    BBP086-Talking Fire and Wine with Mary and Sean from Vindulge

    Fire and wine make for amazing food pairings, a fact that's confirmed and celebrated in this conversation with Mary Cressler and Sean Martin of Vindulge.com. 
    Mary's sommelier-level training and Sean's passion for cooking with live fire are evident in their recently released book, Fire + Wine: 75 Smoke-Infused Recipes from the Grill with Perfect Wine Pairings. I've known these two for some time, and you won't find a more gracious pair of hosts anywhere.

    John Scharbauer on 138 Years of Cattle Ranching, Progress, and Riding for the Brand

    John Scharbauer on 138 Years of Cattle Ranching, Progress, and Riding for the Brand

    Few people speak to family traditions, hard work, loyalty, and taking care of your community like John Scharbauer of Scharbauer Cattle Ranch and Midland Meat Company. 
    I put the phrase "Riding for the Brand" in this episode title because that's exactly what John, his family, and his staff do each and every day.
    Their Number 5 brand is more than an identifier of ownership. The brand stands for the 138 years of hard work and effort poured into the Midland, Amarillo, and surrounding areas of Texas. It also stands for the progress being made with the Scharbauer Cattle Company's ranching efforts in terms of land management, genetics, and overall meat quality. 
    Together with their retail shop, Midland Meat Company, and their new restaurant in Midland, the MMC Half Acre, the Scharbauers, and their loyal staff members continue to put God, Family, and Community front and center in all they do. 
    In this episode, you'll get a fantastic history lesson on the Scharbauer family as well as a behind-the-scenes look at their storied cattle business. 
    You'll also be treated to some bonafide American truisms and a few stories I guarantee will stay with you long after listening to my conversation with John.

    Talking with Jason Hardee About The Rufus Teague BBQ Throwdown

    Talking with Jason Hardee About The Rufus Teague BBQ Throwdown

    Hello everybody, and welcome to another episode of The BBQ Beat Podcast, I’m your faithful host, Kevin Sandridge – bringing you great stories from the world of BBQ, grilling, and live-fire cooking as told by the people who live them.
    Today’s show features a great conversation I had with Jason Hardee of Elite BBQ Smokers out of Conway, SC.
    Jason shares some of his early BBQ memories, some life lessons, and his mission to share the love of Jesus Christ through his work hosting and attending Cook’s Church meetings hosted at various BBQ competitions.
    We’ll also get into the details behind the KCBS-sanctioned Rufus Teague BBQ Throwdown Series as well as the regional BBQ Shoot Outs that Jason and organizer Bob Johanns put together. These events have been a real lifeline to BBQ competitors and judges during the past year who have been able to continue doing what they love in the face of the many pandemic-related contest cancellations.
    I think you’ll really enjoy this conversation with Jason. He’s a guy that’s super humble, letting his actions speak for themselves. And trust me, by the time you’ve listened to this episode through to the end, your love of BBQ competitions and all the communal goodwill they bring about will be stoked to the max.

    Grilling Up Meat District Delights with Zack Phillips

    Grilling Up Meat District Delights with Zack Phillips

    We’re delving just a little bit into the world of BBQ and Grilling influencers – in this case as the topic pertains to a company called Meat District.
    Understanding the word influencer can sometimes be interchanged with ambassadors, people who companies ask or sometimes contract and pay to promote products or services. I’m sure I don’t need to go into any more detail about what influencers are, but it might be worth considering who they are.
    I talk with Zack Phillips, BBQ and Grilling Enthusiast and social media influencer for Meat District. It's a great audio ride through Zack's journey with live-fire cooking, providing some lessons along the way!
