There is an area around Owensboro, Kentucky, that is probably the only place in the country where mutton is the signature bbq dish.

The bold taste of mutton would not be complete without a Western Kentucky BBQ Sauce made with Kentucky bourbon. The locals call this barbeque sauce black dip. This sauce complements the mutton perfectly, and the Kentucky bourbon provides another level of great flavor.
