[May 01, 2014]  ATLANTA — The Palms Grill Café, featuring Fat Boy's BBQ, invites all amateur cooks to join in the fun at the Rt. 66 Ribs & Rides Cruise-In on June 14. The cook-off is designed to be fun for nonprofessionals. Following are the guidelines:

There will be categories for chicken and pork ribs, with awards given for people's choice, best setup, best chicken and best ribs.

There is a $50 entry fee. The Palms Grill Café provides meat — one box of chicken and one box of ribs — to each entrant. Each entrant will be provided a 10-by-10-foot area in which to set up. All entrants must attend a 7:30 a.m. meeting in the backroom of the Palms Grill Café.

Blind judging will be conducted per Kansas City BBQ Society guidelines.

Those who would like to participate are asked to register by June 11; call 217-415-1101.

The cruise-in itself is a free event from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. along Route 66 in downtown Atlanta. For a $10 donation, the public will be able to taste samples, starting at 1 p.m., and vote for the people's choice.

While in Atlanta, visitors are encouraged to stop at the Palms Grill Café for a piece of blue-ribbon homemade pie, tour the J. H. Hawes Grain Elevator Museum, get their pictures taken with the Bunyon Giant, pick up a Route 66 souvenir at the Gunnar Mast Trading Post, have a cheeseburger at Chubby's, visit the Atlanta Museum, enjoy a cold one at The Korner, buy some homemade candy or a one-of-a-kind item at the Arch Street Artisans shop, then stroll around and see all the assembled cruise-in cars.
