Local Company Among Rib Cookoff Winners

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.
