CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Bragging rights were on the line at this year's barbecue festival in Cape Girardeau on Saturday, August 20.

Some of the best pit-masters in the area slaved over briskets, ribs and butts to try and claim first place prize of $2,500.

The big prize went to Oklahoma Joe for his "Serious Que."

But grilling wasn't the only thing going on today.

The event even came with live music.

And also every year the event benefits the Jaycees Toy Box to provide toys to children at Christmas.

They have hosted the event for 24 consecutive years.
