Tim and Teri Scheer of Shake ‘N Bake BBQ, a barbeque team from Washington, Missouri, were awarded the Grand Champion prize at the 5th Annual Death’s Door BBQ (DDBBQ) on Aug. 27 on Washington Island. This year, Death’s Door BBQ featured 42 teams from six states. The winning teams split $7,500 in prize money and all profits help fund the Washington Island Food Pantry.
Death’s Door BBQ is Door County’s only Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS)-sanctioned barbeque event. KCBS sanctions more than 500 barbeque contests worldwide.
This year’s event was the first time Tim and Teri Scheer participated in the DDBBQ contest; they dominated the 2016 competition by winning two of the four Kansas City Barbecue Society’s four meat categories. They took first place in the Chicken and Ribs categories and placed seventh in both the Pork and Beef Brisket categories.
Reserve Grand Champions are Darren and Sherry Warth of Smokey D’s BBQ. Last year’s DDBBQ Grand Champion, T-Mac Smokin’ of Sturgeon Bay, was awarded the third place prize in overall standings at the 2016 event. For complete results, visit their Facebook page or deathsdoorbbq.com.
