"Brendan and I'll kind of go through him and randomly select one for one book for the Steven Raichlen book, Grilling Vegetables and then one for Bill Gillespie's new book Cooking. Hot and fast on 312981 72 100. You can still send that in and and maybe win a book, right? And so when it comes to entertainment, you know, books are great, right? But everybody likes movies right if you could turn books in the movies. I think the world would be a better place going out to the well recognized entertainment capital of the Midwest, Peoria, Illinois to the man behind so much on the entertainment world, his hand on the pulse of all of it blockbuster, Blake Stubbs. Welcome to the show. Oh, thanks for having me day and it's been a while. It's been a minute since we've been able to have a quick chat, but you know what? The movies they're kind of bad, so it's a little bit exciting. It is exciting. So it's one thing for us not to be able to get not us like you and me, but necessarily like the public. The world may be to be able to get out to the theater as a group and get into the theater and enjoy things. But It isn't as though it was going on. And we just all felt like we had to stay hunkered down and couldn't go and do it, like Hollywood has kind of been on pause to in a bunch of different ways, whether they're releasing things. Online. For some of these blockbusters people are looking for, or just kind of holding onto him, waiting until sort of the smoke clears and being able to get in there and do that. So as a guy who knows this and anticipates it as much or probably way more than most people and wants to share like what other kind of cool things that are going to be coming up, Hopefully in summer on the movie side Well right now. I mean, we're kind of in the middle of what would be the start of the blockbuster season around this time. They're always be at least a couple of titles out to kick things off and get it going, But we're coming up into the next few months. You're gonna have at least one in some cases to movies that are gonna be dropping each week as the studio sort of reorganized their schedules change up everything, which, in some cases, one of the movies, I'm gonna mention here has had probably three or four different changes on so How they're locked in. They've got everything set. And the hope is is that if everything stays under control and moving in a positive direction, the movies they're gonna be more common outing for people right now, If you wanted to, you could go out and see a quiet place to or crew, Ella. Which are to you know, big titles being released and a quiet place to actually, I believe took in about $48 Million. If I read that correctly over the long weekend here, so people going to the movies, and that's a good thing. Obviously, in many cases, check and see if you can get reserved seating. Make sure you're going and that it's safe. But to be quite honest with you, I've been a couple of times over the last Oh, I would say month and a half and both times have been excellent experiences that were, you know, staffing side and all that. It's all good. Okay. Good. Good. Good. You know, in the movie theater on like, maybe a restaurant doesn't need as many people can have one or two kids and a red velveteen vest that can run like the whole theater. All they have to do is man the concession stand in the ticket thing. And you could do it. So you don't need a ton of people. You mentioned a quiet place to on our producer, crack producer, spending all the hits and on the bumpers and everything Brendan was mentioning. I talked him off. The air was excited you were gonna be on, he said. He's looking forward to seeing quiet place, too. And I said, Well, what did you think? A quiet place one. Now he hasn't seen quiet place one, and I said, Well, Blake may talk about it Spoiler like he's like, Well, he knows what happens. We both agreed that the fact that there is a quiet place to means that the main character's probably at least a critical mass of them probably survived. I really liked Like the first of my kids didn't like it For whatever reason they thought it was. I don't know if it was just the whole thing because it maybe wasn't enough going on because it was really kind of one of those understated things that for the listeners Who haven't seen, like quiet place. Wasn't it like the whole movie? Nobody talked. Essentially, yes. It had very little actual spoken dialogue due to the circumstances of the MacGuffin. I guess you'd call it the monsters monsters that human beings are trying to avoid. And while they're also simultaneously trying to survive, just, you know, with food and stocking up and doing what they can. One thing that I will give a quiet place, one over most of the movies I saw in the same year that it came out. Is that as a packed house crowd, you know, was sitting getting ready to watch that movie. There was a lot of noise and you know that the hustle and bustle of now this is a couple of years back where I was worried that it was gonna be a disruptive audience. You know for the movie. It's kind of hard to see the movie of the audience justice tuning out. They're not really into it. After about 10 minutes, everything changed. There's a very specific thing that happens in the movie that sort of shut everyone up..

