The Food

A bit about BBQ: BBQ is NOT grilling!!

There is a very distinct difference between the two. Just ask anyone that knows BBQ and they will tell you all about it !!

Southern style BBQ is a technique in which meat is cooked at low temperatures (about 225 F) for a long time over indirect heat. The heat source is charcoal and wood. No gas/propane is allowed. The Barn Burner BBQ competition consists of 4 main categories: Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, Chicken and Ribs. Brisket is cooked for 12 – 16 hours. Ribs take aprox. 6 hours & chicken aprox. 4 hours.

Teams will also compete in a BBQ “Black Box” cook-off. This “Iron Chef” style competition gives these BBQ competitors a chance to show off their more creative side. They will each be presented with a black box with four mystery ingredients. Those ingredients must be incorporated into a single dish and submitted to the judges. Judges will award points based on originality, taste and presentation. It is sure to be a very tasty battle.

Join us April 9th and have some BBQ!!

SAMPLES are free BUT please keep in mind that the teams are here to compete. During a brief window when, at the top of each hour, they are preparing their food to turn into the judges they will not be offering samples. Just as soon as that is done, they will sample the food that is left and you can taste award winning BBQ for yourself! Get in line & decide for yourself whose cuisine reigns supreme ?

Be sure to head over to the Johnston’s Pork trailer for BBQ samples! The Farm Store will be open throughout the day for your local shopping needs as well as manning the Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry trailer. Get some!
