BBQ Pitmaster Luke Darnell

World Food Champions

World Food Champ Luke Darnell is from Bristow, Virginia. His perfectly smoked, medium rare, seared Tri-tip steak with a rich drizzle of hollandaise sauce won him Best BBQ Dish. The steak was served to the panel of judges with an over the top smoked lobster, bacon, mac and cheese.

Luke isn’t new to the world of BBQ battles. He and his team of pitmasters called Old Virginia Smoke won four grand championships and over $100,000 in prize money.
