Aaron Stoffer and his team “Man Meat BBQ” didn’t pitch a perfect game - to borrow a baseball term - at last week’s 53-team Grasshopper in DeSoto, Kansas. But they came pretty darned close.
On Episode 17 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast, we visit with Aaron about the remarkable 713.7372 score that Man Meat BBQ posted in taking the Grand Championship at the Grasshopper and taking down some of competition BBQ’s heavy hitters. We also visit with Aaron about his background in Q, why he started competing and how Man Meat BBQ got its name from one of the classic episodes of the TV show “The Office.”
Smiley Mondragon of Smilin’ Dragon BBQ also joins us to talk about a nationwide KCBS Grilling Awareness event at Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World locations this weekend. Smiley will be cooking up samples for the public outside the Bass Pro World Headquarters store in Springfield, Missouri on Saturday.
Also, it’s Memphis in May week. We have an encore presentation
of an episode from earlier this spring with Heath Riles, who’s
pumped up to go after the Ribs title this weekend at the World BBQ
Championships at Tom Lee Park on the banks of the Mississippi
Meanwhile, co-host Lyndal Scranton previews his first trip to Memphis in May where he will help John Dawson’s “The Hogfather” team in the Pork Shoulder division.
Thanks for listening! Have a great BBQ Week!
