I'm not too optimistic as it seems as if they will be following the same mode as last season and not season 1.

It will still be pretty cool to see lots of Brethren on there, so get your video ready and apply now!

It says...

We have yet to determine which contests we'll be attending but casting
has begun and we want YOUR video auditions.

That makes it sound more like season 1.

What I'm concerned with is that they are bringing back Myron, Art and Warren.

Maybe it'll be a hybrid show, a mix of season one and two?

If you click on the link and watch the trailer that they put up it sure looks like season 2. If it is like season one, what do you think is the compensation? Season 2 is obviously the prize money but other than notoriety what did the season one guys get? Not that notoriety is bad. I went to Q, Lee Ann's place in Chicago, where they are charging 35 bucks for a rack of "competition" ribs.

I'm not sure if I understand the question. If they said that they were not optimistic about issue 9 as they were disappointed with issue 8 I wouldn't take it personally. Is that what you meant?

Is the underlying concern that I shouldn't have said that I wasn't optimistic about season 3?

I just sent Pitmasters an e-mail asking if they are going to follow the format of season 1 or season 2. I'll let you know what their response is if I hear back. If they are following the format of season 2, I won't even bother working on a video to send in & probably wont have much interest in watching unless I know the teams selected.

Yes, I guess. We should probably be grateful for a third season. This forum has benefited greatly from the show. I've got a clue since I was a moderator that had to deal with the growth coming from season 1.

I haven't heard too many complaints from the folks that have been on the show. The complaints I have heard or read have come from those that weren't. Hindsight is perfect.

Instead of starting to pick something apart before it's rolled out, how about supporting it and hoping that it represents us well.

I am a little confused why the title of the web page says season 2 but the website says season 3.

<title>BBQ Pitmasters Season 2 begins shooting in May</title>


I hope it comes back with either format.

Edit: If you follow the link to TLC it shows a video from season 2.....something smells here. This company tbazone.com is concerning.

when the actors in the movies write the reviews for their own films this position might hold water. of course those who were on the show didn't complain.

thumbs up to all who benefitted, but let's face it, season 2 was a disappointment for alot who watched expected better or different.

*edit* not better from the competitors, but better from the format.

I would watch it if they could bring back the different competitions from the first season, and mix in a little drama for good effect. If it is another Top Chef or Iron Chef clone...I'm not going to bother.

We all know Drama sells, my bet is on season 2 format.

I still liked the first season format. I know the published said the second season format would be more accessible to a wider audience, but all of the non-BBQ people I talked to preferred the first season format as well. Season 2 was trying to be Top Chef, but I think "Best in Smoke" did a better job of being Top Chef for BBQ. The first season was more like other reality show formats, giving you a glimpse inside a world the general public doesn't know (Deadliest Catch, Ice Road Truckers, Pawn Stars). I hope they bring it back...

I have heard from a person involved in the production that they will be traveling around to different competitions again. Who knows if that is the whole story though, I would not be surprised to see some other type of twist involved. But it did sound like they are at least moving back toward the Season 1 format.

Season 1, season 2, i dont give a chit, I think it's cool to watch my friends and people I know compete on TV.It must be working for someone, they are doing it again.

All I know is a few years ago when I said I'm a competition BBQ cook most people had no clue what that meant. Now more often then not I get either "I saw that on TV!" or " am I going to see you on TV?".

Good luck to everyone that submitting a video! Represent!!!!

Gosh its bbq on tv....I remember in my main business when guitar hero hit and all the purists screamed nearly as bad as some of you... I asked them if they would have preferred it to be called Tractor Hero? I got in the game and my sales went nuts...it grew guitarists...the second game on my competition that shunned it tried to get in....
We need about four shows on the thousands of channels out there. COmpetition will make them better. Also remember what we all would find fascinating is like watching paint dry to the people buying toilet paper....just my .02

The idea is that the more exposure we get the better chance of growing.

