The Duck Dynasty clan stopped by Good Morning America to share their go-to recipes from their cookbook, Miss Kay’s Duck Commander Kitchen, to make at home.
The Robertson family kicked things off with their recipe for duck and dressing, which roasts a whole duck over a hearty cornbread and cracker dressing.
“We’re not losing weight on this meal,” Miss Kay Robertson admitted.
Next up were Willie Robertson’s famous armadillo eggs.
“This is low-fat,” Willie Robertson joked.
“It only has sausage, bacon and cream cheese.”
These meat-wrapped jalapeño poppers are grilled for crunch and smoky flavor, and then finished off in the oven.

Jase and Missy Robertson took the reins next with a banana pudding.
“If you didn’t get enough fat from the sausage and the bacon and the butter,” Missy Robertson quipped.
“There are two sticks of butter in this and two cups of sugar to start off with.”
The banana pudding is a no-cook recipe, and Jase Robertson shared its secret.
“That’s lemon juice – you dip [the bananas] in there so they don’t turn brown,” he said.
Miss Kay Robertson attempted to make things healthier with Aunt Judy’s cranberry salad.
“It is a salad!” Miss Kay Robertson insisted of the dessert dish with marshmallows and whipped topping.
Willie Robertson quickly cut off any of her healthy claims.
“But what you really want is the cheesy bread right here,” he said of his recipe for crazy bread.
“This is more bacon on top of French bread with a little butter and olive oil with garlic and you toast it.”

Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson revealed he was thrilled to be a part of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York.
He told FOX411 that watching the annual extravaganza is something the Robertson family has done every year.
“It’s something we watched together as a family,” the Louisiana man said.
“It’s an honor to be up here, we’re real excited so we brought the whole crew.”

Willie Robertson said that the Robertson clan waving to crowds down Broadway might not to be so strange after all.
“After the year we’ve had I’m starting to believe all kinds of weird things,” Willie Robertson admitted.
“It’s been quite a year, the good Lord’s been good to us, blessed us a bunch so we hope we can continue on the path we’re on, staying positive and keeping it real and moving forward with our faith and family. That’s the recipe that’s gotten us here so we’re going to stick with that.”
So, the Robertson clan didn’t stick around New York City to feast on turkey. Instead they hightailed it right back to Monroe, Louisiana.
“We’ve already celebrated Thanksgiving early so I’m going home,” Willie Robertson explained.
“[After the parade] we’re jumping on a plane. We got to get home and get some things back done at home.”

Duck Dynasty stars are entering the children’s publications sphere with a picture book, Everything’s Better With a Beard.
Publisher Simon & Schuster will release Everything’s Better With a Beard in March 2014. The photographic picture book has a simple message: Slap some facial hair on everything -from rubber duckies to sunflowers to trucks – and it’s instantly better.

Everything’s Better With a Beard, written by Si, Willie, Phil, Jase, Jep and Alan Robertson, will be full of homespun Duck Dynasty wisdom that kids will love.
“Kay has set up a special section in their house for all the grandchildren that is filled with children’s books,” Willie Robertson said in a press release.
“We’re proud to now have books with our names on them to add to the collection, and we’re happy to promote beards any time we get a chance.”
Duck Dynasty stars Willie and Korie Robertson and principals of the sprawling Trinchero Family Estates winery toasted their new joint wine label Tuesday at a launch party in St. Helena.
The Duck Commander Wines label is “a great opportunity to join with a tremendous success story – the Robertson family,” said Roger Trinchero, the winery’s chief executive officer, at the party with about 75 staff and family members, local distributors and guests.
Roger Trinchero said while the business aspect of the new label was attractive, it was the chemistry between the two families that was compelling for him.
“They come from the same sort of background that we did – plus they are really great people,” Roger Trinchero said.

“We share the same values,” he added.
“Not to mention that the brand itself has tremendous potential.”
The Duck Commander by Robertson Family Wines feature a Red Blend, a Chardonnay and a Pink Moscato.
The wines, which sell at a mid-range price point of around $10 per bottle, are currently available at Wal-Mart, and will be at stores nationally by January.
Bob Torkelson, Trinchero’s COO, said a representative from the Robertson clan approached him about the possibility of producing their wine label.
He said the Trinchero family was “thrilled” to be associated with the project – both for business reasons and because they resonated with the Robertsons. The two families shared a private dinner Monday night at the Trinchero estate north of St. Helena.
“To be associated with the most popular reality TV show ever, plus to be with a great family group, really makes it a win-win for us,” Bob Torkelson said.
Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson was the big star at Wednesday’s opening of the Bass Pro Shops in Colorado Springs.
Four hundred people who stood in line – some for more than 24 hours – were issued wristbands to receive autographs from Willie Robertson, but he also made an appearance on stage during the store’s opening ceremonies and waved to enthusiastic fans.

