August 2023

The Que 42 crew kicked off our first Grills Mafia BBQ Throwdown in early August. Set against the backdrop of the Lancaster Renaissance Faire, 9 teams competed for the title Grills Mafia Grill Master. The title was bestowed to Joseph Christopher and his "Paradise City" BBQ team. 

While this was a competition, and the scores were TIGHT, it was amazing to see how they all encouraged and supported each other. We are proud to bring a first-of-its-kind, BBQ society to Western New York. And we're grateful for all the teams, judges, and their families who made this inaugural event a success! 

Our next bbq throwdown is October 21st at the Great Pumpkin Festival in Clarence, NY. Sign up here 👉 Backyard BBQ Competition
