Finding the best ribs in northcentral Wisconsin
WAUSAU - A lot of barbecue chefs think they make the best ribs in the country. To find out who's barbecue is above the rest, a group of judges tasted lots of ribs at Rib Fest in Wausau.

Each chef had to submit their best ribs and sauce for judging. The judges didn't know who's ribs the were eating to keep the competition fair. Each rack of ribs was judges on color, tenderness, and flavor. Some of the judges were excited to taste all of the different ribs.

"I like judging the ribs. The ribs tasted really good. I like that I got the best ribs from all of the places," said Aiden Rasmussen, one of the judges.

The judges had a hard time picking the winner. That's because each chef has won many different awards for their ribs. Some of the judges had to decide which one was their favorite based on the sauce.

"It [had] a lot of meat on the bone but it was just really meaty. The sauce wasn't as sweet," said Rasmussen.

Many of the chefs will be back again next year to try to win the title of best ribs in Wausau.
