Many hit the bricks for Prime Rib Sandwich Feed

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. -- "It's probably the best piece of meat you'll get," Rob Star, President of the Lincoln County Cattlemen's Association, said.

The Lincoln County Cattlemen's Association cooked up around 1,900 lbs. of prime rib for the annual NEBRASKAland DAYS Prime Rib Sandwich Feed.

"We've used a smoker for the last four years to prepare the prime rib, and it's made it a little easier on the cooking side of things," Star explained.

Last year, around 2,200 people attended, and the year before that, Star said there were 2,400 people who stopped by.

On Tuesday night, many hit the bricks on Bailey for some of Nebraska's finest. "It's been smoking since 6 o'clock last night: it's probably better than what you can get at a lot of restaurants," Star said.

Condiments like barbecue sauce are available, but Star said they encourage everyone to try the sandwich without it.

The event is a way to promote the Lincoln County Cattlemen's Association. "We try to give them a good experience, get a good meal for 10 dollars -- a prime rib sandwich, a drink, chips and some slaw," Star said.

Organizers said, it's a night you don't want to miss out on.

"We kind of hope you sit, and enjoy yourself, and don't get in too much of a hurry. We also have a drive-thru every year for those who don't want to come out and come through the heat," Star said.
