myron mixon everyday barbecue

I chat with Myron Mixon about what’s new in Season 5 of BBQ Pitmasters. Plus, a giveaway of his newest cookbook Everday Barbecue.

Is everyone stoked to watch the season premier of BBQ Pitmasters Season 5 tonight? I got the chance to interview Myron and discuss what’s different about this season versus seasons in the past. He said there is a change to the judging line up where there will be a guest judge every season with a final judge being announced near the end of the season. I also asked him about tips for those getting into smoking and competition Q, what you can learn from his cooking school, current trends in the BBQ circuit, and how to cook wild boar (I figured he’d be the perfect person to ask!). The interview is embedded below:

To celebrate the season premier, I’m announcing a giveaway of Myron’s latest book- Everyday Barbecue. Please leave a comment on my blog and like my facebook page to be eligible to win. I’ll announce the winner this Wednesday, June 5th.

Last but not least, my friends Big Wayner from Big Wayner’s BBQ blog and Shane Draper have created a BBQ Pitmasters Drinking Game. If you would like to participate with us tonight, check out the rules on Wayne’s blog. Essentially, everytime Myron curses you take a drink so you know you’ll be tipsy by the end of the show!
