2013 Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off
The Sparks NV (Reno) rib cook-off is the place to be for BBQ lovers. 2013 marked the 25th annual Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off.
Hosted by John Ascuga’s Nugget, the Labor Day weekend event on Victorian Square featured lots of BBQ and related food along with a craft fair plus free admission, entertainment and parking.
Cookers from near and far —as far as Sydney, Australia — come each year to compete for cash prizes and to be declared the years best provider of ribs and/or sauce.
In 2013 barbeque smoke from 20+ competitors overpowered lingering odors of the smoke drifting into the area from California forest fires.
Families large and small enjoyed a slightly less crowded event, redesigned for better foot traffic. There also seemed to be more seating than past years with picnic tables in multiple locations.

BBQ ribs are the main attraction.
The smell of pork ribs, often slathered with sauce, cooking on open grills permeates the air at the cook-off.
Each cooker strives to provide a unique flavor that will make their ribs stand out.
