Aaron Black, pitmaster, states, “BBQ makes you think of family and friends - just like Reser's famous potato salad and cole slaw. We look forward to sharing the Reser's story with barbecue fans around the country this year."
It is only natural that one of the country’s top barbecue competitors hails from Kansas City – a city known for its barbecue. Competing since 2001, Rod Gray, pitmaster has participated in more than 350 events from coast to coast. To date, Pellet Envy has won seventy-seven championships and has ended ten straight seasons as a top nationally ranked team. For more information visit www.pelletenvy.com.
Rod Gray states, “There is no star without a great supporting cast. For Pellet Envy, great salads and side dishes from Reser's are the perfect pairing for our award-winning barbecue."

Pork Barrel BBQ founders, Heath Hall and Brett Thompson, started the company out of the basement of their houses, selling their award winning BBQ sauce one bottle at a time. Today, their barbecue sauces and spice rub is carried in over 3,000 stores in 40 states. Throughout their journey, they have stayed true to their mission – to unite the nation through the great tradition of BBQ, and bring bipartisan flavor to your next meal.

"Reser's Fine Foods is as synonymous to the American Dream as potato salad is to a barbecue," said Heath Hall, president and pitmaster. "We are honored to have Reser's as a sponsor of the Pork Barrel BBQ competition barbecue team because they helped pave the road for aspiring entrepreneurs who, like them, started in their home with the hope of attaining a piece of the American Dream.”
These teams will be competing in events all over the country this BBQ season! Look for the "Sponsored by Reser's Fine Foods" banners around their booths and pick up a coupon or a sample of our delicious potato salad. Good luck to our 2012 Teams!
