Medallion Transport & Logistics is again a Corporate Sponsor at the annual World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest which takes place May 16-19 in Memphis, TN as part of the annual “Memphis in May” International Festival.
Thanks to Medallion and other sponsors, teams like “Smoked N Spiced” can do what they love – prepare great BBQ dishes and compete against teams around the world – at this annual event. The team is led by Medallion Sales Agent, Kendal Adair who works out of the company’s corporate Olive Branch, MS office. Kendal and team are competing in the Rib Division as their main focus, although other team members, highly successful cooks from across the United States, are involved in each of the Ancillary Divisions as well.
Last year, Kendal’s team finished 11 out of 55 for the Shoulder Division and 15th in the Seafood category, less than a point from the top 10 and five points from the finals.
Medallion Sales Agent, Kendal Adair is the team’s Rib Master, and an accomplished BBQ chef with numerous championships under his belt. He participated as a celebrity chef during the 2017 National Hardware Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The 2018 World Championship Barbecue Contest takes place specifically on Wednesday, May 16.
Other event sponsors include Nucor Steel, DLS Worldwide and Mallory Alexander.
