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, RB Tanner Wright (2022) from Somerset, Kentucky’s Southwestern High School, wouldn’t it?
Tanner played his freshman year at Taylor County before moving over to Southwestern for his sophomore season. At Taylor County, he rushed fro 265-yards and had 6-TDs, not too shabby at all for a frosh.
Wright had to sit out the first five games of his sophomore year. There were some languishing eligibility issues to clear up before the KHSAA gave him the “All Clear” sign. Not uncommon at all regarding kids transferring from one member school to the next.
Once Wright joined the backfield, he sort of exploded onto the scene with 679-rushing yards and 8-TDs rushing on 90-carries. For those of you whipping out the calculator, that is 7.5-yards per rushing attempt for a sophomore playing Kentucky 5A football. Before we forget, he had 22-tackles on defense.
Wright’s junior year he exploded onto the scene. In 12-games of action, over which time Southwestern would go 10-2 and loose narrowly 5A superpower, Frederick Douglas, in the Regional Championship game in Lexington, Kentucky, 21-20, Wright burst onto the scene as one of the top rushers in his graduating class.
Wright carried it 206-times in 2020, gained 1,396-yards from scrimmage, and scored 14-rushing TDs. Very solid production in 12 games playing the likes of Pulaski County twice, George Rogers Clark (6A), and Frederick Douglass.
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 Southwestern’s Tanner Wright.
This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT!
