RENO, NV - The Best-in-the-West Nugget Rib Cookoff at Victorian Square in Sparks is over, and a local company is among the winners.
The judges decided Carson City Barbeque had the best sauce this year.
For best ribs, Desperados from Ohio was tops, and so wins $7500 and a trophy.
Last year's first-place winner, Bone Daddy's, wins People's Choice this year.
Nugget officials say they estimate half-a-million people showed up for this year's event, and they say they think more money was spent this year than last.
