Super Saver’s Bob Voss -- better known as “Smokin’ Bob” -- won the 1st Place Grand Champion award in the Boneless Ham –Traditional class category, his second national title, at the American Cured Meat Championships, presented by the American Association of Meat Processors.
Voss prepared his championship-winning ham using the same techniques and hand-selected ingredients he uses when smoking hams for customers at the Smoke House in the Super Saver in Lincoln, Neb. “I don’t do things differently to win awards,” said Voss. “The winning recipe is very traditional, but it produces a flavorful ham that the judges found appealing.”
Voss also won a national Grand Champion award for Meat Snack Sticks in the 1990s. He and the B&R Stores Smoke House team frequently win awards at the state level for a variety of cured meats, including sausage and smoked turkey. Award-winning Smoke House products are available at all Super Saver locations. “Bob is committed to making the best-tasting products he can for our customers,” said Pat Raybould, president of B&R Stores, parent company to Super Saver. “It’s great to see him recognized at the national level for his skill and expertise.”
All entries were judged based on aroma, flavor, eye appeal, color and texture. The competition included more than 600 entries in 27 product categories.
