Held the Labor Day Weekend on the grounds of John Ascuaga's Nugget's and Victorian Square (in the city of Sparks, NV) is the annual Best of the West Nugget Cook-Off. It's time to break out the bibs and napkins and prepare to meet your rib makers!!! It's an awesome experience and the food is outstanding.

We stopped by the B. J.'s Barbeque stand (a local competitor) and tried the Big Ass Boat selection (french fries topped with cheddar cheese and a huge mound of slow cooked bbq pork) was so good and I would highly recommend visiting this establishment if you ever venture to Sparks, NV.

Address: 1100 Nugget Avenue
Directions: Located off I-80 and Nugget Avenue directly across from Victorian Square.
Phone: (775) 356-3300
