Customer Service Stories Tell All About Smoking J’s BBQ
Knowing that the not-so-good customer service interactions are more likely to be shared than good experiences, we are proud and grateful for those who have taken the time to share their experiences with us at Porkmafia Canada. (Thank you.)
If you would like to add to our testimonials, or have a question about having wood-smoked catering for your next event, don’t hesitate to contact Jamie (aka Smoking J).
What people say…
The food you prepared for our last function was absolutely amazing. I have never tasted pulled pork that was so delicious and definitely not too sweet. All the side items were delicious and there was definitely enough to feed all the men in attendance and extra people. I was fortunate enough to be able to take some left overs home and my family was thrilled. We will definitely use your catering services again.

Just wanted to send you a little note to Thank You again for coming out to Boyle during the Ft Mc Evacuation. Words cannot express how grateful we were! Our little village of 900 people overnight became home to over 5,000.
These people from Ft Mc were in a state of disbelief and shock. It was with the help of people like you, and your generosity, that made their lives a little bit easier. For many people, they were living in their campers and tents. So the day I got the call from you asking if you could help us feed these people that were upset and just trying to get through the day was such a blessing! I am sure you fed over 600 people and they were all so grateful!! It was a pleasure meeting you Jamie. Knowing there are wonderful people out there like you that would drive HOURS, supply ALL the food, cook an absolute delicious meal and be so humble to do it has restored my faith in humanity.

I’ve gotta say the spread my group received from Porkmafia was FANTASTIC! Jamie came through like a superstar. I was entertaining a group of sophisticated foodies. When they heard the menu was BBQ, I know there were a number of eyes rolled. This was not your “average” BBQ. The flavours were intense. Rather than masking the meat, it truly enhanced it. The mac and cheese, the coleslaw and the baked beans topped it off. Even writing this is making me drool for more!!! If you’re looking to put huge smiles on everyone’s faces, this is the way to go. Good luck Jamie!!!!!

Porkmafia delivered a superior product and I would highly recommend them for your upcoming function. Chef brings the BBQ truck onsite and provides an award-winning taste experience that was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Very thoughtful and accommodating service also. Great to have high quality BBQ right here in Vancouver!

Hey brother i just wanted to tell you how proud we all are of you. The Postmen are truly thankful to have served with you. We are also so thankful for the volunteer work you have done for the evacuees of the Fort McMurray fire.
I don’t know anyone who would drive overnight into a blazing inferno to make sure that starving homeless people have a home-cooked meal!! That in itself, and the many acts of bravery from you and your crew, have earned my respect. I will forever be in your debt and I will have your back until I take my last breath…. I had the chance to meet you in person at a fundraiser that you held at Leon’s Furniture. You treated me and the members of our group with total respect. You fed the hungry, you collected clothes and food and money to keep our drivers filled with gas so we could deliver supplies to the evacuees all over Alberta. All of this you did out of the kindness of your heart and out of your own pocket in the name of brotherly love.
Thank you so much from,
— The Postmen and The Pet Postmen
We have used Jamie and his crew for our sites here for quite some time. He easily fed and served over 100 people during our lunch. We had several types of meat from pulled pork, ribs, and chicken, along with a few sides such as mac & cheese and baked beans. The quality is definitely there. The sauces and rubs used are second to none. All in all the service Jamie provides is professional and friendly, and the food he cooks keeps us coming back for more. I would strongly recommend Pork Mafia for any occasion at any time.

Thanks Jamie. We really appreciate the fantastic job you and your crew did for our youth fundraiser. The weather really put a damper on the event but your food saved the day! everybody there said it was phenomenal!!!! We have orders for tickets next year based on the food alone. Couldn’t have asked for better people or better food. You are awesome, dude. Thanks again!

I just wanted to say thank you and your team for helping to make our event successful! You were able to accommodate this event on very short notice and I’m glad we went with you, we didn’t have to worry about everything. Everyone had a great time, the staff were great and the food was delicious! We’ll definitely use you again.

The best pulled pork around! A big thank-you to the guys at Porkmafia for hosting our customer appreciation BBQ this year. The food was delicious; they went above and beyond to make sure the food was fresh and on time. They were super-friendly and our customers were raving for weeks afterwards about the food. We will definitely be asking you guys to come host again. Until next time, Thanks again from all of us at Bartle & Gibson in Chilliwack!

We had the pleasure of having Jamie Leighton and the Pork Mafia crew cater our wedding this past weekend. Not only was Jamie professional but also a very friendly and easy going person. The food couldn’t have been any better. It was the talk of the town with all the guests the night of the wedding and the days that have followed. We would not hesitate for an instant to refer anyone to Pork Mafia or book them again for another catered event. It made our wedding day that much more memorable to have food that we will remember for years to come. Thank you Jamie for your hard work and clear dedication to your craft.
