We are so excited to announce our new National Charcoal Partner – Springbok Braai!      

This partnership will bring many benefits to our members and to our organization.   Several of our board members have used this charcoal in the last 18 months and can attest to the quality of the product.  The charcoal (both lump and briquettes) is made from Acacia wood, a tree that grows in abundance in South Africa.  

 The density of this wood allows for charcoal that burns hot and burns for a very long time.    

The benefits for our members include:

1.  Sponsorship opportunities for 10 member cooks across Canada

2.  Charcoal for our society to give away to our members in various promotional events

3.  Marketing for our organization; to allow us to reach more BBQ’ers across the country

4.  Amazing discounts for our members who wish to buy charcoal directly from the manufacturer.

These specific details will be E-mailed to all our Active members prior to the end of January, so they have an opportunity to stock up on charcoal before the busy spring grilling season.

We are looking forward to seeing more cooks using Springbok Braai!  


Lumber Jack BBQ Pellets

The Canadian BBQ Society (CBBQS), in partnership with Lumber Jack Distributor Canada, is proud to announce a new program that will benefit members of the Canadian BBQ Society.    Several of our board members have been avid users of Lumber Jack for many years, and we’re proud to align ourselves with such a high-quality product. 

Beginning in March 2019, this partnership will offer CBBQS members:

  • Sponsorship of 10 CBBQS BBQ teams:  200 lbs of pellets, shipped free, to a local freight terminal in a major center.   Details will be announced.
  • Opportunity for a 1-time giveaway of twenty (20-lb) bags of pellets, with shipping included
  • Miscellaneous exclusive online specials for CBBQS members through the year
  • 15% discount off all retail product pricing, and special shipping rates, from lumberjackpellets.ca.  This offer is available to all CBBQS paid members.
  • $25.00 online coupon for all new paid members to be used on lumberjackpellets.ca.  This offer can’t be combined with other coupons, and does not apply to sale / clearance items.

We are looking forward to seeing more teams cooking with Lumber Jack! 


As we close out 2018, we’d like to take a moment to acknowledge our 2018 Provincial and Canadian Champions!   

  • CBBQS Team of the Year – Russell & Janice Smella, SmellaQue

Finally, we’ve established a new Rookie of the Year award, awarded to an active CBBQS Member team competing in their first year, in a sanctioned four meat competition, where the head cook is competing as head cook in their first season!  Winners will be determined annually based on overall CBBQS rankings at the end of the year. 
Congratulations to Ryan Durand, Nathan Howse, & Derek Durand from Dos Smokin Bros!  

Congratulations to all of our 2018 Champions!
