Eight competitors battled it out at the Meadowlands Racetrack’s fourth annual BBQ Battle on Saturday, July 13.

All were vying for $2,000 in prizes and bragging rights.

The BBQ categories were for best ribs, brisket, chicken, and pulled pork, with a $500 prize to the winner of each category. A panel of five judges conducted a blind tasting for each tasting round. Each entry was judged on taste (1-15 points), tenderness (1-10 points) and appearance (1-5 points).

Doreen Rinaldo, known as Dr. Dor’s BBQ, took home an award for the fourth consecutive year, winning $500 for best BBQ chicken. Rinaldo has created her own line of BBQ dry rubs, which are available for purchase at drdorsbbq.com.

Gentle Giant Brewing Company’s Matt Worgul took home the $500 top prize for his outstanding ribs.

First-time competitor Michael Nurse of Magic Mike’s Smoked Meats won for the best pulled pork and best brisket categories, earning $1,000.
