Leduc #1 rib cook-off coming soon

The ever-popular Annual Rib Cook-off at Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre is scheduled for Sunday August 9.

The ever-popular Annual Rib Cook-off at Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre is scheduled for Sunday August 9, from Noon to 4 p.m. Last year, 12 teams prepped and cooked delicious ribs with creative recipes, vying for the top honours while a new category had both teams and guests excited: the “master griller” category welcomed creative BBQ options that excluded ribs.

That is good news for annual and first-time attendees alike who look forward to visiting the museum (at a discounted fee), discovering its new and improved displays and enjoying a few hours of fun activities. The event is geared for the entire family, with children’s activities, musical entertainment on the stage and fascinating live rig demos where guests are allowed on the rig floor –after donning a hard hat of course!

Cheryl Lawrence, Leduc #1’s executive director reminds us that the centre is maintained by a dynamic group of loyal volunteers; with the support of many oil and gas industry corporations, Leduc #1 constantly upgrades its displays and gratefully accepts new ones, each year. The outdoor displays offer great information for oil and gas workers wishing to share the industry’s history and intricate workings with friends and family members. The outdoor property offers numerous fascinating and colourful displays, such as the cable tool rig and the giant oilfield truck tire, a favourite for photo opps.

Rib cook-off teams purchase, prepare, cook and serve about 125 lbs of meat each; the ticket sales represent a critical fundraiser for the centre. In the past years, the event was so well-attended that all ribs were sold out by 3 p.m. This year, despite the economic downturn, six teams have already signed up; there is room for another four or six teams to join them. To register a team, call 780-987-4323.

So come all, come early, a great time will be had by all at Leduc #1’s Annual Rib Cook-off, on Highway 60 just South of Hwy.19, Sunday August 9th noon-4pm. Bring your appetite!
