More photos of Rock 'n' Roll Beer-B-Que 2012 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

If you didn't make it to Saturday's Rock 'N' Roll Beer-B-Que at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, you missed out on quite the party. Restaurants from all across the area came out to showcase their skills and compete with ample supplies of meat and other barbecue staples. To wash it all down, local bars and breweries helped out by supplying what seemed like a never-ending stock of beer.

More than a dozen restaurants and caterers competed to win a handful of titles, ranging from Best Chicken to Most Unique. Hard Rock Cafe won as Best Overall for its Carolina and Texas-Style BBQ sandwiches. Greg Stewart of the Hard Rock Cafe offered his take on the win: "We picked these dishes to introduce the new stuff the company has come up with. We have been using our worldwide reach to bring different flavors from around the world. These sandwiches come from our new line of barbecue sandwiches, which we started selling this year."

Check out other winners and photos after the jump.

Best Brisket, Best Ribs, and Fan Favorite
Bokamper's Sports Bar and Grill
We spoke to James Dean of Bokamper's to get his reaction on his triple win: "It feels good. Real good. I wanted to enter everything to see what we could get, but I've always loved ribs. They are our specialty; it's nice to be acknowledged for that." Besides its winning ribs and brisket, Bokamper's spread was complete with chicken wings, macaroni and cheese, and even a whole roasted hog.

Most Unique
Whiskey Tango
Their whole boneless bacon confit suckling pig sandwich topped with chipotle peach mustard and fennel celery root slaw served on homemade rosemary focaccia was certainly one of the more intricate offerings.
