Shorty’s Rib Fest 2013


Going in to a first annual event, we normally expect minimal crowds but Shorty’s Rib Fest broke that expectation—blew it out of the water actually.

Gates opened at noon and there was a line in front of our booth by 12:15. Our 3 smokers were filled to capacity and by 2 we had sold out, reloaded the smokers and announced that we would have more ribs at 5:30. At 4:30, a lengthy line developed and within 20 minutes we were sold out for the night.

Below are a few photos from the event, no photos of our smoky sweet and tender ribs as they were out of our hands too fast!



Thanks to Dawn Raimi for such a nice review on the Shorty’s Rib Fest Facebook page:

For fall off the bone tasty ribs go to Rooftops…….the place with “pig candy” which is also DELICIOUS!!!!! ….The only place worth going to for us!!!




Many and sincere thanks to our team moms who worked so hard serving up our ‘que!