"Studio on Memorial Day. We're talking a lot of food. A lot of great beverage is making a lot of people hungry. We had Justin Green up from Weber. Steven Raichlen talking about his new book, Bill Gillespie from smoking Hogs. And for those books, people are texting in pictures of what they're making today. 312981 72 100 At the end of the program, we're gonna give away one of each of those books. You can read about it, but at some point you're going to need to get the equipment to get it done. And when it comes to Chicago, and people know that from all over the place, I'm sure people make a pilgrimage for the taste buds from all over the place is backyard. Barbecue in Will. Matt Dan. Marguerite, Those guys have really what is a Taj Mahal for the taste buds? Not only do they have all the equipment from so many different great things that we've been talking about today but also classes and books and everything else is just a very cool place to be. Dan is on the line. Dan Happy Memorial Day. I think you Dane. Good to talk to you. It is good to talk to you, too, As we get to the point where things are kind of opening up. This is the kick off the summer. You know the people that come to backyard barbecue You guys were doing doing it. You know you're around all day could be a blizzard. Everybody still doing it. But for the general public, this is kind of when they mobilized, right? It is. I think it's a true sign of the started grilling season, even though I like to think it never ends. I think a lot of people's minds. This is it. A lot of people are grilling today. We had way had the folks from Webber on Bilge lest we talked about the smoky mountain we talked a little bit about. I mentioned it. You know that and for all the people out there that are trying to limit that barbecue. And grilling enthusiast in their family to just one thing, right? You know that. You know that you can't have enough and they all do different things. I've got maybe 10 different things. I'm sure you have a bunch as well. So talk about some of the different things just kind of the the range that you have it back yard. Well, The rain's like in charge. When you talk about weather, I think the Weber cattle which we shall in a number of shapes and forms, but terrible cooking. We shall the weather. Obviously three iconic piece and we sell Haiti Basically, shall he k grow? We saw the good one line of smokers. So you know, we really sell a lot of chuckle grills now, whereas in past years you know, we vice will probably more dance girls, which was still do but I think I told you to feel like the last five model that you know. It's like charcoal just keeps going up. Charcoal grilling. I should say yeah. You know, people had a lot of time at home. So there, you know, I don't know why they ever left. But it seems like they're coming back to it, You know? Yeah, well, you know what? I got to see that too for and I was many years ago before I was in the in the crowd of initiated and enlightened. I used to think well, gas girls the way and there's nothing wrong with a gas grill, and I would encourage everybody to get Get one of each or at least you know a couple different things because the gas girl has its place. It's fast. You can do certain things on it that you don't have to get the you know the other the charcoal grill all ready to go. But really, though, and Dan, you'll share this right to the charcoal, you know, for the flavor that it gives its worth the extra time. Yeah. You know, if you've got a charcoal chimney in a certain things are not going to take that bath. You You can use lump charcoal, and it likes a lot faster than for cats just because of the own natural state and No. You gotta get your gas girl for 10 minutes anyway, What's another five minutes? I think, you know. And if you have the chimney there, too, then you don't have to use the lighter fluid. That was one of the things that I always hated. Cause I would just squirt lighter fluid all over everything my stuff. I was surprised. It tasted like lighter fluid when it comes the lump charcoal and this is where you guys really stand out as probably in the Midwest. Maybe even like a greater part of the country is like for big green egg like you guys are the go to place for that. That's where you use a lot of that. That hardwood lump charcoal and the results that you get off an egg. Is just so much different than maybe some other things. I think you could do a bunch with a different things. But talk a little bit about how special the eggs are. What I love about the egg is you know today If you're hanging out your backyard, you can smoke ribs all day. You know, Tomorrow you could find out the steak and cook it a 700 degrees and share the nicest ache You'll have anywhere and then you could use it is a wood fired pizza, too. So it as very you know, a lot of versatility out, which is nice and temperature control is very precise. So a little bit of a learning curve, but I tell people don't start with $150 tender line by a $5 pork tenderloin and try that, And there's a bunch of sizes, too, so you don't have to necessarily think because they are heavy right and it may not fit. You know everybody sing. But there's like the You know the minis and you know all the way up to something that's really, really big. You could start wherever you need to. Yeah, I took. I took my mini Max on vacation last year. My wife and I now at home, so I don't get a lot. Uh, I took. I took the mini max Toe Michigan last week or last summer for our vacation. I cook for 60% off all week long. It was great. I saw you guys. I saw those vacation photos that you posted of you and the mini max writing Space Mountain. You took it to Disney world. I'm surprised they let it in. You guys They're looking and well, before we let you go..

"Best selling author Pit master world champion with both the Jack and American Royal in his trophy case for his team smoking hogs out of abject in Massachusetts, Bill Gillespie, Welcome to WGN. Thanks, Jane. Happy T O be here looking looking forward to talking a little barbecue with you. It's great to take a little time on your Memorial day, which is one of those holidays. Of course, For all those great reasons, recognizing the sacrifice of men and women in uniform, but the way we celebrate Oftentimes with food and with barbecued Now, Webber is it's really like our hometown team. And you have been one of those great ambassadors for the Smoky mountain for all the people that are listening right now, looking at that cattle In their backyard and fill him in on the smoky mountain. What is it? What is it about that that they will love? What will they appreciate? And what is it that you love about it so much? I mean, for one. It's the price point it Zaveri affordable for the backyard guy. And and also it's you know, the it's used in competition pretty widely. It's it's In my opinion. It's pretty easy to use. You know, As soon as you fired up, you get your temperature way. You want it and just two events, and basically it sits there then. You know, probably maybe 10 or 15 degrees plus or minus And I mean it's It's pretty rock solid. You know, As far as smokers go, you think about the books that you've done best selling books and often times Weber. The Smoky Mountain is front and center in it, but one of the things that we love about you, Bill Gillespie is is just like so many of the people that are listening that just started out in loving barbecue wanted to make better barbecue. Whether it's in their backyard. Very few people ever get to the biggest stages on the competition side. Like you did. But before you got into writing the books and all that, like share with the listers like, How did it all start for Bill Gillespie? So Yeah, well, we're