The B-Street Rib off is back for another year, this year moving north of the river to Argenta.
For those of you who have not attended in the past, the Rib Off is a BBQ cooking competition that supports the American Cancer Society. In previous years the event has taken place in Hillcrest (on B Street, yes that is where the name comes from), but due to popularity they will move to a larger venue.
This is always one of our favorite BBQ challenges each year. It started with a group of college friends who wanted to raise some money and have a good time. As a bonus they actually give the money raised to the intended charity, which is always nice to see in an event like this.
Early registration for teams ends tomorrow, so register your team now. Full press release is below:
*Note: Rock City Times / Rock City Eats is a sponsor of this event, mostly because we think what they do is awesome and we want to help spread the word.
