It’s hard to pick just one!


A group of judges made up from media, business and the community had the hard task of deciding what chicken or ribs they liked best. It’s all part of Ribfest, part of Rotaryfest for a fifth year.

Bruce Clement representing Superior Media had a great time deciding

Bruce Clement from / Superior Media was all too happy to be one of the four judges taste testing the four varieties of BBQ Chicken, another four judges selected the BBQ ribs.

The four competing pits include ,   Route 55, The Hogfather, Jack The Ribber and Billy Bones who holds the 2016 title.

A vote of confidence?

Other judges included Sault MPP Ross Romano, selecting the chicken – as did Christian Lemay from Shaw TV and Rotary Ambassador, Isobel Farstad . Chowing down on the ribs were social media winner, Winston Sullivan and well as Derek Turner from Village media and Ed Stewart from the Rotary Club and Brent Lewis from Maitland Motors.

Tough job eh?

The public were also invited to make their selection for the best chicken or ribs.

Winners will be announced at 5:50pm on Stage 1 Saturday. Ribfest poll closes at 5pm.
