We happened to be in Sudbury during Ribfest, so we got a half rack from Boss Hog’s BBQ.
Over there, a half-rack is generous, so we were too full after sharing this to try anything else.
We also had some Pappy’s Olde Fashioned Soda. I liked the grape and orange flavours. Butter beer was a bit too sweet. It tasted like butterscotch!
As you know, I was up north on the weekend. Any time I mentioned Nash’s parents live in a town near Sudbury, everybody always asked if I’ve ever been to the Big Nickel. Now I can finally say I have!
The nickel has overlooked Sudbury since 1964. Sudbury was originally established as a mining town where nickel played a big role.
It was modelled after the 1951 Canadian nickel with King George.
