For today’s “Teams that Do Know Jack” feature, we are staying in Canada. However, we are travelling over 2,300 km west to Regina, Saskatchewan to meet Rob Reinhardt and Prairie Smoke & Spice BBQ.
Eight years ago, Reinhardt sampled authentic Texas barbecue. Since then, he has built up a catering business and competition BBQ team that is taking Canada by storm! Prairie Smoke & Spice BBQ has made quite an impact with accomplishments including, but not limited to:
- Seven Grand Championships
- 2010 Canadian National BBQ Championships winner
- Over 50 awards won
- Numerous Top 10 finishes
The team is no stranger to competing on the big stage, having previously cooked at the Jack in 2010 and at the American Royal in multiple years. In 2009, Prairie Smoke & Spice BBQ was the top scoring international team at both the American Royal Invitational and Open! The 2009 year also found the team in 1st place overall for the year in the chicken category in the PNWBA as well as the Canadian Top Point Champion!
Everywhere they compete, you can always expect Prairie Smoke & Spice BBQ to be in the hunt!
Rob shares a passion for BBQ that is hard to top. Four years ago, he took the next step by turning his BBQ hobby into a way of life through running a catering business. Prairie Smoke & Spice BBQ now serves up some of the most authentic barbecue available in the Canadian prairies.
I’m looking forward to meeting Rob and the rest of the team next weekend in Lynchburg. Big Wayner’s BBQ Blog wishes Rob and Prairie Smoke & Spice BBQ the best of luck at the Jack Daniels World Championship Invitational Barbecue!
