Mark’s Feed Store-BBQ
At the NCPH conference in Kansas City where we had BBQ every night-my friend and colleague Cathy Stanton and I have developed a NCPH conference pilgrimage for BBQ. Since we were both jonesing for some BBQ, we asked where can one get a good BBQ dinner. Several locals suggested Mark’s Feed Store-so off myself and Cathy and another colleague went on our what seems to have become a NCPH conference pilgrimage for good BBQ. We both concurred that while Mark’s Feed store was quite good BBQ-it was no Arthur Bryant’s of Kansas City. However, their buttermilk crunch ice cream sundae with caramel and nuts was a pretty damn good ending to a very eventful day.
Being a scotch drinker, I thought I would venture into the world of bourbon while down here and try some brands I normally would not get in the ol’ north city of Philly and perhaps blog about them as well as the conference. So tonight I tried Elijah Craig Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky. Quite nice, smooth and full-bodied and was enjoyed immensely especially after that wonderful buttermilk crunch sundae, but I have to say I still like the peaty, dirt flavor of scotch. But want to try as many different bourbon’s as possible while here in Kentucky-so suggestions are welcome.
