West Virginia Road Kill Cook-Off

Submitted by on September 23, 2009 – 4:14 pmNo Comment

wv_roadkillAttention Road Trips Foodies! Here’s an event that combines both of your favorite pastimes: driving and eating: the West Virginia Road Kill Cook-off. If you’ve ever wanted to taste squirrel gravy over biscuits, teriyaki marinated bear or deer sausage, this is the place! It’s September 26, 2009, in Marlinton, West Virginia. Cooking starts at 9 .m., followed by judging starting at 2 p.m. You can taste the grub whenever your stomach’s ready! Just to whet your appetite, last year’s winners was a team called the Roadside Remnants; their winning recipe, Pothole Possum Stew, inexplicably prepared with venison and served in a taco shell, and for some odd reason accompanied by a side dish of “fried moose balls,” made of sausage, cream cheese and sauerkraut. PS – all participants have to sign a form stating this: “I hereby certify that this “RoadKill Meat” has been properly handled and treated, and is healthy for consumption by the judges and public.” Besides, as the first of the many Rules and Regulations states, “All entries must have, as their main ingredient, any animal commonly found dead on the side of the road – groundhog, o‘possum, deer, rabbit, squirrel, snake, etc. Pigs, cows, chickens, horses, and goats are also in that category. However, it need not actually come off the side of the road (and most of the judges would prefer that it didn’t).” And, there’s this comforting information in #10: Judges will deduct points for every chipped tooth resulting from gravel not removed from the RoadKill.” Don’t you feel better now? Ready to chow down? Yum!
