The origins of de Fielesoofen
The BBQ Fielesoofen are a well-known and celebrated BBQ-TEAM within the ‘Woodland’ region and far beyond. To trace back their history, we need to go back nearly fifteen years in time.
Some likeminded people followed a BBQ course and under the slogan of ‘Fire, food and fun’, they soon started a non-profit organization based on following goals and targets: to learn a number of essential BBQ methods for dishes, whilst sharing their knowledge and expertise with the people in the streets. The most important remains that having fun and having contact with friends is key. And their formula stood out immediately.
The BBQ Fielesoofen organized numerous competitions since 2006.
That year they also started organizing the Woodland Cup, in which around 15 teams participated. Motivated by the enthusiasm they experienced by organizing these sort of initiatives, they kept on pushing their boundaries.
In 2009 they organized the Belgian Championships BBQ in Torhout, capital of Houtland. The amount of participating teams rose to around 35 teams.
Organizing the European Championships BBQ in 2012 in Torhout was the icing on the cake. No less than 60 teams from France, The Netherlands, Luxemburg, Germany, Poland - even some Austrian and Swiss cowbells rang - came all the way to West-Flanders. The atmosphere in Torhout was amazing and the streets of Torhout were filled with the best tastes BBQ can offer..
Obviously they took part in various BBQ competitions themselves.
In 2009 they participated in the Jack Daniel's World Championships in Lynchburg, Tennessee.
A year later they were present at the Belgian Championships BBQ in Genk, Limburg.
The dishes looked great in both competitions and the Fielesoofen took home some very nice awards.
