For Luke Darnell, BBQ is now a full-time occupation. The pitmaster of Old Virginia Smoke, a past KCBS Chicken Team of the Year, has started a catering business and the timing has been good. With the COVID-19 pandemic, Luke’s competition schedule has been severely curtailed in 2020. We visit with him about those topics – plus tips on competition chicken – on Episode 74 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast.
KCBS contest organizer Michelle Higgins also joins us to talk about the challenges of running a contest in these unique times. She has a double coming up this weekend with at least 33 teams coming to Smokin’ on the Osage in Osceola, Missouri.
Meanwhile, the guys banter about their own BBQ adventures – and even discuss some music. We hope you enjoy!
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.
