The BBQ Diva Q is in the house!!

By on March 2, 2015


With summer around the corner in a couple of months, I know I am not alone when I say that I look forward to the beautiful warm air and lush green spaces that we have been lacking…especially as we have been trying to survive one of the coldest winters ever. Just seeing a BBQ, I can virtually smell the charbroiled steaks sizzling on the open flames…you know that addictive and beautifully intoxicating smell that I am referring too. The smell where you walk outside and catch a whiff of succulent meat being cooked to perfection except, it’s not your steak sizzling…it’s that of your neighbors! Why be left out in the cold so to speak and deprive yourself of such pleasures? You too can have the perfectly cooked steak, brisket and ribs and make your BBQ the talk & smell of the town.

Capital Appliance & BBQ has teamed up with acclaimed BBQ champion, Danielle Dimovski aka “Diva Q” to teach you how to take your BBQ skills to the next level. Diva Q is one of the most accomplished  BBQ Champions of the World and is one of the most entertaining people you will ever meet”. Diva Q will introduce a variety of cooking techniques on the:

The stunningly beautiful Trafalgar Falls, located in the Trois Piton National Park!!😍😍

These famous twin waterfalls are a 20-minute drive from Dominica's capital, Roseau. It's a short 10 to 15 minute walk along a well-maintained path to the viewing platform, where you can photograph both falls.

Fun fact: The smaller waterfall has cool refreshing water, whereas the tall one is a hot spring.💧🔥

Dominica's natural beauty is endless!!😍
