Dodging the Roadkill: Kentucky State BBQ Festival

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyDanville, KY – What started as a weekend motorcycle trip through the beautiful Kentucky countryside, turned into a discovery of one of the coolest festivals I have ever been to.  

The Kentucky State BBQ Festival, in Danville Kentucky.   

The Danville event looked like an interesting place to go and who doesn’t love good BBQ?  And this festival featured the rock stars of the BBQ world, so, you know, somebody’s got to do it!

As a “foodie” myself, just the opportunity to meet Moe Cason and the legendary Mike Mills was enough for me, but seeing our Nashville friends, Peg Leg Porker was a real treat.  Learn more about this year’s Pitmasters here.
