Bacon-Wrapped Mac & Cheese Meatloaf. Yes, crap soup (gotta love the name) is at it again, this time with a makeover of a microwavable standard: The Hot Pocket.

Except that instead of simply wrapping a hot pocket in bacon (what did you think this was, amateur time?), the crust was replaced with strips of bacon and stuffed with a hearty helping of mozzarella cheese, turkey pepperoni and pineapple chunks.

Although, in the recipe crapsoup uses that turkey bacon nonsense. We’re going to let that temporary lapse in judgement slide this time. Ok, so maybe we didn’t change your life but hey, we bet you really wanna sink your teeth in some juicy, crispy bacon right now.

Unless you’re a vegetarian, then ew.

EAT THIS: Hawaiian Burger Bacon Balls Stuffed with Pineapple & Oozing with Provolone


There was this, and then there was thisHawaiian Burger Bacon Balls. Stuffed with provolone melting into sweet pineapple chunks and enveloped in a carnivorous hug of ground beef and bacon, these babies are the new hors d’oeuvres-gone-beast.

Tell me you don’t want to wrap your lips around these luscious pieces of juicy meat and bite down as cheese oozes down your chin. You can’t, because you want to. Oh. So. Badly.

Head over here to check out the recipe by crapsoup, the same mad, glorious genius behind Bacon-Wrapped Mac & Cheese Meatloaf.

Mango Habanero Joins Hawaiian Kettle Chip Family

The Hawaiian Kettle Chips have been around a long time. So long, in fact, I’ve been in love with the Sweet Maui Onion flavor since middle school. The Original was a good pick during high school since it didn’t leave too much of a mess in my mouth or hands. I’ve recently gotten into the Luau BBQ as I started going to college. Great flavors, great chips.

And now that a new Mango Habanero flavor will be added into the mix, I feel like I’m finally able to begin a new chapter in my life. The chips are slow cooked and seasoned with sweet and spicy care.

Hawaiian BBQ Plates: Pineapple Chicken & Chicken Katsu

Victor and I were cruising around looking for something to eat that we both hadn’t had in awhile. Well wouldn’t you know it, we came across this Hawaiian BBQ place that did the job. Victor (VYaniePhoto) stuck with the classic chicken katsu, where I myself tried the pineapple chicken. If I had to choose 10 things to eat for the rest of my life, macaroni salad would be one of them.
