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 dont 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 dont have to. Its better if you get it from the store, actually. Then you dont have to clean the gravel out.
