Representing Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada, 24 teams competed for $7,500 in prize money Friday and Saturday in the "Smokin' Good Time" Kansas City Barbecue Society sanctioned state championships in Prescott Valley.

The event outside Tim's Toyota Center was a fundraiser for the Coalition for Compassion and Justice.

Not all teams entered all categories, which included pork, pork ribs, chicken, dessert, salsa, chili, and brisket over the two-day competition.

In the four judged events - chicken, ribs, pork and brisket - overall winner was Bad Boyz BBQ from Surprise, Ariz., and reserve champion was Ranch 13 BBQ from Gilbert.

Robert Ensley, owner of a tire shop, and Victor Barnard, a butcher for Smith's grocery, entered as Vic's BBQ out of Ft. Mohave/Bullhead City. They've competed in several local competitions, but this was their fourth official venture, Ensley said.

It was successful for them, as they placed first in pork shoulder, second in brisket and ninth overall.

"Vic started cooking barbecue 20 years ago," Ensley said.

"I had to," Barnard said with a grin. "I was a single dad then and on the weekend I cooked meals for the whole week."

"The teams were extremely happy with the event, and we hope to grow 'A Smokin' Good Time' to become a fall signature event for the Coalition for Compassion and Justice," executive director Gail Kenny said.
