A New Frontier

I believe we need to move into a new area with our beef jerky campaign. Now, y'all might be wondering, "I wonder what these crazy wackos are thinking up this time?", well dear readers, I believe we must expand the campaign into the whole Hippie, Vegan, Moonbat, Nutjob, Animal Rights activist area. Now, I don't want to offend those who aren't the ravenous, deranged type of animal activist and/or vegetarian. You're alright, as long as you don't go around doing crazy things like pouring red paint on those who wear fur or protest everytime someone wants to cut down a tree. Now, I figure that this will come off kind of hostile, but I say it with the best of intentions. I also gather that most everyone who visits this site and stays to read our opinions, is a meat eater and/or conservative, so I assume that most of you are saying "'Bout damn time!" Well, that's how I feel. So we must wage war for all those who like their steaks rare and in gigantic portions. For those who aren't afraid to kill their own supper. For those who don't mind a lambchop or rack of spareribs every once in a while. We must hold the line and stay the course in the fight against the Beef Jerky Nazi(which is going quite well at the moment) and increase our war machine into the realm of the hippie moonbat vegetarians who, if left unchecked, will ruin our way of life and violate our rights to eat meat and lots of it. Help us fight this unspeakable evil.

Oh, anybody have any good jerky brands they enjoy? Email them to me because we are creating an endorsement page to give those without the ability or time to create their own jerky a list of recommended jerky brands. Anything sound good? Now, I'm hungry and am going to go enjoy some beef jerky.

We've Got Recipes!

Listed Below is a collection of Jerky recipes. Test them out and tell us what you think. If you have a recipe and would like to add it to the list then please, email it to either Tailhook4077@hotmail.com or Mustang23_Assume@hotmail.com and provide your name and website URL if you have one, and we will be more than happy to add it to the list.


First off, here's a link to instructions on how to make real, Texas-style Beef Jerky. And then, if you're still not satisfied, you can check HERE for a huge list of jerky recipes. And then, there is the self-proclaimed World's Greatest Beef Jerky Recipe. If you still want more, then check out the recipes that our allies and operatives have sent in.



---------------------------------------------------

8 Tbs Soy Sauce
8 Tbs Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tbs Ketchup
1/2 tsp Hot
Shot( mixed red and black pepper found in spice aisle)
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Onion Salt
Pepper Flakes (Optional. Add more or
less to make it more or less spicy)
1/4 tsp Liquid Smoke
Purchase a 6-8 lbs tender rump roast. Have your butcher slice it for jerky, about 1/8 inch slices. Arrange beef slices in a shallow pan and pour marinade mixture over the beef. Marinade for at least 4 hours. Place slices on dehydrator trays and dehydrate at 145-150 degrees. It will take 4-15 hours for the meat to dry. One hint the dehydrator book says is to absorb the excess oils from the meat occasionally as it dries and to wrap in paper towels for a couple hours prior to packaging to absorb the oils as this extends shelf life. I sometimes replace the pepper flakes with Jamaican Jerk Seasoning for a different taste and much spicier jerky.

Eating Away At His Resolve

Aha! It appears that the Beef Jerky Nazi's impregnable defenses and venomous propaganda are merely a facade. He has posted yet another installment in the Golden Rules Series. He has finally conceded somewhat to the greatness of beef jerky. Read it:



V. If you can't decide what items to put in a Care Package, I've made a short list:

1. Junk food (NOT including Beef Jerky)
2. Magazines that are 'at most' a month old.
3. Electronics.
4. DVDs.
5. Human Crap (I'd rather eat this before eating one more strip of beef jerky)
6. Batteries
...#3,556,426. All right, Beef Jerky

Notice how he put the concession to jerky at the bottom. Either he learned the error of his ways while out in the field or our campaign to get him to change is very effective. Keep up the good work everybody. Also, I must commend everyone who sent in jerky recipes. The page will be up soon. If anyone else has any recipes please email them to myself or to Mustang and we will get them up as soon as possible. Also, the site has received a bit of a makeover and is looking pretty darn good. Everyone commend Mustnag23 for his valiant work in the fight against the evils of the Beef Jerky Nazi.

The Support for Jerky is Spreading

Here a couple more places I have found support of Beef Jerky lately.

Chuck, who writes From My Position... On the way!, has this post:

The great jerky debate:
I figured I’d better weigh in on the Jerky wars. I like beef jerky. Hell, I’ve made beef jerky. It has the two things that sustain life: salt and red meat.

Also if you haven't noticed Mrs Greyhawk, at The Mudville Gazette, has been keeping tabs on the Jerky wars in her daily round up of Milblogs called the Dawn Patrol. But today I found this nice little comment:
Jerky Wars

TMG Editor's Note: The Greyhawks LOVE jerky!
Awesome!

Although this is not really support for the good guys it is worth noting. The Beef Jerky Nazi found this one. Blog Critics blurb about the Jerky Wars.

An Jerky Solution For A Bad Habit

I have just come across a cool new jerky snack. It is shredded beef jerky. This is pretty awesome. Finally, it gives me something I can carry around easily and discreetly and whenever the need arises, I can pop some jerky in my mouth and enjoy its sweet meaty goodness. This also provides a healthy alternative to tobbacco chewers. WHen you feel the need for a fix, just bust out the can of jerky. Good Stuff! I am definitely going to get some.


I am also looking into creating a recipe page. If anyone out there has any jerky recipes, please email them to me or Mustang23. It would be greatly appreciated. We will make sure to give you proper credit.

