Posted by Drake, 5 days, 20 hours ago

For our next battle, a line up down the block is to be expected but with such high steaks, we're excited to see the outcome of this BBQ Battle. To beef up the night's festivities, we're celebrating and screening the premiere of Hogtown BBQ. Before we watch, eat and vote with six of Toronto's top BBQ chefs and pitmasters going head-to-head with their favourite BBQ pork butt + belly preparations we talked to Hogtown host, Chris Patheiger, and the competitors about the 123's and ABC's of B-B-Q.
