Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast

Jun 14, 2022

Since we began doing the Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast, it’s become obvious how much BBQ is an international sensation. On Episode 166, we take an audio trip down under to Auckland, New Zealand, to visit with Alex Lawson, host of the most-popular BBQ podcast in his country “BBQ Base.” Alex also is a competition cook and he discusses the booming popularity of open-fire cooking in New Zealand and reveals some of his favorite guests from BBQ Base.

Also, check out Alex’s BBQ apparel website and, if you find something you like, get 10 percent off plus free shipping with the discount code TAILGATE.

It’s also time for our monthly installment of Competition BBQ 101 with Randy Vanslyke of High I Que BBQ and Pro Technology Solutions. In an effort to give aspiring new competition cooks some knowledge, Randy discusses some key points in finding the right contest for a first-time competitor and some things to keep in mind the week leading into a comp.

Co-hosts Lyndal and Steve also talk about Father’s Day Weekend cooking plans and offer up a quick round of sports talk.
