How Much for Just One Rib??July 12, 2010
For those of you not cool enough to recognize the title quote, it’s a line spoken by a very young Chris Rock in the 80’s spoof film “I’m Gonna Git You Sucka.” Rock’s character has no money, and he hangs out at a local rib joint trying to mooch free stuff. Obviously a BBQ place selling just one rib is a ludicrous notion, hence the humor; but this weekend that young man would be able to live his dream at the annual Troy Pig Out! Now entering it’s 3rd year, the Pig Out is a two-day BBQ competition, drawing national attention and BBQ companies vying for the best in ribs, chicken, brisket, and pork butt/shoulder. The food is judged by nationally certified BBQ judges from around the country, but on Saturday they will feature the People’s Choice rib competition, where the general public can sample the offerings for, that’s right…$1 per rib, and then vote for their favorite. There will also be chef demonstrations and live music. Check out the info here. Hope to see you Northeasterners there! Enjoy.
