We’re used to bringing you two great guests each week on the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast. On Episode 28, we deliver a triple header of excellence.

Ernest Servantes is a Texas cooking icon, a world-class chef who combines those skills with open-fire cooking and a charming personality to boot. You might remember him from winning Food Network’s “Chopped Grillmasters” and for his time on Destination America’s “BBQ Pit Wars.” You will enjoy our conversation with “The Pope of BBQ.”

Annella Kelso is the Business Development Manager for Snake River Farms. She’s known as the “Meat Maven” for her knowledge of all things protein and she delivers in a big way, explaining what sets Wagyu-grade beef apart from Prime and other cuts.

Chris Schafer of St. Louis might be the hottest man in competition BBQ. Last weekend, Chris and his dad (forming the team Heavy Smoke) swept grand championships in Effingham, Illinois and Collinsville, Illinois. The first win gave him the Magic 7 of the season and an automatic invited to this fall’s Jack Daniels Invitational. We lead off this week’s show talking to Chris about his amazing season.

Thanks for the listen and, as always, have a great BBQ Week. #SmokeEmIfYouGotEm
