To allow propane cookers in competitions or not??!! Steven Raichlen talks about how to write a book…and more!!

Steven Raichlen, from Barbecue Bible, stops by for his normal 3rd Tuesday of the month segment.  Tonight, we will be talking about the completion of his newest book, the Project Smoke TV show, the best summer cocktails and more.

In the 2nd hour, I will be joined by 2017 BBQ Hall of Famer and owner of Head Country, Paul Schatte.  Paul and I will discuss his background in competition barbecue and how it has evolved over the years.  We will also discuss his thoughts on gas cookers potentially being allowed into barbecue competitions.

Closing the show tonight is the Pitmaster of The American Dream BBQ Team, David Qualls.  We will go “point/counterpoint” on the potential of KCBS allowing propane cookers on the competition bbq circuit.  I will take the “PRO” side and David will take the “Against” side…let the fun begin!!