Duck Dynasty’s recently released Christmas album, Duck The Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas, featuring several top country stars, is reaching No 1 in Billboard Top Country Albums chart.
Duck The Halls debuted on October 29 and sold nearly 70,000 albums in its first week.
Now, three weeks in, it is the biggest debut country holiday album in the last decade, according to Nielsen Soundscan.
Phil, Si, Willie, Jase, Korie, Missy, Sadie and the rest of the Robertson family show off their singing talents in the CD, include a few classics such as I’ll Be Home for Christmas, Silent Night as well as originals like Have a Hairy Christmas and a Happy Happy Happy New Year and Ragin’ Cajun Redneck Christmas, which Willie wrote with Dallas Davidson.
Although none of them had vocal experience except for Missy Robertson, Willie said they weren’t concerned.
“We’ve all sung in church our whole lives,” the Duck Commander CEO said, “and we do lots of karaoke.”
“There are funny parts, serious parts, a little prayer, some of our antics,” he said.
“It’s got us all over it.”
The Robertson family has invited special guests George Strait, Alison Krauss, Luke Bryan and Josh Turner to join them on the 13-track album, which was produced by Buddy Cannon.

Newly elected Louisiana Congressman Vance McAllister said the endorsement by the Duck Dynasty fame might have given him a leg up in winning Saturday’s runoff for an open congressional seat.
“When Willie and Jep and Jase did what they did for me, I’m sure it didn’t hurt at all,” Republican Vance McAllister told Fox & Friends Monday, referring to the endorsements he received from the folks on the popular TV reality show.
Vance McAllister beat fellow Republican state Senator Neil Riser in a runoff election for the seat in the state’s 5th Congressional District. Both self-described conservatives, Riser ran on the endorsement of the Tea Party of Louisiana.
Phil Robertson endorsed Vance McAllister, a businessman and political newcomer, because he had “the least political experience,” Raw Story reports.
Vance McAllister said Willie Robertson stopped by to congratulate him after the win, giving him a “big old bear hug.”
Jep Robertson endorsement helped Vance McAllister to win Louisiana Congress seat
“We had just wrapped up with all my TV interviews and everything, and I was talking to some friends and family. And, next thing I hear is, <<Willie is here.>> And, I turned around and, oh, my goodness, it’s like Grizzly Adams walking up behind you,” Vance McAllister said.
“He told me he was proud of me. And, I told him, <<Well, boy, I appreciate it>>. Phil, Jase, and Willie and Jep, and even Si, they are amazing, true Christians,” Vance McAllister added.
“And, you know, what y’all see on TV, and I’ve known them before any of this all came about, they are some wonderful people.”
Vance McAllister also said the barrage of negative campaign ads against him also contributed to his win.
“It was 100 percent negative campaign against 100 percent positive campaign. And, I stayed true to my faith and maintained my integrity,” he said.
“We kind of shocked the world.”

Political newcomer Republican Vance McAllister, who was endorsed by Duck Dynasty‘s Willie Robertson, won a Louisiana special election for Congress on Saturday.
Vance McAllister defeated Republican state Senator Neil Riser 60% to 40% to represent Louisiana’s fifth Congressional District.
In the October 15 open primary, Neil Riser got 32% of the vote while Vance McAllister got 18%.
Republican Vance McAllister, who was endorsed by Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson, won a Louisiana special election for Congress
“I’m so humbled. So humbled. This is such a great monumental win – victory,” Vance McAllister said Saturday night.
“[This race] was never about why not to vote for Neil Riser. It was about why to vote for Vance McAllister.”
The election was held after Republican Rodney Alexander (R-LA) vacated the seat when he abruptly retired from Congress to take a post in Republican Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s administration.
Willie Robertson, who some expected to run for the seat, endorsed Vance McAllister on Wednesday, calling him a “good buddy” who “can turn Washington around.”

Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson has endorsed political outsider and Republican businessman Vance McAllister, who will be battling it out December 9 in a special run-off election for a vacant seat in Louisiana’s 5th Congressional district where Robertson and his famous clan are residents.
Willie Robertson, once rumored to be considering a run for the very same seat, appears in a campaign video reminding voters to “get out…and vote for my good buddy Vance McAllister. Let’s send somebody from the 5th District who speaks for us to help turn Washington around.”
Vance McAllister appears at the end of the video and says: “I’m not a politician, but I approve this message.”
He has been promoting his outsider status from the beginning against state Senator Neil Riser, his Republican opponent.
Willie Robertson has endorsed political outsider and Republican businessman Vance McAllister, who will be battling it out December 9 in a special run-off election for a vacant seat in Louisiana’s 5th Congressional district
The strategy has worked so far, with Vance McAllister beating 12 other candidates, including state lawmakers, mayors and a former congress member, in an October 16 open primary where he garnered 18 percent of the vote.
However, Neil Riser, who won 32% of the vote in the primary, will be stiff competition for the contested seat, which Rep. Rodney Alexander vacated this summer to take a position in Gov. Bobby Jindal’s administration.
But Vance McAllister’s campaign thinks the name-recognition of the Robertsons will help them cross the finish line first.
“I think it gives an added bit of bona fides,” Vance McAllister adviser John Robinson told Roll Call, which posted the campaign video Thursday.
“I heard some people say, <<Oh, we’ve heard of Neil Riser, but we know the Robertsons are behind you>>.”
It’s hard to believe people haven’t heard of the Robertsons, even if they haven’t seen an episode of Duck Dynasty. The show, which follows the lives of the tight-knit duck call-making band of brothers and their families, is the most watched cable reality television show in history, beating out one-time rating juggernauts like American Idol.
This isn’t Willie Robertson’s first foray into political waters. While promoting his show – and squelching rumors of personal political ambitions on Fox News in August – Willie Robertson revealed his candidate pick for 2016.
“I’m curious to know about Jindal,” Willie Robertson said.
“That’s my guy.”

A Duck Dynasty event for a Christian organization in Bristol has now been canceled because of Duck Commander business deal.
Organizers of the Family Ministries benefit announced the cancellation of Willie Robertson’s appearance Monday evening.
They say a recent partnership between Duck Dynasty and Duck Commander Wines will send the wrong message to young people who were attending the event.

“Our greatest responsibility is to the young people we serve. Therefore, we feel that in light of the recent news that the stars of the show <<Duck Dynasty>> are partnering with Trinchero Family Estates to launch Duck Commander Wines, to continue with this event would send mixed messages to the young people who go through our Adolescent Drug and Alcohol program,” said Derek Bell, director of development for Family Ministries, in a press release.
Tickets will be refunded by the Viking Hall Civic Center. The event was scheduled for April 12, 2014.
Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson announced that Duck Commander Wines will hit stores this month.
According to People magazine, the Robertsons have partnered with the winemakers of the Trinchero Family Estates in Napa. They offer the Triple Threat Red Blend, Miss Priss Pink Moscato, and Wood Duck Chardonnay with bottles decked out in camo-inspired labels.

Willie Robertson said he wants to prove that wine can be delicious and affordable at a price under $10 a bottle.
Willie Robertson said of the collection: “Yuppie folks ain’t the only ones who can enjoy good wine. This is good wine for good people, and it’s made by good people.”
Viewers watching the 47th Annual Country Music Association Awards – held Wednesday night in Nashville – were surprised with Duck Dynasty stars appearance.
Willie and Jase Robertson were joined by their wives Korie and Missy to perform a redneckified version of Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines.
While the Robertson clan twerked on stage, CMA Awards hosts, Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley, switched up the words of Robin Thicke’s song.

Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas album, which was released this week, features the bearded Louisiana clan singing traditional Christmas carols and duck-themed songs in the latest addition to their stable of merchandise.
The album, in which the family showcase their work on the squawking duck calls that have made their Duck Commander company leaders in the hunting industry, will also be a test of how the unlikely TV stars can compete head-to-head against Christmas albums by country music’s perennial million-sellers Kelly Clarkson and Trace Adkins.
Willie Robertson, Duck Commander’s chief executive, is not counting on music being a full-time gig for the Duck Dynasty crew, who have also parlayed the A&E Network’s series into a merchandise lines sold at big-box retailers like Wal-Mart and Sears.
“We’re not aspiring to be country music stars,” Willie Robertson said in an interview about the album, which was produced by Nashville hitmaker Buddy Cannon.
“When we first went in the studio with Buddy we didn’t know what was going to happen, but we are very proud of the album,” he said.
Critics ascribe its success to fact that the Robertsons are seen as a regular family, and viewers can compare their quirks and eccentricities to their own family members.

