Junior & The Kid

"Hey ti-gars!" or "How ya doin kid!".   Those were always the greetings I received from my Grandfather (or Pépère as we called him) as I would get swallowed up in one of his big hugs.  He and I always shared a special bond.  He was at all my games, gave me the most honest advice, and was a true role model and perfect gentleman.  He always had the best stories of growing up in central Ottawa, where he carried the nickname 'Junior' much of his life.  One passion we both shared is food.  But the food itself, while always delicious, was secondary.  Pépère's favorite thing was seeing people, family, sitting down together and talking about what is going on in their life, or celebrating a birthday, achievement, or milestone.

From a young kid sitting on the counter in his restaurant kitchen, watching him make meals for his customers, or as a teen, spending a weekend learning to make everything from his famous baked beans (being French-Canadian, these were a staple at every breakfast), to spaghetti sauce and everything in between, cooking together was something Junior and I always enjoyed. And I’m sure like most of our parents or grandparents, he was proud of his food, and every batch of whatever was being made was 'the best one yet!'.

​And what about The Kid?  After being so influenced by Junior, I started reading about food and cooking, watching videos and shows, and really started to care about what I was putting on a plate.  It became more than just making food because I was hungry, but I started enjoying the trial and error of flavor combinations, creating art on a plate, and of course, cooking for others. This rings true in some of the flavor combinations in our BBQ Sauces.

​I believe that food is something that is so amazing, in the sense that it can do so much.  Bring people together, make people happy, help people through a difficult time.  I truly think that a group of people who do not share anything in common or even speak the same language, could sit together for a meal and have an absolutely great experience.  There's not much in this world that we can say that about. 

​Junior and The Kid want to thank you for visiting our site and picking up some of our BBQ Sauces.  While Junior is no longer with us, I continue to share our passion for food, and creating a product that you can enjoy with those you care about.

My name is Barry Kreiser.  I have been doing competitive BBQ for over 10 years competing in both the KCBS and PNWBA associations.  Originally competing as Smoky Butt BBQ, I joined forces with my good friend Bernie Kenny from Smokin Box BBQ.  Bernie Kenny and Barry Kreiser became BK BBQ.  We have won numerous awards including perfect scores in chicken and ribs.  Since the start of BK BBQ TEAM, my wife Lana, friends Terry and Darryl have joined as well.  Two years ago Lana and I were fortunate to compete in Belgium in a KCBS event and have now fostered some strong relationships across Europe through BBQ.

Last year, Lana and I decided to leverage our BK BBQ brand and start a company to market the spice blends that we have hardened and proven out through competition.  We have been selling locally and now through our online store we are able to reach right across Canada.  

We are currently selling two spice blends with a third and fourth blend coming this spring.  

Old Skool BBQ Rub is a well balanced spice blend. It is our All-Purpose rub and its versatility means it can be used on anything that you are throwing on the pit or grill.  We have had great success with Old Skool on the competition circuit.  It is especially good on pork and chicken.
Pirate Steak Spice is a Montreal style steak spice that excels on grilled beef and vegetables.  Pirate also makes for a great Caesar drink glass rimmer.  Our rubs are MSG free and Gluten Free (However we can not guarantee that our products that they have not come in contact with gluten since our facilities are not guaranteed to be Gluten Free).   

Smokehouse BBQ owned and operated by Terry and Sherry Sept opened their first location in Leduc, Alberta over 10 years ago and have since moved their operations to Edmonton operating a full service restaurant and catering & event service, 3 food trucks and competition team providing premium BBQ food and service to the Edmonton area. Smokehouse BBQ has established themselves in the market as the go to BBQ service for fast quality BBQ food and service be it onsite service for any size group, weddings and corporate events or any other special occasion Smokehouse BBQ can deliver.


At Smokehouse BBQ we have trained with some of the worlds best in the business traveling to Georgia to learn from the King Of BBQ Mr Myron Mixion and to Tennessee to 17th Street BBQ the home of Mike and Amy Mills to learn from them and bring their expertise to our operation and adding our spin to our Q!


You need some BBQ, come get you some!

In Partnership with


Lumber Jack Distributor Canada is a wholesale distributor of wood BBQ grilling pellets for wood pellet grills. Proudly serving the Canadian market with the industry's best BBQ pellets!

Lumber Jack BBQ Grilling Pellets are made from 100% All-Natural Round Log Trees, resulting in 100% of the wood's flavour profile. Unlike some competitors which use manufacturing waste, our pellets contain no additives, no binders, no fillers and no oil scents. Just 100% All Natural Wood!

We leave the bark on, just like the old timers used to when they smoked meat and fish. All of our blended pellet recipes are pre-blended before pelleting, which ensures a more consistent flavour. In our blends the base Oak is de-barked which allows the blends wood flavour (Apple, Pecan, etc) to shine through.

Our smaller diameter pellets offer better ignition, more smoke, hotter burn and cleaner combustion with less auger jamming.

Our dealer program offers retailers the opportunity to compete with other brands of wood pellets on the market, while at the same time increasing profit margins for dealers. This overall results in better retail pricing and more selection for consumers.  BBQ PELLETS,CHARCOAL, GRILLS, SAUCES, RUBS, & SEASONINGS
