Road Kill Cookoff

Submitted by on September 4, 2011 – 12:54 amNo Comment

Once upon a time, humankind hunted for food. The modern equivalent of stalking the mammoth is…driving, especially at dawn and dusk. That’s when we’re most likely to hit something on the road.

Not to be accused of wasting food, some consider road kill the modern method of getting back to the original way of providing sustenance. It’s estimated that 81% of “flat meats” are mammals (it has been reported that Michigan uses roadkill statistics to estimate its deer population).

So, Road Trips Foodies, you knew there’d be a Road Kill Cookoff, didn’t you? The next one’s set for September 24, 2011, in Marlinton, West Virginia. The cooking starts at 9 a.m., and the judging commences at 2 p.m.

If you’ve ever wanted to taste exotic dishes like squirrel gravy over biscuits, teriyaki-marinated bear or deer sausage, this is the place to be. The fest is sponsored by Pocahantas County.

To be specific: roadkill is an animal (or animals) that have been struck and killed by motor vehicles. The most common fatality? Squirrels.
