Tailgate Guys BBQ Show, Episode 118: Ryan Cooper, Chuck Simpson

On Episode 118 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast, we visit with one of the insiders of BBQ media as Ryan Cooper joins us. Ryan and Sean Ludwig co-produce The Smoke Sheet, a weekly, free electronic newsletter that keeps its fingers on the pulse of the BBQ industry with the latest national barbecue news, upcoming events, recipes, media links and more. 

Did you know there are high school BBQ teams? We learn more from Chuck Simpson, a high school teacher in Osceola, Missouri, where he is a coach of the high school BBQ team and youngsters can eat their homework! The students learn the ropes of cooking over open-fire as a sanctioned member of the National High School BBQ Association and Missouri High School BBQ Association.

Meanwhile, co-hosts Lyndal and Steve talk Father’s Day cooking and gift ideas plus golf’s third major of 2021, the U.S. Open.

Thanks to our sponsor/marketing partners who make our show possible: Blues Hog BBQ Sauce, Royal Oak Charcoal, The Butcher Shoppe, Iowa BBQ Store, Affordable Income Tax & Payroll, DDR Fabrication, Arkassippi Smoke Live and The Arkassippi Combo, Vietti Marketing, In the Garden of Eden and The BBQ League. Special thanks to Marty “Sign Man” Prather and Domino’s Pizza, an “Official American Royal World Series of BBQ” sponsor of our team.

Have a great BBQ Week!
