Joey Chestnut continues his six-month streak, having never been defeated by an American eater in that time. The Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off, hosted by John Ascuaga's Nugget Casino Hotel, set the perfect stage for the final rib contest of the summer. The winner of last year's Cook-Off, Butch's Lip Smackin' BBQ, provided the ribs for the contest. They proved to be quite a challenge for all of the gurgitators, but they asserted themselves as athletes once again.
