After a massively successful first stop on our UK Tour in Leicester, we were back in Birmingham on Sunday for Round 4 at The Church Inn!
We had all the usual suspects – 2 world renowned BBQ teams producing absolutely amazing ribs, Jim Beam cocktail specials, the infamous Pickleback (you either love it or hate it!!), music from our resident DJ Manzo, close hands magic from Gavin Parsons (with Christian Fletcher stepping in for the evening sitting), live art from Nineteen degrees…and of course, a room full of hungry rib lovers ready to feast and getting filthy before deciding on a winner!
Round 4 saw Racks of Ruins take on Andy Annat International Crackerjack BBQ in a close battle that left the room divided. Both teams produced absolute quality ribs and we just wanted to take the time again to say a huge thanks to them for competing in Rib Nights!
And the winner of Round 4 was…Andy Annat International Crackerjack BBQ!
The weekend of Round 4 also coincided with Rib Nights hitting the Birmingham Mail. We took over the front page of the weekend pullout with an awesome 2 page spread inside! This was following a fantastic write up in the Birmingham Post by Mary Griffin the week before.
Rib Nights regular Pollyscoffs gave us another fantastic review on her food blog – http://pollyscoffs.com/2014/05/12/rib-nights-round-4. And newcomer to Rib Nights (but we’re hoping her and her party will be regulars now!) Emma Stokes posted an amazing review of the afternoon sitting whilst the evening sitting was still in full swing too – http://www.emmavictoriastokes.com/2014/05/rib-nights-rib-smacking-event-round-4.html
It’s been called “the best one yet” by more than a few, and we’ve had a great response from the surveys we sent out. We’re now working to make Round 5 even better for all our devoted ribsters and newbies…watch this space for more details on Round 5 AND the next stop on our UK tour!
