The Saturday, Sept. 17, event has always had a way of leaving visitors wanting more with its live music, medallion hunt, games, activities and, of course, the barbecue.

Though all who attend are winners, there are some who won more than others, including the three brothers who found this year's medallion.

In addition, five different groups were declared winners of the annual Smokin' Hot BBQ event in various categories. The first place prize went to Bailey's Acres, with Brad & Bryan's Que taking second and Tipsy Smoker coming in third.

VIP attendees who bought tickets also selected their own winner - Smoke Addiction BBQ. General festival-goers named American Piggers, a returning favorite, as winners of People's Choice.
