St. Peters based Heavy Smoke BBQ was named Grand Champion in the 2022 Jack Daniel’s competition

LYNCHBURG, Tennessee – A popular St. Peters barbecue spot has clinched its second world title in less than a year as the St. Louis area lays claim to having the best barbecue in the nation.

BBQ with heavy smoke took home top honors at the 33rd Annual Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue. Chris Schafer and Chad Brewer partnered to launch Heavy Smoke BBQ in 2017 and opened their first brick-and-mortar location in 2020.

A total of 85 grill teams from around the world competed at this year’s event in seven categories: Pork Ribs, Pork Shoulder/Butt, Brisket, Chicken, Dessert, Chef’s Choice and Jack Daniel’s Sauce. To qualify for The Jack, a team must win one of the following awards: a 25-team minimum state championship, a 50-team contest, or one of the nation’s premier barbecue contests.

“This feeling is like nothing else. We’ve been chasing this title for years and it’s just huge for us to get this win today,” said Schäfer. “The Jack is so prestigious and it’s so hard to even qualify for the chance to compete here. Coming here and having this result is just amazing for us.”

Last November, Schafer won the Grand Championship and the Wells Cup at the Kansas City Barbecue Society’s World Championship event.
