Cooks will compete in four categories: appetizers, sides and salads, entrées and desserts. They will also be competing for the coveted People’s Choice Award.

Jay Gravholt and Cale Feller are representing Avera at the competition. This is the second year that each of them have competed in Gourmet Guys. This say they hope to beat Sheriff Mike Milstead, who they say always wins! They’re bringing their Kahlua Pork Sliders with a Hawaiian slaw. Feller says they’re stepping up their game this year with bolder flavors and a homemade pineapple barbecue sauce.
