Ridgemont Subcontractor Appreciation BBQ Cook Off

It is that time of year again, the annual Ridgemont Subcontractor Appreciation BBQ Cook Off!

“At Ridgemont Subcontractor relationships are just as important as our relationships with owners or our clients. They are an essential part of the Ridgemont team,” Dennis Mason, Ridgemont Vice President of Field Operations/Principal.


A day filled with food, friends and more, the Subcontractor Appreciation BBQ is a time to celebrate Ridgemont’s talented team of subcontractors. Each year a collection of Ridgemont’s subcontractors gather together to enjoy some great BBQ cooked up by our field staff.

This year we changed things up a bit by having a cook off competition with the following categories:

  • Best Bloody Mary

  • Best Appetizer

  • Best Meat Entree

  • Best Dessert

Each team had the opportunity to create a dish for each category, which was then scored on a 1-10 scale based on presentation, appeal, flavor and creativity. The submission with the overall highest score was named the winner of that category. And, the team with the overall highest scores in multiple categories was named Grand Champion.

“The event was first class just like everything else that we get to be a part of with Ridgemont.  When we received the invitation to come to the cook off we knew immediately that we wanted to participate.  It was great to catch up with our Ridgemont team in such a fun and relaxed environment.  We are looking forward to defending our championship title next year”, Kris Phillips, Wildstone Construction Marketing Director.

  • Best Bloody Mary - Kent Concrete
