Horn Dawgs Smokin BBQ are the Top Dawgs at Whitby Ribfest 2014 (along with pics from Bowmanville and Pickering Ribfests)

This is only my 3rd Ribfest of 2014 which is pretty far off the mark of 18 that I went to in 2012 but I still love to attend.

This past weekend was the 3rd Annual Whitby Ribfest and I had the pleasure of going on the Sunday along with my buddy Joe and some of my family too.

As you can see the local Fire Department was on hand in case any of the smokers got out of hand 😉 That is Joe ready to man the controls lol

8 of the more popular Ribbers were vending up thousands of fall of the bone juicy racks of Ribs along with mouth watering Chicken, Pulled Pork and Brisket.

I did not take many pics this day, as I was quite busy spending time with family but I did take a few snaps of the awards which I was present to watch.

The big winners of the day were the local team from Oshawa, Horn Dawgs Smokin BBQ

This year the only awards given were for Best Judged Ribs and Best Judged Sauce that was determined by a panel of celebrity judges (1st, 2nd and 3rd place)

In the Best Judged, Silver Bullet took 1st in both Ribs and Sauce with Horn Dawgs taking 2nd place and Billy Bones taking 3rd

Some would argue what do Judges know? (hehe, I have been a judge at other Ribfests and it is a tough job, they are all good!)

What do the masses think and which Ribber is The People’s Choice?

Rob Butler of Horn Dawgs took home the bacon so to speak by winning People’s Choice in Both Best Ribs and Best Sauce as voted by the crowds of thousands at the weekend event.

Silver Bullet and Bone Daddy’s took home 2nd and 3rd.

I have to give a shout-out to Manda (pictured far right above) she is Rob’s main assistant that does so much week in and week out all Summer long and many of you know of her from previous years, she has become quite famous!

But when I saw her on Sunday she was in pain with a sore back and had lost her voice but kept on working, such a trooper!!!

Here are some photos I took at the show a couple of weeks earlier in Bowmanville and a shout out to Gus  from Crabby’s BBQ Shack, He is always there to shake my hand and let me taste his wonderful BBQ that is actually baked not smoked, a little different than the others but still tastes great!

Gus won for best Chicken and Horn Dawgs also came away with more trophies too!

Both Horn Dawgs and Crabby’s have been close friends to me on the Ribfest Circuit, and I appreciate that they support me and my blog.

 

 

Below I have included some pics that I took at the Pickering Ribest at the beginning of June which was the first Ribfest of the season, and Horn Dawgs won awards there as well, they are always bringing home hardware from every show!
