The second annual Truckee RibFest held at Citizens Bank Plaza and presented by Switchback PR + Marketing included JAX, Smokeyand#8217;s, Men Welding Fire, Char Pit and the Resort at Squaw Creek Six Peaks Grille competing for the best barbecued ribs. The event drew approximately 500 attendees. After tallying up the votes, the Resort at Squaw Creek Six Peaks Grille was selected for the Peopleand#8217;s Choice award, with Char Pit coming in a close second. The judges chose Six Peaks Grilleand#8217;s ribs for first place, JAX came in second and Men Welding Fire placed third. This is the second year Six Peaks Grille has won both awards.
