Local purchase and BBQ, a perfect marriage

Buy local and BBQ, a perfect match

MISE À DAY

On the occasion of the national holiday, why not buy local for our BBQ needs? Now more than ever, buying local is growing and I make it my personal mission to introduce you to some of my favorite products made by Quebec businesses and artisans. I'll show you a few companies and products that I particularly like, but there are several others. Whether it's for spices, accessories, or any other BBQ need, the list of everything done here goes on and on. I suggest you do some research to make great discoveries. 

Accessories  

All-in-one  

Pierre-Luc Darveau has revolutionized the world of BBQs with this accessory for type BBQskettle, winning several prizes, including first place at the prestigious Vesta Award, a worldwide competition that rewards innovations in the world of BBQ. Its all-in-one package (all-in-one) is a 304 stainless steel ring that is simply placed on the charcoal BBQ, allowing you to increase the cooking surface by adding additional grids. It is also possible to attach a rotisserie, to smoke hot or cold, to use it as a pizza oven or tandoor oven; in short, the possibilities are endless. For kettle BBQ owners, the all-in-one is a must. The Quebec region can be proud to have Mr. Darveau as an entrepreneur who changed the BBQ world forever with his product invented here.

When we say BBQ accessory, it is easy to immediately think of cooking tools, but the apron is just as essential. Annie Larochelle and Jérôme Bédard founded Zipmoilou, a workshop that specializes in leather goods. The apron immediately became their flagship product. Whether it is 100% leather or denim with leather inserts, it is the customer who decides the look of this apron, handcrafted with meticulousness in their workshop in Quebec. Your next BBQ will be in style and in complete safety. With pyrography or embroidery techniques, it is possible to personalize your apron as you wish or to put a company logo on it. It is with attention to detail that these two artisans make it their mission to offer impeccable personalized service.

SteelFire pizza 

For lovers of pizza on the BBQ, this plate is an essential accessory. What sets it apart from the others is that it is made entirely of steel; it therefore offers durability and heat distribution incomparable to anything on the market. The secret to a successful traditional pizza is how fast the dough cooks. Steel offers much higher conductivity than any other griddle material on the market, so the SteelFire can reach temperatures of 700°F and cook pizzas in less than 2 minutes! It can be used on any type of BBQ or in a conventional oven, but it is also possible to use it as a plancha. It is designed with Canadian materials and made in Saguenay. Virtually indestructible, this griddle will be the last you buy.

BBQ Makers  

The Daunais BBQ Shop 

What could be better than having your own BBQ made here, in Quebec? It was in 2019 that Dany Daunais decided to embark full-time on making custom-made BBQs by creating La Shop Daunais BBQ. A true craftsman at heart, he meets each client with passion to clearly identify their needs. In the end, in addition to having a BBQ of exceptional quality, performance and durability, the customer will have a true work of art in his BBQ area. Some of his creations are more popular, such as the “chill grill” table, an outdoor table with a grill built into the center, or “the gatherer”, a grill designed for cooking over a wood fire, but what distinguishes La Shop Daunais BBQ from others, it's the customer experience. Whatever the needs, Dany Daunais will make it his mission to meet them and it is with unparalleled professionalism that he gets there. It is with pride that he obtains materials made here, in Quebec, which makes him a rare pearl as a Quebec BBQ manufacturer.

Sugar daddy bacon< /strong>

Jean-Rock Gélinas and Sébastien Proulx are two BBQ enthusiasts who came together to form a BBQ competition team and they won all the honors. It was then that they decided to market their sauces and spices. Since then, the two entrepreneurs from the South Shore of Montreal have never ceased to amaze us with a range of diversified and quality products that should be part of any good pantry. Their success does not stop with sauces and spices; recently, they also launched a line of injection products with a catchy name called “Make them squirt”, sausages with original flavors which they affectionately call “soucisses”, as well as a beer to their effigy.
