Rufus Teague Ready To Sauce Things Up At WFC

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. -- (March 30, 2017) -- The World Food Championships announced today that Rufus Teague has joined the Ultimate Food Fight as a sponsor in the barbecue category and will be hosting a special challenge as part of the event’s Top 10 process.

No stranger to barbecue, Rufus Teague has been in the competition industry for years and now offers 11 different flavored sauce products. Teague’s sauce is a premium blend that features the largest line of Non-GMO verified and Gluten-free sauces on the market.

“Our barbeque category is one of the hottest, toughest, most-decorated fields in the Food Sport industry,” commented Mike McCloud, CEO of World Food Championships. “Adding more flavors and competition into the mix thanks to Rufus Teague ensures that our BBQ teams will be put to the test, all while having a lot of fun in the process.”

“We’re so proud to be a part of the World Food Championships this year and are pumped to see what the barbecue masters at this event do with meat, fire, and our Rufus Teague products,” said John McCone, Founder of Rufus Teague.

As part of the overall WFC sponsorship, Rufus Teague will also be doing an online recipe contest called “Rufus’ Blue-Ribbon Recipe Battle,” giving teams around the nation a chance to win a coveted golden ticket and travel stipend to WFC. Details about this contest, as well as the Top 10 challenge at WFC, will be announced this summer on WFC’s social media platforms.
