No longer chicken, Las Vegas barbecuers to compete at Jack Daniels world championship

For years, Steven Overlay and his competitive barbecue team, the Sin City Smokers, struggled with the chicken. Overlay and his team, which includes his wife and her parents, compete in barbecue contests across the country. Overlay does the cooking. His ribs and pork shoulder always earn high marks; striking a balance of flavors from the apple-wood-chip-smoke, spicy dry rub, sweet sauce and velvety meat. His brisket is solid, with its salt-and-pepper garlic rub and hickory-cherry wood smoke flavors. But when it came to chicken, Overlay couldn’t find that balanced “backyard flavor.”
