So who's doing the cooking?

What's a ribfest without a bit of friendly rivalry? The Rotary Club of Cobourg welcomes some of North America's best ribbers to town for the 2019 Northumberland Ribfest.

These people travel across North America competing for the "best ribber" award at festivals, fairs and competitions.

First on our list is the legendary Billy Bones BBQ. Billy Bones also offers a great variety of barbeque sauces, rubs and hot sauce.

Silver BulletThe Silver Bullet team is from Guelph, Ontario and participates in over 20 shows a year. They have been making delicious BBQ ribs, chicken, and pulled-pork for over 10 years

You haven't tasted ribs until you've tasted Boss Hog's. The Boss was the 2008 People's Choice winner!

Bibbs has won more than 40 major Ribfest awards... and they're from Toronto!

Uncle Sam's

 Uncle Sam's BBQ from Albuquerque, New Mexicois back with us for another year! In 2008 the media chose Uncle Sam as Best Sauce and Best Ribs.

Jack on the BoneYou may not think of Ohio as barbeque country but the Jack On The Bone BBQ team has been doing it right for more than 25 years. Based in Massillon, Ohio, they have won more than 300 awards in the USA and Canada!
