Brazos River Ribfest

The Baylor University Campus is very beautiful. Much of it is along the Brazos river that meanders through Waco. As we drove through the campus admiring the beauty, we discovered that the Brazos River Ribfest was happening at the Baylor Bears Mcclane Stadium pictured above. Smoked pig, live music, and bouncy house dreams beckoned us like the Sirens in Homer’s Odyssey and we were unable to resist the call.

For $10 you could buy a ticket that let you sample ribs from each of the five competitors. After sampling the porky goodness, we were then able to vote on our favorite ribs for the People’s Choice award. It was really fun for our family to try them all. THese were the best ribs we have ever sampled.rib taste test.jpg

They were all really good. After trying all of the offerings five of us voted for Porky Chicks BBQ. Mason voted for Lightning BBQ.

After eating the ribs, we were able to listen to some good ‘ol’ country music and a few of us were daring enough to hop in a bouncy house. The siren call of smoked meat lulled us into the ribfest and we almost didn’t have the ability to leave. Luckily the meat festival closed up at 10 PM or we might still be there, laying on the ground with our rotund bellies full, a look of simple satisfaction on our faces, forgetting about our quest to travel further through the good old US of A.

  1. Hi, Mike. I’ve got to disagree on this one. Don’t eat porkers/ mammal meat. But, I’m sure your family had a fabulous time!
