The owners of Smokey D’s restaurant in Des Moines were named the Grand Champion of the World Series of barbecue in Kansas City this weekend.

Darren and Sherry Warth have been competing and winning ribbons at the contest for a decade. But this was the first time they’ve ever claimed the overall title.

They beat out over 500 other competitors to claim a winning check of $12,500.

The win gives them automatic entry into the World Barbecue Championship in Tennessee next year.
