Barbeque aficionados will be all fired up March 22 in Yarrow.
first annual Barn Burner Barbecue Competition arrives in Chilliwack, British
Columbia on March 22 from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. at the Farm Store located on 4540
Simmons Road. This free, one-day event is the first fully-sanctioned BBQ
competition in Canada this year.
This fully-sanctioned Kansas City BBQ Society (KCBS) BBQ competition will attract BBQ fans of all ages from throughout the Fraser Valley. Attendees will taste delicious BBQ samples, groove to the live band performance, visit local vendors, enjoy free climbing wall and face painting, all while being a part of a smoking fun event.
At the end of the day, proceeds from the event will support Ruth & Naomi's Mission, a non-profit organization in Chilliwack that feeds the hungry and provides shelter for the homeless.
"One of the many reasons I love food is because it is the perfect medium to bring people closer together in a community," says competition organizer Angie Quaale, owner of Well Seasoned and the host of the decade-old annual BBQ Off The Bypass competition. "Barn Burner BBQ is one of those events where the community comes together to have fun, celebrate its passion for food and support each other locally," she explains.
With visiting KCBS head
judges Kelly and Kathleen McIntosh leading a team of certified local BBQ
judges, the winning team will share a cash prize of $5,000 after achieving
the highest total points in all four competition categories: Beef Brisket,
Pulled Pork, Chicken, and Ribs.
Where: The Farm Store located on 4540 Simmons Road
When: March 22 from 11am to 5pm
