    I had no idea that Cowboy Mouth was still together. I would consider going only if they promised to play Jenny Says at least 3 times.

    Rib America is the single biggest rip-off in the history of mankind.

    I'd have to closely agree. I did go 2 years ago when you could get in the door free to watch some of the shows but otherwise its expensive.

    Never heard of this event, but it looks like the tickets are $5--what am I missing? I would gladly pay $30+ for Cowboy Mouth alone.

    Re: Rib America

    Go to Johnston. I am a BBQ fiend, and I am enamored with the concept of large scale BBQ & Music Festival. But I have never been ****** off about something more than Rib America, I am making it my personal crusade to spare everyone the pain I endured.

    The BBQ is crap. It's the same "teams" every year. When I went two years ago, the hands down best BBQ there was Famous Dave's. Which you can get at two convenient locations in the Des Moines metropolitan area, and not pay $9 for a three-rib "sampler" after paying $5 to get in.

    I don't mind paying money at events, I know they will always be expensive but this was a little more than that. I know 2 years ago it was 7 tickets for $10. Beer was 4 tickets apiece. A lot of the Rib meals were 10-12 tickets. Just kind of a pain to do all of that. You'll go home with tickets left over, while they keep the money.

    If you're going for the concert enjoy! At least you've been forewarned.

    They use "tickets" that are not pegged at one to one. The first year I went it was $10 for 7 tickets. This year it's $5 for 4 tickets / $10 for 8 tickets. Hot Dog, 5 tickets! I'm not paying $7 for a hot dog, or $9 for three ribs.

    So it's like BBQ Roundup in CR during Freedom Festival (which we still go to because there aren't many decent BBQ places in CR).

    Went two years ago and it was great food and entertianment. Went last year and they had jacked up the prices and served re-heated BBQ. I will be skipping this year. Rip-Off
