Battle of the Sauces at the Get Sauced SXSW Pool Party

At the Conduit Get Sauced SXSWi pool party at the Ashton Austin last weekend, adult beverages (provided by Belvedere Vodka) were consumed and there was a little bit of a barbecue competition: reps from various tech companies went head to head with barbecue sauces to go with the sausage and chicken being served at the party.

Sarah Simmons, Food & Wine's Home Cook Superstar, ran and judged the competition. The contestants were: Anthony De Rosa, Neighborhoodr; Michael Galpert, Aviary; Lauren Leto, Texts from Last Night & Bntr; Steve Martocci, GroupMe; Brooke Moreland, Fashism; Steve Jang, Schematic Labs; Alexis Juneja, Curbed Network (aka Team EATER); Rachel Sklar, Change the Ratio and Michael Yavonditte, Hashable.

In the video below, Team Eater describes their very technical business-card recipe strategy, which, alas, did not bring home the title. That honor went to Steve Jang's Korean-influenced sauce. Congrats, Steve!
