Before Saturday, we had never participated in a rib competition. Knowing this, we enlisted the help of a couple guys who know their BBQ. The Rogue Estate, like us, know good food and how to prepare it.
After a couple weeks of extensive “research,” we had a recipe we were confident would impress at least a couple people. When it was all said and done, we fed close to 1,000 people and more than a couple were impressed.
More importantly, however, is each of those 1000 people paid $10 to taste the ribs of each competing team and nearly all of that money goes directly to charity. There’s no better feeling than feeding folks delicious food and doing it all for a good cause.
The Pork-Kings took home the Rookie Team of the Year trophy and came quite close to pulling an amazing upset and winning the overall judges’ award as well.
Even though it was a 14 hour day, we had a blast cooking and feeding as many people we could (our apologies to all those who missed out – we ran out quite early). Next year we’re gunning for the number one spot.
Thanks to Dino’s Lounge for putting on this great event. We’re already looking forward to next year!
