Small one day ribfest in Forest Park, Il. It's their 4th annual. I've been there the last 2 out of 3 and every year it has grown. All participants are weekend warriors/hobbyists. You can get more info at www.forestpark.net/ribfest In no way am I affliated. I was contemplating on entering myself but my first baby is due on 9/5/09 so I will have to wait until next year. I might stop and visit this event, (time permitting), and if you're going to be there drop me a line. Good Luck.