gonna undercooking started at the young age, my backyard with my dad cooking on untold Weber Kettle grills cooking with charcoal and stuff, And then it just kind of progressed from there like as I get older. You know, I go away on the weekends go camping with my buddies and you know I'd end up being the cooked. We cook over an open fire or whatever, and it's just kind of kind of evolved from that. And you know, I slowly get into competition Barbecue and, you know, I had a non opportunity to write a few cookbooks and and here we are. That's kind of the The reader's Digest version of it, I guess right, Well, I mean, I guess right. It's an entire career like in a moment, and there's some of those moments that were pivotal in there. And, of course, those great career highlights. You know, with those top championships now, the book the most recent book, Because I think if you not only as you know, a champion in the pit master and author, but also kind of an educator, and a lot of different ways in this book is hot and fast barbecue on your Weber Smoky mountain. And for listeners out there, they're gonna say like, Hey, You know what? We've just been here in low and slow for barbecue forever. People are listeners on the competition. Signed know that Han fast for last few years has been one of those things that has been doing very well, and people are curious about it. So I kind of feel people in Bill if you can, like what is hot and fast, so hot and fast. In my opinion, it's basically anything over 300 degrees cooking. You know between that You know, 304 100 degree area and you know it's a lot different from low and slow loan so you can just kind of like, said it. Forget it. Just let it sit there and do its thing with the higher temperatures. She gotta be a little bit more kind of aware of what's going on because things can Go crazy and a matter of moments, so you kind of you know you constantly look, and I know what one slow. It's like, taboo. You don't you don't look when you're cooking, right, right? And but with hot and fast, it Z part of the process, You know, you kind of if you're cooking a brisket, hot and fast or ribs, hot and fast, for example, you know? You want to be looking at it? You know you're cooking at 3 25 3 50. You're you're moving stuff around. You have your water pan in there like a small water trade and moving things around and just sort of making sure that things aren't gonna like urn on you and whatnot. So it's ah You know, you have to be kind of aware of what you're doing. And I think this book is going to help people with that. You know that process if they're a little nervous about getting into the hot and fast cooking, I think this book is definitely gonna help me. It's a little bit. It's like, risk and reward, right. But they're in good hands with you because you've been there. You know what to do. And one of the rewards. You know, the risk is you gotta pay attention a little bit more. The rewards his time right because you can create things that are competition level quality, certainly like hero of the backyard. And to do ribs. Let's say in like 2.5 hours, brisket in a little over four hours. I know there's people listening that thinks that's not possible. But it is right. Bill absolutely is possible. You know, I mean, you can You can throw a brisket on at noon time. And yet you're eating dinner at six o'clock, you know? Wow. So it Zraly nice for people that don't have the time T do low and slow. You get Justus Good of Ah, end product hot and fast as you do low and slow this book, and you've written a lot of books. It is a beautiful book. Talk a little bit about it. The photography in it. You've got one of the top photographers in in all of photography, and so you really assembled You know you've got yourself Bill Glass be world champion. But you've got an a team on the book side to absolutely Paige ST Publishing. You know, they've been awesome to work with Ken Goodman Photography. He's done all my books and he is an absolute magician. When it comes the food photography. I mean, he's he's taking what I'm cooking my finished product and he's you know, turning it into these masterpieces, and he's absolutely amazing to watch and You know, the whole process with was awesome. Um, you know, West started writing it last summer last late spring early summer, And I mean last year, you know, with with covert and all that it was the perfect opportunity for me to write a book As I was working from home, I had Time kind of throughout the day here in their tea. Oh, You know, toe do some recipe testing and you know, it actually brought my love of barbecue back to an even higher level. If you can believe it really, absolutely does.

"Privy to a name or knowing if it's a chain or franchise or not or just independent. Do you think the general. John jane barbecue eater would know if they're at a chain or an independently owned position. I i think there's two factors to think that i think the the market i can tell you what the ratio is but i think it breaks into two camps. I think one camp probably doesn't know and probably doesn't care you know what they're looking for. Is you know this looks nice. And it looks like it's clean while lead or you know there's nice table tents and things like that and this is what i like and then i think there's a whole another segment of barbecue consumer who A if they think it's a chain going to already be negative Predisposed to are they go in and later find a has the chain they actually enjoying it up to the point where where they say always say. This is a chain right. I don't like as much as i used to. Because in their brain the chain has a has a big impact. One of the curious things that's been happening in the barbecue world lately just in the past ten years or so east not matter who was back in the kitchen right. And who is back manning manning the pits In the back the the the the cooks weren't really famous. If you think about the barbecue empires from twenty thirty years ago. It was the restaurant to zoos names or on that but just in the past ten years with the rise of kraft barbecue. There's been this returned to all the intensity and into wanting to you know. Know your pet master and have a face on there so you you've got this interesting dynamic where the story is becoming very important. And i think that's sorta started work yet to change a little bit and what you've seen is a lot a lot of the big chains that were founded by somebody. The founder went away and then came back. They actually brought the founder back in. So i think. I'm thinking sunny. Tillman with with sonny's barbecue and dave anderson famous. Dave of famous dave's both of them left. Businessmen came back because it's good to have that face of the person That that's a frie- the chain because people want that kind of authenticity in that kind of understanding who's behind this name. Who's doing the cooking. Do you have a thought on who you think. The most underrated barbecue chain is out there. Currently and who the best is now. I really don't. I don't have a the big chains the really large ones. I mean that's one of the the the dynamic change restaurant it's going to be you're not gonna really get usually just terrible food poisoning everything like that. It's usually going to be pretty pretty good quality but it's not gonna be great quality certainly if you look at my top. Fifty list differs living. There's not a whole bunch of chains on. They're the ones that are on. There are the ones that are call early stage. Prochains i think of Pat martin of martin's barbecue joint which has about. It's i think he's closing the ten restaurants in a couple of states. Now and that's one of the ones that i would definitely in my definition of