Moffat County Fair’s AmeriGas Barbecue Cook-Off crowns champs from Craig, Steamboat Springs
The inaugural AmeriGas Barbecue Cook-Off featured two Northwest Colorado teams cooking up a storm Saturday at the Moffat County Fairgrounds.
Smokin’ J’s BBQ was the Overall Grand Champions, taking home a $450 payout, as well as Judge’s Choice trophies in chicken, ribs and pork. The Steamboat Springs-based team also received Reserve Overall People’s Choice and People’s Choice for chicken.
Craig’s Ly, Steel ‘n Smoke won the People’s Choice Overall Grand Champion, as well as People’s Choice in ribs, brisket, and pork. They were also the Judge’s Choice winners in brisket.
The group donated its $225 winnings as Reserve Overall Grand Champion back to organizers for next year’s competition, for which AmeriGas representative Vickie Runnion said she is grateful.
“We would also like to thank all those who helped keep everything running and the Judges who did such a great job,” she said. “Also, thank you to everyone who stopped by and voted for the People’s Choice. We look forward to seeing all of you next year.”
7:00 a.m. Near the intersection of First Street and U.S. Highway 40, police in Craig responded to a property damage crash call. Officers investigated an accident between two pickup trucks.
