It was made with Russian wild boar harvested from a wild game farm in Tennessee.\u00a0 They also served venison jerky and fresh cobblers.<br \/>The team's theme was "Logging and Railroads."\u00a0 It was a nod to the West Virginia logging industry around the town of Cass from 1900 to the 1960s.<br \/>The team did a fact-finding trip to Cass in June 2016 to see what the interior of the loggers' feeding train car looked like."\u00a0 Then, team member John Pennington created an exact mock-up for the judges\u2019 area. Team member Ed Blackford painted a 10 x 12 foot Engine # 4 backdrop from old photographs.
