Galaxy Outdoor of Las Vegas, Nevada had an exclusive event on November 5th. We had a blast Wednesday night from 6:00PM to 8:00PM at this special mixer event we put on here at our showroom. We grilled up Tri Tip, Mini Pulled Pork Sandwiches with our very own Rocket BBQ sauce, Pork Chops, Grilled Pineapple and an amazing Vegetable Medley which we cooked on our Evo Open-Top grill. We’ve included some photo’s below to show you how much fun we had. If you didn’t get a chance to attend on Wednesday night we would like to invite everyone to our November 22nd Fall Grillfest that’s coming up. We’ll have another Brining Class, great food and vendors from our industry. So come on down to Galaxy Outdoor of Las Vegas for some Pre-Thanksgiving food on the 22nd.

Mike and Barb have been on the competition circuit since 2008 and have earned their spot in Canadian BBQ by the numerous awards over the years. Mike has a true passion for cooking, competition and flare. From 2008 until November 2013 Mike and Barb along with Shawn and Lana, were head of Black Pig BBQ.

Black Pig BBQ attended Memphis in May since 2010 winning various awards and accolades. The team created many friendships with other teams, sponsors and continuously represented Canada with pride. Mike was approached with an idea of creating a National Team and so the processes started.

In November 2013 while the World Food Championships, the official letter was received commissioning Black Pig BBQ to create and run Canada’s official BBQ team. Team members were hand selected based on previous competition and cooking experience. Memphis in May 2014 was Team Canada’s competition debut where the team won first place BBQ sauce, 5th place seafood, and 11th place whole hog. The team continued to compete, vend and promote Canadian competition BBQ throughout the rest of the season with their finale to be in Las Vegas at the World Food Championships. Team Canada earned their recipe ticket last year from placing 4th over all and won a BBQ ticket for winning the La Salle Smoke off, Whole Hog, in La Salle Ontario.
