2006 Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational Barbecue
Lynchburg, Tennessee   Oct 27 & 28

There were over 25,000 people and media from all over the world in attendance at the Jack Daniel's 18th Annual World Championship Invitational Barbecue held on Oct 27 & 28 in Lynchburg, Tennessee.  Congratulations to the team who won the coveted title of Grand Champions.  It was an unbelievable experience and the team is thrilled to have had the chance to compete.

Team Cedar Grilling finished 50th overall and placed 4th overall in the International division.  The team competed against the best barbequers in the world under grueling conditions.  After 2 days of non-stop miserable weather, the rain and wind held off just long enough for the International parade on Friday evening, and then cleared up overnight for the Saturday festivities. 

There were 15 International teams from Austria, Poland, Australia, Puerto Rico, England, Germany, Switzerland and Canada along with one team from each of the 50 U.S. states.  There were 48 teams competing in the Shade Tree division. 

The Team Cedar Grilling booth was decorated with antique Canadian sports memorabilia and had two family members dressed in full Mountie uniforms to talk to barbeque fans from around the world.

The Mounties led the Team in the parade proudly flying two Canadian flags borrowed from the Acton Legion, while the team handed out Canadian flags and pins to spectators.  When it was time for the teams competition food turn-in, the Mounties would part the crowds in front of a team member carrying the food so the delicate plate wouldn’t be bumped during the five minute journey to the judging area.

The team is extremely thankful to the many  Canadians from Georgetown, Barrie, Bala,  Mississauga and Guelph who made the 2900 km trip to Tennessee to support Team Cedar Grilling at this International event.

Team Cedar Grilling has been invited to compete next year in Belgium and Puerto Rico.
