    It’s time for Barbecue!

    By: Christy V. Temple

    Okay, it’s that time of year again. Spring has definitely sprung and now that we are officially into the month of May it is now time to get ready to think about backyard barbecues with all the fixins, especially with Memorial Day right around the corner, which to me is always like the official start to Summer.

    In any event, there is nothing quite like the simmering, tangy, sweet, taste of good old-fashioned barbecue. Now, everyone has a different take on barbecue of course. Here in Owensboro, Kentucky, we tend to lean towards mutton. However, we also barbecue pork and other things as well. It’s just that the Big “O” is known for its sheep.

    Like anything though, how you fix your barbecue is totally up to you. Of course, when I think of barbecuing I’m not just thinking about big slabs of meat either. I think of T-bone steak, hotdogs, hamburgers, vegetables on kebab skewers, and even salmon on a wooden plank. I just love the smell and the aroma of how things look and taste after they have been on a grill or barbecue pit.

    I know personally I wait every year around Memorial Day to bring out the Omaha Steaks that my brother-in-law from Florida sends us around Christmas time to eat and enjoy. Let me tell you that Omaha steaks are really good and usually there are other goodies they send as well, like twice-baked potatoes and sometimes even fish.

    Overall, we really enjoy eating all of the wonderful food in celebration of Memorial Day. We also take that time to remember those that have gone before us and the sacrifices they have made on our behalf.

    So, now that I have brought up barbecue and everyone is really hungry, I won’t leave you hanging. If you happen to be someone that is not used to eating barbecue, strange as that sounds around here and you’re not really sure what to do, then I have some ideas in mind for you.

    At the Daviess County Public Library, we have a plethora of books about barbecue that you can really sink your teeth into. Here is just a small sampling of what we have to offer for all your barbecuing needs:

     

     

    Hope you enjoy trying this small sampling of barbecue books. There are plenty more on the shelves so stop on by and take a look.
