What Bad Ass BBQ is up to this summer:
BBQure For Cancer
Blind Bay, BC
June 9 2012
This annual competition is put on by our BBBQF’s Morely and Nancy Hansen from Shuswap BBQ. We raise a lot of money for cancer research and we have a great time competing on the Shuswap. Morely always adds some left field category like ‘weiners and waffles’ -last year. OK, we won last year with wiener and waffle bread pudding but if you add Grande Marnier to anything you stand a better chance with the judges!
We had so much fun at this competition this year! Not just because we won Grand Champion!!!
The Canadian Festival of Chili and BBQ
June 23 – 24, 2012
In 1995 I went to this event for the first time. I had never been to a Chili and BBQ competition before and I went there to film a story about the festival for the news. The people and food hooked me more than I could have ever thought possible. Now with our friends and co-competitors Wayne Fettback from Mad Cow BBQ with Fred and Betty Roycroft we produce the event!
Last year we raised over $8000 for The BC Professional Firefighters Burn Fund.

Canadian National BBQ Championships
Whistler Creekside, BC
August 4 and 5 2012
We have done this competition since its inception in 2001. Absolutely one of our favorites and it has been very good to us over the years.
