Riscky’s Barbeque is hosting its 11th annual rib-eating contest on July 22, coinciding with the Fort Worth Stockyards' celebration of the National Day of the American Cowboy.

For the challenge, 20 barbeque lovers will attempt to eat as many Riscky’s beef ribs as possible in 60 seconds. The top qualifiers will then go head-to-head for a grand prize valued at $500, a second place prize valued at $250, and a third place prize valued at $100.

The National Day of the American Cowboy event in Fort Worth was voted the “Best Cowboy Tribute Event” in the U.S. by American Cowboy Magazine and has become an annual staple in the Fort Worth Stockyards. The event provides more than 10,000 attendees with the opportunity to celebrate the history and heritage of the American Cowboy, with family-friendly activities taking place all day including the World Championship Hay Stacking Contest, the Cowboy Celebration Parade, cow milking, watermelon eating, seed-spitting, cow chip throwing, tip-to-tip guessing and much more.
