The World Food Championships being held right here in beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada has kicked off and the competition has begun. The competitors were grilling their hearts out today and having a blast while doing so. I’ve never seen grillmasters so focused. These chefs mean business and their putting their hearts and souls into this competition. Galaxy Outdoor has sponsored three teams this year and we couldn’t be happier with these amazing chefs.

The Bbacats Barbecue Team Celebratory Dance

The Bbcats Barbecue Team from Belgium put on a show for everyone at the World Food Championships 2014. The greatest part is that they did this dance after turning their BBQ in for judging, so we were able to see them do multiple times a day. The Bbcats Pro Barbecue Team is professional, focused, enthusiastic and a blast to watch compete. Check out the must see video below!

World Food Championship History

The World Food Championships is the natural progression of the thousands of cooking competitions that take place across the globe each year. Tens of thousands of consumers will compete in a year-long trial to qualify for the World Food Championships. The World Food Championships takes over where Food Network leaves off – in the kitchen and backyard of every American home. Not fake made for TV stars – but everyday real consumers who simply believe they can.

Nowhere in the culinary landscape is the spirit of integration and engagement more alive than at the World Food Championships, where the world’s most creative food champions face off for pride and culinary glory. The World Food Championships averages about 25,000 attendees per day throughout the multiple zones and competitions, all while being filmed by Core Media Group/Sharp Entertainment for a six-episode TV series to air on the A&E family of networks in Spring of 2014.

Galaxy Outdoor Kamado Rocket 3-In-1 Professional Grill

Built-In Kamado Rocket in Island Application

The Kamado Rocket 3-In-1 Professional Barbecue Grill

Galaxy Outdoor of Las Vegas, Nevada is the home of the famous Kamado Rocket Professional 3-In-1 BBQ Grill. A Kamado style grill that looks exactly how you want it look. It’s been called “A Functional Piece of Art” and is the most advanced cooking system in the world.

The Kamado Rocket Choice

The Kamado Rocket combines the traditional kamado style grill concept with 21st century engineering to bring you the hands down best cooking experience on the market today. From the first time you see it, the hand laid tile on the exterior draws you in for a closer look. Every piece of metal from the interior parts to the hardware on the outside is made from U.S. made 304 stainless steel for a low maintenance and trouble free experience. Our industry first gas burner system allows you to rapidly start your charcoal to minimize start up and will actually get hot enough to cook with as well with either propane or natural gas.. The shell is made from a top of the line, thermodynamic material that speeds up the cooking time almost in half in certain instances while keeping food moist and juicy.
The Kamado Rocket is designed to outperform any other type of smoker/grill on the planet, 100% handmade to the highest quality right here in the United States of America, offering more standard options and capabilities than all other smoker/grills combined.
