Well this is going to be quick update to the blog for sure! I am currently doing a 3 day Traeger demo at the Home Hardware show in St. Jacobs. I am beyond busy.

Back to the comp:

WE arrived in St. Thomas. The site was well laid out. Volunteers everywhere. Ice on site. (They need a couple more porta potties) and overall a really well organized comp. Lots and lots of opportunities for the future for sure. I really enjoyed our neighbours BBQ Effect and especially seeing Jean Claude Bacle from Basques Charcoal.

Everything went smoothly. I was terrified. Any time we have had a night where everything has gone smoothly and I liked all the boxes we have bombed. However we did it. We finally got anther GC in Canada. Team Can’t Stop Grilling took the RGC and it was a reallllly close race to the win for us. Very exciting to have it come down to the wire. Super sweet.


1st in Anything Butt – Chefs Choice

1st in Pork (woot this was a really high score too!)

2nd in Ribs

3rd in Brisket

3rd in Chicken


This was especially a great win as it gave us something we really wanted an Invite to the Americal Royal for 2010.
Our daughters Lexi and Ella were also with us. That was a wonderful thing to share with them. They are our princesses and we are blessed.

Our son Gabe as he is 3 yrs old stays with the Inlaws and he was spoilt rotten all week so he was happy too!

It was a wonderful weekend. I was thrilled to see the Canadian Teams come out and Good Smoke BBQ from the USA.

BIG COngratulations to Can’t Stop Grilling for the RGC.

Overall it was a great relief to know we can still win in Canada.
