The ninth annual Well Seasoned BBQ Off The Bypass drew hungry and happy crowds of around 4,000 people on Sunday at the brand new location at #117- 20353 64 Ave.

Founder Angie Quaale, owner of Well Seasoned gourmet food store in Langley, fi rst introduced BBQ On the Bypass in 2005 as a way to unite grilling enthusiasts in a quest for the ultimate barbeque, while also exciting the tastebuds of those who haven’t experienced a real barbecue.

“We are still the only free barbecue event in B.C.,” said Quaale.

Dedicated teams from across North America gather to compete in the following five categories: chicken, brisket, ribs, pork butt, and an open choice.

This year, grand champions were  House of Q.

The House of Q won in 2008 and 2012.

They took home the $5,000 in cash and prizes as well as a chance at an invitation to compete in the Jack Daniel’s World Championship in Lynchburg, Tennessee.

For those with a sweet tooth, the annual Great BC Bake-Off also took place, with Gloria Szabo’s apple pie winning in fruit pies, and Dan Niemi for his Caribbean meat pie in the Anything Pie category and Yolanda Yeung for her butter tart
