September 15-16: BBQkampioenschap van het Waasland


Our team!

Geert Verreydt & Jan Casteels

Starting off as Colleagues (ICT) in 1998, friends ever since, scuba diving buddies for many years and long time ski mates,

we found a new shared passion in barbecue. After five years of BBQ-competition throughout Europe and at The Jack,

organizing our own contest in Diksmuide and one year at the judges' table it was time for a new challenge.

Mates & Plates Barbecue Team was born.
