Mississauga Rotary Ribfest

The Mississauga Rotary Ribfest is on this weekend, with lots of different Ribbers, and with more non-meat selections (other than Bob's Blooming Onions). There was grilled corn; one stand selling churros (Spanish fried sweets); another selling Indian vegetarian; and another selling juices.

For me, ribfests are all about the pulled pork. This year, I decided to try Gator BBQ, from Michigan, their pulled pork looked how I like it, tender (some places seem to make them crispy). I bought the 1 pound pulled pork for $10, which doesn't come with a bun (that'd be a heck of a sandwich!); it's probably good for 3 to 4 meals (as opposed to the regular pulled pork sandwich; $7 and good for one meal). Tasty. We also got half a chicken, which was tender and juicy.

One interesting and tasty thing we found and bought, was crinkly-cut sweet potato fries, $6. Excellent!

Natrel was there, handing out free small 2% milk cartons. And Kraft was there, handing out samples of their new crackers.
