Episode 179 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast features one of the hottest up-and-coming pitmasters on the KCBS circuit. Ryan Cain didn’t begin cooking competition BBQ until 2020, but quickly became one of the best in the backyard division of the KCBS. Now Ryan’s Damn Fine Beef & Swine, in its first series in the Master’s Division, is celebrating its first “pro” Grand Championship, at last weekend’s loaded Septemberfest in Omaha, Nebraska. Ryan discusses his BBQ journey and what’s ahead on this week’s show.
It’s also time for the latest “Arkassippi Alley” segment with John Lindsey from All Q’ued Up BBQ and the line of #arkassippicombo products. John, one of the best on the Steak Cookoff Association circuit, tells us about his latest travels and has some out-of-the-box ideas of how to spice up your backyard cooking by throwing fresh fruit on the grill this fall.