chain And actually with southern living we've been going back and forth the editor's trying to codify definition a little bit to try to figure out what what qualifies as a chain martin's barbecue joint would but i still think they do a lot of things right and they have a lot of of of character and so i think that's one. I'm not sure if it's under any. Because i think it's pretty pretty highly rated but certainly of what are considered the chain. That's where bubble store the top of a of of molest dicky's the biggest at this point. It's a can't ever keep track dicky's as either. The biggest is certainly. I think has it's been expanding rapidly overseas so definitely has like the most countries under its belt for a long time Sonny's which is based in. Florida was the biggest thing. Dickey's is now a clips them Famous dave's is is growing and it's been Private equity money or actually. They're publicly traded company so they they've been growing expanding but i don't think they're quite to the scale of dickey's yet as far as i think. Dickie's is the largest but Just by like store count broader moss. Joining us here on the show talking about chain barbecue anything else you want to add to the chain conversation before we move onto books not not too much other than just i think it's. It's a murky subject and kurdish people. Keep try to keep myself and urged people to keep an open mind when it comes to to chains. But i do think. I think it's just the dynamics or interesting of what happens when a restaurant yo is trying to grow beyond two or three units in somewhere between two and three and the twenty. There's an interesting little sweet spot where you can grow where you can't go ahead and hit up robert moss's website if you want more info on chain barbecue but will transition over to book. Springtime early summertime is the wheelhouse for live fire. Cookbooks and you seem come out by droves certainly this year no stranger to a number of new books. Myron remixing his out with a kito book. Rodney scots out. With finally adrienne miller who we both know and has been a guest number of times here on. The show was out with a book that is doing exceptionally well. As you peruse the landscape of barbecue books that are live. Fire books to the sheer. What sticks out would you like. what don't you like. What's a gimmick. What's not not sure. If i don't like per se because i think there's is a lot of the same one of one of there's some interesting things i think there happening Happening this time around or this year is true. That every seems like every all probably won't bring out the barbecue books in that late. April may timeframe because it's barbecue season in my first thought was well that doesn't make sense. People cook year round. But also more you look at it. You realize that every may Editors in magazines are looking to do barbeque features. So if you have a book coming out right then it's a great way to get press whereas if you bring one out and say november people aren't necessarily going look for it I think it's interesting the way that the the book sort of follow the larger trends of what's going on and you sort of you know it's tough because a book doesn't get published in three three months. It is usually two or three year process from the time that publisher selects the book until the right completes it and they get they get through the publication process but it i think it does reflect some of the trans when one of the things i thought was interesting Coming out this year. There's a patriot. Publishing brought out three books all at one time. And i think it shows just the way that they're I think the rise of sort of branded barbecue equipment is really start to shape. The market so These books are all sort of Well they're based on different things. So one of them. Adam mackenzie book. Did a book called weekend. A weeknights smoking on your traeger. So it's focused particularly on traeger and it has the subtitle other pellet grills but tigers in in big letters and then there's another one bill gillespie sort well-known competition veteran Did a book on. I think so. Hot and fast on your weber spoke mountain cooker So it's really for smokey mountain. They're similar bullet cookers and then There's another one that came out. Same press is really about four fundamentals smoking and it. It looks at the different types of cooker. So it's those are being called out specifically. I think the idea is that you've got a lot of people buying or getting these these these new cookers or grills for the year for either ryan or a gift and then look out in the book to master that that happened last year as well. They're a bunch of books came out that were there. Were focused on that and cures enough. I got hit up a couple of times from folks. Who said hey. Would you like to write a book on on a cooking. On whatever appellant griller various models not passed on them. Because that's just not my thing but publishers are actively out looking for somebody. It's not like some guy. And says i really want right. The ultimate book on the the weber weber kettle. Oftentimes it's weber. Whoever you have the manufacturer is who's actually gone out and looking for someone to a payday smell or no. I guess it depends on on how you look at a you know ones getting rich off off of those books. I mean the best way to make money. You know selling cookbooks. Or selling books to become rich and famous and then write a book The sell out of copies but usually yup sure is going to well. I guess he's so well known but now it's it's. It's not a huge payday for somebody. But you'll pay you'll pay you know. Pay the rent a little bit and it may get you noticing and get lead to other things so it's usually more of a stepping stone. Then a great. I published this one book now. I'm done for five years. Robert got about a minute left. Let me ask you as we transition outta here. Barbecue hall of fame will be announced tomorrow so in no particular order of course Go ahead and give me your nominations. Yes i'm or talk through the diner. Who three picks did you vote. I can't i. Can't i can't reveal that sworn to secrecy. Why not nobody cares one. Vote or anything right. I mean you can tell you. Well if i was just your best nominating committees not not. But i'm happy to talk about. Who who who stands out to you or i mean. There's six of the nine or repeats. Meat heads a third pete in a row. Actually so i mean it's i would say it's certainly admirable for those names to get renominated because they are thrown back into the main holding tank and then basically ry argued for so there's obviously some type of deserve nece there to get put back at absolutely and i think that what my biggest takeaway from the list is strong list down to nine was really tough and we really went back and forth a lot of different things. I think if you look at the new names that are on this list Which i think is all gates at mitchell and joe. Dreger me all three of those. Those guys are legends. and so you know. There's nobody on that list. I don't think anybody would say isn't deserving all famous more just a question of is this the year or do they just hang around in and they'll get it next year So i think at this point it's almost down to Maybe like the full panel who they know better for that. Because i think from a quality standpoint all nine of those the finalists or any pick. You'll you'd have to say that's a pretty good pretty good class of inductees. no doubt about. We're talking with robert. Moss the website robert f moss dot com. Check out the chain barbecue. South dade wrote a bio two. And be sure to tune in right here tomorrow at three pm eastern as the barbecue hall of fame class of twenty twenty one is revealed.

