In a not-to-be named, non-descript cul-de-sac, in Wilkesboro, NC, God’s nectar is served in gallon plastic jugs. This spicy cavalcade of flavors does a tango with your taste buds! In true mountain style, use the honor system and place $15 in the cardboard box on the card table in the garage, and you too can slip away with your gallon of ambrosia. Yes, it is true!
My friend Steven Roten explained that he learned about this fantastic marinade from his brother. When he experienced the unique, illusive flavor for the first time, he compared it to the nostalgic memory of the fire department barbecue of his youth.
This evening, I am dining with my dear friends, Steven and Laura Roten, in Cary, NC. We are having Steven’s Mystery Marinade Pork Tenderloin. As he described to me the delicious flavor and the clandestine experience of arranging the pick up, I was mesmerized.
The smell of the grill beckons me!
I wish I could give you directions and ingredients, but the ingredients remain a MYSTERY! However, I am leaving my $15 with Steven so that he can purchase my first gallon of mystery marinade! I can’t wait!
