The competition contestants were charged with creating an original Shuptrine’s Twisted recipe using one of the Shuptrine’s Twisted Products - Twisted Relish or Twisted Marinade. The competition culminated with a cook-off on Tuesday at the beer market, SturmHaus on Houston Street. Six finalists came prepared with their Twisted recipes. 

Competition grand prize winner, Barbara Golder, won $250. Runners up were Ben Grizzell and Jeff McBrayer for their Twisted McGrizzells Meat and Beverly Jacks for her Twisted Sausage Balls. Mr. Grizzell and Mr. McBrayer won a case of the Shuptrine's Twisted Product of their choice and Ms. Jacks received a three-pack of Shuptrine's Twisted Products. Cook-off guests were invited to taste the finalists' recipes, and the suggested SturmHaus beer pairing, to help select the winner.

Shuptrine's Twisted Products plans to host another Twisted competition in the spring or summer. Shuptrine's Twisted Products are located at local stores in Chattanooga, Lookout and Signal Mountains, Cleveland and Collegedale.
