Rod Gray knows his way around a barbecue grill. Yes sir, Gray is quite the butt-kicking barbecuer. The evidence, well that lies strewn everywhere in just about every barbecue award anyone could collect. Gray has displayed his wares on the hit show BBQ Pitmasters, and with wife Sheri earned the title of BBQ National Champions back in 2009. Routed through Carolina, Memphis or the Midwest, Gray has enjoyed phenomenal success on the competitive circuit. His “The Next Big Thing” sauce launched Gray to legendary status, and his Pellet Envy website touts the sauce as making Gray “the best brisket cook in the country”.
Gray will deliver three instructional sessions in Blue Earth Plaza. What would a BBQ bash be without great BBQ? Cox Brothers BBQ answers the call with signature dishes along with cold beer. More BBQ slanted, specialty store The Backyard Kitchen will have a strong presence in Blue Earth Plaza with demonstrations on great lines of smokers and grills.
