Bayshore Trailer Park wins rib cook-off

For Loco Catering, the team headed by Lee Edmiston and Roy Ogles, “it’s all in the love of the ribs.” The team doesn’t use a sauce, but dusts theirs with garlic and pepper and “whatever we find in the kitchen at the time,” and cooks its entries three different ways.

“And at the end, we taste ‘em and see which ones we want to submit,” said Edmiston, whose team raised $289 for the fire department, third among the booths.

The Apalachicola Volunteer Fire Department was tight-lipped about their cooking method. “It’s a secret recipe, just something we threw together,” said Ashley Teat. “Slow and easy.”

Six of the eight judges - Paul and Gail Riegelmayer, Jim and Maxine Cobb, Fred Stanley, and Jimmy Lewis - were all Kansas City barbecue certified, and were assisted by Bob Heide and Vito Bell.

With a carnival for the kids, and an expanded silent auction, the entire event “went pretty well,” said chief Pruett. “We sold out of chicken and ribs, 850 pounds of ribs, close to 50 Boston butts and three cases of chicken halves. It went off without a flaw, not one hitch, no glitches. What a blessing.”
