Lawton church holds rib-off competition

LAWTON, Okla._Don't forget about the good food and BBQ, Memorial Day is often thought of as the unofficial start to grilling season.

St. John's Missionary Baptist Church in northwest Lawton held a rib-off event where a familiar face our very own Erica Kenner was on hand to judge the competition.

“This is an awesome time to have a BBQ which is all-American and to come out and enjoy those freedoms that those who gave it all sacrificed for,” said Kenner.

Eight people competed in the rib-off. The top prize and trophy went to Chris Bridges, who said he used an old family recipe. For winning, Bridges took home exactly what you would expect, a brand new rib master.
