This past Saturday twelve (12) rib teams competed for the titles of Best Ribs and People’s Choice at the United Way Kick Off & Rib Cook Off! Six past winning teams where in the line up and all fired up their grills by 6am on Aug. 5th to provide mouth watering ribs to the attending public at Good Times of Olean. After hours of tasty enjoyment…the winners were unveiled! Taking the title for Best Ribs…and last year’s 2nd place runner up…was Team Mann! This fun-loving, family oriented team took home a trophy created and donated by Pierce Steel of Olean. They also won a one-of-a-kind fire pit; also created and donated by Pierce Steel of Olean. The People’s Choice award was presented to a great group of folks who have also been in past competitions…and won! The coveted “Ziggy” piggy trophy went home with Beer & Bones!
