Digital Hospitality podcast featuring Chef David Rose

For fans of the Behind the Smoke podcast this is a very special episode because Derek Marso (Valley Farm Market), Shawn Walchef’s former cohost on Behind the Smoke, was able to interview Chef David Rose with Shawn live from their BET on BBQ competition and tasting event in Del Mar.

As all the Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) teams loaded in on Saturday, Aug. 17, the day of the Pacific Classic at the famous Del Mar Racing track, Shawn and Derek sat down to interview Chef David Rose. It was a live recording on-location of the annual Bet on BBQ event, and he shared his secrets to being a chef and brand ambassador.
