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, and never chopped or formed like other brands, make our products superior and one of a kind. That would make our products similar to this week’s Protein Packed Performer of the Week, Class of ’23, WR/DB, Landon Smith from Knott County Central High School, wouldn’t it?
We have been involved with the Appalachia Prep Combine for quite a few years. We are the Kentucky directors of the combine and responsible for insuring only the best from the Bluegrass garner invitations to the yearly event.
It is the most prestigious event of its kind on this side of the United States for aspiring future college football players. We thought it would be kind of cool, as the ’21 APC took place this past weekend in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, to let the Director of the APC, JT Powell, pick this week’s jerky prize package recipient.
We talked to JT after this event. He couldn’t stop raving about WR, Landon Smith from Knott County Central. Landon is a 6-4, 200-pound WR/DB who’s fast enough to play corner for the Patriots on defense. He is a ’23 prospect who plays where being overlooked by college recruiters is a concern. That is exactly why events like the APC are so vitally important to players like Landon Smith.
Director Powell told KPGFootball, “This kid proved he may be the best WR in Kentucky’s ’23 class. He was the best we saw from the Bluegrass.”
Powell continued, “He made about three ESPN Sports Center quality, one-handed grabs while being covered by some of the best DBs in the Eastern part of America. He backed up his ‘hands’ with excellent route running and incredible ability to high point the football.”
“We believe he’s a FBS-level talent. We expect he is about to ‘blow up’ in short order,” Powell told us.
Well, that certainly seems to say it all. Congratulations to Landon Smith, say hello to the big-time, big-fella.
We thought with the performance described to us by the Director of the APC, Landon Smith might be in need of a bolt of protein. The APC and we decided to ask our friends at Mingua Beef Jerky to send him some.
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 Landon Smith.
