The podcast quickly gained traction within the gaming community, thanks to the hosts’ entertaining banter, their passion for the hobby, and their engaging personalities. Each episode of the show features in-depth discussions and reviews of the latest board games, as well as interviews with designers and industry insiders.

The Board Game BBQ Podcast has been praised for its inclusivity and commitment to promoting diversity within the gaming community.

The hosts have worked to create a welcoming space for gamers of all backgrounds and identities, and have been vocal advocates for underrepresented groups in the hobby.
