Day two at the World BBQ Championships in Memphis
It’s been another amazing day in Memphis and we’ve so much to tell you all – or should that be “Y’all”?
Today has been an opportunity for the chefs to practice and get used to the techniques and equipment we are using over here. Judging in the beef, seafood and exotic classes starts tomorrow, so the guys have been perfecting these products so that when it comes to ‘turning in’ our entry it is as good as it can be. We have then been around some of our fellow competitors and getting some feedback and to be honest they are telling us we are doing some amazing food.
The competitors out here have been amazingly friendly and incredibly helpful. They are so excited to see a British team that when word got round that we are here, we had a VIP group of 17 competition judges contact us to see what we are doing on our stand. We gave them a presentation and let them taste some our lamb and rib-eye beef which they told us was one of their highlights of their day!
Our team is starting with chefs Mark, Dermott, Andy and Santiago. Our butcher is Andy and then supporting these guys is myself, Jon, Kristian, Elaine and Katherine.
We hope you are enjoying our blog and we will post some more tomorrow.
