Barbecue World Championship trip on offer with French's and Frank's RedHot

Spices and sauces manufacturer McCormick, the owner of French's and Frank's RedHot sauces, has launched a competition for an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Memphis this May, to experience the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest.

Held annually on the banks of the Mississippi river in Downtown Memphis, Tennessee, from the 15-18 May, the competition is, according McCormick, "a mecca for pit masters and barbecue cook-out connoisseurs."

The competition is open to UK chefs, caterers and F&B managers. One lucky winner will be pulled out of a well-worn baseball cap, with 10 runners up each receiving an exclusive branded barbecue barrel drum.

Chris Cannon, commercial controller at McCormick (UK) Flavour Solutions, commented: "It's fair to say that no one does barbecue like the US, and in the deep south, it's less a cooking style and more a dedicated subculture, with the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest at its heart.

"There's a reason why some 70,000 people make an annual pilgrimage to Tom Lee Park and we think that's an experience well worth sharing. It's also the place where you get to see some of the latest barbecue trends, techniques and flavours, so I urge anyone curious to learn from the best and gain some insider information before anyone else, to enter the competition today! Hopefully we'll see you in Memphis!"
