There’s nothing bigger in competition BBQ than winning the World Championship at Memphis in May. Unless it’s winning Memphis in May cooking Whole Hogs, Hot & Fast. On Episode 162 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast, we review the groundbreaking championship that Tim Scheer, Brad Leighninger and Team Blues Hog achieved over the weekend doing it in their own remarkable “Grip It and Rip It” style on special-made Gateway “Megatronn 550” drum smokers. Tim and and Brad discuss the remarkable day which had a rollercoaster of emotions.
Our Memphis in May review also includes Dusty Ware of the Iowa BBQ Store, a first-time participant in the historic competition. Dusty’s team walked away with a big trophy and oversized check of its own, winning the Turkey Smoke portion and he recaps the experience. Dusty also tells us the latest from the Iowa BBQ Store as spring blossoms and Memorial Day Weekend approaches.
Co-hosts Lyndal and Steve talk other BBQ news and notes, recap their own open-fire attempts from the week and take a quick tour of the sports world.
