Ribfest is an annual event that brings residents out to compete for the “best in barbeque.” Each group cooked their own special recipe for attendees to sample and cast a vote for their favorite. In addition, Baytree served brats and hotdogs. At the end of the day, an award was given to the hometown favorite based on the popular vote and a trophy was presented to the “best in show” as determined by the judges committee which included Baytree Bank Chairman, Rob Isham.
