History was made at the 42nd American Royal World Series of BBQ at Kansas Speedway as Grant Basiliere of Que U BBQ pulled off an unbelievable first, winning both the Invitational and Open portions of the world’s largest competition. How did it happen? Who is Que U? On Episode 183 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast, we learn more about the executive chef from Gurney, Illinois, who is both talented and humble after an accomplishment that might never be equaled.
It’s also “Fergie Time” as Richard Fergola of Fergolicious BBQ checks in for his monthly segment, reviewing The Royal and looking ahead at a busy competition schedule. And bonus guest Greg Hastie from American Fire BBQ stops in to tell us about Boo-B-Que a big season-ending KCBS doubleheader in Oak Grove, Missouri, Oct. 29-30.
Meanwhile, Lyndal recaps the Tailgate Guys BBQ team’s weekend at The Royal and Steve previews one of the best times of the sports year, playoff baseball.
