Episode 181 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast qualifies as an All-Star edition with two of the biggest names in open-fire cooking joining us for some terrific BBQ talk.
First up is Jess Pryles, who arguably knows more about meat from hoof to table than anyone on the planet. The “Hardcore Carnivore” tells us about emceeing the recent World Butcher Challenge in San Diego where teams from around the world showed their knife skills. We also visited with Jess about her summer trip to Europe, the beef tallow trend, best bangs for the buck at the meat counter and her product line that soon will introduce the first Hardcore Carnivore sauce.
Then it’s time to catch up with Heath Riles to discuss his busy 2022, which includes his first Memphis in May World Ribs Championship. Heath describes what went into the victory and what it meant to him on a personal and business level. And what about the apparent concerns about the future of Memphis in May? Heath gives us his thoughts while explaining the expanded content of his Heath Riles BBQ brand and we also toss the avid college football fan a fun question: Who is the Nick Saban of BBQ?
