OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

Owensboro's famous BBQ is being featured on the Travel Channel.

Andrew Zimmern, star of the Travel Channel's show Bizarre Foods, profiled the Old Hickory Bar-B-Q for a future episode.

Camera crews showed employees loading and unloading barbeque pits near the restaurant.

The staff at Old Hickory Bar-B-Q says over a ton of meat was sliced today and Zimmern's visit was very exciting.

"We were all pretty excited about it and couldn't wait for him to get here really. Like I said. I watch the show. I wanted to meet him," said Steve Ford, manager at Old Hickory Bar-B-Q.

Old Hickory Bar-B-Q is located on Washington Avenue in Owensboro.
