Rip's Ribs Cook-Off:

LOCATION: ON THE DOWNTOWN SQUARE

The Annual Rip's Ribs Cook-off is a great day in downtown Eastland to fire up your grill and make your famous Ribs with special rubs, sauces, spices, and more! Enjoy a variety of vendors, and more food options than you have room in your stomach for.

 

Each year we give away over $2,500 in cash prizes to the top cookoff teams! Cooks can enter the “People’s Choice” categories in Appetizers, Beans, Desserts, and/or Meat (excluding St. Louis-style pork ribs) for $10 per category or $30 for all four. Winners in these additional categories will get the entry pot for that category and a year’s worth of bragging rights.

"People's Choice" category entries MUST BE COOKED ON SITE.
