What's a trip without a little good food? I had read an article in Southern Living Magazine about good southern Bar-B-Que joints, and it mentioned a place in Marion, Ky. that wasn't too far away from the lake. So you know me, that has 2 of the main ingredients for a road trip - food and geocaching.
Anytime we go anyplace, I look up the area on my geocaching map and see what geocaches are nearby. One of the geocaches - Marion's Covered Bridge - was hidden on an old covered bridge, so we loaded it into the GPS and headed out. The co-ordinates were off by about 20 feet, but Louie made the find.
We found one more geocache and since it was about 105 degrees in the shade and we were all a hot mess, we decided to forego any more geocaching and go directly to the food.
The Marion Pit Bar-B-Q is located on the main drag in Marion.
It's a small little building and you order at the take out window...
I had a pork sandwich with pickles and a side of potato salad. The pork was seriously about the best pork I have ever eaten. It was delicious and tender. I felt they skimped a little on the barbecue sauce, which was really kind of poured over the pork. I would have preferred more sauce with the pork kind of swished around in it. But that's just me. The potato salad was very good as well...
They had a cute little enclosed building with tables so we could sit and enjoy our lunch out of the way of the blazing sun.
After lunch we high-tailed it back to the air conditioned house for a nap. 105 is too hot to do much of anything, even for me.
