[Langley, BC] The 11th annual BBQ Off the Bypass (BOTB), presented by C&D Logistics, in partnership with Johnston’s and Well Seasoned Gourmet Food Store, returns to Langley (117-20353 64th Avenue) with the Great BC Bake-Off on Sunday, September 11. The event is family-friendly and free to attend. Admission donations are encouraged to support this year’s charitable partner, TinyKittens.

As BBQ teams from across Washington State, Montana, Saskatchewan and British Columbia compete for the grand championship of $5,000 cash prize, attendees are invited to enjoy complimentary samples of delicious slow-cooked meat, treats from vendors and live music from The New Shackletons.

This year’s competing BBQ categories include: chicken, brisket, ribs, pork and a blackbox category.

Also returning with BBQ Off the Bypass is the 7th annual Great BC Bake-Off, an amateur pie baking competition open to the public. Home bakers are encouraged to submit their favourite pie or tart in one of three categories: fruit pie, butter tart or anything pie.

“We’re excited to be back again for the 11th year with TinyKittens as our charitable partner. Bring a friend or your family and join us in Langley for the annual celebration of Southern style BBQ.” – Angie Quaale

Food Truck Announcement: WHOLE HOG from Johnston’s

Johnston's Whole Hog

We can hardly contain our excitement! Johnston’s, this year’s title sponsor and pork category sponsor, will have their rotisserie on site to roast a WHOLE PIG! If you made it to this year’s Barn Burner BBQ event, you saw (and hopefully tasted) it in action!


Our 2016 Charitable Partner!

We’re very proud to have back our charitable partner Tiny Kittens.  Tiny Kittens’ will again act as our event greeters and will have donation boxes at both entrances.

Entry is still free but people are encouraged to make a donation – all proceeds go to Langley based TinyKittens. We LOVE the rescue work they do and know that every penny we raise is SO important to the cats & kittens they help! You can check out the work they do on their website.

The official purpose of TinyKittens Society is to promote the welfare of cats by:

  • rescuing stray, feral, abandoned, unwanted or abused cats
  • encouraging responsible pet ownership through education for the general public
  • partnering with schools to offer classroom education for students

They’re back!

The New Shackletons will be back at BOTB 2016!
