What's Cooking in Adair Co, KY: BBQ better than any in Chicago
Well, what was cooking for special orders Labor Day weekend--
and will be cooking again TODAY, Saturday, 6, 2008.
Ol' Joe Barbee's day was made yesterday, August 30, 2008, with the arrival of Iva Hovious, left, and her mother, Joyce Hovious. Though the store was officially closed for Labor Day, Ol' Joe had the smokers going for the wise barbecue fanciers who had ordered take out and catering. Joyce Hovious is originally from White Oak, above Green River on KY 551 and now from Burbank, IL and her daughter is from Worth, IL, close to each other communities near Chicago. "We've got barbecue in Chicago, but nothing that comes close to this," Joyce Hovious said. They were here to stock up for Labor Day picnics, but got enough to warm up for future meals in Chicago and for a tailgate party at the Purdue University football game before just before Halloween. Joyce Hovious says she left Adair County when she was one day old. She was the favorite niece of the late Ivy French, she says. Her parents were the late Dorothy Barnett Redford and Ernie Redford. "He was a Red-ford," she says, "But he always drove a blue Chevrolet." Oh yes, Joyce Hovious attests to a rule of the Epicurean Kentucky, "Barbecued boston butt is best warmed over." That gives hope to the thousands of Ol' Joe fans who fret that, as an orthodox barbecuer, he will not sway from his iron clad rule of being open only on first and third Fridays and Saturdays. "We're not in it for the money," he says. "Our barbecue is a labor of love." The store will be open next on Friday, September 5, and Saturday, September 6, 2008. Many other critics have already rated Ol' Joes better than anything in Owensboro, Memphis, Kansas City, or Lockhart, TX.
