The restaurant’s pulled pork emerged victorious against eight competitors during the Aug. 2 taste-off and earned Hickory River owners Brad and Krista Bowman a $1,000 top prize, a silver plate, and a banner to display.
The Bowmans had never entered a food competition until the 2008 Ohio State Fair, where they also won the pulled-pork competition, and returned in 2009 to successfully defend their title in the competition.
In a news release, the Bowmans said they plan to return in 2011 to defend their crown.
