Chili and BBQ Competitors Come From Across Canada and the United States

Like a band of gypsy’s these highly competitive teams travel many miles all season long to be around a great group of people of like minds -as crazy as they all might be… Its all about the camaraderie that has been built over years of competing but still everyone wants to win the bragging rights of cooking the winning entry and walking proud to receive their call and the prizes that go with it! This contest has always been proud of its reputation on the BBQ circuit of being a welcoming place to start competing in chili and barbecue. We still have teams competing who started at the inaugural cookoff in 1987 and also many first time cooks and we like it that way!

The Martin’s and DeHoog’s from Buzz Saw BBQ. Young Teddy Martin cooking as “Smoke ‘n Mirrors BBQ” was our Kids Q Grand Champion a few years back. And as his dad Russ says, “Don’t think for one minute that Teddy has let Tom or I forget that he was a Champion!”
