Makers of the World's finest beef jerky products

Ronnie Mingua began experimenting with making beef jerky back in the 1990s. He shared his efforts with neighbors and friends, soon realizing he had come up with something different and superior to all other beef jerkies on the market. From these humble beginnings, Mingua Beef Jerky got its start.           

Today, the Mingua Beef Jerky Company still prides itself on using its old-fashioned, all-natural recipes which offer outstanding products to customers across the nation. The recipes are a family tradition, passed down from generation to generation.   

Migua Beef Jerky uses Enviro-Pac CHU-2000 equipment to cook its meat to USDA required levels for both moist or dry operation. Mingua Beef Jerky wants you to become one of its many satisfied customers by sampling its quality hand sliced, all natural beef jerky. We know you’ll love it and come back for more, again and again.   

Our recipes and our quality ingredients, hand-cut from solid pieces of beef, are never chopped or formed like other brands, making our products superior and one of a kind. That would make our products similar to this week’s Protein Packed Performer, Class of ’25, QB/ATH, Justin Hisle from Nicholasville, Kentucky ’s East Jessmine High School, wouldn’t it?     

Justin Hisle found himself squarely in the saddle in ’21, his freshman campaign. For nine weeks, he was the man

The offense was his to captain. He became the guy whose job it was to “pull the trigger.” That is tremendous pressure for any young player.

How did he do? Well, under the circumstances, we feel he showed tremendous promise.

Hisle completed 69 of his 130-passing attempts for nearly 1,000-yards (921) with 7-TD passes. He threw 10-picks, a number with which he was far from satisfied but a number which did evidence a certain courage in the line of fire to deliver the football into spots even he wasn’t mature enough to complete. 

That will change. The wonderment of youth eventually gives way to both age and experience. The lessons that youthful engagement summon often stay behind.

Hisle showed some mobility. He rushed the ball 83-times from scrimmage and gained 180-yards, scoring a rushing TD, and finishing 5th on the team in offensive scoring. Rushing stats from a QB can be misleading.

Sacks get subtracted from the overall total. A QB getting sacked isn’t completely the QB’s fault.

Hisle is 6-0 and weighs 185 pounds, putting him on track, frame wise, depending on how he finishes physically to play football at a very high level. He has also impressed coaches outside of Coach Bowlin for whom he plays in the 5A classification’s 7th-district.

Hisle was selected a National Undergraduate Combine All-American. This means he performed very well at camps and combines, speaking well about the prospect’s speed, mechanics, and overall athleticism.

Right now, entering his sophomore season next Fall, this is a player still finding his way. 

We believe it entirely appropriate to feature Hisle this week in this article. We also found his efforts deserving of nourishment. 

Mingua Beef Jerky agreed this young man could use a bolt of protein. They volunteered to send him some straight away.

Join us next week as we honor another worthy player. Until then, pop some Mingua Beef Jerky in your mouth and savor the quality and flavor which sets it apart from all the competition. Remember, our product is superior and one of a kind; just like East Jessamine High School’s Justin Hisle.
