The Kiwanis Club of Hilton Head Island announced today that the 15th Annual Rib Burnoff and Barbecue Fest which will be held at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn, from 12:00 Noon to 4:00 PM, Saturday, May 14th, 2011, rain or shine, will feature the local band The Groovetones. The Club has commitments from restaurants: LWoods, Applebee’s, One Hot Mama’s, Smokehouse, Montana’s and Bomboras. Several amateurs include Tom Rousch and Hogs in Heat. In 2010, 19 cooks were entered in both categories and the Club expects close to the same as the event was covered in the May issue of Southern living Magazine. In this year’s blind judging to pick the Judges’ award winners there will be 2 certified South Carolina barbecue judges at each judging table to direct the community leaders on appropriate tasting methods. As usual, ticket holders will vote for the popular vote winners.
Ticket prices for this year’s event will be the same as 2010, $12 in advance and $15 at the door. This year, each ticket will include 7 samples of either barbecue or ribs, as opposed to 3 samples in the past. Advance purchase of tickets can be made at Burke’s Pharmacy-Main Street, Coastal Discovery Museum, Reilley’s Bar&Grill-South, User Friendly-29-F Hunter Road, Bluffton Pharmacy-167-B Bluffton Road, and Honey Baked Ham Company, Bluffton, and any Kiwanis member.
Supervised children’s activities will be available in a confined area. Beer, wine, soda, hot dogs and ice cream will also be available for purchase. There will be a limited number of corporate sponsorships available which will include 20 tickets to the event. In addition, advance tickets will be sold at several local businesses at a reduced price.
