Barn Burner brings the BBQ masters to Chilliwack

It's shaping up to be the battle of the 'cue in four categories: Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, Chicken and Ribs.

The First Annual Barn Burner BBQ 2015 is a fully-sanctioned barbecue competition coming to Chilliwack on March 22 to kick off the competition season.

The First Annual Barn Burner BBQ 2015 is a fully-sanctioned barbecue competition coming to Chilliwack on March 22 to kick off the competition season.

They’re promising competition calibre BBQ at its finest.

It’s a fully-sanctioned barbecue competition coming to Chilliwack on March 22 that will attract fans from all over the Lower Mainland with free samples, and live entertainment.

Get ready for the First Annual Barn Burner BBQ 2015 Competition, hosted by Well Seasoned owner Angie Quaale, and presented by Chilliwack producers Johnston’s Pork & Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry.

“This event will unite barbecue enthusiasts from all across North America who join the quest for ultimate finger-licking barbeque,” says competition organizer Angie Quaale. She is also the host of the decade-old annual BBQ Off The Bypass competition.

“There is no doubt in my mind that the first ever Canadian Barn Burner championship will be a smoking hot event and one to remember.”

Local agri-food producers are in the spotlight, and it’s a chance to see the grill experts do their thing.

More than 20 competitors are coming to town to test their mettle from both sides of the border.

“The big guns of barbecue are all coming.”

The competition will see the battle of the ‘cue in four main categories: Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, Chicken and Ribs. The winning team with the highest total points in all four categories will take home their share of $5000 in prize money along with the first Barn Burner BBQ Grand Championship trophy and bragging rights.

There will be live demonstrations and vendors.

“For me local food is super important,” she said. “It just makes sense to source as much as we can locally.”

When they say “fully-sanctioned” it means of the two officially sanctioned barbecue bodies, they are working with one from Kansas City BBQ Society to present a professional cook-off event with a trained judging panel.

“It’s a brand new event in a new location,” said Quaale.

Admission to Barn Burner BBQ on Mar. 22 is by donation with all proceeds to Ruth and Naomi’s Mission. It runs 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the poultry farm at 4540 Simmons Road, Chilliwack.
