Porky FatStacks Competitive BBQ Team and Social Club which was founded with both Albertan and Texan roots by Kerem Kozak, Jesse Bajnok and Ryan Pelzel in 2013. Initially entering Calgary's BBQ on the Bow competition to see how our BBQ held up, we got hooked on the excitement and culture that is the BBQ world and have done a total of 6 events. The team is all about great friends, great food and great times. The "Social Club" is used to refer to our tremendous network of friends & family that eat, drink, and party with us in addition to providing us with extreme amounts of support and guidance.
