brantwood fourth annual rib cook off logo Fourth annual rib cookoff to benefit BrantwoodIt’s time again to fire up the grills and determine who cooks the best ribs in Montgomery, as Eastside Grille hosts the 4th Annual Rib Cook-Off. The annual event benefits Brantwood Children’s Home, which for more than 91 years has served Montgomery and the surrounding community, providing a home in a loving family environment for young people displaced by abuse, neglect or other traumatic situations within their own families. The event is set for Thursday, Aug. 6, from 5-7 p.m. Eastside Grille is located at 6667 Atlanta Highway, in the WalMart shopping center.

The event will “pit” local amateur barbecue grillers, who will compete against each other for the title of “Montgomery’s Best Ribs.” Judges are selected from the crowd that gathers to enjoy the food and fellowship. For the past several years, local business owner Ronnie Waters has held the crown as best rib-maker in the River Region. Can he be unseated this year? Contestants should contact Carla Elston at Brantwood Children’s Home no later than Friday, July 24, to register. Anyone willing to put their grill skills and secret sauces to the test is eligible to enter. Call Carla at 334-265-0784.

To attend and possibly participate as a judge, tickets are $50 each, available for purchase at Eastside Grille and Brantwood Children’s Home. Each ticket entitles the bearer to two (2) plates of ribs, and includes side dishes. Ticket holders also may register to win a pair of Auburn or Alabama season football tickets. The drawing will take place around 6 p.m. (The winner does not need to be present to win.)

Brantwood serves children and youth ages 10-21 and offers support through a variety of programs to help these youngsters cope and succeed in society. Children attend local schools and receive counseling, health care and educational assistance at Brantwood. There also is a program for older youths to help them transition from Brantwood into the community as adults.

“Montgomery is very fortunate to have a facility like Brantwood,” said Tom Methvin, Chairman of the Board of Directors for Brantwood. “And it’s something that’s very special to me. Working with these kids, seeing the difference a place like Brantwood can make in their lives, it’s very rewarding. How could you not want to make their lives better?”
