The original


hosted the annual Hot Rocks Griller Challenge last night, when sixteen of Denver's top chefs competed to make the best slider.

The winner? Troy Guard of TAG and TAG | RAW Bar, for his kangaroo slider with piquillo pepper remoulade, spinach and pickled cipollini onions (with a side of haricot vert, hijiki seaweed, almonds and miso).

Paul Reilly of Encore took second place with his North African lamb sausage slider. And more lamb -- marinated in achiote, grilled and served on a goat cheese biscuit -- starred in the third place winner, created by Jen Jasinski of Rioja, Bistro Vendome and Euclid Hall.
