Votes have been tallied and the results are official, Chef Mike Teter is the winner of Buehler’s Smokehouse Cook-off Head Chef Showdown held Saturday, July 26th in Buehler’s Wooster Milltown parking lot. The real winners, however, were the attendees, who enjoyed Smokehouse food samplings from chefs representing five Buehler’s Fresh Foods locations.

In addition to bragging rights for a year, Chef Teter’s winning menu of Korean Cherry Hoison Western Style Ribs and Asian Style Slaw will be available for purchase in Market Deli at all fourteen Buehler locations. Look for these new Smokehouse goodies around mid-August.

“We want to thank the community for coming out and supporting our team,” stated Mike Merritt, Buehler’s Executive Chef – Director Prepared Foods. “The food was outstanding, the weather was perfect, and we served an amazing 500 guests – nearly double what we anticipated!”
