Founded in 2014, Lucky 19 Sauce Company consists of life partners Aaron Bourdage & Missy Fisher. We got into competition BBQ after a friend invited us out to cook a local rib competition where we used our Sweet Lil’ Devil sauce and managed to win first place, our first time out! Our box number was 19, ..thus Lucky 19 was born.
Fast forward a few years, Lucky 19 has now attended 75 contests all over the midwest. We’ve had some awesome experiences and have a large bbq family with friends from everywhere! Our favorite contest is the American Royal in Kansas City, where we’ve been lucky enough to cook both the open and the invitational in 2018 and 2019. We also were lucky enough to win a Sam’s Club regional contest in 2017, which led to us competing at the final Sam’s Club National tour in Bentonville, Arkansas. We also love our home contests in Minnesota, where we’ve managed to wins at SMSU Smokefest in Marshall, Minnesota in 2018 and also pulled off Grand Champs at the Smokin’ In Steele contest in Owatonna, Minnesota in 2019.
In January 2020, we purchased Quetopia BBQ Supply in Minnetonka, Minnesota. We changed the name to Northern Fire Grilling & BBQ Supply, where we sell everything you’d ever need for BBQ! BBQ is literally our life’s work at this point, …and we love it! Come out and see us either at the store or at a contest! We’d love to say hi!
