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 and chicken.
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 dessert.
Only one rule. Take all you want, but eat what you take.
