It’s National BBQ Month and there’s a ton going on to celebrate the occasion at Proud Souls Barbecue and Provisions Kansas City. Richard Fergola, Marketing and Public Relations Director for Proud Souls, stops by Episode 211 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast to give us a rundown starting off with Demo Days the next two Sundays, where folks can learn all about Ribs on May 21st and how to cook on a Gateway Drum Smoker on May 28th. Richard’s Fergolicious BBQ competition team also has been busy and he gives a quick recap and preview of a busy summer on the trail.
We also go back “Under the Radar” to find out more about an up-and-coming competition team. This time it’s a trip to New York City for a visit with John Zervoulakos of Grandpa Val’s BBQ. John says it’s a family gathering and a party whenever Grandpa Val’s competes – and the results have been impressive as well.
Meanwhile, co-hosts Lyndal and Steve recap their own busy cooking weeks and look ahead to the run-up to the Memorial Day Weekend, in both BBQ and sports.
