Hudson Valley, NY, Ribfest
Tue, 08/4/09 2:39 PM
The Hudson Valley Ribfest will be held at the Ulster County Fairgrounds on August 14,15,16. The Highland Rotary Club member who is in charge tells me that they expect about 60 contestants this year - I think there were about 40 or 50 last year. The contestants prep area is open to the public and a lot of them are happy to give you a taste of whatever they are preparing - chicken, ribs, pulled pork, and unique to this affair, they are required to do an apple dish, It's remarkable what some contestants can do with apples on their grills.
