FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- There wasn't as big of a rush to get into the Fort Wayne Ribfest on Friday, but that didn't stop Geffrey Griffin from having his team at Griffin's Barbeque ready and firing on all cylinders.
"We're known for ribs, chicken and polish (sausage) that's really excellent," he says.
Griffin is back in Fort Wayne after spending time in Maryland.
He was showcasing some hardware from years past that he won for his meats and sauces.
"This is the third or fourth season, we haven't done it in about eight years," says Griffin.
He was hoping to enter in for a taste at some more trophies, but the Covid-19 pandemic canceled those plans.
Organizers with the Ribfest deciding to go on with the festival but cutting it down from four days to two, and cutting much of its normal programming out.
"We really believe anyone that comes can sit in their own pod and have a god time," says Mark Chappuis, who helped put on the festival. "I don't think we're going to have a problem with social distancing."
