Mike Bowar and his 13-strong Famous Dave's B-B-Q team from Plymouth, Minnesota, took first place at the event and also was selected as the People's Choice winner. They won that at the Sparks
event two years ago.
Bowar began as a line cook when he was 15 and has been traveling the nation for the last four summers to attend rib-cooking events.
His team took home the first-place trophy, the People's Choice Award and 75-hundred dollars in prize money.
Second went to Desperado's B-B-Q and Rib Company of Hinckley, Ohio, and Maui Wowie B-B-Q or Reno was third.
