Great food, refreshing drinks, mingling and dancing were the order of the night. The season known for its heat just got a little hotter last Friday at the Summer Barbecue edition of Rib, Roast, Rum and More. Knott Francis Eventures pulled out all the stops in making their barbecue haven one to remember.

Food lovers made their way to the Grilling Pit on Argyle Road to get a taste of all things savoury, with a touch of sweetness in the mix.

So without further ado, let's take you on an enticing all-you-can-eat buffet tour. The Sip section offered a choice of pumpkin beef, country-style vegetable or crayfish and corn soup. While Off the Border had a delectable display of red herring dip, mango cilantro escoveitched fish, crispy spray and barbecued crayfish.

Not a fish fan? Step right across to the Farm Yard for curried goat and roti; KFE signature jerked chicken; Appleton pepper jelly chicken; buffalo chicken neck; barbecued gizzard with bread or mini buttered dumplings.

Then slide on over to the Slider Bar for Italian, Kielbasa and Chorizo hot dogs, all of the pork persuasion, along with beef sliders. The ribs represented in true scrumptious fashion in the Oink Oink section, with an option of Scotch bonnet jerked ribs with a roast corn feta salsa and Appleton barbecued ribs. Spit roasted pig stuffed with plantain and raisins as well as honey barbecued pig's tail had many returning for more.

Sounds mouth-watering, doesn't it? There's more! The talk of the town was the Jahtalian section, an inviting Jamaican and Italian fusion of pasta and lasagne dishes such as Alfredo or smokey chipotle penne pasta served with barbecued pulled pork or chicken meatballs, veggie mince lasagne and beef lasagne.

The sweeter side of life was unleashed by Devon House Bakery, which presented a wide array of pastries. Kremi cooled it down with a variety of ice cream flavours.

So, with a fully stocked inclusive bar and music guaranteed to have you working up a sweat, what more could anyone ask for?

The event definitely sent summer off with a flavourful bang! In case you weren't able to make it and don't want to ever miss another edition of the highly anticipated foodie event, follow them on Facebook and Instagram @ribroastrum for more information.
