Get Out Your Beer & BBQs!

I have been invited to  judge the upcoming Rickard’s Griller of Glory BBQ cook off, August 28th in Yonge-Dundas Square. Beef w/ Rickard's Red

So you know how I was recently invited go and meet some folks from Molsons, Rickards and Creemore (they are all the same folks, folks)?

Well, it has turned into something seriously cool!

Trayful of Rickard's WhiteI’ll be judging alongside Phil Nyman (the head judge) of Phil’s Original BBQ, and we both know our BBQ!  I’ve very excited about tasting what people will come up with.  Cooking with fire and cooking with beer are 2 of my favourite things!

It’s a serious competition with a cook-off in Yonge-Dundas Square on August 28th (yes, that’s very very very soon!!!) and the winner walking away with a prize pack includinga new Napoleon Gourmet Grill.
