Kurt talks with Rub Bagby, Pit Master of Swamp Boys BBQ out of Winter Haven, FL, about starting his BBQ journey 18 years ago, the story of how he got the nickname Rub, why he started teaching classes, why he came up with his own rub and sauce line which are now on Publix shelves, how Rub navigates social media and building his brand, and his changed opinion on how to get the public involved in competition BBQ. Rub has, under his belt, 64 Grand Championships, 52 Reserve Grand Championships, and is in the FBA (Florida BBQ Association) Hall of Fame. Those stats speak for themselves!
"There’s nothing magical here. It’s not the best bottle of sauce that’s doing it. It’s just a combination of tenderness, taste, and of course making it look good."
