Mustangs’ chicken BBQ today

Lyons tradition is held for 65th straight year

By Steve Metsch

One of the most popular traditions in Lyons returns for a 65thstraight year.

The Lyons Mustangs Athletic Club will once again host its chicken barbecue from noon to 7 p.m. today at the Mustangs Hall, 4047 Leland Ave.

Mustangs President Ed Metz expects another large turnout.

Metz recently said he was surprised at the dedication seen last year when, despite a rainy start, folks didn’t let the weather keep them away.

About 600 chickens are prepared rotisserie style each year under the direction of head chef Jerry Wozniak. Each dinner is a half-chicken and includes all the fixings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last year, Metz said that there are 25 chickens on each pole: “It takes three guys to carry the poles when they pick them up. We used charcoal in the fire pit, and a machine slowly turns the poles to cook the chickens,” Metz said.

Dinner tickets are available at the door. Hot dogs will be available for children, along with games. There will be a beer truck along with a cash bar serving hard liquor.

The club sponsors a team in the Lyons McCook Little League each year and contributes to charities. The event raises funds to help pay for upkeep of the hall, and for causes like local food pantries.

There will be door prizes and raffles.