Duck Dynasty reality show has also spawned diverse merchandise, from sporting goods and apparel to the unusual antibacterial bandages and camouflage reclining furniture. A&E’s online store has more than 300 Duck Dynasty products.
The Robertson family also got a little help on the album from country stars such as Luke Bryan, George Strait and Alison Krauss, who lent their voices to some tracks.
The album includes a few novelties from the long-bearded, camouflage-wearing hunting enthusiasts from West Monroe, Louisiana, along with traditionals, including I’ll Be Home for Christmas and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
“It is definitely from our perspective of a down-home middle-America Christmas,” Willie Robertson said.
“There is some funny stuff and then there is some serious stuff.”
Willie Robertson even had a hand in writing a few of the songs, including Ragin’ Cajun Redneck Christmas with top Nashville songwriter Dallas Davidson.
Led by Phil Robertson, his sons and daughters-in-law, grandchildren, wife Miss Kay and brother Si, sing and toot their duck calls on songs like Duck the Halls and Camouflage and Christmas Lights.
Although a strong starting position on the Billboard 200 album chart next week would cement the national appeal of the family’s personas, do not expect them to be quacking about the album after November 23.

Duck Dynasty stars made their musical debut Tuesday with the national release of Christmas album – Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas.
“We’re proud of it,” Willie Robertson told The News-Star on Monday.
“It has classics and some originals.
“Christmas is about faith and family so it made sense to blend them with the Robertsons.”

Willie, Phil, Missy Robertson, Uncle Si and Sadie Robertson are all featured on the album, along with musical artists George Strait, Alison Krauss, Josh Turner and Luke Bryan.
“We love to sing and love the season,” said the Duck Commander CEO.
“It was a lot of fun, and fans of the show will see similarities to the show with a prayer and my thoughts to close it out.
“And of course, Si has some classic funny songs. It’s a real family album that hopefully is successful.”

Si Robertson dressed up as a beaver for the Halloween celebration on Duck Dynasty’s season finale.
“Look, it ain’t about the costume,” Uncle Si insisted.
“It’s about the attitude.”
“You’re telling me that if you saw a beaver the size of a man, that that would not scare you?” Si Robertson said looking straight into the camera.

“Buck teeth the size of your head? One chomp, he’d bite your right arm off.”
But when his nephew Willie Robertson, who dressed as Freddy Krueger, failed to see the sinister side of Uncle Si’s creature feature, what with it lacking any blood, Si warned him to be patient.
“That’ll come later when I eat a kid,” he smiled.
When Duck Commander’s haunted house kicked off, Willie Robertson could be seen jumping from the swamp with a warning: “I’m a man-eating mutant beaver, and I love little children the best!”

The latest episode of Duck Dynasty shows John Luke Robertson totaling his father’s truck, and how Willie Robertson realizes he may be raising the two worst drivers in all of Louisiana.
John Luke Robertson did a number of Willie’s pick-up truck, so Korie and Jessica drive him to the Chevy dealer to pick up a loaner. In a rush to get to their mani-pedis, the women leave niece and nephew, Silla and River, with Willie Robertson.
Willie Robertson, 40, then remembers that all kids are trouble when he takes his niece and nephew for a ride in his loaner, a 2014 Chevy Silverado, and they cover it in ice cream.

