The Standard hosts city's first "jerk off" contest

MKE Underground is a series that focuses on the grittier aspects of life in Brew City. In respect to younger readers, OnMilwaukee will publish these sassier stories after 9 p.m.

No, it’s not that kind of contest. Geez, people, get your minds out of the sewer. This contest is all about a different kind of meat … jerky!

"This event was created with a couple of guys, drinking some beers and talking about their love of jerky, so we decided, what the hell, let's give it a whirl," says event organizer and bar manager Heidi White.

The event takes place on Sunday, Feb. 26 from 1 to 5 p.m. at The Standard, 1754 N. Franklin Pl.

Participants can dry or smoke jerky from any kind of meat, but it must be made from scratch ‚Äď no store-bought jerky allowed. They must also make enough for people to sample.

To sign up for the contest, go to this Facebook page and leave a comment for White or Standard co-owner Steve Gilbertson.

As White says, "Who doesn't love jerky?"
