We fire up the final month of 2020 with a couple of fun guests on Episode 94 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast, one who is dialed into the top-level of KCBS and another who spreads the word of BBQ through the spoken and written word.

Leading off is Josh Farley, pitmaster of Piggin’ Whiskey O.G. BBQ team out of Oak Grove, Mo. Josh and his fiancee Ashton Christine Smith finished 14th in the KCBS Team of the Year chase and were second in the tricky Chicken category. They did it by cooking legs, something few teams in the Midwest do. How did Josh make it work? He tells us, along with telling the background of Piggin’ Whiskey O.G.

Vic Clevenger is one of the most-entertaining people in BBQ. A professional speaker, stand-up comedian, writer and pitmaster, Vic created ChimneyCartel.com and the Chimney Cartel Facebook group where open-fire cooking ideas are exchanged. Vic has a new, lightweight grill out that sounds fascinating in its simplicity and efficiency. It’s always a good time when Vic pays us a visit.

Meanwhile, Lyndal and Steve review their Thanksgiving cooks - what worked and what didn't - and what’s coming up in the run-up to Christmas.
