Greenwich’s own Samantha and John Ambrogio have a competition BBQ team based out of Greenwich: Greenwitch Que Co. We compete in about 5 competitions annually since 2009. I believe we are the only local team from Greenwich.
This weekend the team competed at the 2016 Harpoon Brewery BBQ Fest in Windsor, Vermont where they won their very first Grand Champion Title!
The competition runs two days and the Ambrogio team won the Saturday July 23 competition, titled the “Summer Sizzler,” which consisted for four categories: Shrimp, Sausage, Chicken Wings and a Chef’s Choice using the Harpoon Beers or Ciders.
The Ambrogio team took 2nd place in Shrimp & Chicken Wings and placed First overall Grand Champion!
While the Ambrogios have won numerous awards over the years including several 1st place people’s choice and 1st place pulled pork, this was their very first Grand Champ title.
The team helping Samantha and John at the Harpoon Brewery BBQ consisted of all Greenwich residents including family – John Ambrogio “Pitmaster” Owner/Founder, Samantha Ambrogio, Sidney Byrne 17 year old Greenwich High School senior, and Madeline Ambrogio – 7 yr future pit master; Pit Crew (helpers) Steve & Terry Bozzuto with their teenage/young adult children: Emily, Kerri & Steven, Vinny Hackett , Jen LaRusso, Terry Crowle, and Ashley Maignan.