They're breaking it all down when it comes to chain barbecues. Did you know that there was that much information. Of course you didn't. That's why you're tuning in here. To get the best info i thought for. I had him for a hot second on revealing who he was gonna put in for barbecue. But i know derek riches is gonna tell me who he would put into the barbecue hall of fame. He's not on the names committee. He's not in the barbecue hall of fame. Which is the driver for. So i know he's not voting so he'll be happy to give me his thought. But i i will tell you all the good things about green mountain grills proper moss just talked about pella cookers or very popular there are books dedicated the pellet cookers i would imagine next year you will see a number of other barbecue books dedicated to pellet cookers green mountain grills are some of the best helicopters out there on the market right now a couple of different options.

Talk a little SCA. Let's go into it. Here we go. My next guest is seen on the competition barbecue Circle, but this past weekend went down to Texas for the Steak Cook-off World Championships. And all he did was walk away with the first place trophy here to recap the wind talk a little steak cooking is the Pitmaster of Kosmos Q competition team Darien cuz Ravi joining me here on the show Darren. How are you, buddy? I'm pretty good. How are you doing? Absolutely fabulous, my friend and I appreciate you joining me tonight. So last to get to when it comes to talking about the steak cooking and all this great job you did down in Texas. But if you could can you talk to me a little bit for the folks that you know might be just tuning into the show for the first time or haven't gone through the extravagant run of archives here on this show, you know thought about yourself kind of how you got in this whole competition barbecue thing. Well, it started ten or eleven years ago. We just you know, I I guess mostly like everybody else see something on T and think you can do it and then we we find a competition here close. So we enter that was lucky enough to get our name called and just get hooked ever since and and you look back be honest with you. Just been just been going out of every year during if you if you hadn't got the first call as it's something that you still would have did not enough fun at the first one call or not where you would have went back anyway. Yeah. Yeah, we had a good I did a lot of work though back then ten years ago. It was a little lot different than it is now now I'm back until 6:30 in the morning. We're back then I never went to bed. So but I still would have went back because you know at the end of the day man, I just love home cooking and cooking aspect absolutely love and not to mention the socializing with all the people wage and you know now over, you know, ten eleven years. It's become a family so, you know, I look forward to to seeing you know, my family members on the weekend and just catching up and down hanging out and Cooks BBQ. Let me ask you a quick question. You know, when you look at it ten years ago 11 years ago just said you're up all night and and there's a lot more I guess quote unquote work or labor and birth. Of then you're doing now was it a different product back then is it was at one that can compare to what you're doing now, or are they completely two different worlds? In my opinion, they're two different worlds with the the evolution of the barbecue, you know products the injections rubs and marinades jokes back then they were around but they weren't near as refined as they are now and and not to mention the equipment has changed a lot better. We've learned a lot so that the whole evolution of barbecue in my opinion has shifted forward not to take anything away from you know guys that were doing back then because if it wasn't for them, we'd never be more at during cuz Ravi joined me here on the Shelf from Cosmos Q. We're going to go ahead and take a look back at the Steak Cook-off this past weekend down at home. All right, so, you know, there was a huge barbecue competition this weekend number of other ones too, but obviously the most well-known one was the Jack Daniels. We were just talking to Bill Gillespie about that this past segment also log Was the sca event that the big Steak Cook-off. So is that something that you had to qualify for previous to getting down there or kind of if you can kind of give me the the run-up to that steak tough situation. Well unbeknownst to me. I thought to be honest with you. I really didn't know much about it. We were actually going to meet the boat rides up at a competition, but we couldn't get in. So we said, you know, we found a state competition and we went to it and we was lucky enough to meet, you know, just a ninja though, the reigning world champions the last two years and just got to talking with them and and the birds from down in Texas and Cali. There's there's a bunch of them Pigs Barbecue, you know, just a bunch of guys and we just got to talking and I I I'll be honest with you. I didn't know that there was this whole federal state competition is realistically it's as much fun as barbecue if not more sometimes and that's Only because of the aspect of you don't have to do nearly it's not nearly as labor intensive as barbecues, but I didn't know so we got to talk with them guys. And you know, there was there there was other barbecue competitions around her clothes and I mean we looking at our schedule and I'm like, well, you know, I don't want to travel 500 miles if I got a state competition that's you know an hour from my house. So we got to do in a couple State competitions and you know just filling the gaps in between barbecue sauce and I still didn't know that I had qualified or I didn't qualify on because there's two ways you could qualify to go to the game World tissue up and that's one you have to be one of the top top ranked teams in the points standing or have to win a competition. And we were just learning it figuring it out. I think we only did like five or six of them and at that point, I think it was just four or five and off somebody.

