Pat Boone pounds his All-American meats for conservative causes
Pat Boone, that icon of pure American goodness, has partnered up with a Colorado Springs company on a line of Pat Boone All-American Meats and will start selling his "delicious, tender, juicy, USDA, hand-trimmed, aged beef" on November 1. Here's the official word from the All-American website:
patboonemeats.com launches November 1, so this photo will have to do for now, Boone fans.
Pat Boone All-American Meats was born out of a passion for excellence, purity, goodness and bedrock Americanism...and the love of great steak!
In 2009, the legendary performer and TV personality Pat Boone began discussions with co-founder, JW Roth (also co-chairman of Accredited Members Holding Corporation) related to the concept of building a line of premium, U.S. grown meats, rooted in old-fashioned American business values, and committed to charity. JW -- a life-long rancher and cattleman -- pulled together a top-tier meat science, business development and research team, and concluded that America indeed needed just such a company.
So in July of 2010, Pat Boone All-American Meats was launched, dedicated to the finest meat products, the best customer service, and principled stewardship of resources, giving a substantial portion of the proceeds to fine charitable organizations that support the team's deeply-felt American values.
Under Boone's deal with Roth, 50 percent of his royalties from the company will go to nonprofit organizations that will help push an "all-American revival," including the Parents Television Council and Focus on the Family.

The star says that MC is short for Man of Christ rather than Master of Ceremonies -- but what if he used the initials to promote a new food line: MC Hammer's Madagascar Chickens? Mmm, love me some chickens that have not evolved since the Stone Age -- and with the island being a protected refuge, "You can't touch this."
