Grillstock - King of the Grill
Grillstock ‘King of the Grill' is an authentic two-day, US-style, low ‘n’ slow barbecue cooking competition.
Seven rounds are formally judged throughout the weekend and with 27 teams competing in Bristol and 12 in Manchester, claiming the title of Grand Champion is no easy task.
Of those seven rounds, only four count towards the Grand Champion title with the team accumulating the most points over these four being crowned the winner.
Teams from across the world will light the coals at Grillstock festival smoking huge joints of pork, lamb, beef and chicken. The Grand Champion from each festival will win £1,000 in cash and qualify to compete against the best of the best at the prestigious American Royal World Series of BBQ 'Invitational' in Kansas City later this year. Only Grand Champions from other BBQ Competitions are invited to take part.
The competition is tough, with entries having to win over the taste buds of influential faces and experienced international BBQ judges scoring to strict criteria. There are four key rounds of chicken, ribs, brisket and pulled pork that all teams must cook. The team with the most points across these four rounds will be crowned Grand Champion. Further rounds of dessert, lamb and our most popular round of chef’s choice are optional and carry individual awards.
Find yourself in the right place at the right time, smile sweetly, and you may get to sample the the wonderful smoky flavours of the competition entries, talk to the teams and pick up great pit BBQ tips and tricks.