Around there all right so check that out as well sure, most of the stuff is listed over meet heads website. As well meet had is at amazing ribs, DOT com. That's the website, but yet go ahead. Let me just point out you say listed over RS website I just want to point out anybody who's listening is not from there. We test. We Review we rate. We linked to wear to buy it, but we don't sell anything right. You're not a retail. Now we don't sell anything except membership on our pitmasters club otherwise I don't even sell my own book. You gotTA. Go to Amazon get there, you go. Which? I see it right over your right shoulder. That's the best our from what I understand. One of the best ever written top ten books ever written right Burr. Thank you the other thing I wanted to ask you about this evening. I'm going to be having Jon. Marcus on here in just a few short minutes I think we both widely agree that he is somebody that has exposed many millions of people into or at least inspiring them into getting into some form or fashion of live fire, grilling industry and tonight. I don't know if you're aware, but there was a first attempt at a pay per view barbecue contests. Did you know anything about this? And well I just found out about it and flipping through twitter today I saw Ray lampy site and I saw on twitter feed coupla others talking about this fight club, and then when I log in. Your listeners were talking about it, and the comments and I'm still not clear as to what it's all about I'm interested in hearing more sounds like it's a competition pay per view very interesting concept. I don't know how many people are willing to pay to watch competition barbecue, but if they show was a little more than what your typical TV show is showing us, it might be worthwhile and hey, listen. You mentioned John, I'm a huge fan of John Marcus I met him when the first pitmasters. Came on TV I was doing a weekly review for the Huffington. Post I reviewed every week. They were great fun. And John is one of the most remarkable people in the barbecue community. He is truly a man for all seasons erudite. Well read. Did you know he's a playwright? Did I, of course I know. He wrote a fabulous tones for crying out loud. Yet I actually purchased a script to the liposomes which you can read and forty five minutes It's a fun fun play. he's written a couple of other places. You know of people who know of in know that he was. He won an emmy for his job as a writer on the bill cosby show. And Just you know. Coal creators. He was co-creator of a different world. You remember that that was a spin off of the cosby show. That was wildly successful. The Lisa Bonet a I think Marisa Tomei. A younger Theresa Marisa Tomei was in that as well. I mean that's a big deal. Just those things are. Huge he's. He's very very knowledgeable, very experienced. and. His expertise goes way beyond barbecue into all matters food literature. Truly. Unlike anybody else I. Know the Barbecue World. So to get back to the fight club, so it was a nine dollars. Ninety nine cents get down for this evening now yesterday to entice you at six PM. Eastern. They had a let's call round table outside and some secret undisclosed location I know exactly where it is by the way but. They had they had the guy from smoking hogs, Massachusetts Bill Gillespie the pitmasters from nine one three Barbecue Darren war is competing. Of course, Tim. Sheer is over there. Luke Darnell from old Virginia Smoke Kelly words from four legs of Barbecue I believe that was rounding out the competition, so they had these six folks going up against each other and what I'm trying to ascertain is. How much was show I? Mean Look I'm no idiot here. I know how a barbecue competition runs, and if you're starting out from the beginning, which I doubt they were. I mean what are we looking at at a minimum time commitment of five hours or six hours, so there's no way they showed a barbecue competition starting at six o'clock tonight, and it's already over so that there had to have been some or a bunch of prerecorded offer. Maybe they were cooking during the day today, and they were making packages, and then filtering in some live stuff at six. o'clock I'm not sure exactly how it work. Work, because I can't as much as I like because your guy. Day Neil over there in Chicago was one of the big operating partners in this I think he put the deal together with fight. TV in order to get this off the ground. He's in the motor sports to, and that's part of the show that he has over there on wgn and when he was on last week talking about it, I thought I dug the concept. But what I keep going back to back me up on this. Muda Barbecue people are inherently cheap fast, and for them to squeeze ten dollars out.

