Come out for Award-Winning BBQ at the 2014 Picnic

2013 Picnic Day (206)There are so many fun events to help you enjoy the 44th Mount Saint Joseph Picnic, it might be easy to forget that award-winning barbecue cooks are filling the air — and our stomachs — with incredible chickens, pork, mutton and burgoo. The men from Precious Blood Catholic Church were the winners of the International Barbecue Festival Cookoff this year, and they’ll be cooking more than 700 chickens on Sept. 14th. There’s never a drop of burgoo left even though the St. Martin cooking team makes 11 huge kettles, assisted by the folks from St. Pius. Savory mutton and pork is provided by the team from St. Alphonsus, and our friends from Our Lady of Lourdes cut all the meat to enjoy in the dinner, lunch and meat by the pound stands. It is a feast that’s not to be missed. So be at the Mount Saint Joseph Picnic on Sept. 14, where the booths open at 10:30 and dinner serving begins at 11:30.

    I would be so happy to attend the Annual Mt. Picnic, I can even taste and smell the Bar-b-que when I look at the pictures. Have a great time and really good weather.

    I was a Freshman when the first picnic was held. I haven’t been able to attend since 1988. I’m driving from OK to attend this year and can’t wait to be there. I’m praying for good weather.
