Rock’n Ribfest includes all types of entertainment, games and food, but the main event is the ribs served up by eight barbecue teams from as far away as Australia.
Goffstown resident Steve Dovich who was cooking with Firefly Bodacious Bar-B-Que from Marlborough, Mass., said that while the rib cooks were competing, it was a friendly competition.
Still, Dovich figured his crew would come in ahead of the other cooks. “We’re Boston strong,” he said. Under an enormous tent sent up for people to relax and enjoy the food, Auburn residents Bill and Mary Calder were tying a few different dishes.“The pulled pork was really good,” said Mary Calder. And her husband added that his ribs were “Awesome.”
