SPRINGFIELD, Missouri (August 20, 2019) – On Episode 31 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast, we heat it up by visiting with the world’s hottest pitmaster – Matt Walker of Boomerang BBQ based in Lubbock, Texas.
Matt and wife Sarah spend most every weekend on the road and they’ve made the effort worth it with 12 Grand Championships already in 2019 and a No. 1 ranking in the Kansas City Barbeque Society Team of the Year race.
Matt tells us he and Sarah enjoy the grind, how their RV is holding up and how much they’re looking forward to cooking the upcoming majors, beginning with next month’s American Royal World Series of BBQ at Kansas Speedway.
On the second half of the program, we re-visit one of Under the Radar teams from early this year. Randy Van Slyke of High I Que BBQ in Gardner, Kansas, is having a tremendous season that finds it ranked 36th in this week’s KCBS standings.
The guys also talk about cooking brisket burgers, tri-tip and gearing up for a couple of Missouri competitions this fall that Boomerang plans to attend. “Might as well take on the best” is our motto!
