Best In The West BBQ: Nugget Rib Cook Off 2012

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….


It was a hard decision for us newbies trying to figure out which of these BBQ vendors to try. They all looked and smelled amazing. It all came down to what everyone was craving. Even though we went for the ribs, we ended up getting BBQ Sandwiches, BBQ Nachos, Cole Slaw and Beans.

We enjoyed some fantastic foods and some really great sauces!
