3 DOGS BBQYear Started: 2005
3 Dogs BBQ was started in 2005 when Dan, a backyard BBQ enthusiast, saw an ad in the paper for the First Annual Alaska State BBQ Championship. Having watched several BBQ contest shows on TV, he decided that it would be fun to compete and signed up. Dan competed as a one man team (with help from his wife Barb) at the 2005 Alaska State BBQ Competition and named the team 3 Dogs BBQ in honor of the 3 mixed Labs that live with him and his wife . Realizing that he couldn't do it all, he was joined by friends Andy and Joe by the 2006 season. John has been around since 2006 and was named to the team in 2008. In 2009 Joe moved and is no longer with us but we know he is there in spirit. Joel has been a BBQ groupie since 2006 and joined the team in 2010. Also in 2010 Trent, our resident apprentice, was named to the team as well. 3 Dogs BBQ has competed at the Alaska State BBQ Championship, Hide Out Lounge's First Annual BBQ Contest, Big Daddy's Ho-Down Showdown BBQ contest and Block Party, Soltice BBQ Contest "Throwdown in the Downtown", Fair BQ BBQ Contest, Brrr-B-Q BBQ Contest, Fort Wainwright's 4th of July Backyard BBQ Contest, and the Last Rib Standing BBQ Contest. 3 Dogs BBQ consists of Dan Gilson (Founder and Head Cook), Barb Gilson (Wife and Primary Supporter), Andy McDonough (Executive Sous Chef, Runner, and Comic relief), John Brojakowski (Fish Cook, Cook's assistant, Runner, and all around good guy), Joel Jensky (Steak Cook and Hired gun who provides the muscle) Trent Jackson (Resident Apprentice and Great Kid) and numerous Friends and Family.
