Governor’s Cup

Cooking teams start early preparing to cook up to 600 pounds of mutton and pork, 400 chickens and 60 gallons of burgoo each for Festival attendees.  They are competing for the top prize at the International Bar-B-Q Festival – the Governor’s Cup – that will be awarded on Saturday evening.  Please don’t be offended if no one will share their secret recipes. Many have been passed down from generation to generation.
