We're excited to see the field of competitors who have already won their golden ticket and registered to compete at the 2022 World Food Championships. And we are always proud to announce our special guests and celebrity judges participating in our judging events across the nation - we're sure the championship food certainly helps! Best of luck to our 2022 competitors!



HEAD COOK: Craig Lyjak

COMPETITION: World Barbecue Championship

QUALIFYING EVENT: Safeway National Capital BBQ Battle

Qubed is a three person BBQ team out of Loveland, OH. We are hobbyists that have been competing for 6 years on the professional circuit. Craig and Julie are both engineers at a major consumer products company and Aiden, 7, is a student and enjoys sports. Outside of a few competition focused classes, the team has no culinary training. Our success can be attributed to our research, practice and scientific approach to cooking and logistics at contests. We know we enter a major competition like the World Food Championships as underdogs. Many teams compete in more competitions annually than we have in our entire career. Fortunately we are judged by the quality of our food and not by our name recognition or the size of our sponsors. Our passion and competitive spirit give us the potential to win on any given day, even if the odds are not in our favor.
