Tailgate Guys BBQ Show, Episode 136: Sterling Smith, Brent Howard

Sterling Smith of Loot n’Booty BBQ

Sterling Smith of Arizona-based Loot N’Booty has been involved in high-level competition BBQ for more than a decade, also teaching and traveling the world spreading the good word of ‘Q. Now he’s sharing his knowledge in written form. On Episode 136 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast, Sterling tells us about his new book, out this week: “The Complete Barbecue Cookbook: Expert Advice and Foolproof Recipes for BBQ Perfection.”

Also joining us for some steak talk is Brent Howard. The school superintendent from Mountain View, Arkansas, discusses the challenges of leading a school district during times of Covid-19 and how steak cooking has been a great outlet for him on weekends. Brent also is one of the few SCA cooks using a pellet cooker and we discuss that.

The co-hosts talk about their recent cooking adventures, including Lyndal’s weekend leading the Tailgate Guys cooking team into its final competition of the year at Smokin’ in Sugar Creek in Kansas City. The narrative: We aren’t world beaters, but we’re getting better!

Thanks to our great sponsor/marketing partners who make our show possible: Blues Hog BBQ Sauce, Royal Oak Charcoal, The Butcher Shoppe, Iowa BBQ Store, Affordable Financial Services, Arkassippi Smoke Live and The Arkassippi Combo, Vietti Marketing, In the Garden of Eden, Pro Technology Solutions, Gray Wolf Smokers and The BBQ League.
