Makers of the World's finest beef jerky products

Clay County QB (’24) proven to be a model of efficiency and production in win over Perry

Tate Rice is a guy who people want to claim is a ‘dual threat’ QB but someone who drops back, sets up, and delivers the football very efficiently and well. “QB Hit-List” believes him to be among the very best QB’s in Kentucky in his graduating class. We would have to agree.

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.    

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.  

Tate Rice…among the very best QB’s in Kentucky in his graduating class…

Fletcher Long and “QB Hit-List”

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, Tate Rice from Manchester, Kentucky’s Clay County High, wouldn’t it? 

Tate Rice has his Clay County Tigers standing at 5-3 on the year with Magoffin County and Garrard County standing between Clay and a 7-3 regular season. This past Friday night, Clay County faced a tall task.

Perry County Central came to town and they were sporting a 5-2 mark upon arrival. Good coaches achieve results, not make excuses, and Mark Dixon is among the very best around the mountains at coaching the game of football.

Good coaches achieve results, not make excuses,…Dixon is among the very best…

Tate Rice proved himself up to the task. Rice completed 19 of his 21-passing attempts for 290-passing yards and 3-TD’s. Rice scored a rushing TD for good measure. Most importantly, Rice helped lead his team to a hard-earned victory (30-27) over the visitors raising its mark through eight (8) games to 5-3.

Clay will be home for Magoffin (3-5) before finished on the road at Garrard (2-6). Translation…chances are good the Tigers may slide into the playoffs with a 7-3 regular season mark, bent toward a long playoff ride, and making some noise around the 4A classification.

We shall see. We wish them God’s speed and all the luck in the world.

Tate Rice, in probably the biggest win the team has had this season, had quite a night. We felt a jerky-worthy one.

Mingua Beef Jerky and we decided this talented and accomplished ’23 QB could use a bolt of protein. The company 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 Clay County High’s Tate Rice.

This is HB Lyon reporting for Kentucky Prep Gridiron reminding you that WE’RE JUST CALLING IT LIKE WE SEE IT and don’t forget to SAVOR THE FLAVOR!
