Old Hickory Bar-B-Que Featured in Southern Foodie’s Guide to the Pig
Look what I found at Ollie's!
It's a really fun cookbook that pays tribute to the South and to the deliciousness of the pig. I bought the Southern Foodie's Guide to the Pig to build my Christmas Eve dinner around and was surprised when I opened it up and found some pages dedicated to a popular Owensboro restaurant.
Yep! Old Hickory Bar-B-Que is highlighted in the book. The Southern Foodie's Guide to the Pig: A Culinary Tour of the South's Best Restaurants and Recipes That Made Them Famous was published a few years ago and features 320 pages of mouth-watering recipes. I tried about eight of them for my Christmas Eve dinner and they were a huge hit!
But what's REALLY cool about the book is the tribute to a local BBQ joint. There's a page dedicated entirely to explaining the history of Old Hickory Bar-B-Que and the book even showcases the restaurant's amazing burgoo recipe and the inspiration behind it!
Seriously! This cookbook is freaking awesome. As I mentioned, all of my Christmas Eve recipes came from its pages. I made a ridiculously good Boston butt (injected with apple juice and white grape juice), some Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Tenders coated in brown sugar and chili powder, a crazy corn dip, a Mac and Cheese recipe that called for Havarti, Gouda, Parmesan and beer, Maple Bacon Cheddar Biscuits and a Baked Potato and Cheese soup that contained TWO POUNDS of bacon! Christmas dinner was epic!
I think I bought the last copy of the book at Ollie's, but the cookbook is available online at Amazon. I highly recommend getting a copy. You can purchase new copies for as little as $3.77 and used copies for as little as $1.32. If you'd like to read more about it or order your very own, CLICK HERE!
