“THE DAY NO RIBS WILL BE SPARED”
Join Moonshine Brewing Company once again for another crazy rib cook-off contest. The culinary gauntlet will be thrown down for a 4th consecutive year in our spacious parking lot, where over a dozen of Chicago’s leading chefs will compete for the title of “Smoke-out Champion” and the coveted Gilded Grill trophy.
Last year’s Rib-a-Que was a smash success, with over a metric ton of ribs, 500 hungry people and 15 fierce competitors at the event! With live music all day from Sanctified Grumblers (noon) and Tangleweed (3 pm) and Moonshine’s famous hand-crafted beers, the Rib-a-Que is the perfect way to button-up summertime activities in Chicago.
Each contestant will feature their own take on BBQ baby back ribs, plus one side dish.
The public will cast their vote, along with a line-up of celebrity judges, including the editor of Urban Daddy, Chris LaMorte, the Editor-in-Chief of Chicagoist, Chuck Sudo, the producer of Check Please, David Manilow, and Chef Rick Gresh from David Burke’s Primehouse. Winners are chosen for both Popular Vote and Judges Vote. Prizes include cash and of course, bragging rights to the Gilded Grill!
Tickets are $25 in advance through www.ticketweb.com or at Moonshine, or $35 at the door. This event is “Rain or (Moon)Shine!!
