Joe Henderson, owner of Smokin' Joe's Hog Wild Barbecue, uses an extra wide brush to spread barbecue sauce on his ribs during the first-ever Mercer County Ribfest, Saturday. Henderson said he attends about 15 rib cook-offs each year. A large crowd was on hand for the daylong event in Celina. Winners were not available from the fairgrounds' office at press time this morning.
