Bad to the bone: Allen wins Big Beef Rib competition

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (July 13) – Mark S. Allen, anchor/reporter for CW31’s “Good Day, Sacramento,” on Thursday easily won the first-ever celebrity invitational Big Beef Rib Eat-Off at the California State Fair.

Allen – decked out in a suit, tie and sunglasses in 99-degree midday heat – consumed a rib in 3:37:90, beating out Fox40 News reporter Andria Borba, Sacramento Bee food and wine writer Chris Macias, News Talk 1530 KFBK sports anchor Pat Walsh and News10 sports anchor Ryan Yamamoto.

Walsh came in a slow second, finally finishing his beef rib about five minutes later than Allen.

News10 reporter Kate Larsen and Big Beef Rib creator Dominic Palmieri emceed the heated competition.

The Big Beef Rib, new to the 2012 California State Fair, is 24 ounces of seasoned prime beef that is seasoned and slow-cooked onto a 17-inch rib bone. (Oh yeaahhh)

It sells for $16.95, available only at Teri’s BBQ on the Coca-Cola Main Promenade.

Congratulations to KD Partak! She won the tickets and the parking pass right here on!! Hope you enjoy your time at the fair! 🙂
