Paducah BBQ on the River - pics as we go..
« on: September 25, 2010, 06:52:17 AM »
Moon rising over the Ohio..  [Thursday night]




After decimating Larry's liquor supply, Hal and I went on a little road trip yesterday.


Quick stop at Starne's BBQ Joint.   Looks like it hasn't changed in 50 years.









(Hal swears those are the same people that were sitting there when he was a kid)


Now for the important stuff..











Took a little walk around to check out the smokers.













Those guys were the only ones to walk up to talk to us, so we sat down and had lunch there - fantastic brisket sammie and Hal had a 'rib sandwich'..   (3 bones and 2 pieces of white bread)

Continuing on..






Hal taps me on the shoulder and says "you need to see this.."



Here, hold my beer while I take this picture..




That pig was headed to this plywood box smoker. (seriously)




Band stage down by the flood wall.




Another piggie.




Hey Lenny, smile!






Nice Lang stickburner, and another one of Lenny's rigs.




Mass rib prep.




MrsHal, her mom and MrsSTC pose, while Paducah burns in the background..





Umm, yeah.

We had a nice (non BBQ) dinner, with an awesome sunset view, and perch over the crowds.










Any guesses what kind of smoke that is?




Back to Larry's condo.    Yeah, you are seeing this correctly.

After the band shut down, the music came up over at Lenny's tent.  He brought full DJ equipment with them.

He won the rib category last year.




We saunter down to chat, and are flabbergasted by what we saw on the menu board..

Great pics STC - looks like a grand time.  Hal is right - those are the same people sitting there when he was a kid; time stands still in Paducah.

Love seeing all the different rigs.  From the looks of things your buddy Lenny would appear to be a very serious competitor - looks like dual Lang 60 and the one in the background looks like an older style Lang 84 (or bigger).
I like animals, they taste good!

I got a few more today around town.   The crowds were insane, so we've been skirting the edges of the festival.

Fun times, great food!
