OK, Paul, I got your ticket. All you have to do is show, eat, watch the race and buy me a beer!

I wish my fellow Glee Clubbers had been at the race yesterday. We finally decided not to go with Dennis Hays. I found a local caterer with an amazing mobile smoker. It's on a trailer about 25 feet long. Instead of a vertical rotisserie, the meat runs on a horizontal track, much like a pizza oven, except that the track returns side-by-side, instead of over-and-under. At the far end, the grease is dumped, then on the return, the meat is dragged through a marinade bath. A circuit is made every five minutes. We had ribs, beef tips and half-chickens. It was, in my opinion, every bit as good as Hays, but Hays had by far the better side items. All in all, it was a great experience. By the way, does anybody know who won the race? I wasn't paying any attention.
Are we still meeting in Henderson, Ky., on June 19th?

Pete
As far as I know Jan and I will be in Henderson on the 18th and 19th for the music. I have to find out which evening is the "Zydeco" nite before we are certain. Last time I talked to Sundancer he was planning to meet us there. Bushie's vacation plans are in flex at this time....so we'll see if the Texan can do it too.

Michael Waltriip won the race. BBQ sounded real good. I am planning on being in KY on the date that Al selects. Anybody heard from JimInKy?

I will not be at the Henderson event; just can't work out the trip to include that. However, I'm committed (or probably should be ) to attending the Ham Festival in Cadiz in October.

I emailed Jim last week. No reply. Sorry. He's hibernating.

Paul,
Two choices...
One If we are going to meet at the Moonlite BBQ prior to going over to the festival at Henderson- come up 65 from Nashville, take the parkway exit in Bowling Green and follow the Natcher Parkway right into Owensboro.
OR TWO-
Take I-24 out of Nashville to the Ft Campbell exit (right at the KY-TN line) then follow the Parkway north from there thru Madisonville to Henderson. We'll pick a meeting place a bit closer to the date.

The way they set up the activities, the food competition is the first weekend, Then the music starts later in the week and runs thru the second weekend. During the Music sessions there are church dinners and 'Fair Food' vendors all over the place. We usually go for the friday and Saturday of the second weekend to catch the friday evening and noon-til we are worn out- Saturday concerts.
More to follow

Rogey88,
That means one thing: you've never been to Lexington, North Carolina. - I can't say I prefer the Lexington style of 'cue or fixin's, but the red slaw is as much a local anomaly as is Western Kentucky's black dip. Lexington area folks refer to their runny, tomato-based sauce as "dip" as well. There are twenty-one barbecue places in the environs of Lexington, which boasts about 17,000 people.
My all-time favorite is still the mustard-based sauce that is found in central South Carolina and in Columbus, Georgia. My two all-time favorites are both in the combined town of Batesburg/Leesville, South Carolina - on U. S. 1 between Augusta, Georgia and Columbia, South Carolina - Shealy's (on U. S. 1) and Jackie Hite's (on Railroad Street, a block off U. S. 1)... the two places aren't but shoutin' distance apart.
Then there's Country's in Columbus, Georgia, in the old Greyhound Bus Depot on Broadway downtown.
Then there's all those Tennessee places up the thread a ways, where your food comes with that wonderful flat, cooked-on-the-grill cornbread that is plumb to die for... I'm gettin' fatter just thinkin' about it all....
Doing, Not Dieting, Ort. Carlton in Ever-Expanding Athens, Georgia.
P. S. I can't wait until I make it to Owensboro to give it my thumbs-up, which I know I will.

'88- One Hoosier to Another, Isn't Owensboro Outstanding!! I don't know if I would call it Number One...but it is the very top group. I love the variety of meats they do so well. North Carolina has a strong claim on Pork...But they wouldn't recognize the sound "Moooo" if it dropped a quart of Texas BBQ Sauce in their lap. The Texans do some great stuff with Beef and a bit less with Pork and Goat. But The Western Kentucky boys do the Pork, Beef, Mutton, and all the little Burgoo critters too. Yep Owensboro/Henderson is right up there with Kansas City in my book.

Pogo,
I noticed today that the Slick Pig, which you've mentioned several times in connection with their wings, is opening a new location, off exit 81, in Murfreesboro. This is good news for me, since I can park my truck on the side of the highway, and just pop in for a quick lunch. Also, Sylvan Park has a new location on Franklin Road, north of Thompson Lane.

Thanks PP, that's excellent news on the Slick Pig! As to Sylvan, they have opened and closed several branches over the years, none of which ever really captured the quality of the original. Hope this one fares better!!

Thanks to the southernfoodways heads up from Sundancer,I too made a trip (pilgrimage?) to Hays' Smokehouse in Lexington,TN.Great ribs and a sandwich to go.Mr. Hays pegged me as a Roadfooder and allowed as many as 4-5 customers a week now come to his place based on this site.Of course this stop will now be a regular one if I'm within 100 miles of Lexington.Thanks Roadfooders.

Wait a second.

He allows 4-5 people to come to his place?

Isn't this a retail food establishment, open to the public?

TJ -- I think he was referring to how many people a week are mentioning having come because of the write-up on Roadfood...

Mr. Hay's is on of the kindest gentleman I have ever met. I am absolutely certain he mean't nothing to be offending to anyone. This is one of the neatest places I have ever done BBQ at. His wife, staff and all are of the best ever and in addition, the BBQ is out of sight.

I love their style. I love their BBQ and I love their place. The restrooms are as clean as their restaurant.

Allow = figure, guess, think

In my neck of the woods, we would prabably say "allowed as how 4 or 5 ... ."

Gotta find a way to get down there.

And to Red's in Maine

And to Rutts Hutt

And to Pepe's in New Haven

And to Philly (many places to go in Philly)

and to....ah, why bother, I'm just working myself up. Time to go post on the Register of Frustration and Deprivation again :-)

The main room of the Rendezvous in Memphis has a huge bar in the middle. The booths that lined where we sat were separated from the bar by a 4-foot-high wall and a wide aisle marked “employees only.”
Albert stood on the other side of the wall, looked us over, and said “drinks.” It wasn’t a question, it was more like a command. My companion said “unsweet tea” and I wanted to crawl under the table.
Albert handled it like the pro he was. His answer? “No.”
So we meekly ordered the sweet tea, and I thought I saw his lips curl into a slight smirk as he walked away.
We tried the pulled pork and ribs and loin combination.
