Johnstones Barbecues & Parts
Dave came to me shortly after he started competing when he realized he couldn’t cook all four competition meats on just one cheapo cooker. We gave him his first Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker that year and several others over the years. As the largest BBQ retailer in Canada we loved his passion for great bbq. Last year we partnered with him to get the new Bad Ass BBQ Pit from Texas. Bad Ass BBQ gives us great exposure and we believe in sponsoring a true Southern BBQ ambassador.

Dave’s attention to, and demand of, a quality product is a perfect fit with our goals as a meat retailer. We display the trophies and ribbons Bad Ass BBQ wins with great pride and we recommend them to our friends and customers without hesitation.

Dave came to us when he needed graphics printed for his new Bad Ass BBQ cargo trailer. I wouldn’t normally sponsor a BBQ team but I liked this guy. He promotes us to other teams for their printing needs and to the public in their competitions. We have also seen our logo in their television appearances.

Impact Canopies Canada
I first had a meeting with Dave at his local Legion when I was trying to break our canopy business into the Competition BBQ market. We became friends almost instantly. Little did I know I was going to end up sponsoring him. Since that first meeting we have sponsored The Canadian Festival of Chili and BBQ he co-produces and we have had Bad Ass BBQ come and cater our summer staff BBQ. The Bad Asses are good people and we are happy to support them.

I received a cold call from Dave with a request for a meeting to discuss Wiberg Spices sponsoring his BC BBQ Championships competition and we ended up sponsoring Bad Ass BBQ. For us it is a good fit for our company. We specialize in the design and custom blending of seasonings and spices for the meat, poultry and general food industry. Now Bad Ass BBQ uses the freshest and best spices in what he is so passionate about. I know our company will realize rewards from our partnership.
