WFC Crowns First-Ever Fire Woman Champion
The 8th annual World Food Championships (WFC) was filled with more food-fighting action than ever at its Dallas debut last month. One of its highlighted competitions involved a ninety-minute challenge placing four of barbecue’s award-winning lady pitmasters head-to-head in a no electricity battle to determine the ultimate Fire Woman. This smokin’ competition brought a highly praised cast to Dallas. The line-up for this fiery event included Jackie Milligan, Christina Fitzgerald, Robyn “Grill Girl” Lindars and Heather Sinyard, all decorated pitmasters, many of whom have appeared on Food Network.
The Fire Woman competitors cooked their creative dishes on a grill supplied by Bull Outdoor Products, Inc., and used Cowboy® Charcoal products. The competition’s celebrity judging panel including restaurateur and food TV star Jay Ducote, Food Network star contestant Chef Katie Dixon and multi-sport champion and food enthusiast Mark Henry.
Jackie Milligan (head cook of barbecue Team Chupacabra) managed to wow the judges and snag the Fire Woman title and a $2,000 cash prize with her sizzlin’ Bacon Wrapped Filet entry. In addition to winning the ladies-only challenge, Jackie also finished 8th overall in the World Barbecue Championship at WFC.
