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 four seasons so far. 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.
Most recently 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!
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!
In Season 2, I explore 15 of the different business models you can get into in the world of BBQ. I chat with leaders in the industry about where they are and how they got there.
In Season 1.5, I grab my mic and field recorder and hit the streets at various BBQ festivals. I record a series of short interviews with various Pitmasters, Vendors, Caters and so much more!
In Season 1, I hit up ten of the best in the Australian Competition BBQ circuit to find out what you need to know in order to get out of the Back Yard and into the Pit Yard. Caution: you’ll never be the same!
