NUCA North Texas held its 1st BBQ Cookoff at Ritchie Bros. Fort Worth this June and a new tradition was born. Teams were present at sunrise to set-up and began cooking their ribs, brisket, and sides. The competing teams were: Vermeer Texas-Louisiana, Frost, IBTX, Zimmerer Kubota, Standard Utility Construction, Inc., T-K-O Equipment, Ritchie Bros., Trinity Utilities & Boring, and U.S. Shoring. At 5pm the judging. As guests arrived, each was given a wooden nickel for people’s choice and volunteer judges stepped up to the task. Judges were sent upstairs where rules were explained and judging began for 2 categories; brisket and ribs.
Songbird Jones, provided a great ambiance for guests as they strolled by each team’s tent tasting what they had to offer before voting with their nickels. At 8pm announcements were made for winners: 1st place brisket (T-K-O Equipment), 1st place ribs (U.S. Shoring). Winner of people’s choice was tied between U.S. Shoring and Trinity Utilities.
Big thanks to our Sponsors: U.S. Shoring, Buyers Barricades, Ritchie Bros., and Bitco Insurance. With everyone’s help, this was definitely an event with food worth fighting for and a great beginning for a new tradition.
