We were so fortunate to not just attract more than 4,000 visitors to our inaugural event, but we also scored some excellent press coverage that resulted in this video by go! Fraser Valley on ShawTV.
While there is no substitute for being on site and getting to taste the award winning BBQ, this video showcase gets a honourable mention for featuring the Black Box event and our local teams!
We can’t get enough of this AWESOME Passion for Pork video of Mijune Pak, from Follow Me Foodie, took you behind the scenes of the Barn Burner BBQ Black Box Competition event.
Be sure to visit the Passion for Pork website for some incredible photos of the spectacular submissions as well as a great selection of recipes and other events featuring Pork from Western Canada.

Prairie Smoke and Spice kick off the BBQ season as Grand Champion in Chilliwack
“We could not be happier with the people of Chilliwack and the surrounding communities who made it out to taste with us today,” says organizer Angie Quaale. “We appreciate all of the visiting teams and the sponsors, who really made today special,” she continues. “Now that we can see how much Chilliwack loves low and slow BBQ, we are certain this will become an annual event event at the Farm Store.”
The inaugural Barn Burner BBQ Competition, presented in Chilliwack by Johnston’s Pork and Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry was a huge success. 21 teams competed for the Grand Championship which was captured by Saskatchewan team Prairie Smoke and Spice. Learn more at www.barnburnerbbq.ca.

“One of the many reasons I love food is because it is the perfect medium to bring people closer together in a community,” says competition organizer Angie Quaale, owner of Well Seasoned and the host of the decade-old annual BBQ Off The Bypass competition. “Barn Burner BBQ is one of those events where the community comes together to have fun, celebrate its passion for food and support each other locally,”
