What's Cookin' Kentucky

I'm  pretty sure many of you are like me -- I've got special foods I cook before UK football and, especially, basketball games.

During basketball season I like to slow cook a pot of chili.  I've got  a white chili recipe that will burn your socks off.

There's been some disasters.  I once decided to use garlic cloves instead of of garlic powder.  You know?, there's a difference.  That whole pot went down the drain.  Lord, have mercy.  As I went for my walk that night, these people in goth clothes kept coming up to me, saying, "Vampire Slayer". Last year, I made a pot of Texas Chili for the UofL basketball game. Mistake.  The combination of the jalapenos and the alleged Swopshire elbow (it was a push with a forearm, you morons) -- Well, I was uncomfortable.

But I have my food traditions.

For tomorrow's kick-off, I'm attempting a pot of Burgoo -- my first.  It's based on Keeneland's recipe and the Owensboro barbecue festivals of my youth and visits.  So far, so good.  The stoneware seems to be holding, :), and the house smells good. I'll let it age until tomorrow, and will have a big bowl ready (with cornbread) at 3:30.

So, what's your UK food traditions?

Barbecue as you tailgate outside of Commonwealth Stadium?  A monster Brat and Mett barbecue as you prepare for the game on TV? 

This post may fail, but I figured I'd give it a try.

Let's share.  Traditions?  Recipes?
