Alan and Denette Webber, who live north of Craig, and their barbecue team, Webber’s Old West BBQ, won an array of awards and ribbons Saturday at the Colorado Pork and Hops Challenge in Grand Junction, including first place in brisket and grand champion overall. The trophy, center, was crafted by a Grand Junction-area welder and is made out of spoons.

When award time came around Saturday at the Colorado Pork and Hops Challenge in Grand Junction, Alan Webber had no idea what was coming. Alan and his wife, Denette, who live north of Craig, had been barbecuing competitively for five years. The couple — along with Alan’s brother and sister, Brian and Donna Webber — make up Webber’s Old West BBQ, a team that hadn’t been able to break into the top 10 at competitions.
