Fett Svin raids the ROC
2012 KCBS Overall Award
The Viking I Mobile Landraider points towards Monroe County and its home away from home to cap off National BBQ Month at what has become one of the largest and well-known BBQ competitions in the northeast and perhaps the largest food event hosted in Rochester: the Roc City Rib Fest May 24 through the 27.
Fett Svin will be returning to defend the seven various awards we won over the course of the weekend in 2012 including three different rib honors; brisket, chicken and pork shoulder awards and a People’s Choice nod. We are also one of the handful of competitors to offer our BBQ for sale during the four-day festival so be sure to visit the Viking I.
As though the emanation of award-winning smoke on the shores of Lake Ontario were not enough motivation to come out this weekend, there is also live music all day every day, free activities for the kids and additional vendors throughout the venue. Just a reminder that the cost of admission is a donation to the Golisano Children’s Hospital.
If you are not eating competition level Q you are missing out – this proves it – and Memorial Day Weekend is your chance to sample the offerings from our award-winning menu including: St. Louis style pork spare ribs with Battle Axe rub and competition glaze, Bacon B.O.M.B.s, Koolickles, Cornbread Cake Pops w/ Bacon Cream Cheese frosting and more. Our tried and true favorites will be joining some newer offerings that you won’t find from any another BBQ joint or food truck. Stay tuned for updates throughout the weekend. Lagom.
