Vista BBQ Classic Tremendous Success


Forty BBQ experts and aficionados came from all over the country, and the world, to compete in the Vista BBQ Classic this weekend, July 28-29, 2017.

L-R Roger Cason, Nick Flynn, Brian Gilliland, Jesse, Christopher Collett, Desiree Collett, Victor Magallon from Temple City, CA

7 Sins BBQ drove from Temple City, California, Swine Thyme USA BBQ from Las Vegas, Nevada Owned by Chef Phillip Dell, and the BBQ cooking team that definitely traveled the farthest was the Smoking Jokers, who brought their Tazmanian Wagyu Beef Brisket on the plane with them from Australia which was supplied by Robbins Island Cattle. Tazmania has the cleanest air in the world and they claim it produces the best beef because of it. Smoking Jokers came here specifically because they like Southern California and they have a friend in the area who supplied some of the equipment they needed for the event.

L-R Rohan Dimock, Mark Bateman, Paul King

The participants really enjoy coming to historic Vista because most of the time they are in a middle of a field at a fairgrounds or in a desert. There is no better location for this venue than Historical Downtown Vista where their families can shop, eat in local restaurants and go to a movie.
