Posted by‘s Tom Fischer interview pitmaster Ray Lampe “Dr. BBQ” at the first annual Kentucky State BBQ Festival in Danville, Kentucky. You’ve probably seen Dr. BBQ on Food Network’s “Tailgate Warriors with Guy Fieri” or “Best Thing I Ever Ate.” Perhaps you’ve watched his presentations as he travels the country at BBQ festivals nationwide showcasing his recipes, books and the Big Green Egg while demonstrating his real pork shoulder, championship ribs, BBQ chicken, and championship beef brisket.
