February 20th marked the inaugural Champions Invitational Grilling Challenge in San Juan, Puerto Rico where 3 Eyz BBQ took home the gold (and $4,000)!  Teams who competed in San Juan were challenged by a mystery seafood grilling competition.  Each team that competed was required to choose their competition meat at random - meat provided by Sam's Club.  Some of the seafood provided included salmon, conch, tilapia, octopus, lobster and more!  The winning team, 3 Eyz BBQ, wooed the judges with a teriyaki glazed salmon.
