Grillin’ On The Bay 2011 – The Results.

A big thank you to all the teams, judges, table captains, volunteers, eaters and drinkers who braved the cold yesterday and joined us in Brooklyn. A huge thank you to our sponsors, RUB, Yelp, The Chelsea Brewery, The Waterfront Ale House, and Ribs Within.

After 7 years, I am still overwhelmed by the support of the BBQ community. Thanks for cookin’ in Brooklyn! And thanks for dealing with all the little snags of the day. The gremlins were out in force this year.

The RUB Rapid Fire Challenge 2009

A couple of days before the event, our sponsor RUB BBQ with Pat LaFrieda Meats put together a new challenge for the teams; The Rub Rapid Fire Challenge. At the last turn in for Grilin’ On The Bay, the chef’s choice category, the cooks were given a mystery protein to cook and submit to a new team of judges.

It was indeed a challenge as our cooks were presented with an untrimmed prime hangar steak for the protein and judged by Andrew Fischel, Scott Smith, both of RUB BBQ, Nick Solares of Serious Eats and Gary Goldblatt of Pigtrip.

The Rub Rapid Fire Challenge Top 10 Results:
10. Josh Ozersky
9. Ma’s Cue Crew
8. Smoke On The Water
7. Eat A Donut
6. Ribs Within
5. Purple Turtle Caterers
