Realtors, supporters gather for annual Rib Cookoff


Things got juicy and pretty thick as the competition got underway during the annual Rib Cookoff hosted by the Merced County Association of Realtors at its main office in Merced.

Stalwart teams went up against some newcomers, but in the end, it was all about good times and raising money for the Realtors’ back-to-school backpack drive to benefit young school students in the area.

Eleven teams were vying for the coveted 1st Place trophy, and three of them went to a final round where the decision was extremely tough for the panel of celebrity judges: Adam Gray (former State Assemblyman), Danny Ambriz (Atwater City Council), Sarah Boyle (Merced City Council), and Mark Hendrickson (Merced County Administration).

It was the American Realty team out of Atwater, led by master chef Brian Raymond, that won in the end.
