On Episode 171 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast, we combine BBQ and music as one of the great personalities of BBQ – the one and only Stretch – joins us. The Food Network personality, BBQ pitmaster, restaurant owner, artist and now rock & roll recording artist has collaborated with the pop/rap/rock band Black Oxygen for the catchy new tune “First Bite” which is a tremendous anthem to smoking meat.
Catch our conversation with Stretch and brothers David and Nick Lyle from Black Oxygen as they tell us about First Bite, a song that is charting on Billboard’s Most-Added list, alongside tunes from Ozzy Osbourne and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Stretch recaps how this fun project came to be and Black Oxygen also breaks some big news about a new project. We’ll also play the song.
Organizing a BBQ contest is not easy and often is filled with stress. Chuck Simpson, who along with wife Jessica is putting on this weekend’s KCBS “Smokin’ on the Osage” doubleheader in Osceola, Missouri, discusses what goes into getting a contest off the ground in our other guest segment. We’ll be taking the Tailgate Guys BBQ team to Osceola this weekend, where it’s projected to be a hot one!
Co-hosts Lyndal and Steve touch on their recent cooking experiences and discuss Episode 2 of Michael Symon’s BBQ USA Show on Food Network.
