Friday and Saturday is Owensboro's famous International Barbecue Festival.

And, this year is even better. The  Riverfront is finished. Smothers Park and the new Owensboro Convention Center and Hampton Inn will be showcased to the max.

Great barbecue aromas and thick, blinding smoke will waft through downtown. And, we will be there. WBKR will be broadcasting from the event on both days. As I look back, my favorite year was 2009. I was joined on the air by Kizzy and on the streets by lovely Mrs. Moon.

Here Debra and I enjoy a fabulous pork sandwich.

And, Kizzy and I hooked up with the biggest soldier I ever saw.

But, for me, the highlight was when all of us were accosted by a group of women from a foreign land. They couldn't speak English but we knew they wanted our picture. They probably thought Kizzy was someone famous. Well, I mean she is, but they didn't know that.

Here I am... surrounded by ASIAN women!!

We will have some photos of Kizzy and I in action coming up soon.

Meanwhile, here is a map of this year's International BBQ Festival 2014.
