When the sun is shining and the skies are blue it means that it’s time to bring out the Barbeque. Grab the family and indulge in a variety of BBQ chicken, brisket, ribs, pork, and pretty much anything else you can BBQ at the 8th annual BBQ on the Bypass. Every year people from all over come and enjoy what this event has to offer with a variety of fun entertainment to delectable food.
The event will be taking place September 15th, from 10 am-5 pm at 20771, Langley Bypass and is hosted by Langley’s very own Well Seasoned, a gourmet food store. The main event is the BBQ competition where teams come from near and far to demonstrate their skills. The team with the most points in each category (chicken, brisket, ribs, pork butt and an “anything but”/open choice category) will win prizes and trophies. The winner with the most points in all categories totaled, wins the Grand Championship and up to $10,000. They are then crowned BC BBQ Champion and the winner of the David Veljacic Memorial Cup and also get a chance to go on to the Jack Daniels World BBQ Championship in Tennessee.
On top of the BBQ, they host an amateur pie baking competition, open to the public called Great BC Bake Off. The Bake Off has three major categories fruit pie, butter tarts, and an open category where anything goes. Ribbons are awarded to the top three in each category and first place will receive $150 gift card to Well Seasoned. If that isn’t enough to not only make you drool, but also get you excited about attending the event there is more. The event will have tastings and live entertainment all day long! You get dinner and a show, who doesn’t love that? The whole family is sure to enjoy it, so bring your appetite and enjoy everything the BBQ on the Bypass has to offer.
