Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast

Aug 2, 2022

Imagine rolling into a KCBS competition in a pickup truck hauling one Gateway drum smoker, a table, a 10 x 10 easy up, a cooler and a tub of basic supplies. Then imagine cooking all four meats on that one drum and kicking everybody’s butts for a Grand Championship. That’s what Drew Davis of Arkansas-based Razorracks BBQ did recently at Smokin’ on the Osage in Osceola, Missouri.

How did Drew do it? He tells us on Episode 173 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast. Just for grins, Drew returned to competition seven days later, cooking on his usual Jambo, and won another GC in Miami, Oklahoma. It’s always good to visit with Drew, who also discusses his Razorracks 501 All Day rub, how to use it and where to get it.

Later in the show, it’s time for another installment of “Competition BBQ 101” with veteran pitmaster Randy Vanslyke of High IQ BBQ. Randy offers beginning or inexperienced cooks some helpful tips on how to learn the competition game with this month’s segment focusing on how to evaluate a scoresheet and review a cook.

Meanwhile, Lyndal previews the Tailgate Guys BBQ team’s upcoming trip to Warsaw, Missouri, for Smokin’ on the Harbor and Steve returns to discuss the latest episode of Food Network’s BBQ USA.
