It’s been far too long since we visited with Kansas City Barbeque Society CEO Emily Detwiler. We correct that on Episode 127 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast, with Emily giving us her thoughts on the first two years into her run as CEO of the world’s largest BBQ organization. She discusses what it’s been like dealing with a pandemic, plans for continuing education for judges and the new competition pork rule for 2022, which does away with a minimum starting weight.
This week’s other guest has a desire to help newcomers to competition BBQ and is doing so by starting a new contest this fall, for backyard cooks. Nick Davis of Oklahoma’s Double Barrel BBQ tells us why it’s important for him to grow the sport while also raising funds for a worthy cause that is personal to him.
Co-hosts Lyndal and Steve talk about their latest cooking adventures and weigh in on The Field of Dreams baseball game in rural Iowa. Home run or foul ball? They discuss.
