TERRACE'S REDNECK Kitchen poses with their ribbons at the BBQ on the Bow in Calgary

All for the love of barbecue

Terrace's Redneck Kitchen scores trophy and four ribbons at BBQ on the Bow in Calgary, Canada's oldest barbecue competition.

A LOCAL family took on the barbecue competition in Calgary and finished in third place overall.

Local barbecue pit master Bevan Sweeney travelled to Calgary, Alberta to participate in the 21st annual barbecue competition, BBQ on the Bow, which is Canada’s oldest barbecue competition, at the end of August.

“The truly great part of this event was that it was all about family, right from Bevan’s mom, to his children, and his brother,” said his partner Laura Letourneau.

Bevan and his brother Colby brought humour, enthusiasm and entertainment to the event in their crazy Nova Scotia style.

Bevan received the honour of being asked to cook for the judging class on Aug. 30.

Then Bevan and Laura entered chef’s choice, and his brother Colby entered the sauce competition Aug. 31.

Bevan and his team entered the competition meats that included brisket, pork butt, ribs, and chicken Sept. 1.

The process included being on site overnight and sleeping on a cot for a couple of hours while his brother watched the barbecue.

Out of 26 teams, Redneck Kitchen placed third overall, Bevan got third on his pulled pork, fourth on his chicken, sixth for chef’s choice and Colby placed fourth for his sauce.
