Bob Trudnak, sales and marketing director for the BBQ Guru, joins me to talk about the refresh of their Onyx Oven.  We will also get an update on the Guru temp control units as well.

Next, are you a BBQ event promoter or a BBQ competition cook?  Do you want to get some cool gear (if you cook) or get some additional financial support (if you put on BBQ events)?  Emily from Smithfield joins me to talk about their new Grant Program and committed Cooks Program they are rolling out for the 2017 season.

Nine years ago this week, BBS Talk Radio launched in Los Angeles, CA.  One of the original shows to air on that station was The BBQ Central Show.  Creator/CEO of LA Talk Radio, Sam Hasson, joins me to remember the original shows and how we came to meet up and agree to give a BBQ talk show a try.
