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!


Chili Chili Bang Bang

HEAD COOK: Bob Strayer

COMPETITION: World Open Chili Championship

I am a Florida Professional Land Surveyor by trade, but have competed for the last 20+ years in Chili contests, BBQ contests, backyard cook-offs, and Annual Surveyors cooking contests statewide. Obviously my passion is Great Food cooked "Right". I am also a certified Florida BBQ Association Judge. Our team this year knew we put together a winning pot of chili, and we are honored and very excited on going on to the World Food Championships to represent Venice, Florida in the Open Chili Competition in November. I'd like to thank all the teams that competed against us in the Suncoast BBQ Bash to get us here, and pushing us over the top with our 1st Place Chili!
