Butts-N-Brews, the winner of Battle of the BoroQue Georgia Barbecue Association division, and Bubba Grills, the winner of the Memphis Barbecue Network division, have secured Automatically Qualifying positions to compete among the best cooks and chefs in the world at the second annual World Food Championships.
The World Food Championships, boasting a $300,000 prize purse, will be held Nov. 7-10 in Las Vegas.
The Battle of the BoroQue was held at the Statesboro Music Festival in March. The barbecue competition was dual-sanctioned by the Georgia Barbecue Association and the Memphis Barbecue Network. Battle of the BoroQue is an automatic qualifying competition to the 2013 World Food Championships where Butts-N-Brews and Bubba Grills will compete in the World Barbecue Championship.
“The opportunity to compete in an event as large as the World Food Championships is a huge accomplishment,” said Mike McCloud, the president and CEO of Trybe Targeting, the company producing the World Food Championships. “Invited competitors will flex their culinary muscles against more than 400 world-class cooks. This is truly a great honor!”
The second annual World Food Championships invites champions from the world’s biggest and best food competitions and online recipe contests into a single food competition for a battle for fame and a piece of the $300,000 prize purse.
This year, the World Food Championships will be a tournament-style competition with several rounds leading to the defining moment at the Final Table when the champions from the seven competing categories will vie for the ultimate World Food Champ title in front of a panel of food celebrity judges. This year’s categories are: Barbecue, Chili, Burger, Sandwich, Dessert, Bacon and Recipe.
