Tailgate Guys BBQ Show, Episode 138: Chris Schafer, John Lindsey

Chris Schafer of Heavy Smoke BBQ and John Lindsey from All Q’ued Up

Chris Schafer confirmed his status as one of America’s premier pitmasters in 2021, nailing down his second straight third-place finish in the KCBS Team of the Year standings with seven Grand Championships. On Episode 138 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast, we visit with Chris about his season, on sharing his BBQ journey with dad Eddie and Heavy Smoke BBQ restaurant celebrating its one-year anniversary.

Also joining us is John Lindsey, one of the premier steak cooks on the planet. John, who along with Ronald Burns forms the backbone of Arkassippi Smoke Live and the #ArkassippiCombo line of rubs and sauces, runs down some new products, previews the new season of BAMA-Q (he’s one) and offers his views of the new KCBS Strip Steak Series and how it might – or might not – affect the established SCA.
