Donnellon, Donnellon and Miller at Ribberfest 2018!


Here are some behind the scenes photos of the Smokin’ Irish BBQ team from the Madison Ribberfest last weekend. Terry Donnellon (head cook and fearless leader both in and out of the office) and the team worked very hard during the competition, and while they did not bring home a win, they had fun competing!

It’s that time of year again: the annual Ribberfest BBQ competition in Madison, Indiana

The Smokin’ Irish competition BBQ team will be competing once again this year in the Kansas City Barbeque Society annual Ribberfest BBQ competition held on Saturday August 18th right along the river in downtown Madison, Indiana. The Smokin’ Irish’s is comprised of head cook Terry Donnellon and several teammates, both family and friends, who have an equal passion for smoked meats. The team is headed down to the competition on Friday August 17th and are counting on their Irish luck to bring home a win (or two) this year! They will be competing in all six categories: ribs, chicken, pulled pork, brisket, Anything But, and dessert. This competition has been a tradition for Terry and his team for over 10 years, and throughout those years they have brought home wins in several categories. If you are up for a BBQ adventure this weekend, come to Madison, Indiana and say hi to our team.

May the luck of the Irish be with the team this weekend!
