Can’t Make This Up

Yes sirree - there will be a Texas Testicle Festival in Fredericksburg, TX this weekend. 
https://www.wideopeneats.com/texas-testicle-festival/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=agora&utm_term=woefeed&utm_campaign=woefeed

I’ve eaten a bunch of mountain oysters over the years and like them. But an entire festival seems a stretch. 
Coleman, Texas
Large BGE & Mini Max for the wok. A few old camp Dutch ovens and a wood fired oven. LSG 24” cabinet offset smoker. There are a few paella pans and a Patagonia cross in the barn. 
"Bourbon slushies. Sure you can cook on the BGE without them, but why would you?"

    Just don’t try raw mountain oysters. It’s a good way to get dragged to death.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Didn’t @Mickey go and report on this a couple of years ago?  Somewhere smaller than Fredericksburg though.

    I guess left and right festivals makes sense.

    @Village Idiot and I in Castell at the Testicle Festival. These shots in the above post. 

    Salado TX Egg Family: 3 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max when they came out (I'm good for now).

    They were fine. Would not try unless fried.

    My college roommate brought a bag back from Minnesota, fried them up, and they weren't bad (reminded me of breaded mushrooms)
    A year later he brought back another bag, but still fresh off the mammal, not fully skinned/cleaned.  I walked to the local McD's and had a cheeseburger.

    Is it possible you were tanked the first year?

    I had never heard of a testicle festival in Minnesota, but a friend from North Dakota was proud of the one held somewhere out there. He even gave me a "Lee's Testicle Festival" t-shirt, which unfortunately has shrunk over the years (well, let's just say it no longer fits and leave it at that).

    If you didn’t know they were nads, you would think they were just a weird cutlet of chicken fried steak. If you did know, you would really prefer chicken fried steak. 

    if you were at a party and didn’t know, you would pop them like meaty tic tacs

    “Meaty tic tacs”

    yet another phrase from this forum that I’ve never heard before and don’t expect to hear again.

    Mountain oysters and beef cheeks both are very un-appetizing before they are prepared.

    Reminds me of the visitor to Mexico who went to a bull fight and afterwards went out to eat at a restaurant nearby.  Ask waiter what was good on menue and he told him the cajones were good.  He had them and thought they were really good.

    Next day went back to bullfights and decided to try them again for supper.  Had them and again good but he ask waiter about the ones yesterday were larger and had a slightly different flavor.  "What is the difference in yesterday's and today's?" he ask.  Waiter said" Senior, sometimes the bull he does not always win"

    I totally expect @JohnInCarolina to unveil a testicle pie at BB2020 using the Roccbox.

    Just be cautious if @JohnInCarolina goes to the petting zoo prior to making pizzas. 

    Just sayin'. Things get dicey when he runs out of chicken.
