4th Annual Butts to Broadway Winners Announced
Our fourth Annual Butts to Broadway Pork Butt Competition took place on Saturday, June 24th from 5-8pm. The competition had 11 competitors who competed for the People’s Choice Award and the coveted Grand Champion. Both the Grand Champion and the People’s Choice Winners for 2016 were back with hopes to reclaim their title! This year, the judging was revamped in order to mimic Kansas City Barbecue Competitions. Each competitor was judged by a blind taste test on their pulled pork barbecue and ribs. There was a winner for each the best pulled pork and the best ribs. The Grand Champion was determined by average the scores from the pulled pork and ribs category. The People’s Choice Award was voted on by each person who bought an individual tasting ticket.
The winners for the 2017 Butts to Broadway are:
Best Pork: M and M BBQ
Best Ribs: Parr’s BBQ
People’s Choice: BYOButt
Grand Champion: BYOButt
