The Beijinger 2013 Burger Cup is back, and it should be even better, with more flame-broiled juiciness than ever. Last year, Home Plate BBQ claimed the crown, going down to the wire with Brussels (now The Local) for the win. Can they defend the title this year?
This year, we’re doing things a little bit differently. Our bracket was based on last year’s final voting, after which we included a list of worthy newcomers. We’ve removed all international chains from competition. China competitors are fine, but those international interlopers are out. Also, this year, we’ll have three rounds of voting, followed by a live cook-off in August, where the Great Eight will cook-off, head to head, with final voting taking place on site. Who will crack under the August heat, and who raise the cup?
You will decide. It’s a public vote and the first round is live right now. We’ll be offering prizes to you, our readers, as the competition goes on. Our downloadable bracket will follow in a later round.
Click here to begin voting. May the best burger win!
