For four days, seven teams are taking over Headwaters Park for the 19th annual BBQ Ribfest.Low N Slow is known for being founded locally in 2009 by David Hart. Hart is one of two local teams at Ribfest; Timmy’s Pizza and BBQ is located in Garrett.
Hart’s team consists of family and friends, and said it has become a family reunion for him.
For its eighth year, Low N Slow added an old livestock trailer and transformed it into a mobile kitchen, and it added a new item to the menu; Caesar salad. The Caesar salad can have chicken, brisket or pulled pork added to it.However, Hart hasn’t changed out they cook their ribs. They are cooked with charcoal and wood.
"You can tell the difference in the taste because we still get a wood taste to it," Hart said.
He loves doing the BBQ Ribfest, even though he works more before the festival than during it.
"We’re not getting rich doing it, but it’s a great time to get the family together, meet all the friends and learn new tricks," he said.
