When it comes barbecue sauce, not many people can do it better than Jim Clayton of Elizabethtown, owner of Texas Outlaw BBQ.
Clayton finished second to Famous Dave’s BBQ of Plymouth, Minn., in last weekend’s 2013 Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off in Sparks, Nev. In all, 24 barbecue teams competed.
Clayton said his goal when competing is to “have all the flavors complement one another.”
“That is what you cook for,” he said.
