Funnel Cake, Corn Dogs, and Barbecue at the King’s County Fair

Though the Brooklyn Smoke House doesn’t open till next week, there’s plenty of barbecue to be had this weekend at Floyd Bennett Field. That’s because the Florida-based Kings County Fair is up and running until May 23 (and probably longer — we hear it just got extended a week), and this weekend Kinfolk Mobile Restaurant of Tallahassee is pulling panhandle-style brisket, chicken, pulled pork, and ribs out of an on-site smoker.

This being a county fair, there are plenty of fried foods to be had as well — amid the carnival’s attractions (a goat zoo, monkey cages, mini–roller-coasters, a ferris wheel, Buffo, “The World’s Strongest Clown,” and a beer-hall themed fun house that sadly does not serve beer, since the fair is dry), you’ll find foot-long corn dogs, funnel cakes, candied apples, chicken on a stick, and even pickles (along with socks and fish bait) in the mobile mini-mart. To send you into the weekend (and spare you the $7 entry fee), here’s a slideshow of the neon-adorned food stands.
