So, I just left Costco end it felt like a transaction. So, I let the managers know that that’s not cool. And that we need to all practice hospitality. They were accepting of my constructive criticism. Behind The Smoke travels with me wherever I go. Conversely, just left Valley Farm Market and had the opposite experience. Thank you guys.

Great Podcast about life (and BBQ)

This podcast is great!
I was hesitant to listen because I was unsure if talking about BBQ for an hour at a time would hold my attention, I couldn’t have been more wrong. I now realize I was like one of those people who didn’t watch Breaking Bad because they didn’t want to watch an hour long show about making meth. Derek and Shawn bring everything to the table and present it in a way that is so compelling. True, I have learned many pointers and ideas when it comes to BBQ, but the type of men they strive to be for their families, wives, kids, employees, and customers is phenomenal. The feeling I feel most after completing a podcast is that of total admiration, these guys are living their lives and have raised the bar high for others to hopefully emulate and employ in their own lives.
I am so glad I came across this podcast, I’m a subscriber and will listen to them all. Congrats on nearing 100, Derek/Shawn you both are great human beings and I wish more people lived their lives in the way you do.
Thank you for the stories/info/good-times, Todd Allen

Best bbq podcast

Started listening a few months ago and got hooked. I even reached out a couple time and Shawn and Derek have both taken the time to rerun calls and messages to help me with any bbq questions I have had so far. These guys are the real deal. You will not be disappointed and you will learn real lessons not just about bbq. Love this show and these guys!
