Default Win the Jack and get millions in sponsorship!

According to this article:
IS NOTHING SACRED? Brits Talk Trash, Crash Barbecue Bash
Written by Shelley Emling — New York Times News Service


10/16/2007



LONDON — Whether it involves low heat, slow heat, slow smoke or gloppy sauce, few countries know how to incinerate meat as well as the United States.

But now the British barbecue champions believe they can beat the Americans on their home turf.

Indeed, the four-man British team is confident it will bring home the bacon at the granddaddy of all barbecue contests: Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational Barbecue in Lynchburg, Tenn.

The competition begins Oct. 27, but the team landed in the States this past weekend.



A couple of years ago, a British team won "The Jack" in the international division, which is not open to U.S. teams.

But the Brits had to come to America to establish their credentials.

"No matter what country you're from, you know the real competition is over here," said Terry Black, owner of Super Smokers BBQ in Eureka.

" 'Memphis in May,' the 'American Royal' in Kansas City, 'The Jack' and the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Show. You have to make a good showing there to get your name on the map."

Black ought to know. He has won numerous barbecue contests himself, including the 2000 World Championship at the

"Memphis in May" and the Illinois state championship for ribs just last month.

The British never have been renowned for their barbecuing finesse; last year's competitors placed 63rd out of a field of 65. But the team members say this year is different. They've hired the bearded Tennessean Rocky Danner, former vice president of the World Barbecue Association and an internationally renowned judge, to whip them into shape.

Danner spent six weeks with the British team in the North Yorkshire village of Goldsborough, helping the men hone their skills so that they can create melt-in-your-mouth meat.

"These are seasoned veterans, some with 30 to 35 years of experience," Danner said. "I've taught them American-style barbecue, which is low and slow, and they're ready to compete."

The British team includes Jeremy Fowler, Terry Greenhouse and Nick Ellam — all experienced chefs with varied talents. One is a former personal chef to the Sultan of Brunei; another is the former executive chef of the cruise ship Queen Elizabeth 2.

The team's manager, Andy Annat, is the British barbecue champion. He recently was asked to barbecue for 1,500 people at Queen Elizabeth's 80th birthday celebration at her castle in Balmoral.

The winner of the prestigious contest not only takes home $30,000 in cash and prizes but also a chance at millions in sponsorship money — not to mention bragging rights.

To qualify for "The Jack," as the contest is known, U.S. teams either must have been crowned their state's champion or must have won a competition in which at least 50 teams participated. The event is so popular that a lottery is held to choose 65 or so competitors from the pool of qualified teams.

The competitors will go up against each other in categories that include pork shoulder, pork ribs, beef brisket and chicken.

Annat knows the heat will be on his team.

"The timing will be crucial," he said. "We're cooking huge pieces of meat like brisket that are not tender. Even so, we're pretty confident we're coming away with a prize," he said. "We know what we're doing."

While Super Smokers' Black is glad to see the art of barbecue going global, he's not rooting for the invaders to win.

"As a true red-blooded American," he said, "that would just be wrong."

Funny, I guess Scottie (Sp) could answer that one. Millions is a bit strong though but I guess with the exchange rate a million american is only like 200 bucks in england.

I saw this yesterday and read that part too...I think that publication needs a new fact checker. Also, isn't the grand prize more like $3,000...not $30,000?

GC is worth $2500. I know from all of the sponsorships, I am easily raking in millions. So much so, that I am quitting my day job so I can concentrate on cooking BBQ fulltime.

It does open some doors, but millions is a bit of an embelishment...

I wish I could say that I raked in millions for my foundation, as that is my driving force.

I'll make sure to give the Brits a good ribbing while I'm there, since you guys that are cooking won't have time to.

No offense to our British brother CarbonToe but these guys saying they're confident they'll bring home a prize at the Jack kinda annoys me. They're going up against the best BBQ cooks in the WORLD when they are clearly NOT in that category. I am aware that on any given day, lightning can strike but this seems different to me. If they're not a lot intimidated, they should be. I know I would be.

The cooks meeting on Friday is when you realize what you are up against. That's when you see who is all there. You're best bet is to hope that you don't know what everyone looks like!!! ;-)

Good thing I have no clue who anyone is except you Scottie!

On the Limey's ... (had to, I'm SO Irish) at first I thought that they had Rocky join their team (that's illegal now)... then reading it correctly I realized they just hired him for a few months. Does that mean that they needed someone to show them how to Q? I'll take my chances against that. I can only hope they have the same Vegas odds as we do.

I was a little ticked off too... I mean, confident is one thing, but this is the JACK!

Humble Pie is for breakfast on Sunday.
