Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast

Nov 3, 2020

Seven weeks ago, if you had told Brad Leighninger he would win KCBS Team of the Year honors, what would his answer have been? “You’re crazy.” Or something to that effect.

On Episode 90 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast, Brad tells us about his improbable and downright historic stretch drive that propelled Gettin’ Basted to its second Team of the Year championship in three years. Brad discusses what it was like cooking in three time zones this fall and if it was jubilation or relief when he edged out Joe Pearce and Slaps BBQ by a mere two points.

First-time guest Greg Hastie of Tebo Creek BBQ also joins us after the biggest Grand Championship of his career. Tebo Creek topped a loaded 93-team field at Smoke in the Spring in Osage City, Kansas with a dazzling score of 706.

Thanks to our sponsors/marketing partners who make the fun possible: Blues Hog, Royal Oak Charcoal, The Butcher Shoppe, The BBQ Central Show, Affordable Income Tax & Payroll, DDR Fabrication, Colaw RV and The BBQ League. Special thanks to Vietti Marketing Group and In the Garden of Eden for supporting our competition efforts.

NOTE: We are starting to compile show sponsors for 2021. Please let me know if you would like to join the fun at

Have a great BBQ Week! #SmokeEmIfYouGotEm
