Preparations have begun for the rib competition on September 2. Adam has completed brewing a batch of barley pop at Vine Park in St. Paul and Brad and Kyle have just completed a batch of English Bitters on the deck. Judging this year will be in two categories. Each of the ManCuisine contestants has been invited to bring one judge that they feel will apply great energy to giving an inspired and fair judgement on the ribs. In addition all attendees will complete a scoresheet to select the winner in the “Ribs of the proletariat” award. Sorta like the Academy and Golden Globe awards?
Anyway, while moving a large playground this weekend we had a time to talk trash about each other’s rib recipes. Seems that nobody is satisfied with what is coming off the grill yet. Suggestions still welcomed.
