Brian Misko of House of Q

On Sunday September 18th, I attended the 6th Annual BBQ on the Bypass which was my 2nd visit. Last year I judged the Pie Competition, this year I opted to join in the fun of tasting meat at all the different competitors booths.

This is Greater Vancouver’s biggest BBQ competition & it is a free public event that offered competitions, barbequed food & entertainment.

Teams from throughout the Pacific Northwest competed in Langley in this southern style barbeque contest where meats were smoked over charcoal at low temperatures for up to 16 hours. Entries were rated by a panel of 50 judges certified by the Pacific Northwest BBQ Association based on their flavour, texture and appearance.

The team with the highest overall points was crowned the BBQ on the Bypass Grand Champion, earning trophies and a cash prize. The event featured BBQ food samples provided by the teams as well as musical entertainment.
