Roadkill Meat Is A Tasty Treat

MARLINTON, W.Va. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One festival in West Virginia lets folks cook up meat from their car’s grill on their barbecue grill.

The 17th Annual Roadkill Cook-Off is heating things up in Marlinton, West Virginia, tomorrow (Sep. 27), and cooks will whip up meaty meals using the carcass of a recently run-over animal.

According to event spokesperson David Cain, folks in Marlinton have their pick of the litter when it comes to premium road kill.

He says, “This is a real rural area, so we have good ingredients everywhere just wandering around.”

Contestants fry up anything from possum to alligator, but don’t necessarily have to go hunting for their ingredients in their pickup trucks.

Cain explains, “You can scrape the animals off your bumper or get them off the road if you want, but you don’t have to. It’s better if you get it from the store, actually. Then you don’t have to clean the gravel out.”
