When we had Megan Day of Burnt Finger BBQ on the show earlier this spring, she hinted at a big television project but couldn’t yet disclose it. Now she can. On Episode 117 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast, Megan tells us about Food Network’s BBQ Brawl, Season 2, where she’s one of 12 contestants with celebrity coaches Bobby Flay, Michael Symon and Eddie Jackson. It debuts Monday, June 14.
After visiting with Megan about her growing role in giving BBQ positive exposure, we go “Under the Radar” to find out more about an up-and-coming pitmaster. This week’s guest is Kevin Heese of Kansas City’s Weekend Bum BBQ. Kevin tells us his journey into the competition world and a recent top-10 finish in a big field of heavy hitters.
As the thermometer climbs across the land as summer arrives, co-hosts Lyndal Scranton and Steve Koehler talk about their own recent grilling experiences and what’s on tap in the week ahead.
