Angie Quaale joins forces with “Diva Q” as first Canadian team & B.C. competitor on American program with 900,000 viewers

July 27, 2010 (Langley, B.C.) –  Angie Quaale, B.C.’s Queen of BBQ and owner of Well Seasoned in Langley and organizer of the annual BBQ on the Bypass, will be featured in the premiere episode of season two of the popular reality TV show, BBQ PITMASTERS. Quaale wrapped up filming last month in Los Angeles where she joined forces with Toronto’s “Diva Q” barbeque team featuring Danielle Dimovski and her husband Vlado to compete against five teams in the ultimate barbeque challenge. The episode will air on Thursday, September 2nd at 10 pm PST/9 pm Central on Discovery – TLC.

The Diva Q team was selected from thousands of entries to compete on the show and will be the first Canadian team to ever appear on the program. Quaale, who also competes on her own team called “Competely Q-Less” was invited by Dimovski to act as an assistant pitmaster, making Quaale the first British Columbia resident to ever be featured on BBQ PITMASTERS.   “I was so honoured Danielle invited me to join her for this incredibly exciting and nerve wracking experience,” said Angie Quaale. “From the moment I landed in L.A., I was miked and on camera and we never knew what challenge or turn of events was ahead of us. I’ve competed in countless barbeque contests but this was definitely the most challenging yet!”

In season two of BBQ PITMASTERS, teams from throughout North America will compete against each other in different categories with the weekly winners facing off against each other in the second season finale. The panel of judges includes celebrity chef Art Smith, author of Back to the Table and Kitchen Life; SuperBowl champion and BBQ enthusiast, Warren Sapp; and Myron Mixon, a season one competitor and owner of Jack’s Old South.
As part of her contract with Discovery-TLC, Quaale has been sworn to secrecy regarding the details of her appearance on the show. She can reveal, however, that the challenge did involve barbequing alligator, a meat she had never cooked with before.
This will be Quaale’s second brush with the popular program. The first was earlier this year, when it was announced that Harry Soo, a celebrity chef from season one of BBQ PITMASTERS will be participating in the 2010 BBQ on the Bypass on September 19th and teaching a BBQ cooking class at Well Seasoned in Langley.
