BBQ and Beer. These two delightful American staples are a favorite way to beat the summer sizzle. The small town of Deer River, Minnesota celebrated both last Saturday at the 3rd Annual Deer River BBQ and Brew Fest. BBQ champions from across the state pulled out all the stops and competed in four delectably different categories: Beef Brisket, Pork, Chicken and this bloggers personal favorite, Ribs. Along with bragging rights, the skilled chefs in each category received prizes for 2nd place, 1st place and one overall Grand Champion. When planning the festivities, Tyler had the seemingly impossible task of finding someone capable of helping him fabricate several different prizes while under a very tight deadline. So he turned to CustomMade and found three very different yet talented makers who helped him bring his ideas to life.
These fabulous CustomMade makers were able to design and craft three distinctly different prizes. For those coming in second place, Woodworking by Erminio crafted four stunning custom cutting boards. The husband and wife team behind Palmer Union Design created four large plaques for the first place winners of each category. Finally, the prize of Grand Champion Grill Master was proudly crafted by MWB Studios, who customized a decorative cutting board for the winner of that honor.
Through CustomMade, Tyler was able to give BBQ champions from the mid-west prizes to proudly display in their kitchen for years to come.
