It’s an honor to welcome a 7-time BBQ World Champion to Episode 163 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast. Mark Lambert recently won the Pork Shoulder division of Memphis in May for the fifth time, adding to a resume that includes a Ribs championship at the 2017 American Royal World Series of BBQ and a grand championship from the 2019 Houston Livestock and Rodeo. Mark tells us about the latest Memphis in May prize and what it takes to cook a bunch of 23-pound pork shoulders to perfection.
It’s always a good time for “Fergie Time” and Richard Fergola of Fergolicious BBQ helps us preview the Memorial Day Weekend with some great tips for backyard cooks. Richard will be on the road for the holiday, kicking off a two-week stretch out West with a competition in Nevada before hitting a KCBS doubleheader in Colorado next week. What’s it take to prepare for a long outing on the road? Richards tells us.
Co-hosts Lyndal and Steve also talk other BBQ news and notes, recap their latest open-fire adventures and preview their Memorial Day Weekend cooking plans – with some quick sports hot takes thrown in.
