Undoubtedly, the various cooks featured in Netflix’s ‘Barbecue Showdown,’ AKA ‘The American Barbecue Showdown,’ are some of the best in the field. Their skill on the grill is one of the reasons why they are part of the cooking show. One contestant from the recently released season 2 who certainly left an impact on the audience is none other than Delilah Winder. Her deliciously cooked proteins often earned her praise from the judges and helped her progress quite far in the competition. If you are one of Delilah’s many fans and are eager to learn about her current whereabouts, we have your back!
Delilah Winder’s Barbecue Showdown Journey
Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Delilah became a beloved contestant and was called Auntie Delilah by many contestants and judges. From the show’s start, the culinary expert showcased how well she could cook. For the first four challenges, Delilah’s food was well-appreciated by the judges. She was often mentioned honorably by the judges for her performance, though she did not win any challenges outright.
Delilah’s protein was not cooked well for the fifth challenge when everyone had to cook on barbecue rigs. Both she and Michelle Lundstorm were in the bottom two. However, neither of the ladies was eliminated and progressed to the next round. Thyron “Big T” Mathews partnered with Logan Sandoval in the sixth round. This meant that Delilah and Michelle had to work together to present a delicious meal to the judges. With the gentlemen winning the competition, the duo was in the bottom two, leading to Michelle’s elimination.
With only one round away from being a finalist, Delilah gave it her all to prepare a family-style meal cooked over an open fire using skewers. Unfortunately, she was eliminated and could not make it to the next round. Yet, that does not mean Delilah was absent from the finale, as she returned and assisted Thyron in cooking his final dish. Thanks to the effort put in by the two, he won the competition and was pretty thankful for her help.
