Triple P Inaugural BBQ Rib Cook-Off Results!
Eleven teams gathered to compete in our first BBQRib Cook-Off on Sunday, September 29. Despite clouds and drizzle, teams and guests enjoyed the “tail-gate” feel of the event as they mingled and passed from tent to tent. Our Judges cast their votes and declared Farmer Smoked BBQ, from Princeton, IL as our first winner! In a close second, Zino’s from Dixon brought home their first ever cook-off prize; and in third place J & J!
For those guests who took advantage of the $5.00 buy-in to taste each contestant’s ribs and sides (if provided) they cast their votes in three categories – Best Sauce, Most Tender and Best Overall. Zino’s pulled out a Trifecta – taking home prizes for Best Sauce and Best Overall in the People’s Choice and their 2nd Place win by our official Judges! Ring of Fire brought home Most Tender!
We have an album from the days’ events on our Facebook page – be sure to check out all the fun! We also posted an open survey and are looking forward to feedback on our event so we can make modifications for next year’s event!
