Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast

Feb 24, 2021

We are joined by a world champion and an up-and-comer on Episode 102 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show podcast, just a few weeks after their paths intersected atop the leaderboard of a huge early season competition.

Bill Purvis of Houston’s Chicken Fried BBQ has been competing for only a couple of years, mainly on the Texas scene. Bill earned his first KCBS Grand Championship recently at the 118-team Humble Rodeo & BBQ near his hometown. He tells us about his rapid ascent, what the win meant to him and what’s ahead in 2021 for Chicken Fried BBQ.

Bill edged out reigning KCBS Team of the Year winner Brad Leighninger of Gettin’ Basted at Humble. Brad is off to a flying start in pursuit of a repeat and third overall KCBS championship. We ask Brad about his comp schedule, along with some cool things happening with The BBQ League, which is rapidly becoming the premier online source for BBQ entertainment and instruction. He also breaks some news about plans to cook at Memphis in May as part of Team #BluesHogNation
