Braggin' rights are on the line as the the Hannibal Knights of Columbus Council 907 hosts a Backyard BBQ Rib Contest Saturday, September 13.

The K of C is providing some 450 pounds of ribs for about a dozen different teams of chefs, all armed with what they're all sure is the best barbeque ribs recipe in the universe.

Admission to the competition is $12 for adults, $5 for kids 10 and under. That will get you all the ribs, coleslaw, fried potatoes and other refreshments you'd care for.

There will be judges on hand to decide whose ribs are the best. Plus, those who come just to eat will get a chance to vote for their favorites, as well.

Proceeds from the day will go toward the many causes the Knights of Columbus has been assisting for many years.

The contest begins at 3 p.m. at the K of C grounds off Munger Lane in Hannibal.
