Competitors

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

Like a group of traveling gypsy’s these highly competitive teams travel many miles to be around a great group of people with like minds -as crazy as they all might be… Its all about the camaraderie that has been built over years but still everyone wants to win the bragging rights of cooking the winning entry! 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!”
