Super Saver Smokehouse Scores
Super Saver’s Smokehouse team earned 18 awards at the recent 2017 Nebraska Association of Meat Processors Cured Meats Competition.
The team brought home six Grand Champion awards and three Reserve Grand Champion awards. Team members included “Smokin’” Bob Voss, Smokehouse manager at the Super Saver at 27th and Pine Lake Road in Lincoln, and Adam Meisenheimer , Millard Super Saver Smokehouse manager.
Voss has won more than 200 awards at the state, regional and national levels. For Voss, creating award-winning sausage and cured meats is a labor of love.
“Our team truly enjoys making hand-crafted sausages, hams and other cured meats,” he said. “We’re always testing new recipes and techniques to become better at our craft.”
“We’ve come to expect that our Smokehouse team will win awards every year,” said Pat Raybould, president of B&R Stores. “But we don’t take them for granted. We’re honored that they put their passion and skills to work for our customers every day.”
