I've only been once before and my goal was to eat ribs from each competitor. I can't remember if I made it around, but today I'll get my chance!
Here are some pics (and where I ate) in 2009:
My first time trying Bib's ribs. I was sold on it after the very 1st bite.
I fell in love with the hushpuppies in front of about 50 people.
My favorite ribs. They were the defending champs 5 years running and I saw why--
tender, juicy, great sauce, nice crust on the outside.
I hope they're showing at the festival this year *crosses fingers*
