Brag-N-Bones earns bragging rights

Richard Wade has been a regular at the annual Eastpoint Rib Cook-off for 19 of the past 21 years.

Saturday was a first for Dan Harper and Ronnie Maxwell. 

When the judges decided whose ribs were the most tasty and succulent Saturday afternoon,  it was their grilling creations that emerged victorious.

In a close contest among all four of the top finishers, Wade’s Brag-N-Bones won top prize, and $1,000, while Harper and Maxwell’s Locked Out BBQ was second, pocketing $750.

John Solomon, who had served as a mentor to the Lock Out squad ever since they began competing in the annual January Butts-N-Clucks event, earned a third-place finish, and $500, for his 10-4 BBQ team.

A team from Andersonville, Georgia, Double D Smokers, earned Honorable Mention, and a $250 prize. After tying with Ira Kelly’s Bayside Porkers, from the neighboring city, of Ellaville, Georgia, the team of Andy and Charlene Dickens took fourth place honors due to a  tie-breaker based on the higher number of number one votes.

In addition to winning third place, the 10-4 BBQ team won People’s Choice, for raising $1,242 for the Eastpoint Volunteer Fire Department, as well as Best Rig.
