Just watched a re-run of a Man verses Food episode featuring a wealthy man, Jennings Osborne, who does Humongous BBQ's for Firefighters, Police men and others from all over the state of AR. What a Spread!
In tonight’s episode Adam Richman goes out to the Osborne family’s farm for one of those giant barbecue platters. One Osborne platter is usually enough to feed a family of four for a week. The platter consists of a whole chicken (and not a small one), a beef rib that appears to be more of an elephant rib, a slab of brisket, sausages, a jumbo pulled pork sandwich and one of those turkey legs like you find at the State Fair. Probably 6#'s of meat!
He has a BBQ BARN with a complete BBQ setup including 12 Commercial Size Smokers and each one can cook over a 1000 #'s each! If you get a chance to watch it, It's Amazing!
He also had a Christmas display with MILLIONS of lights that airplanes could see from 80 miles away! The neighbors complained & sued him about the visitor traffic so he donated the lights to Disneyworld! He's lived my Fantasy. Anyone ever heard of this guy? He's my hero!
