It was 1991 when David Veljacic was named the Canadian Barbecue Champion.
a fireman from Vancouver, had been barbecuing competitively for eight
years and had captured awards internationally for his barbecued salmon
before taking the granddaddy of all barbecue prizes from the Kansas
City Barbecue Society. (KCBS is the world’s largest organization of
barbecue enthusiasts and if you win the championship from this
organization, you’re considered the best in the world!)
