This past week was the Rib Cook Off at Victorian Square in Sparks, Nevada. We’ve never been to the cook off before and thought it sounded like a lot of fun and a chance to have some really good BBQ. So we headed up on Saturday. The drive up highway 80 was what we expected for a 3-day holiday weekend…busy.
Parking at the Nugget was a bit challenging if you didn’t arrive early. The traffic was understandably heavy and roads were blocked off. The signs for all the parking lots were full. After driving around for 10 minutes, we were lucky enough to find a parking space, parked and went in search of RIBS! We didn’t have to go very far.
On the street we’re immediately overwhelmed with smoke from all the barbecues. Ahhh….we breathed deeply and enjoyed the smells. Of course in order to get to those great smells, we had to take a journey through a few rows of vendors.
Just look at those BBQ turkey drums we found….
