Great show, but stop gasping for breath...
I found this podcast after Greg Rempe, the host of The Barbecue Central Show, appeared on it. Short, sweet into the point. Good guests and nice content. But, man, all the gasping for breath is getting a bit annoying.
I'm Hooked Already!!
I heard Greg mention this podcast on thebbqcentralshow. I listened to his episode and realized you guys are in MEMPHIS!! I live in Jackson TN and work for the post office in Henderson Tn. Love listening to podcasts on my route. Looked for your first episode and found my man Malcom Reed! Seen everyone of his YouTube videos and use all his rubs! You got a listener for life!!
When are you going to let real fatback all stars give advice on your show?