"You think to yourself when it first got brought up to be like well, you know food has never been a pay per view thing. We have entertainment. It's all it's all I mean other than maybe you're kind of tell, brisket, recipe or or different subscription services. It's just not the kind of thing that you typically pay, so you'd have to think. Think like what would be something special. You know what would be something that would make it. An event would be to do it in one night with all of these grace. We've got six different pitmasters in there that are there. We've got Kelly from forelegs out. Barbecue Pat Bill Gillespie from smoking hawks. We've got a fascinating mcallister from one three. Is that Luke turnout from Old Virginia smoke? We've got Darren worth you can't have a a great matchup without one of the greatest, if that greatest of all time in there as well and so, it's It's a collection that you would not necessarily see altogether, and only against each other, and then and then we've got six judges to, so we've only announced three of the judges so far. Soon Ray lamp Dr Barbecue now these are personalities. Obviously you see him on TV all the time, but but they are your. They walk the walk as a as a certified. Certified judges well all that street cred, so it's a little different than you know. Chopped or or iron chat right where you've got a great personalities and they know what they're talking about, but there's no it was formed sports elements just isn't into it, so the emily detweiler from ktbs and going to be sanction kcbs contest, and so she's going to be.

"Sacrifice our lives for education to get you a better life to send you to these Ivy League schools and all of a sudden hope that you can cash and you don't care about us once you leave you. Don't care what your teachers you don't keep in touch and wondering about us and so it's a really good speech and you can tell. He's deathly becoming unhinged. But it's an important point. I mean. Listen pay the teachers right. We all know that we always educators. Were paid more. I think after what this country is going through more than ever we God do not take the teachers for granted definitely. Yeah and even though we need to take care of. Our teachers is embezzlement the answer and I think that's what we all need to ask exactly. Well set all right. This reviews primarily more of Joe. Because he's seen more than I ever have but I finally got around to watching Shallow Hal. Just as I've been telling you I tried to go through some old Jim Carrey movies I'd never seen before. I love the fairly brothers. I think there's something about. Mary should be nominated for best picture that year. That's what a great comedy that is nine. Hundred Ninety eight. I might be even bigger fan of kingpin which is of course. Wonderful me myself and Irene watched again and I remember at the time. It got mixed reviews. I think it's very good and of course green book which Peter Fairly did not bobby. I won best picture. I know it got pilloried by some but I thought it was an excellent film so shallow. How my aversion to it or reluctance to watching was another huge Jack. Black Fan I find it to be kind of noxious guy retire. Vcu On screen. I I just don't think he's funny. So that's why I hadn't seen the movie and be perfectly blunt not crazy poetry weather. I know I don't really. I don't really her screen presence as alluring as others. So that's why I had waited through this but thankfully to actors. I like a lot. Jason Alexander plays the sidekick role. Did Not know that. Just as didn't realize Jennifer Aniston played the love interest and Bruce Almighty and JOVITA rally. Who is so great analyzed this? He's in the movies. Well he's playing the father of politics character so the story is this in case you've never seen at Twentieth Anniversary Shallow Hal. Next year the story revolves around. How Jack Black who take his dying father's advice dates only the embodiment of female physical perfection. But that all changes after. How has an unexpected running with self help? Guru Tony Robbins. By the way how huge Tony Robbins. Gigantic in the movie hands are huge. Head is big. I mean just just just suffering from gigantism. In addition to having a ton of money intrigued by how shallowness Robbins hypnotizing him into seeing the beauty. That exists even in the lease physically appealing women by the way to crush. Tony Robbins very popular. Anybody who's saying loves him but I'm just saying huge huge man. So that's the story and the first half think is particularly funny. Because you know Jack Black's looking at this woman play by the Potter who is just enormous to everybody else. She's obese. She's literally break and chairs. I mean she's crushing double milkshakes. And it's all right but he's completely raptured by her and one of the funnier scenes is when Jason Alexander who's also similarly shallow when he first sees her and he's just like are you kidding like how could you be so in trance by this woman but of course if you're fat you're skinny in his eyes and by the way really hot it goes the other way as well which is even funnier. So it was. It was attractive. He thinks they're like a troll ultimately the jokes. Where after wild? But that stretch much like Bruce Almighty. What's he gets the powers that's the funniest part of the comedy one shallow? Hal is at first falling in love with her. That's the funniest part of the comedy. The second is slow down a little bit. Then it gets a little bit preachy. Okay what is love have and of course Alexandra? Fives Tony Robbins. He has to reverse the curse. Neil the ending. Obviously no one's really going to buy but you know these movies are coming with that but ultimately I thought it was all right. I'm going to give it probably two and a half maple leafs. It was not peak fairly brothers for me. I would agree with review from Neil Smith. Bbc Dot Com. How Larry imparts sickeningly sentimental and others? Shallow Hal has the fairly trying to expand their range with only mildly successful results. And one more here from Derek Adams of time out. The film is not as funny as their best but fascinates in the discomforting four grams of brothers normally buried. Fassel moral dialectic. And if you know what that means. Here's Joe with more shallow. Hal and I was so curious to get your take on this movie just to see how it holds up. I really liked the fairly brothers overall. And when they hit they hit dumb and dumber kingpin. So I'm glad to see that it's still funny at some parts but it just. I don't know if I can still revisit it just just for that. You know what I mean. That's a perfectly well suggestion I saw at once. I'm glad I've seen it now. It was