First a disclaimer: Episode 88 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast is a long one, at 69 minutes … but we think it’s worth your time whether you binge-listen all at once, or dial up a little at a time.
It’s always an honor to visit with BBQ Hall-of-Famer Chris Lilly of Big Bob Gibson’s BBQ. Chris is a six-time Memphis in May World Series of BBQ Pork Champion and five-time Memphis in May Grand Champion, an American Royal Invitational Grand Champ, author, chef, television personality, brand ambassador and restaurant proprietor. We ask Chris about his 2020, his biggest rival from his time on the competition trail and about the value of injecting meat even if you’re doing simple backyard smoking.
Joining us for the first time is Greg Rempe, host of the legendary BBQ Central Show. Greg tells us how a guy from Cleveland, a city hardly known for BBQ, wound up with an intense interest in BBQ and went on to start the longest-running, most-downloaded show on the planet with a focus on open-fire cooking. Is there one guest Greg would like to land that he hasn’t? Tune in and find out.
Meanwhile, co-host Steve Koehler gives a review of a visit to Clark Crew BBQ in Oklahoma City and Lyndal Scranton recaps how a Steak Cookoff Association tripleheader went. The guys also make World Series predictions.
