On Saturday, at the corner of 3rd and Walnut in Yankton, there were 12 teams in a very heated competition. Amateur cooks were cooking low and slow to tickle some taste buds.
Two trophies were up for grabs. Yankton Rib Fest Champion, decided by a panel of judges, and People’s Choice, chosen by the hungry crowd.

Dean Washburn, of USMC (Uncle Sam’s Misguided Cooks), joined the Marines with his brother-in-law, and loved receiving the People’s Choice Award….
