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 ’24 QB, Kizer Sloan from Hindman, Kentucky’s Knott County High School, wouldn’t it?
We just mentioned in awarding this to a QB a week ago that we liked to “spread it around” to other positions. Then Kizer Sloan goes and has a week we just can’t ignore.
Funny aside; we could have awarded this to Cameron Hergott for his performance against Paintsville. In the end, Sloan just edged out Hergott for the jerky!
QB, Kizer Sloan (’24) completed 25 of 37 passing attempts for 475-passing yards on the night with 4-TDs passing against no interceptions. Sloan also rushed the ball six times for 42-yards with another score carried over the goal line.
All told Sloan accounted for 517-yards in total offense, just nudging out Hergott’s 508-yards (Hergott was 17 for 32 for 255 through the air and rushed the ball 21-times for 246-yards). Of course, Sloan completed 68% of his passing attempts. Hergott completed 53% of his.
Hergott had a hand in his team’s crossing the goal line six (6)-times. Sloan accounted for five (5) TDs throwing or rushing. It’s a game of inches, isn’t it?
Mingua Beef Jerky enjoys distinguishing and then rewarding, publicizing, and feeding young men who lend considerable value to the team. With the play witnessed by one of “our guys” this past Friday night, we thought Kizer Sloan could use some nourishment and maybe a sweet T-shirt!
For the T-shirt and the bolt of protein, we asked our friends at Mingua Beef Jerky to send him some. Like always, they were thrilled to oblige.
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 Knott County’s Kizer Sloan.
This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
