The Event

The 2nd Annual RibStock BBQ Competition is a fully sanctioned, four meat, Kansas City Barbeque Society Contest and has been approved as a CBBQA Team of the Year Event.

In addition to the four meat Pro Division contest there is a two meat Backyard Division which is an official KCBS Ancillary Contest.

Classic Rock & Roll, a carnival for the kids and the Heineken Beer Garden highlight the activities for teams and spectators.

The 1st Annual RibStock BBQ Competition drew over 3,500 paid BBQ enthusiasts from all over Northern California and we expect this year to be even bigger. So Bring Your Q On!!!


Friday, September 16, 2011 - Teams from both divisions can arrive starting at 10am

Saturday, September 17, 2011 - Pro Division (KCBS Contest & CBBQA TOY Event) and Backyard Division (KCBS Ancillary Contest)


The 2nd Annual RibStock 2011 is being held at Cameron Park Lake, in Cameron Park, CA. This small Sierra Foothill community is located on the Western Slope of El Dorado County which is famous for the discovery of gold and starting the rush Westward.

Cameron Park Lake Recreation Area offers a comfortable setting for all teams with grassy spaces for setup and lots of shade trees. You’ll enter the Cameron Park Lake Recreational Area from the back gate which will take you through the Cameron Park Air Park. This is a very unique neighborhood where residents ‘drive’ their planes from their homes to/from the runway. SPECIAL NOTE: Be aware that once you make the right turn onto Fairway Drive there may be planes taxiing on the streets. PLEASE PULL OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE STREET AND STOP. Give the planes the right of way. The side and rear views from these planes are extremely limited so assume they cannot see you. We received one complaint last year from a resident pilot who was not given the right of way by one of our participating teams. It was obvious they were a team as they were towing a smoker. Remember we are visitors to this area who have been given access to the back side of Cameron Park Lake by these residents.

It's very easy to get to Cameron Park Lake. From Sacramento it's only 35 miles to the Lake by taking Highway 50 East towards Lake Tahoe. In about 32 miles (you'll pass by Rancho Cordova, Folsom & El Dorado Hills) you'll take the second exit for Cameron Park, Cameron Park Drive. Take a left at the signal light and continue down Cameron Park Drive for 1.5 miles where you'll make a left at the signal onto Oxford Road. Take the first right onto Fairway Drive (remember to watch for the airplanes!) and then the first right onto Western Drive. Take the second left onto Boeing Road and finally the first left onto Baron Court. Drive up and over the hill and you'll come to the gate where a RibStock volunteer will greet you. Please have your parking pass showing on your dash when approaching the gate.

Pro Division - An early bird entry fee of $225 is good until July 17, 2011, after which the fee goes up to $275.

Backyard Division - An early bird entry fee of $75 is good until July 17, 2011, after which the fee goes up to $125.

Included in the fee is electrical power (Teams must bring their own extension cords, recommend 100'), water (Teams must bring their own splitter and hose. Teams with hoses and splitters will be assigned spaces so there is no interuption of water flow.) and a 10'x20' space. A limited number of 10'x30' spaces are available for an additional $50 and a limited number of 10'x40' spaces are available for an additional $100. Requests for larger spaces will be prioritized first by returning teams and then new teams. We’ll go by the receive date of the completed application and payment of the standard fee for a 10’x20’ space. Teams assigned a larger space will be notified on August 1st and required to pay the additional fee by August 26th in order to keep the larger space otherwise it will be offered to the next team in the priority line.

Credit card payments (Visa, Mastercard or Discover) are now being accepted. Call Ed Anhorn at (916) 599-5095 for more information.

It looks like we're going to have the same parking issue as last year. This means all vehicles/trailers not critical to the actual cooking process will need to be parked away from the competition area. Be prepared to sleep in a tent or under your canopy in your cooking area if you want to stay close to your meats.

The Backyard Division

All of your friends tell you that you BBQ the best ribs and chicken. You watch all of the BBQ related TV foodie shows. You've also seen BBQ competitions and wonder how well you would stack up against other people who are just as passionate about BBQ as your are.

Well, it's time to 'throw it down' and see how you can do against other BBQ enthusiasts as the 2nd Annual RibStock BBQ Competition is also holding the 2nd Annual RibStock Backyard Division Competition which is an official KCBS Ancillary Contest with two meats (chicken & ribs). You'll be placed among the Pro Division Teams so you can talk to them and learn ways to make your BBQ even better. Every single Backyard Competitor from RibStock 2010 commented on how approachable the Pro Division Teams were and how much they learned about the Competition BBQ Community.

To make it easier to be 'sanitation safe' the RibStock Contest Organizer will provide three 18"x24" disposable cutting boards to each Backyard Team. Give Ed Anhorn a call at (916) 599-5095 or email him at ed@addictedtorub.com to find out how easy it is to start your team and step into the fun & exciting world of Competition BBQ.
