FLATLANDER BARBECUEYear Started: 2011
DEREK J ARCHAMBAULT
Flatlander Barbecue was started after Derek spent several years judging competitions in the Northeast. Derek's wife, Meghan, brought the camping expertise that he was missing, and now the two are enjoying hitting the circuit along with other family members that have become an integral part of the team.
The team name plays off the word that Vermonters tend to call folks from outside of the Green Mountain state, as Meghan and Derek are originally from southern New England and will be Flatlanders to native Vermonters for years to come.
Most wins in a year:
Biggest Wins: From 2001 through 2014, we have only done 9 contests, but gotten 11 top ten calls across the four categories. Now we just need to get a top ten in all four in the SAME contest!
Sponsors: At the Safeway BBQ Battle, we partnered up with Green Mountain Coffee (Derek's employer) to create entries using Green Mountain Coffee and Celestial Seasonings Perfect Iced Tea K-Cup portion packs.
