Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast

Aug 29, 2023

It might go down in competition BBQ history as the “Basted Triple” or whatever clever phrase you’d like to use. But if Brad Leighninger and Gettin’ Basted win a fourth KCBS Team of the Year, last weekend will be a big reason. On Episode 226 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast, Brad joins us to recap his remarkable feat of cooking a Friday-Saturday doubleheader at the Death’s Door Barbecue in northern Wisconsin, where he earned Grand Championship and RGC honors, then making a 12-hour haul to Paola, Kansas, for a Sunday Grand Championship at the Paola Roots Festival. The impressive three-day stretch helped solidify Gettin’ Basted’s Team of the Year lead. Brad also weighs in on a variety of other BBQ topics, including high-scoring and the difficulty of winning, how he deals with outlier results and some new restaurant projects in the works. 

With Labor Day Weekend ahead, we also check in with Kevin Green of The Butcher Shoppe about the state of the meat business, what’s been hot this summer and some under-the-radar cuts to add to your menu this fall. It’s also fun to visit with Kevin, one of the biggest supporters of our show and one of the most-important suppliers of high-quality briskets to competition and backyard cooks across the land.

Lyndal and Steve also break down their cooking weeks and throw in some sports talk as we big farewell to August and look forward to autumn. Wherever you are, we send best wishes for a great BBQ Week!
