Family Cookbook Project Co-Founder, Chip Lowell took third place in the BBQ Competition at the RVA R.I.M.B.Y Festival (Right In My Back Yard) in Richmond, Virginia. This is the second year in a row that Chip has been recognized for his outstanding BBQ.
This festival is about Building Community and Encouraging Adventure and benefited Beyond Boundaries, a Richmond-based non-profit specializing in guiding participants with disabilities on outdoor adventures. While this year’s festival was canceled because of the pandemic, the BBQ competition went on with the judges traveling to the participants’ homes to be wowed by the outstanding BBQ of the competitors.
The BBQ Competition featured North Carolina style pulled pork. Chip fired-up his large Green Egg smoker and slow cooked his Boston Butt to perfection. He also added Memphis style glazed spareribs and Mexican street corn to complete his entry.
The judges awarded Chip third place overall for his efforts and he is already looking forward to competing again next year.
