Miami-Dade's Ribfest 2009 Lineup Announced
Grill smoke carries barbecue flavors through the air as beer, sauce and music flow freely.
Ribfest is coming November 7 and 8 to Homestead Air Reserve Park (Moody Drive and SW 122 Avenue).
Local ribbers Huckleberry Hillbilly and Smoke & Spice battle out-of-state touring barbecue teams like Big Boned BBQ in the rib competition where "12 grill masters will compete for best barbecue meat and sauce; from ribs and chicken, to pork and brisket," according to a press release.

headliners on Saturday night. Country music on Sunday with Tracy
Lawrence, appearing later at the Nashville Mission Turkey Fry, and
Chuck Wicks, who just played the National Peanut Festival in Alabama.
