The Moonlite Bar-B
-Q, in fact the entire city of Owensboro is famous for
barbecued mutton. Not sure why. Probably
because of the area's tasty sheep population.
But the Moonlite
barbecues most everything - pork butt, brisket, chicken
and ribs. In vast quantities too. Behind the
scenes is as large and as impressive a barbecue
operation as I've seen. Even FDA inspected.
The only way to
start a barbecue dinner in Kentucky is with a bowl of
burgoo - Kentucky's version of "stew" made from mutton
The way to go at
the Moonlite is the buffet line. All the meats.
All manner of sides. A cauldron of burgoo to
start, and cobblers, banana pudding, pies and cake for
Only one rule.
Take all you want, but eat what you take.
