The Smoking Hot Confessions
Welcome to The Confessional, the home of the Smoking Hot Confessions Podcast, second place winner for Digital Media: Audio Series at the 2018 National BBQ & Grilling Association’s Excellence Awards in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Smoking Hot Confessions Podcast is not your everyday podcast. Episodes are released in series’ and each series has a different focus, but always within the world of BBQ!
There have been several seasons already released and more on the way. The first is called ‘Comp Ready‘ and has ten episodes where each episode covers an important topic to know before getting into competition BBQ. Next was the ‘2017 Festival Series‘, where I grabbed my recorder and set about interviewing competitors, promoters, vendors and sponsors at several of the biggest competitions in the country. Thirdly, there is ‘Living the Dream‘. In this series I examine 15 different businesses types within the world of BBQ and interview pioneers and leaders in each field.
Then there is my ‘U.S. Road Trip‘. This is a ten episode season where I explore the differences between Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas styles of BBQ. There’s even three separate episodes recorded live at the World’s BBQ Championships in Houston, Texas!
Right off the back of Season 4 has been the ‘2018 Festival Series‘. With a total of ten episodes, this season sees me travel all around this wide, brown land of ours, eating amazing BBQ and meeting even more amazing people. I gotta say, it’s been a great year!
Most recently, I’ve started releasing episodes in Season Five, the ‘2019 Festival Series‘. I’ll be adding to this season throughout the year as I travel around Australia visiting the best and biggest BBQ Festivals. Check out my Events page, and you’ll see that 2019 is going to be a big year!

In Season 4, I fly, drive, walk, eat and talk my way around Australia visiting some of the biggest and best competitions on the circuit. And I have some amazing conversations along the way!
In Season 3, I hit the road in the good ‘ole U.S. of A. and explore the differences between Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas BBQ. Including hitting up the World’s BBQ Championships in Houston!
