Chefs battle for barbecue star

Some top local chefs are going head to head over a hot barbecue with Delta Grand Chef Stuart Klassen, competing to see who barbecues the best brisket, and everyone’s invited to help raise funds for Habitat for Humanity Kelowna to build homes for deserving families.

The Raise the Roof BBQ Challenge is Sat., Sept. 15 on the rooftop parkade of the Delta Grand Okanagan from noon to 5 p.m.

For $25 you can first be entertained by the antics of chefs competing in front of you at the barbecue, and then you can sample the creations of more than a half dozen different chefs and cast your vote for the best.

While there you can enjoy live music, beer and wine samples and a food concession, as well as help choose the Okanagan’s best barbecue chef.

Tickets are available at

Celebrity judges will get to vote for the Okanagan’s Star of the Barbecue, as well as those in attendance.

The winner after all, though, will be the families who need a hand up, when Habitat for Humanity is able to build them a new home, notes Klassen.
