Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast

by

Two regular guys talking to the biggest names in BBQ. Tips, techniques, recipes. We even cook against some of the best in the business in KCBS and SCA on occasion.

The KCBS points season is nearing the finish line and it’s been a great one for Jordan Kirkpatrick from the southern Illinois team Janky Leg BBQ. Following his fourth Grand Championship of the season – one week after winning Chicken at The Jack Daniels World BBQ Invitational with a perfect score – we visit with Jordan on Episode 186 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast. Jordan discusses how he got started in competition BBQ and a unique, late-night first meeting with the tallest man in BBQ who gave him immediate critique on trimming pork butts during the late hour.

It’s also time for an end-of-season Competition BBQ 101 segment with Randy Vanslyke of High I Que BBQ. It’s great timing as Randy is fresh off his first GC of 2022 at the Border Battle in Osawatomie, Kansas. The veteran pitmaster offers some great advice new or relatively inexperienced competition cooks about how to evaluate your season, how to improve during the winter and some tips that everyone can use on winterizing those smokers before putting them away.

Meanwhile, the Tailgate Guys competition team prepares for its final comp of the year, the Boo-B-Que doubleheader loaded with powerhouse teams in Oak Grove, Missouri. We’ll fire it up and give a full report on the outcome next week.
