Markham Ribfest talk

Curtis | Jul 16, 2005 07:20 PM

In my zeal to try and sample everything, My fellow ribbers and I managed to sample only a small sample of the fare.

We had the pulled pork and the ribs from Camp 31, the brisket sandwich from big bad wolf (I believe it's called), and the ribs from Silver Bullet.

The Camp 31 ribs were really good, tender, smoky, and ready to slip off the bone. The sauce is subtle, allowing the pork flavour to come through. The pork sandwich was good, tender (although just a bit dry) pork with the same nice light saucy finish applied to the ribs.

The Wolf brisket is nice and smoky, but suffered from some dryness, which was cleverly offsetted by slicing the brisket very thinly. The sauce was alright and tangy, though not too far off from most commercial steak sauce brands.

The Silver Bullet rib sauce was sweeter and stronger than the Camp 31 sauce without tasting sickly sweet, and although we thought it went well with the ribs, the ribs themselves were less tender and smoky than the Camp 31 ribs.
