International Bar-B-Q Festival

This is a two-day mouth-watering event in Owensboro, Kentucky, which calls itself the Bar-B-Q Capital of the World. In the course of the weekend, 10 tons of mutton, 5,000 chickens, and 1,500 gallons of burgoo are cooked and served. The barbecue-pit fires are lit on the banks of the Ohio River, and the chicken and meat—always mutton, not beef—is barbecued when the coals are red. Other events include arts and crafts exhibits, bluegrass and country music, street dancing, and contests of pie eating, keg throwing and horseshoe throwing. More...

“Barbecue is uniquely Owensboro and the festival reflects our culture of special food and music,” said Sharon NeSmith, executive board co-chair. “The festival is a fun way to celebrate that heritage.”








What makes this festival unusual are two competition categories. Local grill masters and traveling teams from throughout the nation cook in the Backyard Cook-Off. On Saturday afternoon festival goers can sample a variety of meats prepared by 50 cooks entered in the contest.

The main event is the Governor’s Cup. Five standout teams with up to 40 cooks each vie for the title. The pits begin glowing before daylight when meats are put on the fire. The barbecue is available for purchase in the afternoon with the winners announced at the end of sales. Chicken is a given and so are two signature foods unique to Owensboro.

Those are slow cooked mutton and a western Kentucky original called burgoo. It’s a hearty stew combination of mutton, chicken and vegetables. Mutton is considered a delicacy and every cook has a secret ingredient.

Keg throwing... I assume that somebody emptied them earlier to make it possible without unnecessary waste of precious drink containing more than 90% water. Water is precious, though.
