The Prince George’s County fire and police departments went head to head Oct. 5 in the Second Annual Public Safety BBQ Cook-Off. Television Top Chef Timothy Dean was among a panel of five judges that awarded Team PGFD and their BBQ ribs the championship with a vote of 4 to 1. Team PGFD also won the public's popular vote by a fairly wide margin, according to fire department spokesman Mark Brady.

The police won top honors in 2012.

Team PGFD head chef was Kirk Ingram, a volunteer chief officer from the District Heights Fire/EMS Station. Other team members included career firefighters Robert Aycock, Rodney Cole and Doug Sudik. Dozens of civilian career and volunteer members of the Fire/EMS Department showed up to cheer their team.

The event was held in conjunction with a Community Expo at the Boulevard at Capital Centre. Each team received $240 at the conclusion of the event. The fire department plans to use the funds to purchase 10-year smoke alarms with their proceeds.
