    Is anyone here "big time" enough to be invited to the Nugget Best in the West rib cook-off in Sparks, Nevada over Labor Day? That's local for me, and while I'll probably go anyway, it would be neat to see a SMF member there!

    I'm am tentative planning on going. I have heard about this event for a few years now, living in Sacramento area it's only 3 hours so not a long drive.
    I'm just hope the Q ribs are as good as advertised.

    Butch has some great ribs. Famous daves has great cornbread. We will be there with bells on = )
     
  6. I get invited every year. Sadly, noot to cook ribs but as a Nugget VIP. Ill be happily enjoying ribs and sucking down brews on the opening day of the festivities as a guest of the hotel again this year. I usually show up on the other days as well just to eat ribs and drink beer. Its truly one of the great events of the year here in the Reno-Tahoe area.
     
  7. From Sacramento its a 2 hour drive at the most. I just made the drive today for about the 10th time this month. You definitely need to make your way up for the rib cookoff. Its an awesome event.

    Its seems like 3 hours if you didn't do well at the tables in Reno..
    I don't usually go to Reno, I like S. and N. lake Tahoe. Last time I went to Reno was for Hot August Nights like 3 or 4 years ago. Most the time I go there for poker tournaments.
