Best In the West Rib Cookoff at the Nugget Casino in Sparks, Nevada

Here Rob Stately and me are with John Ascuaga the owner of the Nugget Casino. Rob Stately, one of the hardest working pitmasters around. When you feed thousands every day out of a tent, there is no sleep and long hours... I am proud to have Rob & his Award Winning National Traveling Competition Rib Team representing the Best Barbecue Company in America - Famous Dave's! This is one of the largest Rib Cookoffs in America over the Labor Day Weekend with over 500,000 people in attendance and plenty of Butt Rockin' Music, Cold Beer, and the Best BBQ in America! We competed against the best award winning rib cookers in America and this win proves that we are the real deal. This is one HUGE Trophy!
