Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast

Aug 15, 2023

On Episode 224 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast, it’s a review of the KCBS World Invitational where it was a weekend to remember for Aaron and Christy Stoffer of Man Meat BBQ. Aaron joins me to talk about the team’s Grand Championship, worth $6,000, in the Invitational on Sunday one day after Man Meat scored a whopping 711.4 overall total but had to settle for Reserve Grand Champion behind Smoked & Furious BBQ’s record of 717.71. Aaron talks about his biggest championship to date, how confidence plays a big role in competition success and how the Man Meat BBQ line of rubs and sauces fit into the scheme of things.

We also pay tribute to the often-overlooked KCBS Backyard division as Alan Larrimore from Minnesota’s Wrecking Crew BBQ joins us to break down his team’s KCBS Invitational Backyard championship. Alan and wife Allison are retired Air Force veterans who found competition BBQ through an organization called Hometown Hero Outdoors, a non-profit that benefits and teaches veterans and first responders the art of open-fire cooking. Many, like the Larrimores, go on to compete and others get into the judging aspect. 

Meanwhile, Lyndal and Steve break down their cooking weeks with Steve discussing a Korean short rib process that sounds delicious.
