Rock 'N' Ribs

Nothing rocks harder on a hot summer afternoon than a cold brew and some tasty ribs. That’s why barbecue lovers can’t miss the 2011 Rock ‘N’ Ribs festival, where 28 teams of Utah’s best grillmasters will vie for a hefty $10,000 prize and spots in two of the nation’s biggest barbecue competitions.

The Rock ‘N’ Ribs event hasn’t been held since 2009 because of the construction on the Gallivan Center, but the festival is back and the ribs are tastier than ever. This year, those ribs are rockin’ to the sounds of The Trophy Husbands, Mark Jenkins, Texas Uprising and The Disgusting Brothers. Sample plates go for $3; local barbecue vendors and brewers will also ply their delicious fare. The event includes kids’ activities. (Brandon Burt)
