We interviewed 10 more competition barbecue teams at the Memphis in May World Championship of Barbecue Competition. Each team offers their top advice and tips for mastering your smoker. Whether you’re a backyard cook or interested in entering the competition circuit you’ll love these behind the scenes interviews.
In our latest interview, we sat down with Ray Lampe of Dr. BBQ in St. Petersburg, Florida. Dr. BBQ is the name of Ray’s team, but it’s also his nickname. There’s a reason that Ray was inducted in the American Royal Barbecue Hall of Fame in 2014. He’s one of the most recognized pitmasters in the country, and he’s spent 15 years testing different BBQ cooking styles. He entered his first rib BBQ contest in 1982 and quit the family trucking business to become a full-time pitmaster. He’s written nine books, including Slow Fire: The Beginner's Guide to Barbecue, Dr. BBQ’s Big-Time Barbecue Cookbook, the official NFL Gameday Cookbook, and a new cookbook (the Big Green Egg Cookbook) to help home barbecue enthusiasts, backyard grillers, and those interested in competition barbecue learn how to cook the best New American Barbecue.
