Fired up for barbecue
St. Charles contest to train cooks and judges for July event
ST. CHARLES – Spring finally has arrived, and as the weather warms across the St. Charles area, people are getting fired up about barbecue.
One reason for the fervor is the anticipation of the city’s newest festival addition,
Firin’ Up the Fox, a barbecue cooking competition that entered the summer festival season in 2012, as a side dish to the 30th anniversary of Riverfest. This year, Firin’ Up the Fox becomes the featured entrée on its own weekend, July 5-7, at the Charlestowne Mall in St. Charles, and organizers are doing what they can to prepare.
In April, Chris Marks, a nationally recognized barbecue pitmaster and general manager for Ace of Hearts BBQ of Kansas City, brought his expertise to the table, teaching people from across the Tri-Cities and beyond in BBQ 101 and BBQ 102.
