Welcome to the I Crush Barbecue Show, I'm your Host, Abe Delgado

In this episode I take you back to the Heritage Craft Barbecue Invitational which was a celebration of their 2nd year Anniversary.  This event was the best BBQ event that California has ever seen.  We had some of the TOP Barbecue Pitmasters from across the country.  We also had the pioneers of Craft Barbecue from California and some of the up and coming beasts of Cali BBQ.  If you didn't make it out, I'm sad you missed out but at least I hope to provide a taste of the action.  I was able to interview quite a few of the pitmasters, there were 40+ so unfortunately I wasn't able to interview all of them, but we had some great representation.  I promise, you won't want to miss the next one!  I hope you enjoy the show!

In this Episode, I chat with my buddy Derrick Walker from Smoke-A-Holics Barbecue in Fort Worth Texas.  Derrick has been slanging BBQ for many years, he was doing popups before popups were cool!  I dropped by during a BBQ Run I did with my dad where we hit 26 spots in about a week back in December of last year.  Smoke-A-Holics was definitely one of the highlights of that trip and I was able to chat with Derrick earlier this year.  With his Culinary background and homestyle cooking they coined the phrase TexSoul  which  is Texas Barbecue with a Soul Food twist.  If you haven't been, you have to stop by this Texas Monthly Top 50 BBQ Joint!  BTW, Smoke-A-Holics has already confirmed that they will be at The Heritage Barbecue Invitational, which is an event that will be held in San Juan Capistrano California to celebrate Heritage Barbecue's 2nd Anniversary on August 13th.  Get your tickets to that if you haven't yet!  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the show, this is Derrick Walker with Smoke-A-Holics!

In this episode I talk to the most famous BBQ Pitmaster you may have never heard of unless you're in the BBQ Circles.  He's a BBQ World Champion and this year he was part of Mexico's 3rd place finish in the World Championship on a team led by Mexico's biggest BBQ ambassador Luis Rivas. BTW, That was the best result ever by an international team at the World Championship.  BBQ saved his life and this is his inspiring story.  It's my pleasure to have my buddy Smokin Willy T, aka William Tischina on the show.

 In this episode, I chat with my buddy, the king of Parties Mr. Chase Colston.  We recorded this at the end of last year and I think this is a perfect time to post since his Company Troubadour Fest just announced 3 separate shows for 2022!!  We chat about how it all started, we go backstage to hear some of the cool stories and we get a bit personal.  This is a story of perseverance, passion, and friendship, dreaming big and going after it.  Chase is such a talented young man with a huge heart and he's helping so many folks build and grow their brands all while throwing a hell of a party!  You're not going to want to miss this one, this is Chase Colston.

We Kick-Off Season 4 with my conversation with Dayne and Ashley Weaver of Dayne's Craft Barbecue.  Stories like theirs is why I have a podcast in the first place.  Although you might think of struggle and sacrifice when you hear them share their experiences, but that's not really how they felt.  Their Strong belief in each other and the hard work and determination that's instilled in them made it feel like oh well it's just another day, we can work extra hours and just get through it.  They were made for each other and they were made to cook great Barbecue, believe me, I know!  I recorded this show back in December of 2021 and I was able to make it out there with my dad later in the month and my goodness, we were blown away.  That Brisket, that sausage and those dang Burgers are to die for. If you're not a fan of Dayne's after listening to this show, you're probably a robot.  I hope you enjoy the show!

In this episode I chat with the BBQ Snob himself, Mr. Daniel Vaughn.  He's the BBQ Editor at Texas Monthly and Author of The Prophets of Smoked Meat: A Journey through Texas Barbecue and Coauthor of Whole Hog BBQ: The Gospel of Carolina Barbecue.  He's also the man behind the Texas Monthly Top 50 BBQ joints list and 50 honorable mentions list.  We chat about both lists and dig into some of the details around the processes and methods used to construct the list. I also get to ask him some fun questions about his travels, providing feedback, uncovering hidden gems and so much more.  I'd always dreamed of having the BBQ Snob on my show and it definitely lived up to my expectations.  I hope you enjoy the show, this is Daniel Vaughn.

S3 Ep12 - ZEF BBQ

In this episode I chat with my buddy Logan Sandoval of ZEF Barbecue in Simi Valley.  Logan is a Chef with extensive knowledge in the Culinary World but he's the new kid in town when it comes to Barbecue. In a short period of time, this self-taught BBQ Cook has molded his Chef experience and his cultural influences to create some incredible BBQ fusions. I was blown away when I visited him at a pop up on a residential street in Simi Valley a few months ago and apparently some big food writers are noticing him as well.  This is a story of a family man that's doing what he has to do to survive and now It's starting to pay off.  This is only the beginning of his story, I hope you enjoy the show, this is ZEF BBQ.

In this Episode I chat with Michael Johnson Jr. of Cen-Tex Smokers out of Luling Texas.  Michael has Welding in his Blood and although as a kid he didn't want to follow in his dad's footsteps he's now thankful to have his Dad and his expertise by his side.  With the attention to detail he puts into his craft and the customer first Mentality, Michael has brought Cen-Tex Smokers into the forefront of Pit building in a short period of time.  He's built Pits for many big names in Barbecue including several of the Texas Monthly Top 50 List and he's just getting started.  I hope you enjoy the Show, this is Cen-Tex Smokers!

In this Episode I chat with one of Texas Monthly's newest Top 50 Joints,  LaVaca BBQ in Port Lavaca TX!  This is a Family owned business that was built and is run by the family! I had the pleasure of meeting these fine folks at BrettFest a couple of weeks ago and I loved their story and was blown away by their Smoked Tamales.  Although Lupe, Christine and Kelly have had success in BBQ, they're the new kids on the Block and they're really enjoying all of the comradery that they've experienced since the announcement!  This family has figured our simpler and smarter ways to do business, in some cases they were forced to due to lack of resources.  You're not going to want to miss this one.
