On Episode 82 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast, we visit with two pitmasters having outstanding seasons on the KCBS competition trail and the co-hosts discuss their own open-fire adventures along with a sprinkle of sports.
To say Chris Schafer of St. Louis-based Heavy Smoke BBQ has lots of proverbial irons in the fire is an understatement. Heavy Smoke is going back-and-forth with Man Meat BBQ atop the KCBS Team of the Year chase. We visit with Chris about that, plus his line of Heavy Smoke rubs, the decision to open a BBQ restaurant later this fall and his rapidly growing All That For 6 Pieces podcast.
Only in his second year of competitive cooking, Oklahoma firefighter Nick Davis has led Double Barrel BBQ into the top 25 of the KCBS standings. Fresh from a lengthy haul to cook in Augusta, Georgia over Labor Day weekend, we get the lowdown from Nick about Double Barrel’s rapid rise onto the KCBS scene.
Thanks to our sponsors/marketing partners who make the fun possible: Blues Hog, The Butcher Shoppe, Royal Oak Charcoal, The BBQ Central Show, Affordable Income Tax & Payroll, DDR Fabrication, Colaw RV, Code 3 Spices and The BBQ League. Special thanks to Vietti Marketing Group and In the Garden of Eden for supporting our competition efforts.
