The Southeastern Rib Festival
The Southeastern Rib Championship is a fundraiser for the Northeast Florida Advocates for Autism and Related Disabilities, which we could not be prouder to be apart of. Less than a block from the ocean, at Main Beach Park in Fernandina Beach, we hoisted our canopy in preparation for the crowd. The crowd, comprised of residents from counties near and far, was treated to a variety of entertainment; including but not limited to TWO live bands, giant Legos, giant cup pong, and giant slides for the kids.
Due to the rules of the event, we were unable to sell our ribs until all the Competition Ribs had sold, which enabled us to sell out of all of our platters. We then were able to sell our ribs as a combo with our sides, until we sold out of them as well. We went home with three pieces of Millionaire bacon left, out of all the food we brought to the event.
Millionaire Bacon – Hog Belly, cut to about a ½ inch thick, rubbed with our sweet and spicy seasoning and slow smoked for 24 hours.
Pulled Pork Sandwich – Slow smoked over Cherry & Hickory wood, seasoned with Rustlers Rub
Brisket Sandwich – Slow smoked over Hickory wood and seasoned with Rustlers Rub
Ribs – Slow smoked and seasoned with “Rustler’s Rub,” then glazed before serving.
TK’s Cowboy Beans - Our version of baked beans, with pork & beef crumbles, pinto beans, onions, and tomatoes, seasoned with “Rustler’s Rub.”
Cathy’s Coleslaw - Our twist on traditional California cabbage with an apple cider vinegar base, olive oil, red, yellow & orange sweet peppers, and crumbles of bleu cheese mixed in with our “Rustlers Rub.”
