Here's just a little reminder of some cool meat related events coming up soon! I know what you're saying..."what does talking like a pirate have to do with meat"? Well, pirates ate a lot of meat! They also helped spread the love of "jerky"! Pirates traded with island natives for several amenities before going back out to sea, including dried meat called "Ch'arki" which later became "jerky". So, ARRRRRRRRRR!
