COMPETITION: World Burger Championship
QUALIFYING EVENT: 2012 World Food Championships
Brad Leighninger is the head chef of the championship winning Gettin' Basted Competition BBQ Team. A professional slacker with a keen eye for obscure collectibles, Brad works as a database administrator for an electric cooperative in southern Missouri. Many wasted years spent in the bartending and restaurant business honed his passion for all things food and drink. Brad travels the globe seeking his next transcendental pork experience. His current goal is to make something that 'tastes like that pig I had in Puerto Rico'.
Brad is eagerly anticipating the opportunity to improve on his 7th place side dish and 6th place potato salad finishes he earned at the 2012 World Food Championships.
