Welcome to Episode 119 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast where we find out about the rising cost of meat and the outlook for the rest of the summer from one of the industry’s experts. Kevin Green of The Butcher Shoppe breaks it all down for us and what it means to both backyard cooks and competition pitmasters in the near and short term.
We also welcome Jeff Scheurer and Luke Legatt, pitmasters of the KCBS competition team Tire Smoke BBQ out of East Liberty, Ohio. Jeff and Luke are engineers for Honda R&D and they discuss how that analytical background helps them in competition Q. After several near-misses, Tire Smoke BBQ captured its first Grand Championship over the weekend on Day One at the 51-team Hoosier BBQ Classic in Franklin, Indiana.
Meanwhile, co-hosts Lyndal and Steve review their Father’s Day cooking exploits, opine on early episodes of the Food Network Show BBQ Brawl and take a rapid-fire look at the sports world.
