Rib-off 2011

August 1, 2011

The 3rd annual rib-off competition was the best one yet! Last year we were a bit crowded in the house, so we decided to have the rib off in conjunction with our neighborhood block party. Our friends C & S live on the street next to ours so we did it in front of their house. Thanks guys!

My friend Kelli of Shindig Events handled the setup/signage/decorations etc… since she has started her own event planning business. She even set up a photo staging area for everyone complete with props. Cute! It was a huge help.  A major highlight was the Street Treats truck arriving in time to serve us dessert. My sweet tooth did not object. The ice cream sandwiches were perfect on a hot summer day.

Did I mention I won…again? I mean, it’s not big deal, but I’m sure you were wondering. Here is this years recipe.
