Owensboro, Kentucky, USA
Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn

Killer Mutton Barbecue

When Catherine and Pappy Bosley bought Moonlite Bar-B-Q back in 1963 it was just a small roadside restaurant. Four generations later, the family-run company has grown to a multi-million dollar empire, churning out thousands of pounds of mutton for the successful 350-seat restaurant and huge catering business. From the bone-in ribs to the loins and shoulders, their barbecued mutton is fantastic. The meat is hickory smoked using traditional low-and-slow methods and bathed in a spicy, vinegary mop that gives it a beautiful crunchy crust. Moonlite’s mutton is cooked perfectly, with no trace of strong, lamby flavor. Try out their famous lunch buffet, a monstrous 40-foot table chock full of barbecued mutton and homestyle sides such as homemade mac n’ cheese, ham hock-studded beans and corn muffins. This is world-class, generations-tested barbecue that you can only find in Owensboro, Kentucky.
