Tailgate Guys BBQ Show, Episode 129: David Page, Travis Bickings

“Food Americana” by David Page

On Episode 129 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast we have a terrific conversation with David Page, author of the new book “Food Americana.” David was a long-time television news producer, covering some huge international stories over the years including the fall of the Berlin Wall. Later, he created the ground-breaking television program “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” and now takes us inside the love of food – including BBQ – throughout the USA.

We also take a trip to southeast Missouri to visit with Travis Bickings, pitmaster of the competition team Shot in the Dark BBQ. Travis tells us about getting into competition BBQ after a 20-year career in the Marines and how his team has taken its game to a new level in 2021 with its first Grand Championship.

Co-hosts Lyndal and Steve preview the big Labor Day Weekend, always a prime time to fire up grills and smokers. They even mix a little college football talk in.

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!
