Cameron Park, California was the location of the first ‘Ribstock’ (Peace, Love & BBQ). Cameron Park is a unique community because of their airport district. This district has a private runway to land personal aircraft. The streets are very wide to accommodate airplanes to taxi to their homes. Needless to say the resident’s garages are very large. This was quiet the site to see.
We arrived at Ribstock in a more conventional mode of transportation. In fact it was Ms. Goofy’s ‘Formula One Racing Honda’. The BBQ competitors were wrapped around a beautiful small lake. In the morning a foggy mist rose from the lake to mingle with the sweet smell of barbeque smoke. We performed our difficult duty to judge these Warriors of the ‘Barbeque Pit’. I say difficult because, everything presented to us was so good.
Ribstock was a fun family affair. Amusement rides for the children and groovy music for the adults. Numerous craftsmen sold their wares. Barbeque was available for purchase by the taste from competitors or a complete meal from local BBQ vendors. All this took place in the beautiful tree shaded ‘Cameron Park Lake’.
‘All Sauced Up’ barbeque team won the overall championship today. All the barbeque teams that competed were winners in my book. This was a great first time barbeque event held in a beautiful venue. We are looking forward to next years Ribstock.
