MERIDIANVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - The weekend weather was beautiful for barbecue! The fourth annual Star-B-Que for Kids to Love brought the Meridianville community out.

"Ribs, just ribs, don't mess with chicken... but ribs, just ribs," said Bobby Hanna of the Team 2nd Hand Smoke.

Barbecue season is here, and you can smell the aroma.

"Our speciality today is St. Louis spare ribs, spare ribs with brisket knocked off," said Josh Gray of Casual Q.

The  4th Annual Star-B-Que for Kids to Love brought the backyard BBQ kings to town!

"We do the shade tree ribs & chicken. This year we're trying a drumstick instead of a thigh.  Ribs are a proven success so we stick with the formula," said Corey Baessler of Uncle Redstone.

It's competition, but it's always fun when cooking for the kids.

"We are out here cooking in the Star-B-Q Charity Classic for Kids to Love, hoping to raise alot of money for Kids to Love Foundation," said Bobby White of Woody Anderson Ford.  "We're being judged in chicken and ribs so we like to do chicken legs for the chicken and we like to do St. Louis style ribs. The people's choice -- we do smoked sausage and Henry's cowboy cabbage, it's won three out of four years."

This year's Star-B-Que raised $3,500 for Kids to Love to help meet the immediate needs of foster children right here at home.  To learn more about fostering and adopting, click here.
