Blurt Ed. Note: Food Editor Suzanne Podhaizer is live blogging the Green Mountain Chew Chew Fest today at the Burlington Waterfront.
Don't think pigs can fly? They can at Big Fatty's BBQ! BFB's "pig wings" are tender, meaty pork shanks in a light, slightly sweet sauce. Clay, the owner, calls 'em "authentic redneck ossobuco." Hah!
They cost 3 tokens (by the way, the catfish taco was 4 tokens), and are definitely worth it.
Choosing what to buy here is definitely an art. I attempt to manage my tokens so that I don't have any left at the end of the day. Assuming I plan to spend $10 on tokens (18 total), I'll need to either get six 3-token dishes or three 4-token dishes and two 3-token dishes. Or, if you're not crazy like me, you can relax, get whatever you want and not worry so much about the tokens!
Event organizer Rick Norcross mentioned in passing that there are 10,000 tokens from previous years floating around out there, so I guess most people take the latter approach!
