Do the Amish care about the Super Bowl? I’ve learned never to make blanket statements about them. I’m sure there’s an Amish person somewhere today rooting on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. And elsewhere, there’s probably an Amish person pining for the Giants. But, on balance, most Amish will mark this day with little fanfare. That doesn’t mean the Amish don’t do a little “tail-gating” of their own. Okay, this isn’t actual tail-gating, but this is a scene of a beautiful day outside grilling at the Amish Cook’s house last summer. In the above photo, Elizabeth’s boyfriend Tim brings some more chicken to the grill. Doesn’t this look like a tasty scene? With the unseasonably mild weather across most of the Midwest, outdoor scenes like this are bizarrely common.
This is a common barbecue recipe in Amish households. Enjoy! Now, who do you want to win: the Giants? The Patriots? Or who cares?
