The only Canadian remaining in $40K Meat Madness Grilling Tournament
Cornwall-born barbecue enthusiast, Mat Drouin, is the only Canadian to qualify for the ‘Sweet 16’ round in the Meat Madness tournament hosted online by Traeger Wood Fired Grills out of Salt Lake City, Utah. Drouin (also known as Drew or @BBQwithDREW) is 1 of 64 qualifiers into the tournament with competitors from all across North America.
Drouin created his recipe ‘Maple Glazed Pork Medallions & Maple Candied Bacon’ using 100% Canadian maple syrup as his focus on a wood-fired grill. His recipe and photo qualified him for the tournament – an online contest that parallels the NCAA March Madness basketball tournament format.
With over 1600 votes in the previous round, Drouin got nearly twice as many votes in as his competitor in the matchup. Drouin is hoping to keep the momentum going with even more votes in this round.
