The 8th Annual Big Apple Barbecue Block Party took place in Madison Square Park on June 12 and 13, 2010. The Big Apple Barbecue Block Party brings together the country’s top pitmasters who cook up their award-winning food for over a hundred thousand barbecue enthusiasts.

Led by pitmaster Ken Bosley, Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn, from Owensboro, Kentucky, served up BBQ Mutton & Burgoo. Moonlite has been a Kentucky tradition since 1963 when Catherine and Pappy Bosley bought the 14-year old barbecue joint, the Moonlite.

Barbecued Mutton, pit-roasted sheep, has been popular in Owensboro since the Welsh settled Daviess County with their sheep herds. Owensboro’s burgoo is a hearty soup made from mutton, chicken, and a variety of vegetables. One tradition says it came from Wales and found its way to the frontier through Virginia, evolving very similar to Brunswick Stew. In the early 1800’s, burgoo developed as a squirrel stew and was served at political rallies and church picnics. Around Kentucky, burgoo varies with different meats, but always the same consistency–thick and soupy.
