Fancy Farm picnic- 19,000 lbs. of BBQ!
There is a story in today's New York Times about the Fancy Farm picnic in Fancy Farm, KY this past Saturday. Squaring off were Gov. Ernie Fletcher & his rival Steve Beshear. Accusations of criminal conspiracy, ruinous policy and general wrongheadedness flew free & fast.
Well, mudslinging & graft are no strangers to New York, where the Dutch started it all by skimming a few wampum off the top of every beaver pelt transaction.
But what I want to hear about is the 19,000 pounds (!!) of barbecued pork & mutton that was served to the crowds.
Was anybody there? Or know who cooks that feast for the politically minded attendees? I want details, folks- how do you make that much 'cue?
