Chit Chat Across the Pond Lite logo Two interlocking ribbons, one red, one blue. The word Lite is across the logo in a playful font. The podfeet (two little bare feet) are in the upper right. The background is dark blue with Chat and Chat in the upper left and lower right corners with "across the pond" in thin letter across the bottom. Sounds more confusing than it is!

They’re joining me today to talk about their brand new podcast, BBQ and Tech. I’ve also asked Steve (the husband) to join us because he’s really enjoying what the guys are teaching, while I’m just the beneficiary in the eating part.

BBQ and Tech LogoThis episode of Chit Chat Across the Pond hits on a lot of the high points of what Chris and Rod are teaching in BBQ and Tech. The difference between grilling and barbecuing (also known as smoking), some of the different options for getting started in barbecue, and how the tech angle comes into the show.

Chris and Rod have been friends since they were 5 years old and they’ve been barbecuing together for a very long time. This friendship makes listening to them talk about barbecue a real joy.
