A little competition is a good thing. We always try to push ourselves to make the best product we can, and to help us out, we participate with our friends in the local state and national smoked meat competitions. Greg’s Meats has an excellent record in this category. We compete in the Minnesota State Fair and have won fifteen grand champion ribbons, and in the national smoked meat competition we have won another fifteen national grand champion awards. We have won the best in show award, with three state and one national competition trophies for this award, which is the best smoked meat product out of all the products entered in the competition. We have over three hundred awards and counting with no plans of slowing down. Greg himself was inducted into the Cured Meat Hall of Fame in 2007, but he is still seen sitting in on workshops and classes, always looking for new information and better ways to improve our products.