amusing like it did the job right reverend quarantine. I need a couple of laughs. I had a few laughs. Alexander by the way disturbing ending with the fact. He's got his own issue. The fact is a tale. I'm still horrified by the entire scene. That was just disgusting. I did not need to physically see that. I would have loved to have gone out of the Todd. Mccarthy of variety by the way with a relatively untested black coming in office strong the lack of direct finesse. Let's the enterprise down creating some clunky scenes and dead air relapse Expected Harsh Review there from todd McCarthy so that is Shallow Hal I will get to a couple more films here and then we get some entertainment news. And we've got a special guest by the way did even mentioned Eric. Roberts that's right Eric Roberts guys. Hollywood legend been in so many movies. He's in a new film called inside the rain which is on Amazon. Encourage you all to check it out. So we'll get to Eric Roberson. Just a second couple more movies in the heat of the night. I know shame on me. I'd never seen an African American Philadelphia police. Detective Virgil Tibbs. Sydney puts is arrested on suspicion of murder by bill. Gillespie Rod Steiger the racist police chief of TINY SPARTA MISSISSIPPI. After tibbs prove his own innocence. But that of another man. He joins forces with Gillespie to track down the real killer. Their investigation takes them through every social level. The town with tibbs making enemies as well as unlikely friends as he hunts for the truth the first hour of the film I mean. It is literally crackling with racial tension. I it is excellent and it still holds up today. Think about this. The Voting Rights Act in America came out in nineteen sixty. Four in the heat of the night was released in nineteen sixty seven and the film is taking place in Mississippi. Now I don't need to be a black man living in nineteen sixty seven to know. Hey just because the voting rights act came through sixty four. Not Everybody was going to be supportive of people of different races and different colors and the movie nails the fact that at that time it was still incredibly racist and incredibly distrustful of outsiders and especially puts his character who is so polished and so smart and ingenious. Improves that very quickly? As you pointed a couple of flaws with Rod Steiger and the Police Department and what? They're trying to do in trying to ascertain who the killer is I. I was impressed by the way they were able to nail that and of course I give credit to Norman Jewison the great Canadian director. Who's made a lot of films about racial injustice the hurricane with Denzel Washington? Another one that comes to mind but he certainly taps into that. And you've got I mean just stellar performances puts the scene that you all know comes in about twenty minutes earlier in the movie steiger literally dropped a couple end bombs already on them and after. Portia told them. Listen My name is Virgil tibbs. I'm a police detective. He Goes Virgil. It's a funny name for an N. Word like you. What do they call you in Philadelphia? And that's where he says they call me Mista tabs which is a tremendous line. That's the most famous part of the the other part. Though also incredible. He goes to question someone because now he's just passing through town visiting his mom they arrest him. He obviously didn't do it but he's actually a cop and they realize he's actually smart. Hey can you hang around and help US solve the case? They call his boss and Philly. He says all right help them so when he goes to investigate somebody and he in Steiger have an uneasy alliance and like they like each other is doing the right thing here because he knows if he doesn't help solve the case eight gets in trouble with his boss but be there's a woman who wants to K- sold at the cases and get salt to her satisfaction. She's going to move a plant out of the city and the plate is responsible for a thousand jobs five hundred of which are black people and the woman specifically says no. I want the I believe she says in the film. I want the Negro on the case because she goes clearly he's the one that's smart and knows what's happening so you have reluctant cop. He goes interrogate a guy and at one point. He asked him a question. And the guy slaps ports put his slop some right back and like Oh my God. This is one thousand nine hundred sixty seven deep South Mississippi and the guy of course takes umbrage at looks at Rod Steiger's characters. Did you do see that like you're gonNA report that and Steiger again doesn't like poetry but he can't just shrug is I don't know we'll figure it out. And the way the white man just as virulent racist looks down on poetry boy loud locked up for hitting a man like me. Well you know what the times are a changing. There's also a scene where a bunch of racists young guys are literally chased inside deportees. They can abandoned warehouse and like he's fearing for his life like this is a potential lynching about to happen and Steiger shows up and saves him and that's a really well done sequence in the he the light as a lot of great things going for it. But I'm not gonNA give it four police for the simple fact. The ending at thought was a bit of a letdown. It just feels a little too convenient that way. It comes together and of course you've got to have a scene of reconciliation which is terribly forest puts. It goes back on the train to go back to PHILLY STEIGER SAYS VIRGIL. He says yeah. He smiles at him. Take care of yourself closeup. O.`day smile take care of yourself and the train goes away and you get now. No one's really. By the fact that these guys now respect each other but fi last ten fifteen minutes to me let up a little bit but still a film which was very powerful for its time and still holds up. I'm going to give it three. Maple leaves and Steiger by the way listen puts it for good. Reason is known for it in the night Rod Steiger. You got one great actor. You know another great actor who's going to match wits with him and you know what a good actor. He is obviously on the waterfront. We all know the scene in the back of the car brand new together playing the role of Gillespie terrible racist who realizes the brilliant puts Steiger also is excellent John. Mahoney's review of Hog reporter puts his excellent performance both transcends and lifts the pretensions of the film is shooting earlier mannerisms and projecting a wealth of emotion facial communication want a hail of New York Daily News.

She posted a cryptic message on his memorial page to rights. You had a troubled life, but you are not forgotten. Once again, they pick up the phone, but nothing could prepare him for what she says.