Despite River’s constant whacking on his leg with a toy sword, Willie Robertson explains: “I’m gonna win points with Korie.”
The kids want ice cream and Willie Robertson wants to be “the best uncle in the world.” As he explained: “Saying no is a lot more difficult than saying yes, especially when they’re not your kids.”
Before Willie Robertson drives the new loaner truck out of the ice cream shop’s parking lot, Silla has had the first spill in the back seat. That eventually degenerates into the kids actually pouring melted ice cream onto the seats.
Lucky for Willie Robertson, John Luke shows up as he’s beginning to clean the truck cab.
This week’s Robertson family moral came from Willie: “Things are replaceable. Family isn’t. Especially Si.”
According to new reports, Duck Dynasty fans are heading to West Monroe, Louisiana, as the Robertson family’s home place has become the vacation spot of the year.
Duck Dynasty, which follows Willie Robertson, his redneck family and their multimillion-dollar duck call business Duck Commander, is one of television’s most-watched reality series. More than 11.8 million viewers tuned in for the season four premiere in August, and fans are now taking their love for the show and hitting the road to visit the Robertsons’ town of West Monroe.
“We laugh and smile and shake our heads because the show has really put us on the map,” said Courtney Hornsby, president of the West Monroe-West Ouachita Chamber of Commerce. “We’re just trying to embrace it and see how we can use it to help grow the community.”
Duck Dynasty fans are taking their love for the show and hitting the road to visit the Robertsons’ town of West Monroe
Although Courtney Hornsby did not have official tourism numbers, she says the town of 13,000 is inundated on weekends. And local businesses are aiming to take advantage of the Duck Dynasty crowds.
The local Hampton Inn has a Duck Commander package which gives participants a gift bag with their very own Phil Robertson mug when booking a room. The Downtown Monroe Alliance is planning a holiday event around the show, to be called A Very Merry Commander Christmas, and the Monroe-West Monroe Convention and Visitors Bureau created the Duck Commander Hometown Tour to help tourists find locations from Duck Dynasty.
“It’s really exciting to see our area revitalized with increased tourism from the show,” said Rebekah Landry, art and social media director for Landry Vineyards. Her family’s vineyard was shown on an episode of Duck Dynasty in 2012. Rebekah Landry estimates that half of the vineyard’s visitors come by because of the show.
“People are always asking <<Where’s Willie?>>, <<Where can I meet him?>>, <<Where does he live?>>” said Rebekah Landry.
“It can be an irritant but people are coming in the door and buying our wines, so you can’t complain.”
Lori and Dalton Young and their four children spent their spring break visiting West Monroe from McKinney, Texas. Their first stop was the Duck Commander warehouse where they bumped into Si Robertson.
“Our youngest daughter has Down syndrome, and it was really sweet to see Si talking to her,” said Lori Young.
“She kept calling him daddy so he was laughing and joking with her.”
GOP operatives in Louisiana were trying to court Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson for retiring Rep. Rodney Alexander’s, R-La., Congressional seat, but this time around, that’s not happening.
“I ran for about a week, but I wasn’t aware that I was running,” Willie Robertson said in Washington last week.
“I never rule anything out,” he added.
“I like staying involved in politics, in trying to help shape things.”
Willie Robertson and his wife Korie were in Washington DC for the annual Angels in Adoption gala
Willie Robertson also advised current Members of Congress on how to solve the government shutdown: “I’m trying to get people to work in my duck call room, that’s hard enough.”
The Duck Dynasty star revealed he didn’t suffer from the shutdown on this Washington trip.
“No, it didn’t affect me getting in here at all, we’ll be back to work tomorrow,” Willie Robertson said.
“See, we still have to work down in Louisiana, so we’ve got to go to work and make some duck calls, try them out and keep making the TV show.”
Willie Robertson and his wife Korie were in Washington D.C. for the annual Angels in Adoption gala and were honored for the positive portrayal of adoption on their reality show.
“I asked Korie to marry me when she was 17, so really, I feel like I adopted her,” Willie Robertson joked.
Duck Dynasty’s Willie and Korie Robertson revealed they didn’t have the money to pay the adoption fee their adopted son Will.
“We said, <<We’re good for it – we’ll come back>>,” Willie Robertson said Wednesday night in Washington, D.C., at the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute’s Angels in Adoption Gala, where he and his wife were honored.
“We’ve paid it, by the way.”
Willie and Korie Robertson revealed they didn’t have the money to pay the adoption fee their adopted son Will
Willie and Korie Robertson arrived in Washington D.C. about two hours before the event, to take a short break from filming Duck Dynasty show and talk about the importance of adoption.
“There shouldn’t be kids without homes. It just shouldn’t happen,” Korie Robertson told PEOPLE magazine.
When she accepted her award, Korie Robertson started crying as she reminisced about her parents loving, open home, and adopting their son when he was 5 weeks old.
“From the moment we found out about him, he was ours,” Korie Robertson told the audience.
“I swear, I had labor pains the night before I went and picked him up at the foster home he was living at. He’s our child, just like our biological children.”
And while Duck Dynasty show brought them fame and money – family is all that matters, they say.
“I’ve done a lot of cool things in the past couple of years, I’ve been to Super Bowls, I’ve met Presidents – but the best decision we ever made – that made the biggest impact on our life was the adoption of our son Will,” Willie Robertson said.
According to a new report, Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson – the family member whose entrepreneurial spirit made the reality show a success – is increasingly hungry for the spotlight, In Touch magazine claims, and his family believes he’s gone too far.
“When the family is resistant to Willie’s ideas, he says they don’t see the big picture,” one source explains.
“The truth is, they just don’t care as much.”
Willie Robertson’s desire for fame causes Duck Dynasty family to feud
Willie Robertson has spear-headed deals for books, a Christmas album, and more, and still “wants them to build a bigger empire,” says the source, but the rest of the family is increasingly wary of the spotlight.
Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson admitted he wanted the show to “go on without me,” and according to In Touch magazine, the younger generation, Willie’s brothers Jase and Jep want out too.
Jep Robertson and his wife Jessica “fear the show will damage their marriage,” the source claims.
But for now, it seems, the Robertsons are willing to go along with Willie Robertson’s grand schemes.
“When the family gets overwhelmed by the attention, Willie talks them off the ledge,” a source explains.
“He’s the force behind all of this.”
Willie and Korie Robertson took a break from filming Duck Dynasty to receive the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute’s annual Angels in Adoption award at the Reagan Building.

