Spitting BBQ Knowledge and sharing entrepreneurial experiences

I’ve been listening to the podcast for about 4 months now after meeting Anthony at thermoworks while in SLC for work.

I really enjoy the plethora of guest they bring on from the competition bbq scene, SCA’s, bbq restaurants or bbq influencers. I appreciate the engaging conversations touching on experiences, cooking techniques or product preferences. For any one in the bbq scene, give this podcast a listen.
