Two and a half tons of Tri-Tip might just be enough for this Sunday’s big Asphalt Cowboys Community Barbecue. The 65th annual barbecue in Lake Redding Park is a major fundraiser for the yellow-shirted cowboys. They use the money for a variety of community needs. The event runs from 11AM to 6PM this Sunday. $8 gets a plate of Tri-Tip or chicken along with cole slaw, garlic bread and the famous cowboys beans. Advance tickets are $7 and available at LuLu’s, Paint Mart or the Redding Chamber of Commerce. Diners can eat there or take it to go. There are reasons to stay, including live entertainment and an auction of some great items including a Silverthorn Resort houseboat vacation.
