Chef Vincent Mangual of Empire BBQ in Staten Island was crowned this year’s Rib King. Mangual is no stranger to coming up with an award-winning formula. The Empire team came in fresh from their “Let’s Tacquito About It” award at Brisket King® NYC last month and took first place at last year’s Pig Island NYC™.
