September 11th should be a fun day when the annual BBQ Off the Bypass competition returns for its 11th year, and includes the Great BC Bake-Off.
Free to attend, but with admission donations much appreciated in support of this year’s charitable partner, Tiny Kittens, the event is family-friendly.
Teams of BBQ-skilled folks from BC and Saskatchewan, plus our neighbors in the USA including Washington State and Montana, compete for the grand prize of $5,000. That winner qualifies then to compete in the Jack Daniels World BBQ Championships in Tennessee, and the American Royal BBQ in Kansas City.
The audience attending gets to reap the rewards right off the grill, sampling slow-cooked meat and vibing to live music.
Lover of good Southern-style BBQ? Get ready to witness grill masters show off their culinary talents in the categories of chicken, brisket, ribs, and pork.
Returning for its 7th year is the Great BC Bake-Off, an amateur pie baking competition open to the public.
BBQ and freshly baked pie sounds like the ideal late summer combo, don’t you think? We’ll see you there, just follow the sizzle.
BBQ Off the Bypass is at 117-20353 64th Avenue, Langley B.C. More information can be found at bbqoffthebypass.com.
