2016 Gilroy Garli-Que Backyard BBQ Rib Throwdown Winner

In a first-ever battle of backyard BBQers at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, SHOWOFF BBQ from Salinas, CA emerged the winner in the 2016 Gilroy Garli-Que Backyard BBQ Rib Throwdown competition on Sunday, July 31.

SHOWOFF BBQ beat out numerous other amateur BBQ chefs to win over the judges with their smoky, sticky, and (of course) garlicky BBQ ribs. No prize money was awarded in this amateur competition, but SHOWOFF BBQ is proud to take home ultimate backyard bragging rights!
