Texas Monthly – “They smoke a seasoned turkey breast then dunk the whole thing into a fryer to finish it off. The result is juicy turkey whose slices have thick crispy edges. It was some of the better smoked turkey I’ve had…..The ribs were also excellent. The meat was moist and came from the bone perfectly. A subtle sweet rub allowed a good dark crust to form and the meat was very smokey.” from September 26, 2012 by Daniel Vaughn Read Full Review here

Its matriarch, Jeanne Baker, spent almost four decades working for the State Fair, starting as a secretary in the exhibits department and eventually serving as the department’s director. Baker retired in 1994. Her daughter, Suzie Duncan, said the family is thrilled to have an opportunity “to become part of the fried food tradition at the greatest fair in the nation. I was raised on the fairgrounds, and it feels as if I’m coming home.” See Entire Article.