In Need Of Assistance

Does anyone out there know a lot of Latin? I need help translating something from English into Latin. This is part of the process of coming up with an official motto. If anyone has any ideas for mottos or tag lines, please post them in the comments.


I was also thinking of doing a random title bar thing like Clarity & Resolve. It's pretty neat and would prove to be effective. Any good motto ideas that aren't picked will probably end up on the list of title bar things. I provide my motto idea below:


In order to win in war, one must have beef jerky

Jacki is Swiss?

I recieved an Email from Jacki. She works with Books For Soldiers:
It has come to my attention that CJ has invoked the name of BFS on the jerkyfordummies site. In consultation with an administrator with BFS, it was decided that BFS should maintain neutrality in the Jerky Wars so our troops don't think that they can't come to BFS and request jerky OR think that if they are anti-jerky that they are not welcome.

Jacki
Neutral in the Jerky Wars
So if you are neutral, there is a site for you as well. Go Check it out.

My Weekely Caption Contest has the blog fight in mind.

Our Mission

We at Bloggers For Beef Jerky are here to promote the greatness and versatility of Beef Jerky, and all jerky meats, as a snackfood item. We believe that Jerky is one of the best snacks around and that it is great for satisfying that urge for a quick bite to eat or staving off hunger between meals. We also believe that it is a combat essential item and that every soldier, sailor, airman, and marine should have some issued to him him or her as part of their gear.


We also find the criticism of jerky disheartening and hereby declare war on the Beef Jerky Nazi and his allies. We hereby lump them into a singular group called the Axis of Naughty and Misled Persons. The ROE for this war shall follow later on. For now, there are no restrictions beyond the admonishment to at least try to keep it classy and not resort to name-calling, except when warranted. This war will require the coorperation of our allies and everyone involved with Bloggers For Beef Jerky.


We also wish to extend the olive branch of peace and unity to all other Jerky eaters and consumers of the world. Whether they eat beef, buffalo, turkey, goat, chicken, deer, and any other types of Jerky that we have failed to mention. We do limit the types of jerky all other than human jerky as it is only consumed by cannibals and cannibals scare us. Other than that, we wish all jerky lovers everywhere good tidings and peace and ask that you unite with us in order to combat the threat that Beef Jerky Nazi represents to our cause.


On this date of 4 June 2005, AD, we hereby sign this statement(just post in the comments) to declare our support and love of all things Jerky and declare war on the Beef Jerky Nazi. We are resolved to action as this threat is too great to ignore.

A New Workerbee

Howdy and welcome to Bloggers For Beef Jerky (B4BJ for short)! My name is Andrew and you might recognize me from such blogs as The Silent Republican and as a constant commenter in the Blogosphere. I am now going to be helping out around here so Mustang23 doesn't have to do all of the work.



Football: An American Tradition

As you may all know, I play football and am in constant need of something to eat, preferrably high in protein. I also have an inexplicable habit for chewing on things. If you ever get the chance to see my pencils and pens and straws and even those neat little coffee stirrer thingies you get at Starbuck's, you would immediately notice that I have chewed the heck out of them. So, in repsonse to these needs, I eat beef jerky. It provides a healthy, hearty, high-protein, flavorful, and chewy snack. That's why I support beef jerky, and why I think JP needs to be retaught the value of this wonderful snackfood. Hence, I have signed up here. Have a nice day and I'll be posting here.

Did you know "Beef Jerky Nazi" has a cousin?

The Bad Guys have a new HQ

All though it is very hard to read, the supporters of the "Beef Jerky Nazi" have ramped up their own new site: Beef Jerky For Dummies.

Word from the front

Myron, of Southern by Blog!!, asks the soldier he is supporting his opinions on the matter and get some straight talk.
I think those other blogs are more accurate about what the Jerky Nazi really wants-free electronics. He's being cheap and wants things for free seems to be the real bottom line.
He goes on and makes some acusations that I wouldn't make, I am not sure if they trooper knows that his was supposed to be a fun blog fight but his comments are now out there.

Motto Needed and New members

I am in search of a good Motto for us in this blog fight. let me know what you come up with.

I also want to Welcome a couple of new member blogs:

We Have Logos

Phin, of Rabid Goldfish fame, has created some logos for us.

Feel free to steal these and post them on your site. Make sure to link back over here.

Also let me know if you post this on your site and I will add you to the blog roll.

Don't forget to ask me for the blogroll code if you want to add that as well.

The Battle is heating up

Operation Beef Up Our Troops

I have already received e-mail (Thanks Jeffery) asking for my address so Beef Jerky can be sent my way. I have said before that I didn't start this site to troll for stuff from readers, just from my friends and family back home, especially Mustang Mama.

Just to set the record straight I don't want anybody to send me stuff. I am here trolling for all of the troops, even "Beef Jerky Nazi". I am an Officer and I make quite a bit more money than the normal trooper. But For the good of all troopers I have found a program run by USO. (I love the USO, they are great)

So if you feel so inclined you could always donate to Operation Beef Up Our Troops. I sincerely appreciate all offers but I would rather see this blog fight go for the common good of all troops, not just me.

Thank you.

The Fight Begins

The "Beef Jerky Nazi" has thrown his hat into the ring and now it is time to put up or shut up. He has even gone as far as Publishing a Reference

This is a call out to all who truly believes in the spirit of giving... giving Beef Jerky.

We know have a Blog Roll here. If you would like to join in the fight e-mail me at mustang23_assume-at-hotmail-dot-com. If you would like to post the blog roll on your site I will send you the code.

I could use some help putting down these jokers.
