The Legendary Hatfields & McCoys join the Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series

There is no question that one of the most famous legends in the American South is that of the Hatfields & McCoy feud. The famous feud began in 1862 and spanned almost 30 years in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky and West Virginia. It is a tale of family, honor and vengeance that by it’s end left twelve family members dead, six in prison, and one sent to the gallows.

Over 150 years later, in 2014 John T. Hatfield and Big Jim McCoy of the two famous families finally came together to present their Legendary Hatfield & McCoy Family Brand Whiskey and Jerky Products.

The Legendary Hatfield & McCoy Family Brand Jerky has come aboard as a sponsor of the Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series. “Truck and tractor pulling are as much of a staple of southern culture as is the legendary Hatfields & McCoy’s family feud,” says BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “We’re proud to be able to bring a little of that history to the drivers and fans our sport.”

The Legendary Hatfield & McCoy Family Brand’s line of beef jerky includes “Black Powder” Beef Jerky, which a nice blend of black pepper, sea salt, and teriyaki, and “Sweet Whiskey” which is which is marinated in Hatfield & McCoy Whiskey for 24 hours and is their most unique flavor. Two Bacon Jerky flavors include “Spicy Revenge”, an award-winning Sriracha-based flavor as well as the sweet and salty “Breakfast Maple”.
