Without this trip north of the border I would not have learned of the existence of Rockin' Ronnie Shewchuk, Canada's (self styled) "leading proponent of traditional, southern-style barbecue. As chief cook of Rockin' Ronnie's Butt Shredders, he's led his team to more competition victories than any Canadian team in the history of championship barbecues" (also published by Whitecap).
