Pork ribs on the grill in October? Hey, we're in Sacramento

Food Grilling Slow.jpgWe're lucky here in Sacramento: We can stoke up the grill and cook ribs year-round, and the recent glorious fall weather makes that a real weekend pleasure.

If you can't get enough smokey, juicy St. Louis-style pork ribs - the cut used by professional cookers at the huge annual Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-off - look this way: The Albie Ribbin' BBQ Cook-off to benefit the Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation is planned from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Hilltop Tavern, 4757 Folsom Blvd.

Fifteen "Q teams" from area restaurants and sports bars will compete for trophies and braggin' rights. Among the sauce-slatherers will be teams from the Hilltop, Chargin's, Club Raven, Club 2 Me, Clubhouse 56 and Morgan's.

So, what does this mean for you? A $20 buy-in gets a rib dinner, entry in a raffle, a silent auction and all the live music you can handle from the Q-Balls.
