Bring on the Ribs

Each month at Grand Champion Meats, we have a monthly special, and for the month of March, it’s time to bib up because Ribfest is here!

All month long, Grand Champion Meats has ribs on sale! Some are fully cooked (heat and eat) and some raw, but all are on SALE:

So what is Ribfest? It’s one type of food festival that generally has multiple food vendors selling beef or pork ribs. There are plenty of food festivals that take place around the United States throughout the year, but there’s nothing quite like eating a variety of ribs. Reader’s Digest featured the top ten summer food festivals in the United States, and one rib festival made the list. The Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off takes place in Sparks, Nevada, August 31st-September 5th and attracts half a million rib-lovers. Over the course of the festival, roughly 100 tons of ribs are served! Crazy, we know, but that’s only one startling statistic. Another amazing highlight of this specific festival is the rib-eating tournament that takes place in which participants have 12 minutes to eat as many pounds of ribs as they can - the record is 9.8 pounds!

Although they may not be as crazy as The Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off, there are a number of Ribfests that take place in Minnesota each year as well including the Twins Cities Ribfest that will take place this June. As much as we would like it to be June to enjoy some delicious ribs, we can help you get your tastebuds ready for the upcoming rib festivals with our Ribfest March specials!

Stop in to try one or all of the options listed above, and keep your bib on all March long!
