Tailgate Guys BBQ Show, Episode 121: Richard Fergola, Jerry Aguilar

Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast

We hope everyone is having a great week, as we transition from the 4th of July to the heat of summer. Welcome to Episode 121 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast! If you’re a fan of good barbecue, cold beverages and music then the sacred tailgating ground at Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium is the place for you this weekend. Richard Fergola of Fergolicious BBQ tells us about the inaugural KC Barbecue Festival, a three-day celebration of Q. “Fergie” will serve as host and emcee throughout the weekend and while we have him, we find out what’s new with Fergolicious and the KC Grilling Company. We also check in with Jerry Aguilar from Burnin’ and Lootin’ BBQ, the 2019 California BBQ Association Team of the Year. As KCBS competitions continue to lag in California, Jerry and wife Lupe have enjoyed getting their grill on in Steak Cookoff Association events, while making plans for The American Royal this fall in Kansas City. Jerry’s best category in KCBS is chicken and you might be surprised by how many chicken thighs he cooks at a comp. The co-hosts recap their 4th of July cooking and also take a quick lap around the sports world. Let us know if you agree or disagree with their opinions.

Tailgate Guys BBQ Show, Epsiode 99: Dr. BBQ, Richard Fergola, Rub Bagby

Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast

On Episode 99 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast, we celebrate Super Sunday - which also has become America’s biggest food day - with some powerhouse guests coming to us from the epicenter of the football universe in the St. Petersburg-Tampa area. First up from St. Pete is “Dr. BBQ” Ray Lampe, who tells us how the pandemic has slowed his normally hectic travel schedule and about the restaurant business in these unique times. Ray also gives us a game prediction (he would prefer his beloved Chicago Bears be in the big game) and some pointers on how to cook the perfect game-day chicken wing. As the Chiefs chase a repeat championship, two championship pitmasters also are running back a big tailgating experience one year after Kansas City ruled the football world. Richard Fergola of Kansas City’s Fergolicious BBQ and Rub Bagby from Florida’s Swamp Boys BBQ are cooking up a feast Saturday and Sunday at Al Lang Stadium in St. Pete. Get the details as Fergie and Rub give us the party lowdown and trash talk a bit. Meanwhile, co-hosts Lyndal and Steve make their picks and celebrate baseball after the Cardinals stole all-star third baseman Nolan Arenado from the Colorado Rockies. A big shout-out to our sponsor/marketing partners: Blues Hog BBQ Sauce, Royal Oak Charcoal, The Butcher Shoppe, Affordable Income Tax & Payroll, DDR Fabrication and Arkassippi Smoke Live and The Arkassippi Combo.

Tailgate Guys BBQ Show, Episode 83: Happy Grillmore, Richard Fergola

Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast

We bring you the best/most-heartbreaking story of the competition BBQ Weekend - maybe the BBQ Year - on Episode 83 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast. Joe Hewer of Happy Grillmore BBQ team captured first place in Ribs, Pork and Brisket at the Smoke on the Trails in Gardner, Kansas. But a 28th-place finish among 48 teams in Chicken left Happy Grillmore in a tie for the Grand Championship with Joe Pearce of Slaps BBQ as both wound up with a score of 704.5372. Joe Pearce won the tie-breaker, denying Joe Hewer a first GC. We visit with Hewer about the mixed emotions and the history of the Happy Grillmore team. We also catch up with Richard Fergola, GM at the KC Grilling Company in Olathe, Kansas. As Fergolicious BBQ, he’s been on television’s BBQ Pitmasters and Food Network’s Chopped Grillmasters and also is a member of the KCBS Board of Directors. A man of many hats, Richard gives us a wide-ranging conversation kicking off with what it’s like in Kansas City this week on what was supposed to be American Royal World Series of BBQ time. Thanks to our sponsors/marketing partners who make the fun possible: Blues Hog, The Butcher Shoppe, Royal Oak Charcoal, The BBQ Central Show, Affordable Income Tax & Payroll, DDR Fabrication, Colaw RV and The BBQ League.

Tailgate Guys BBQ Show, Episode 51: Richard Fergola, Art Hains

Tailgate Guys BBQ Podcast

Welcome to February and Episode 51 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ Show Podcast. This week, it’s a rare three-guest show as the guys review the big game from all the football, food and entertainment angles. Our featured guest Richard Fergola of Fergolicious BBQ wasn’t at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami for Super Bowl LIV, but he was nearby. Richard and Rub Bagby of Florida-based Swamp Boys BBQ teamed up to cook a gigantic Chiefs-themed tailgate in nearby Hollywood, Florida. Richard tells us how they pulled it off - and about the championship buzz back home in Kansas City. We also welcome Art Hains, studio host on the Chiefs Radio Network, to tell us about what the championship means to a lifelong fan like himself. Art also ranks his favorite BBQ spots in Kansas City and shows that he knows his stuff. There’s a new/old KCBS competition coming to Springfield, Mo., this April. The Ozarks BBQ Fest replaces the 20-year Rock N Ribs BBQ Festival and we get the details from Larry Krauck of the Ozarks Empire Fairgrounds. The $20,000 prize should attract plenty of attention. Thanks to our sponsors who make it all the fun possible: Blues Hog, The Butcher Shoppe, Code 3 Spices, The BBQ Central Show, Affordable Income Tax & Payroll, the Ozarks BBQ Alliance and Royal Oak Charcoal. Have a great BBQ Week! #SmokeEmIfYouGotEm
