Meat Rushmore, Mount Rushmore Recreated With 1,600 Pounds of Beef Jerky


Nothing says “Murica” quite like our national landmarks and dehydrated beef. So, to show some patriotism and to celebrate National Jerky Day, Jack Link’s created Meat Rushmore.

The famous mountainside depicting four of the United States’ most beloved Presidents, was recreated using 1,600 pounds of beef jerky.

The 13-foot tall, 17-foot wide meat sculpture was on display in New York City yesterday for Jerky Day, where passersby were encouraged to take a “selfie” with the sculpture. Isn’t that technically a “jerkie”?




Snap Into Some Slim Jim Meatballs


George Duran of the Hungry channel is at it again — using a particular food item somewhere it doesn’t belong. Or, does it? Slim Jim Meatballs are on the menu, which sees our host grinding up a few of the snappy spice sticks, mixing them with some standard meatball ingredients, and handing them out to innocent bystanders in NYC. The consensus… Indifference.

Beef Jerky Barack Obama and Mitt Romney

Mosaic artist Jason Mecier, best known for his food mosaics of pop culture and mythical figures, has recently thrown his glue gun into the political ring. Created for a promotion for Jack Links, Barack Obameat & Meat Romney [nice!] are made entirely from beef jerky.

Now, we try never to get political here at Foodiggity. But even Romney’s dehydrated meat smile gives me the douche chills. Be sure to check out Mecier’s making-of video below.
