BBQ Championships

This long weekend make sure to check out the Canadian National BBQ Championships. The event takes place from August 1 - 3 at the ultra cool environment of Dusty's Bar & Grill. Every year the best grillers in the nation and the United States flock to Whistler to participate in the country's most prestigious BBQ event.

Both amateur and professional grillers have the opportunity to strut their stuff during the three day event. Each day is highlighted by FREE concerts, cook-offs and endless BBQ buffets. If you have an affection for good BBQ we encourage you to check out this event.

One of the coolest features of the event is roaming the grounds during the two BBQ competition days (Saturday & Sunday). Watch as these masters of BBQ create mouth watering creations right before your eyes. Of course watching isn't as fun as tasting - which thankfully is encouraged throughout the day. During each competition samples are provided for a $1 fee, with all proceeds going towards Whistler charities. At the end of the day if you arn't full enough you can always buy a ticket for the all all you can eat BBQ Buffet prepared by the chef's at Dusty's.

The Canadian National BBQ Championships takes place this August 1 - 3 at Dusty's Bar & Grill. Keep reading below for a complete look at the 2014 schedule!
