People's Choice

First Bank and Trust took home this year's People's Choice award from United Way's Barbecue Showdown.

The second annual United Way Barbecue Showdown event in Duncan’s own Fuqua Park brought in 10 teams who sizzled and smoked their way through two days to feed a crowd full after judges announced the winners.

This year’s competition, hosted Sept. 7, accepted entries for brisket, pork butt, pork ribs, chicken thighs, beans and sides and ice cream and desserts. The goal of the barbecue showdown was simple: to get the audience involved and learning about United Way of Stephens County’s 14 nonprofit organizations.

The nonprofit organizations set up booths and kiosks to sell drinks, desserts and more while educating the public about what they provide to the community.

Winners of the event included:




• First: The Motley Few
