BBQ Fest Visitors Go Hog Wild At Highland Park
Rochester, N.Y. – Visitors at Highland Park this weekend tasted the meat, not the heat in the air.
The Big Rib BBQ & Blues Fest featured all sorts of food vendors from the Rochester area and across the country, plus live music.
Only one local barbecue joint – Good Smoke BBQ in East Rochester – took part, facing competition from Texas, Florida, Illinois and Canada.
Good Smoke’s owner and pit master, Brian Wemett, said the weekend went well for his team, which took first place for its ribs.
“The weather has been incredible, the crowds have been incredible, it's awesome,” Wemett said. “We're just getting so much support from our hometown here in Rochester. We're up against the big boys here, so we're trying our best to put out a really good-quality product and really represent Roc City."
