More Episodes

We have a powerhouse hour of Tailgate Guys BBQ this week as a pair of champions join us with news and knowledge.

First up is Mark Lambert, four-time Memphis in May champion and owner/operates of Sweet Swine O’ Mine. Mark tells us what a 2020 with few competitions has been like, but the most fun comes when he discusses a Steak Cookoff Association doubleheader he’s hosting in Byhalia, Mississippi Nov. 13. Steak is only part of the story. An ancillary contest will be Whole Hog! How will it work? Mark has answers.

Then we welcome Brad Leighninger of 2018 KCBS Team of the Year Gettin’ Basted back to the show. Brad, with new motivation, is fresh off a big win at a stacked 47-team contest in Savannah, Tennessee which has him in the mix in a mad, 10-or-more team scramble for KCBS Team of the Year honors. We also ask Brad about the weirdness of the season, especially the judging inconsistencies and how teams should view it.

Steve Koehler also is back in the co-host chair and he has a no-holds-barred review of the Netflix show American Barbecue Showdown.

Thanks to our sponsors/marketing partners who make the fun possible: Blues Hog, The Butcher Shoppe, The BBQ Central Show, Royal Oak Charcoal, Code 3 Spices - www.code3spices.com, Affordable Income Tax & Payroll, DDR Fabrication DDRFab.com, Colaw RV and The BBQ League.
