Spoilers for Season 1 of American Barbecue Showdown.

Once you’re done drooling over the first season of The American Barbecue Showdown on Netflix, you might want to know more about the cast, including where contestant Rasheed is now.

Rasheed thought he was the underdog of the competition — even saying at one point, “I don’t know what I’m doing on the show” — but the Jamaica native ended up placing second. And with a catering business and a podcast to his name, Rasheed’s future seems bright. Keep reading to learn more about this breakout BBQ king.

Rasheed Philips, who narrowly lost to Tina Cannon in the American Barbecue Showdown Season 1 finale, has his own catering business, the aptly named Philips Barbeque Co.

“When you put your name on something, you have to stand by it! For that reason, more than any other, is why Rasheed Philips studies and practices the craft of barbeque,” the business’s website reads.

Rasheed’s barbecue combines his love for food and passion for learning, according to the site, and he relies on the three T’s: time, temperature, and technique.

“Philips Barbeque Co. is not glamorous and it’s not a set it and forget it type cooking,” the site adds. “Often times, it’s backbreaking work, which requires long hours, a steady trimming hand, and the determination to only put out a product you are proud of.”

When he’s not tending to smoked meats, Rasheed also hosts the Entro Podcast, in which he introduces listeners to “entrepreneurs in the early stages of their entrepreneurial journey” and shares “relatable experiences, aspirations, and advice.”

In the first episode, Rasheed explains that he created the podcast because “I couldn’t find this type of information, I couldn’t find this type of tribe, I couldn’t find a great group of people or content out there … that I could really enjoy and talk to.”

He says that he enjoys Gary Vaynerchuk and Seth Godin’s podcasts, but he was curious to learn more about entrepreneurs who are just starting out. “I wanted to hear from people who are in the moment right now, right there along with me,” he adds in the podcast premiere. “So I took it upon myself to create that platform for others to share their information.”

Tina and Rasheed competed against six other contestants in American Barbecue Showdown: semi-retired machinist James Grubbs, car salesman Ashley Thompson, St. Louis family man James L. Boatright, North Carolina neighborhood barbecuer Michael “Shotgun” Collins, self-styled “Queen of Brisket” Sylvie Curry, and backyard cook Georgia Chasen.

Kevin Bludso, founder of Bludso’s BBQ, and Melissa Cookston, seven-time world barbecue champion, judged the first season, which was hosted by AP Bio actor Lyric Lewis and Floor is Lava host Rutledge Wood.

“Each episode, Kevin and Melissa will task the cookers with a challenge that will test their barbecue skills in ways they couldn’t possibly imagine,” says Netflix. “From unique meats to old school techniques, they will have to prove they have the skills to smoke another day.”

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
