A Memorial Day BBQ Outside the Box


Peaches, several barbecue related recipes below

It’s about 1830 and a community in Bear Grass Creek near Louisville, Kentucky is having a community barbecue. Enslaved Africans and their masters spent a week clearing a field for the event and people donated wagon loads of meats and fowl prepared “for the common benefit” at the barbecue. In addition folks donated jugs full with “every beverage used in the country” and all sorts of “peaches, plums, and pears, would have sufficed to stock a market.” I came across a website that provides “three ways to enjoy ripe local peaches on the BBQ.” Now that’s really thinking outside the box.
