Woman Injured at Barbecue Festival When She Got Hit with Flying Brisket
The third day of the Kentucky State Barbecue Festival was in Danville, Kentucky on Sunday. And 42-year-old Mike Owings was working as a "barbecue pit master," which is an awesome title.
At some point, Mike and another pit master got into an argument over a smoker they were supposed to be sharing. And the fight ended with Mike grabbing the other guy's huge beef brisket, taking it off the grill, and throwing it.
Unfortunately Mike has a decent arm. Because the brisket ended up flying through the air, and hitting a woman in the head. Which sounds funny, but she suffered burns to her head, neck, and shoulders.
Police say the meat was between 200 and 250 degrees when it hit her. Mike is facing charges for second-degree wanton endangerment.