Clad in jeans and his trademark American flag bandana, Willie Robertson – CEO of the family-owned business – displayed the charm that made the Robertsons TV stars.
“I really didn’t know what exactly this was, I’ll admit,” he told the crowd.
Korie Robertson gave him his marching orders about the trip to D.C.: “You don’t have to wear a suit, food will be free, and we’re talking about adoption.”
Willie Robertson also gave advices on the shutdown: “I understand what it’s like – you should try to get Uncle Si to make duck calls in the duck call room. It’s probably harder running the government of the United States.”
The latest episode of Duck Dynasty showed Phil and Miss Kay Robertson being worried about their mortality after a visit to the doctor.
Phil and Miss Kay Robertson went to visit their son Willie to share their concerns.
“Well, simply put,” Phil Robertson told Willie.
“We’re dying,” finished Miss Kay.
“You’re both dying?” asked a confused Willie.
After a visit to the doctor, Phil and Miss Kay Robertson were worried about their mortality
“Miss Kay and I are healthy as we can be, as far as I know,” explained Phil.
“If you made it 65 years, you’re like, way ahead of the game, but we will go.”
“So, no one’s dying, right?” clarified Willie Robertson.
“Well, not at the moment,” admitted Miss Kay.
“We just want to make sure that what we leave behind is in order,” said Phil Robertson.
“Is this about your will?” asked Willie.
“Who gets what, you know, so you don’t fight,” answered the Duck Dynasty patriarch.
“So, I’m saying let’s go down there, look at the property lines, get it all divided up.”
“Today?” the Duck Commander CEO asked.
“Today,” said his father Phil, firmly.
Phil and Willie leave the office to tour the massive Robertson compound, where Willie learns that instead of getting the house (like Alan), or the land next to the river (like Jase) or the land next to the lake (like Jep), he ends up with the property that soon will have a pipeline running through it.
Willie Robertson was being something of a jerk on the latest episode of Duck Dynasty.
Willie Robertson, 40, ordered a case of wildebeest biltong, a thick, exotic cured meat from South Africa, and refused to share it with anyone.
“Anybody who knows about real beef jerky, knows about biltong,” Willie Robertson explained.
“Biltong is delicious.”
The smell of Willie Robertson’s biltong was so pungent, it brought Jase and Uncle Si straight into his office.
“I smell me some meat,” said Jase Robertson.
“I’m part bloodhound. The nose don’t lie.”
“I smell meat,” chimed in Uncle Si Robertson.

Willie Robertson, however, was not giving up the jerky.
“This is mine, I put Jack Link’s in the break room for you guys,” the Duck Commander CEO explained.
“I’m not here to feed you guys, you’re here to work.”
“Are you serious, you’re not going to share that?” asked a slightly bewildered Jase Robertson.
“Mmmm-hmmm,” replied Willie, licking the biltong.
“That’s just wrong,” said Jase, leaving Willie’s office in disgust.
“That’s it, I’m out of here. You’re a terrible brother.”
Having been denied a share of Willie’s biltong, Jase and Uncle Si were left with an insatiable hankering for dried meat.
“We have, as rednecks, the right to eat beef jerky,” explained a ticked off Jase.
“Beef jerky is a redneck’s fuel. You take away his beef jerky, he’s sitting in the corner, sucking his thumb. Everyone knows that.”
To remedy the wrong, the Duck Commander crew decided take the afternoon off and make their own jerky, using Justin Martin’s venison and John Godwin’s dehydrator.
“You don’t want to share your jerky, fine,” grumbled Jase Robertson.
“I’ll make my own biltong, and I’ll call it <<Jase-tong>>.”
