We conclude Season 2 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show in Podcast form by featuring two outstanding BBQ conversations while also discussing some holiday gifts from Santa for the open-fire aficionado in your life.

Both our guests on Episode 96 are making their first appearances on the show. Leading off is Rub Bagby, perhaps the most-decorated pitmaster in Florida. The Florida Barbecue Association Hall of Famer tells us about his start in competition cooking in 2003, some of the places BBQ has taken him and offers great advice to the average backyard cook.

We’re also joined by Colby Archie, also known in the BBQ world as “Johnny Briquette” from the southeast Missouri competition team Pit Hustle BBQ. As Colby explains, Pit Hustle is a brand beyond just cooking, it’s also about promoting open-fire cooking in various ways including his growing social media presence. Pit Hustle recently took a tour of eight esteemed Texas BBQ restaurants and he gives us a rundown.

As Season 2 of our show on podcast draws to a close, we want to thank our listeners and guests who dialed up the show. We also give a big shout-out to our sponsors who made the fun possible: Blues Hog, Royal Oak Charcoal, The Butcher Shoppe, The BBQ Central Show, Affordable Income Tax & Payroll, DDR Fabrication, Colaw RV and The BBQ League. Special thanks to Vietti Marketing Group and In the Garden of Eden for supporting our competition efforts in 2020.

We look forward to firing up Season 3 in a few weeks. Please NOTE that we are accepting sponsorships for 2021. Please let me know if you would like to join us at [email protected]
