There Is A “National Jerky Day”

If you wanted to have an excuse to stuff your face full of beef jerky, here you have it—since 2012, June 12th is, officially, National Jerky Day within the United States. The Wisconsin Beef Council established the holiday to create awareness about jerky, as well as to give us the perfect reason to eat all the beef jerky we want for a whole day. During 2014, Jack Link’s beef jerky company set to celebrate the holiday in the most solemn way known to man—they built a beef jerky replica of Mount Rushmore and named it “Meat Rushmore”. I am sure the presidents would be honored.
