Corree-Wood Schurman and Brad Day met at the BBQ Pitmasters competition that is televised on the Destination America network.

Corree-Wood Schurman a cook for the team that won the Wing Fling at the weekend’s Sooie’t Relief BBQ competition will appear on TV tonight on the BBQ Pitmasters Grand Championship.

Schurman and teammate Lynnae Beth Oxley will appear on Destination America at 9 a.m. on the final episode of BBQ Pitmasters. The show has Pellet Envy and Butcher BBQ teams making up the semifinals.

Schurman competes in her home state Washington as Rockin’ the Smoke.

Schurman describes herself as ultra-competitive. It’s one of the reasons she enters competitions. However there was another she wanted to compete in the BBQ Pitmasters. “There have only been two women in the competition and we think we have something o prove.” Schurman said.

“I really love to cook,” Schurman said while waiting for the awards presentation Saturday. “I started out wanting to be a pastry chef and then I saw BBQ Pitmasters on TV. “ Schurman said she took a cooking class with her dad.

She said she is a technical cook. “I have a secret recipe but I tend to play toward the judges.” By that she will favor ingredients that are regional, such as vinegar, in some competitions. “Everything I do is the same up to the sauce,” she said.

When Schurman hosts a party it’s a one-person show. “Just show up if I host a party. I like to cook everything.”

The cooking show also matched up Schurman with her boyfriend Brad Day. He delivered the grills and fire rings on location. They met through Oxley when Day asked who her partner was.

Schurman, who attended Western Culinary Institute, anticipates a move to Florida to begin a business in catering. 

“Who doesn’t love barbecue. You don’t cook barbecue in the kitchen. It’s great cooking outside, or cooking at a football tailgate party,” Schurman said.
