As promised, here is the run down of three of the four menus participating in the 2013 Rotary Ribfest. Missing is vendor/competitor Smoke & Bones, for I only had a small window to snap these pics before the smoked meat gala officially began at 11am. The eternal cheapskate, I should like to return between 11am and 8pm Saturday or Sunday and try Prairie Smoke ‘n’ Fire’s BBQ Pit Beans. My reason? The other participants’ sides appear to be add-on only vs a la carte.

Good news for those attending: They’ve erected a canopy’d eating area this year. Shade, glorious shade!

The photos of Ribfest menus are, from top to bottom (please note: missing Smoke & Bones menu):

  • Boss Hog’s
  • Gator BBQ
  • Prairie Smoke ‘n’ Spice

Friend of the Bumbling Blog, @SomeDuncan ,supplied me with this birds-eye photo of the upcoming Ribfest in Riverside Park, August 9 - 11. Look below the train bridge to see the large BBQ display kiosks. I’m hoping to snoop around before 11am Saturday morning and snap some menu pics (to be uploaded after work Sat evening).

Kamloops Ribfest 2013, presented by Interior Savings and Daybreak Rotary, will be roaring into town on August 9 - 11. Starting at 11am - 9pm on these three hallowed days, watch in awe as smoke rises from culinary altars to please the nostrils of the Meat Gods. 
I attended last year and found a wide range of pricing. Here’s a link to the 2012 menus (prices may differ this year): http://kamloopsbumbling.tumblr.com/post/29159493622/kamloops-rotary-ribfest-2012-here-are-a-few
Watch for Kamloops and area food vendors also selling tasty foods in Riverside Park during the Ribfest. Last year for example, Donut King was in attendance with “Vietnamese Sandwiches”. Need I say more?
Okay, one more thing. May I suggest taking a page from TV food host John Catucci? Bring your own re-usable cutlery. People will think you are cool. Trust me.
