CONTEST RULES: All 4 team members must be checked in 15 minutes prior to start of contest. Each team will compete against all other teams. The object is to eat all of the allotted ribs in the quickest amount of time. Rib bones must be reasonably cleaned of all meat. Judges will decide what is “reasonable” and their decisions will be final and uncontestable. Contestants must not touch any ribs until the starting signal. Vomiting during the contest will disqualify the member of the team and not the entire team. The first team to eat their entire bucket of ribs to the approval of on-site judges will be considered the 1st place finishers.
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS: Must be 18 years or older. Must have a team of four.
