How good is your barbeque? Would you take it to a nationwide competition? That’s just what the men of the Bergey family aimed to do when they entered the “Fire and Ice” barbeque competition on a frozen lake in Brainerd just a few weeks ago. The family of cook-out enthusiasts competed against nearly 50 teams in a 24-hour competition during which they had to prepare and present four categories of barbeque – chicken, pork ribs, pork butt, and beef brisket – within a strict time frame of thirty-minute intervals. Entries were judged based on appearance, tenderness, and taste.

The team took home the Grand Champion prize in the “Anything Alcohol” category for their S’mores Shooters – a chocolate pudding, Irish cream, bourbon, and roasted marshmallow concoction that earned a near-perfect score – and placed 31st overall. That wasn’t bad for these newcomers to the competitive BBQ front.

“Three years ago, if you’d told me we’d be doing competitive barbeque, I never would have believed it,” says Brady Bergey. The family’s interest began at the Canton Days Off Backyard Cook-off last year, which the four brothers entered on a whim and then won. The brothers had a great time cooking and competing together, and according to Brady Bergey, the youngest brother and Project Manager at Halcon Corporation, “I was hooked”. Brady looked around for another prize winning opportunity to fire up the grill again, and signed them all up for the Fire and Ice competition.

Brady, who lives in Stewartville with his wife Kelly and daughter Madelyn, reports he has always had a passion for cooking, and instantly took to the barbeque scene. He reports that he loves how it’s something the whole family can do together and gives them a reason to spend time together. His passion and initiative make him the “head cook” of the team, a role he describes as “basically, the one coordinating and the point of contact. My role is primarily ensuring the meats are injected and in the smoker at the right time. It’s an all night thing – I’ll be up all night making sure everything’s at the right temperature and smoking properly.”

The team’s other members consist of Brock, and Brandon, along with Brady’s father, Don, who is the purported “supervisor and social butterfly” of the team. Brady values his dad’s opinion, saying, “Dad gives the honest truth when he bites into something.” Don .....
