HotSauceWeekly — BBQ Sauce Roundtable

[tweetmeme source=”brownkw” only_single=false]

Just wanted to share something really cool with you.  A few weeks ago, I was asked by Brian of HotSauceWeekly.com if I would be interested in taking part in a BBQ Sauce Roundtable.  Honestly, I was really surprised and flattered!  I’ve been actively blogging since the beginning of this year, and having someone ask me to be part of a podcast was just really freakin’ cool!

So last night, I took part in recording the BBQ Sauce Roundtable for HotSauceWeekly.com.  Also taking part in the podcast were Brian and Marilyn Meagher of HotSauceWeekly, Larry Gaian of The BBQ Grail, Cyndi Allison of Barbecue Master and Yes You Can Grill, and Brian Henderson of BBQ Sauce Reviews.  The roundtable discussion is now live and can be checked out at http://hotsauceweekly.com/hsw-045-bbq-sauce-roundtable/.

Also, just a friendly reminder that the Birthday Blowout is still in full swing.  You can enter daily, so enter away!
