Ted Reader on Making it Tasty with Live Fire
No one embodies the spirit of crafting amazing food with live fire better than Canada's Chef Ted Reader. I can't thank Teddy enough for sitting down and allowing me to record this EPIC chat!

Chris Becker of CookinPellets.com
When it comes to BBQ pellets, you can't do any better than CookinPellets.com. Their Perfect Mix and 100 Percent Hickory pellets are my go-to pellets and have been since before the company signed on as a sponsor of the show years ago. In this episode, I sit down with CookinPellets founder and head honcho Chris Becker, who started the company back in 2006 after finding the quality of pellets available on the market at that point lacking. Give this episode a listen. Whether you're on the road, at work, or spending time at the smoker or the grill. I promise you'll be glad you did.
Amy Mills talks BBQ Business and the Legacy of Mr. Mike
Talking with Amy Mills of 17th Street BBQ is always such a pleasure. In this episode, we cover the history of one of the most iconic BBQ brands... and families... in the world. We had a blast talking about the journey she and her Dad, Mr. Mike Mills, traveled together as well as what lies ahead for both the restaurant and their BBQ hospitality consulting business, Oncue Consulting.
2021 Hog Drop Champion John Lindsey
In this episode, I talk with John Lindsey of All Q'ued Up BBQ about his recent Grand Champion win at the 2021 Hog Drop held at the Jack's Old South compound in Unadilla, GA.
John is part of the BBQ Champs Academy family, and aside from being a championship SCA steak cookoff professional, he's won his fair share on the professional barbecue circuit also. It was a great pleasure to talk with John.
Rusty and Anthony of the Pitmasters Podcast
Rusty Monson and Anthony Lujan host the Pitmasters Podcast... and they are on a mission to ignite the passion of cooks everywhere-from amateur to pro-to continue to exceed their own expectations on their journey to Master the Pit! Anyone who loves cooking with live fire and the fun and fellowship of BBQ should make the Pitmasters Podcast a must listen!
Montana Max on Food Sport and His BBQ Champs Academy Series
Montana Max (Max Nelson) joins us to discuss his food sport exploits. It's always a pleasure talking with people like Max who are passionate about what they do. Max comes to competing in food after a career as a professional musician. This transition makes a lot of sense as both ventures have him squarely in the spotlight in what others might see as high-pressure situations.
Max has a brand new series of classes on offer over at BBQ Champs Academy featuring a wide range of backyard favorites proven to delight competition judges of the highest caliber. Just imagine what these dishes would do for your at-home BBQ and Grilling reputation!

Entertaining, Interesting Guests & Educational
I discovered Kevin’s show about a year ago and listen to it regularly. It’s about the right amount of time for my drive home at the end of the workday and keeps my interest peaked enough that I stay focused on the entire discussion. Kevin does a phenomenal job in making his guests feel comfortable and it shows in how freely the conversation flows during the interviews. His guests are very knowledgeable about the topics of their discussions and are very open and willing to share their experience to help the audience. I particularly like it when the guests on Kevin’s show go into detail about the techniques they practice during their competitions or things the professional chefs do in their restaurants. It opens my eyes to things that I hadn’t even thought of. In my option, Kevin’s approach to his show has the right mic between entertainment and education. The BBQBeats Podcast is a regular go to listen in my iPhone.
Great bbq show
Must listen! One of the best bbq podcast out there! Can’t recommend enough to listen to!!
Kevin conducts interviews on a level to which all interviewers should aspire. He is a genuinely great, sharp guy who listens closely to his guests, brings humor, and keeps things moving fluidly. Highly recommended
