Burger 21 chef to compete at Rachael Ray's Burger Bash in South Beach

Tampa Bay's Burger 21 will be on one of the hottest tickets at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami Beach this year.

Front Burner Brands corporate chef Shane Schaibly has been invited to compete in Rachael Ray's Burger Bash for the already sold out Feb. 22 event, going head to head with 40 burger titans from around the country.

Under sponsorship from Heinz, Schaibly and the Burger 21 team plan to serve 2,000 Tex-Mex sliders and more than 200 pounds of sweet potato fries (paired with the toasted marshmallow sauce Burger 21 fans are gaga over) to thousands of expected attendees at this year's Amstel Light Burger Bash.

Other participants include heavy hitters such as Bobby Flay and Masaharu Morimoto. Schaibly better bring his A Game to this walk-around event held in white tents on the sand behind the Ritz-Carlton, South Beach hotel if he hopes to dethrone Michael Symon from last year's Prime Minister of Patties position.

For more information and a schedule for the festival, Feb. 21-24, go to
