Ball Park Just Made it Easier to Live a Tough and Tender Life

#toughandtenderI’ve known all about Ball Park franks since I’ve been a kid. As a huge fan of hot dogs, these suckers never failed to satisfy.

Well now it seems the Grilling Gurus behind America’s favorite beef hot dogs have hit another home run! This time, around, they’ve concocted Ball Park Flame Grilled Jerky! Dried for toughness and then flame grilled for a uniquely tender texture, Ball Park Flame Grilled Jerky is available in five mouth-watering flavors:

  • Original Beef
  • Bourbon BBQ Beef
  • Peppered Beef
  • Barbecue Pork
  • Teriyaki Pork


Okay, so I’m a huge fan of jerky. And I’ll be completely honest with you here. These are really good! I mean really, really good.

I normally only buy beef jerky but I have to say my favorite of the bunch here was the Teriyaki Pork! It was certainly the most tender of all and just an incredible flavor.

They all were great, though. And it’s amazing how they do have the toughness of jerky (for us guys who like to really chew our food), but they also had a real tender texture to help get that great flavor across.

For us dads, it’s, well… tough to be tough, while still showing our tender side. So I took a long hard look at my life. I tried to see how I’ve taken some tough moments and turned them into tender ones.

Take a look:


Yep, doing weight lifting is a tough way to exercise! Gotta get those biceps ready for the Gun Show!

Of course dropping the weight on your foot is a great way to make your toes real tender.


Studying can be tough, especially when you have no clue what the difference is between igneous and metamorphic rocks.

Reading to your kids, however, can create some really tender moments in your life.


Cutting down your enemies with a blue-blazing sword is one tough way to come out on top.

Having a playful lightsaber battle with your boys is a tender way to build some geektastic memories.


Ripping open some Ball Park Flame Grilled Jerky with your teeth is a tough way to dive into these delicious morsels.

Peeling open the resealable pouches and gently caressing any of these five delicious flame grilled flavors is a tender way to enjoy a great snack.


Any way you slice it, Ball Park Flame Grilled Jerky is the latest (and greatest!) way to mix some tough and tender snacks into your busy lifestyle. Available now, I suggest giving them all a shot to see which flavor you enjoy the most.

How do you turn a tough moment into a tender one?

  1. I have yet to see this product. We too arehuge fans of BallPark brand. They just are consistently good and a decent price. In fact I am making chili dogs tonight. I will have to look for this!

  2. Wow – who knew Ballpark did jerky! I thought it would be about hot dogs based on the brand. My husband and daughter are jerky fans. These sound like a neat treat for their stocking this year.
