Food suggestions for a Kentucky road trip! [Owensboro, Bardstown, Louisville, Lexington and in-between]

Hello. My girlfriend and I will be traveling through Kentucky on a road trip. We would love to explore some of the local food Kentucky has to offer. We know we will be going through Owensboro for BBQ. Any picks for the best BBQ in Owensboro? I'm especially interested in mutton. We will also be going through Bardstown and the bourbon trail area. Food suggestions or off-the-beaten-path distillery suggestions? Also would be interested in suggestions for Louisville and Lexington. We're from New York, so we're not really interested in fine dining. We would like suggestions that include home-style southern, diners, local specialties and the likes. Also, where can we sample some Kentucky country ham? One last question: Do people in Kentucky actually eat/appreciate the hot brown or is that for tourists? Sorry if the post was rambling but we're excited to see what Kentucky has to offer. Thanks in advance!
