Douglas-Marvin Holtman will go back to Temple Texas with a new gold medal and new title, best of the best.

"I'm overwhelmed and shocked. I couldn't believe it," he says.

His ribs, chicken, and brisket are now the best in the nation even though he had to cook them on his back up grill. Holtman's hoping a new generation of master barbecue chefs will be inspired by his unbelievable win.

"We use a special sauce. First we put the season on. That's what we did last night. We put the season in it, we put it in the bag, and then put it in the cooler. Then we cooked it today," says Sara B's II team leader Jason Hobbs.

Fourteen year old Hobbs and the other members of the Sara B's II team took first place in the Kids-Q cook-off two years ago and second place last year. Now, they are trying to regain their title.

But their chicken and pork chops will have to be better than the sisters of the Baby Bad Girls team, and team captain Summer Crockett is sure she's going to win.

Still the stiffest competition may be that of the reigning champ thirteen year old James Robinson.

"I'm going to win anyway," Robinson says.

He's so confident in his secret blend of seasonings that he says the pros like Holtman better look out.

In addition to the Kids-Q cook-off, amateur chefs competed in a backyard barbecue competition.
