When it comes to barbecuing, Angie Quaale and David Gassaway proved to be the best in Canada.

Well Seasoned and The Canada Q Crew were competing in Whistler over the weekend at the Canadian national barbecue championships.

Up against 40 other competitive barbeque teams at Canada’s largest competition, Quaale and Gassaway were tops among Canadian entries, and second overall, losing only to Washington’s Wine Country Q, who claimed the grand champions spot.

Well Seasoned and The Canada Q Crew won the reserve champion title, the first time they have accomplished the feat.

Last year, the team won the grand championship at Kelowna’s Smoke on the Water competition.

“It’s quite an honour to be recognized as the best team in Canada, especially when the calibre of our competitors is so high,” said Quaale, the team’s BBQ pitmaster.

“The Whistler event attracts the best of the best and now we really can say we’re one of them.”

Quaale is the only female barbecue pitmaster in B.C. and was the first Canadian female to become a certified head judge by the Pacific Northwest Barbecue Association.

She is also the owner of Well Seasoned gourmet food store and cooking school in Langley and the founder of the annual Well Seasoned Barbecue on the Bypass, Greater Vancouver’s largest barbecue competition which will take place on Sunday, September 18th.
