019 – The Blinsky Chronicles – 1- BBQ, Blinsky & Vape



“Which of me do you want to talk to? There was a while where I had two lives…I had one life that was shown and one that happened when the sun set.”  – Jared Blinsky

Steve and Jeff talk with Jared Blinsky, owner of Advanced Vapor in Westerville and local food icon and a former owner of Route 62 BBQ in Johnstown, Ohio. In this first episode of The Blinsky Chronicles, the guys talk BBQ, brisket, secret recipes and the 23 years that Jared spent in the food industry, why he wanted to open a vape shop (“I wanted to legally sell a controlled substance”), Street Outlaws, bikers, Harleys, weddings, pies, Shorty and the American flag.

It’s easy to tell the guys all know each other really well, but spoiler alert: this relationship between Blinsky and the guys started as a professional one. Stay tuned to find out why as the story continues…
