It is a shame that he isn't getting more teams. Ben does a good job putting on this contest.

It's he feeling better this year? Seems like I remember he had surgery right before last year.

I got this from him in an email today....the other post mentions this as well but here some more details on it.

Shotgun Fred BBQ Showdown Named Preferred Qualifier for World Food Championships


The Shotgun Fred BBQ Showdown will have a featured representative at the 2017 World Food Championships in Orange Beach, Alabama, according to Mike McCloud, CEO of the World Food Championships.

“More than 400 pre-qualified competitors will enter one of ten competition categories beginning Nov. 8, and the champion of the Shotgun Fred BBQ Showdown will be among them,” McCloud said.

The Shotgun Fred BBQ Showdown is sending a winner from its 2017 event to compete against the World Food Championships roster of Golden Ticket contestants. The Shotgun Fred BBQ Showdown has been elevated to Preferred Qualifier status by guaranteeing that its winner’s registration fees are paid and other assistance is provided to compete in Orange Beach.

“Stakes are high and the competition is intense with a total purse of $350,000 in cash and additional prizes, while the ultimate World Food Champion takes home a grand prize of $100,000,” McCloud said.

Competitors will prepare food on site in timed events that include preparation speed, specialty recipes, presentation and the ultimate test of taste. The categories this year include BBQ, Chili, Sandwich, Seafood, Bacon, Burger, Dessert, Steak and Recipe, which has a theme of “Chicken” in 2017. This year the winner of the World Chef Challenge will also compete at the Final Table.

“Tournament judges will select the top 10 finalists in each category, where they will then compete for the chance to go to the Final Table,” explained McCloud. “It is there that one culinary genius will rise up from nine category champions to become the 2017 World Food Champion.”

McCloud said that cooking is not the only opportunity for participation in the World Food Championships. Those interested in volunteering or in learning to become a certified WFC judge may sign up on the World Food Championships website.

“The World Food Championships offers opportunities for people to watch celebrity chef competitions, attend demonstrations, review at the latest cooking appliances and become part of a fun, family-friendly experience,” he observed, adding that there will be thousands of spectators, colorful teams, special judges and foodie volunteers in Orange Beach for the Nov. 8 – 14 event.
