Didn't you get the memo? Otha Turner will be head of food and beverages. there will be Goat B.B.Q, fried catfish & "slap yo mama"
And this is just the starters! later he'll serve us a lot of SWINE B.B.Q - lots of it.
I was fairly sure when I posted those links about Otha earlier in the thread that it would "trip out" whoever took the time to take
I wish Otha was still alive, he was a unique individual. Ya know it's kinda funny(sort of in a tragic way) how Mississipians are often cast in the
role of being uber racists and intellectually/socially deficient.
It is interesting to note that Otha started having his goat B.B.Q.'s back in the 50's and even back then there was a multi-ethnic mix at his
Mind yall, I'm not attempting to suggest that darkness and awful actions did not/don't exist here. But personally, I have(for the most part) been
privy to more of a feeling of kinship with the majority of folks of this state and the lessons i learned growing up here and in Jamaica have served me
Anyhow... I shall now digress and *in the spirit of this thread* I now offer my culinary expertise to this festive endeavour. I know that most
guys(especially Southerners) will tell anyone who will listen that they possess superb skills in regards to outdoor cooking.
I can actually one up that and unashamedly state that I am a "Bona Fide" Pit Master! Now before yall start slingin' a shat-storm of righteous
indignation my way allow me to state that I have actually competed in and placed *FIRST* in the grandaddy of em all/largest invitation only B.B.Q.
contest on earth....***MEMPHIS IN MAY***
Besides that I also possess what is considered to be the "Lamborghini" of smokers the incomparable
Southern Pride SPK500
it is a totally mobile propane heated rotisserie
convection smoker with the ability to cook 500lbs. per session!!!It can only be described as a true marvel of human ingenuity(even though the PTB @
Memphis in May banned it's use in ANY of their sanctioned contests)
One more thing yall... I'll load that sucka with as much pork,beef,chicken, etc as we can come up with but i'm kinda wary of goat
As a final sidenote... to all my fellow A.T.S.'rs that are vegetarians, rest assured I have not forgotten about yall, I have been cooking
professionally as a chef for 14 yrs.specializing primarily in Cajun/Creole cuisine & I have tons of kick as* "green" dishes. BTW my vegetarian red
beans n' basmati rice is soooo good it will make yo tounge slap yo brain!!!

a feast of native food and drink before a gathering of kin and friends."
