Barbecue and Bourbon: A Match Made in Meat-Lover's Heaven at Killen's Barbecue

And I thought Killen's Barbecue couldn't get any better.

Last night, Ronnie Killen invited the community to come out for a special dinner service (remember, Killen's closes when they run out of barbecue, always before dinner time) that paired the now-famous meat with Jim Beam bourbon. But saying simply "meat and bourbon" doesn't really do the meal justice.

There was a lot of meat--trays piled high with pork ribs, beef ribs, pork belly and brisket. And there was a lot of bourbon--six different varieties to taste along with five cocktails, each made with one of the unique Jim Beam bourbons. I wish I could tell you I was a trooper and I ate all the meat and drank all the bourbon, but I fear I would have been on the floor with the room spinning around me if I'd finished every last sample. There was no skimping on servings at this dinner.

Because I think the story of the smoky, succulent meat and six varieties of bourbon is better told through photos, do yourself a favor and click on over to the next page. And grab a napkin, because you're about to start drooling.
