On Saturday, Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q was named Grand Champion of the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest.

Big Bob Gibson's Carolyn McLemore talked about competing in Memphis on Thursday.

“There’s no feeling to explain it,” she said. “It's heart-stopping, because it’s so tough to make the finals here. There’s more than 200 teams competing and a lot of them are really good cooking teams, so when you win, you really win something.”

McLemore continued, "I think it’s the best barbecue contest in the whole world. We don’t have much time to go to other contests, but we never mark Memphis off the list. Every year we come to take it home.”
