Jim Heywood, head judge of the 17th annual Best in the West Rib Cookoff, invited me and Dr. BBQ, Ray Lampe, to be judges at this outdoor event that is held on the streets of Sparks, Nevada, next to the John Ascuaga’s Nugget casino and hotel. The public relations director of the Nugget, Maureen Stokes, has compiled a list of public consumption of the estimated 300,000 people attending the cookoff, including:

  • 75 tons of pork ribs
  • Over 6,500 gallons of beer
  • 200 cases of lemons
  • 35,000 ears of corn
