In our 4th Episode of the season, I continue my chat with Stephen and Kristen Rossler of BlueCord Barbecue in Killeen Texas.  This is the back end of a fun hour and a half interview with these two inspiring folks.  We get into their plans for the future and dig into the Barbecue and their menu.  We also have a little fun and talk about the good old days and a certain Sexy Leg Contest, you might be surprised about that one!  They are such hard working friendly folks and it was a blast interviewing them.  I hope you enjoy their story!!

Welcome to Season Two of the  I Crush Barbecue Show!!

In our 3rd Episode of the Season,  I chat with my friends Kristen and Stephen Rossler of Rosslers Blue Cord Barbecue in Killeen Texas.  They have an incredible story  that couldn't fit into just one episode so we'll have a Part 2 Next week!  In this first part we'll go into their backgrounds and where they "mostly " grew up.   They're both well-traveled due to their military backgrounds, Kristen was a military brat and Stephen is in the last leg of his military service, he's due to retire later this year.  Stephen has been known to help out many folks in the barbecue community and he truly appreciates the comradery which is similar to what he's had in the Military.   At one point he had no idea what he'd do once he retired but that all changed a few years back when he found his calling in the Barbecue World.  BTW he has connections to California BBQ!  Kristen has the small business and restaurant experience and she's found a new love of playing with fire!  Together they're an all-star couple and it was a pleasure to chat with them.  I hope you enjoy their Story, this is Rosslers Blue Cored barbecue.

WELCOME TO SEASON 2!!!

My first Episode of the season is an incredible story of High School Kids in Barbeque! I chatted with Ms Sarah Allen at Lubbock-Cooper High School in Lubbock Texas and some of the members of their bbq competition teams! The team is made up of an equal number of male & female students and they all share the responsibilities of preparation & execution. They are cooking on stick burners, some schools even have programs where students are building pits, more to come on that, they are cooking several proteins and making sides as well! Part of their training includes getting a little help from the Pro’s! The end goal is to make it to the state competition and bring home the Championship. This story gives us a glimpse into what’s happening in the HIGH SCHOOL BBQ scene and it’s a feel good story of how the awesome culture is now embracing our youth! Btw, they have a couple of items on their wishlist, listen to the end and let me know if you want to help out!! I hope you enjoy the show, this is the Lubbock Cooper HS BBQ Team!

 

Thanks for tuning into the I Crush Barbecue Show, I hope you enjoyed our first episode of Season 2!  Go follow the Lubbock Cooper BBQ team at @LCPCulinaryArts and hit me up if you want to help them out in any way!

Description

Snow’s pitmaster Tootsie Tomanetz doesn’t play favorites when it comes to smoking meats, as evidenced by this delectable sampler, which showcases why Snow’s has long been recognized as the top barbecue in Texas.

The “Tootsie” Sampler includes:

1 Beef Brisket (approximately 4-5 lbs): trimmed and oak-smoked low and slow for 10 to 12 hours, producing a perfectly crisp bark, divine smoke ring and moist center.

1 Pork Steak (approximately 2 lbs): bone-in and memorable, a house specialty and local favorite that highlights the brilliance behind barbecuing thick, juicy upper shoulder cuts.

2 rings of Snow’s Original or Jalapeño Sausage (approximately 2 lbs): made from a house blend of beef, pork, and spices in a natural casing, slow cooked, and infused with oak smoke.

Total: Approx. 9 lbs.

In this Episode I chat with my buddy, Bryan Gonzalez, you might remember him from episode 11 when I interviewed him and Robert Sierra of SS Pit Crew.  Since then Bryan has made a decision to move on from his full time job and his Barbecue Competition team in order to focus his attention on Barbecue Full time.  No, he's not starting his own business just yet, instead he was offered an opportunity to work at one of the Top Barbecue Joints in the Country!  Although it means uprooting his life in San Marcos Texas, he is extremely excited to learn from one of the best in the business.  Bryan is extremely talented and one of the friendliest and most humble guys you'll meet.  Tune in to hear his story and find out where he's headed.  I hope you enjoy the show!

For the past 8 weeks I've interviewed some of the best Tex-Mex Barbecue joint's for our #TexMexBBQSeries. This week's episode will conclude our Series and we are definitely ending with a Bang!!  In our Final episode of the series I chat with the OG of Tex-Mex BBQ, Miguel Vidal of Valentina's Tex-Mex Barbecue.  This is easily one of my favorite interviews since I started the podcast.  I'd never heard of a Tex-Mex Barbecue joint until I ran across Valentina's a few years back. The Smell of Mesquite, the fluffy tortillas, the Beans, the fresh Salsa, the smashed avocado with salt, the beautiful brisket, heck everything Valentina's offers reminds me of my upbringing in West Texas.  Miguel grew up in San Antonio Texas and worked in the restaurant industry from an early age.  He was a talented Soccer Player that aspired to be a professional but a knee injury caused him to trade the Pitch for a Lot filled with Barbecue Pits and Picnic Tables.  This is an inspiring rags to riches story that only keeps getting better.  I hope you enjoy this episode!
