There will be pulled pork, ShoNuffAugust 20th, 2011 at Sat, 20th, 2011 at 8:03 am by Brian Kelly
Fair-goers eager for a barbecue pork sandwich can be assured ShoNuff will have ample meat for its hungry clientele. The last few fairs, the popular stand has run out of its tasty offerings early.
Barb Bennett, part owner of ShoNuff with her husband, Fred, said they prepared better this year and bought far more pork than the usual 400 pounds.
How much more remained a mystery.
“I really don’t know,” she said.
Along with two other workers, including her sister Cassandra Henderson and Lindsey Buckle, the crew of the ShoNuff tent kept busy through the afternoon preparing for a dinner rush.
It was a full day. The crew arrived Wednesday night about 7 p.m. and started cooking beef briskets and pork shoulders. Then they were up 12 hours later and began grilling and smoking the ribs and chicken at 7 a.m.
Bennett said they began with 100 pounds of potatoes and 200 pounds of sweet potatoes, and will get more as needed during the weekend.
