Monk: John Tanner has broken into the medium of podcasts having recently joined the AdventuRetired podcast to discuss his barbecue hobby. Definitely worth a listen if you’re as big a fan of John’s barbecue blogging as we are.
Description: John Tanner has a delicious retirement hobby! One so amazing that you just might find Curt hitching a ride to Washington D.C. just to sample it! John Tanner is THE expert of BBQ. This episode tells how he plans each BBQ trip and how BBQ differs everywhere he travels. This retired law professor/attorney has what it takes to be an expert at his craft. What is better than some savory BBQ and tasty sides while visiting new BBQ joints all over the United States? Not much if you as us! Hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did…and honey get the car started…I’m hungry!
Monk: While the Tales from the Pits guys were in Charleston in early March, they recorded a podcast interview with Robert Moss, who lives in Mount Pleasant. In it, they nerd out a little on barbecue history, discuss among other things the Holy Smokes Barbecue Festival, and Robert also gives a few under the radar barbecue recommendations for South Carolina, North Carolina, and Texas.
Description: We were thrilled to have the chance to sit down with Robert F. Moss during our recent trip to South Carolina for the Charleston Wine + Food Festival. Robert is a wealth of culinary knowledge and the research he’s done on barbecue history is second to none. Born and raised in South Carolina, Robert is an accomplished author who has had several books published on Barbecue, spirits, and other facets of culinary history. He’s an absolute wealth of information and in this episode we discussed topics ranging from modern barbecue, historical barbecue, and Robert’s daunting task of composing Southern Living’s 50 Best Barbecue Places in the South list.
Tune in to hear some great stories on barbecue history and be sure to pick up Robert’s incredible books. Go to his website to sign up for his ‘Cue Sheet newsletter.

Monk: Dampf Good BBQ has recently come onto the Raleigh barbecue scene, bringing a distinctly Texas take to the pork-centric capital. Here, Nick Dampf sits down with The NC F&B Guys and describes, among other things, his background, approach to barbecue, and the intricacies of smoking on a dual 1000 gallon behemoth of a pit.
Description: We sat down with Nick Dampf himself to talk about his transition from Cisco sales rep to a full-time pitmaster (a term Nick’s too humble to use). We learned:
What do you get when you mix weekend pop-ups, Texas style BBQ, and a 2000 gallon smoker? Dampf Good BBQ of course!
Monk: The Tales from the Pit guys react to the release of the much-anticipated Texas Monthly Top 50 list last Monday with an instant reaction pod.
They start off by recounting the top 10 and comparing it to their predictions (they both got 8/10) before naming the rest of the top 50. Then they end by naming some of the ones that missed the cut but are favorites of them as well as some stats. Good discussion as always.
Description: The much anticipated 2021 Texas Monthly Top 50 BBQ List has finally arrived! Hear our thoughts on the top ten, the list overall, and some fun facts and tidbits about the long awaited list that always has BBQ nerds talking.
Congratulations to all of the great spots that made the list, and make sure you go out and support all of your favorite local BBQ regardless of whether they’re on a list or not.
