Meet Your 2022 Ribbers

Boss Hogs BBQ is the pride of Canadian Ribfests with more Peoples Choice awards than any team in Canada. Our secret? The rub, the love and the God above. Our goal: to serve the best product our industry has to offer with the best showmanship and efficiency on the circuit. Fastest lines in the park.. taste the Smokin Difference!

Gator BBQ was formed in 1983 by a gentleman from Naples Florida by the name of Don Brown (a.k.a. the King of Ribs).  In 2006, Matthew and Louise Smith acquired Gator BBQ and haven’t looked back. It is now a family-run business with children Kurt, Nick, Aaron, and Alexis all contributing to its success.

They now tour Ontario and Western Canada doing upwards of 30 ribfests a year and winning many awards!   We look forward to serving you all! 

We are a small family-owned business. and bring the best in Prairie hospitality to you and your guests. Our recipes and techniques have been developed over 10 years of competition BBQ, having won hundreds of awards and National / World Championships. 

Chef Ollie is a fifth-generation Vancouver Islander with a knack for finding just the right mix of smoke, service, and spice that keeps people coming back.

Grizzly BBQ was established in 2016,  branching out on his own after working as a pitmaster since 2011.

You will definitely want to check out our newest Ribber and make sure you show up hungry as a bear because you might just want to do a little hibernating after feasting on some Grizzly BBQ ribs!

The new kids on the Rib Circuit come with years of experience and hundreds of trophies.  And the trophies have started coming in for Smoke Dem Bones after winning “Best Sauce” for Penticton Rotary Ribfest!
