In 2013 and 2014, under the team name of GQue, we competed in as many professional KCBS BBQ contests as we could compete in. Our accomplishments during that time include:

  • Rocky Mountain BBQ Association’s Team of the Year Award – The top honor for any Competitive BBQ team in our time zone.
  • We won Grand Champion, Reserve Grand Champion or 3rd overall in 69% of the contests we cooked – a ratio that’s right up there with the top 3 teams in the country.
  • Finished in the top 1% nationally in all 5 categories finishing as high as 6th in Brisket – not too shabby for a team from Colorado on the national scale.
  • Winning Rocky Mountain BBQ Association’s award for Top Brisket Cook & Top Pork Cook
  • Perfect Scores In Chicken, Pork, Brisket & 700 Pin
  • Won the United States’ third-largest BBQ contest
  • Countless top-10 placements for our Chicken, Ribs, Pork and Brisket – we also won a perfect score for Dessert and 1st place category wins for Sauce, Side Item & Anything Goes.

With our championship-level BBQ and quality BBQ catering, we will put Denver on the BBQ map—there is no reason why it shouldn’t be. With your help and support, we will do that!


Jason Ganahl – Maestro of Meat

I have a passion for expertly-prepared meat, craft beer, and spirits. When I am not stoking the fire, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, and watching sports.  Growing up and living most of my life in Missouri, barbecue has been an important part of my life. I hope you enjoy eating GQue BBQ as much as I enjoy sharing it with you.

Champions want to work with champions. If you feel you have what it takes to make Denver’s best BBQ, email us at careers@gquebbq.com and let us know why you are so awesome.
