Saskatoon - Smoke on the Water July 25-26 (Jack anyone?)

Post by Rob R » Tue Jul 07, 2009 4:41 pm

I'm just posting an announcement of a competition up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on July 25-26. This is a first year event and will be a Jack qualifier if it hits the 15-team threshold. We do have competitive barbecue up here in the Canadian prairies, in fact we had 17 teams out to a similar competition in Saskatchewan last weekend.

The Saskatoon competition is sanctioned by the PNWBA and includes the 4 main categories plus a Chef's choice / Anything butt event.

Here are some more notes about the event:
- It's being held in a brand new year-round farmers market location which attracts thousands of people on a normal weekend. The market is on the riverbank of the South Saskatchewan River.
- $4700 in prize money for the professional / sanctioned event
- There is a flurry of promotional activity going on to bring people down to check out the event, the city is very excited to host it. There will be a lot of people who know nothing about BBQ and will be walking around with great curiosity.
- In conjunction with the sanctioned event, there is an amateur / grilling event and a grilling contest open to local hotels and restaurants
- Other activities include product vendors, food vendors, buskers, kids games with prizes, horseshoe competition for the adults, professional musicians playing all day, Beer gardens.

The event website is www.saskbbq.ca
If you have any questions, there is a contact on the website, or feel free to send me a PM.
Thanks!
