Rib Cook-Off Recap


The A Full Plate Rib Cook-Off was a great success Saturday with more than 600 people showing up behind the Piazza at Schmidt’s for all types of barbecue.

We judged the blind tasting in the professional ribs category where Tower Investments came out on top. They had a gentleman sporting cowboy boots and hat as part of their team, always a good sign when it came to barbecue.

It’s impressive how good the “amateurs” are at these competitions. They are true barbecue enthusiasts, worthy of praise.

We also decided we are quite the fans of Root liqueur and Pennsylvania Dutch Birch Beer.