Season 1 was a documentary, and Season 2 was a game show.

I think it's reasonable to conclude that you could separate the Brethren membership into groups of 10, poll them, and the membership would consistantly choose Season 1 over Season 2 at an 8 to 2 rate (8 like Season 1: 2 like Season 2) all day long.

But if you polled non-barbeque folk, that number would flip in the other direction.

Unless it's your hobby or you have a special interest, few want to see a documentary more than once... even one that changes slightly.

I agree with the guy who is in the "I'll take what I can get" category. Some shows, even of a Season 2 type, are better than none.

I really liked season 1 a lot but I also enjoyed season II. But then again, I like Top Chef, Iron Chef and other competition cooking shows. About the only part I didn't care for in season II was the elimination based on non-traditional BBQ. I'd rather it be for extra money and not to send someone home.

I'm not trying to equate the show to competition BBQ but I enjoyed it for what it was. I also would have preferred blind judging as I think it left open the option of biases and friendships influencing the outcome.

Shooting begins in March and schedule runs through April...

Sounds like a Season 2 type format to me. I'd speculate some of the "TV Competition" is during a real competition, but still, only shooting for 2 months...

Pretty "last minute" as well with audition tapes due Feb 9 and shooting starting March...

I'll choose season 2.

As more of a backyard BBQer with grandoise dreams. Any BBQ show is better than none. I do like watching the different cooking shows and have many friends that watch them too. If we can get more people watching and then getting on forums like this one think of the growth potential for the market and BBQ. To any Brethren submitting and participating, good luck I will be watching.:clap2:

01-30-2012, 10:19 AM
Matt, how are you?!?!

Yeah, I wish everyone best of luck, but I wont watch it. I dont watch reality-TV of any type. I particularly hate those that take great cooks/chefs of XXXX variety and make them cook YYYY. I mean, what's the point? I dont watch Survivor, nor any of those House things, nor Bachelor, nor Iron Chef, etc. I wont watch this. I'll probably read about it here on brethren and wonder why on earth someone won because they cooked a great ... I dont know, probably this year will be posdillo (1/2 possum, 1/2 armadillo).

Season 1; loved it; taped it; watched it quite a bit. Season 2, taped it, watched about 1/2 of the first two episodes, got nausea, removed them. I understand why they went to the new format; I'm just not one of their target market is all. I'm probably just too old for that stuff...

Oh, I dont watch (as said above) cupcake wars either. Didnt even know that had such a thing.

I will be watching the Superbowl this weekend, and I'll be cooking chili.

01-30-2012, 10:30 AM
To me, season 2 didn't not make the cooks look good. I'm not on to that. I tried watching them when they replayed. It was just too difficult to stomach. Awesome for those folks that were chosen, I'm not in to game shows and that's all other was. Price is Right for BBQ. And there wasn't much BBQ on the show. Cole slaw to decide a win?

I prefer the format of Season 1. I enjoyed Season 2 but only about 1/2 as much as 1. The 2 format would be better if they'd get rid of the sides and the stupid stuff (snakes, gators, frogs, etc...) and concentrate on the types of meat people really bbq.

kihrer
01-30-2012, 10:39 AM
If they aren't going to do a season 1-like show, how about the following. Take 8 teams (or how ever many episodes you want to have) and have them enter the exact same contests. Each week, feature one of the teams and show them as they buy their meat, pack, prep, cook and turn in. At the end of the 8 weeks, the teams with top two scores will do a showdown for top honors and prize money. I think the 8 teams would have to be the full-timers as it will require a lot of travel. This way it takes the best from season one and the competition from season two.

I just heard back from Pitmasters. Their response was:

Our format has yet to be locked, as we haven't determined which bbq contests we'll be filming at yet.

If they are looking at which contests they will be filming at, it sounds like a season 1 format. I don't know how they woild work the season 2 format into a contest.

They may do a hybrid. Follow x amount of teams at the same competitions and then have the top two or three for a big purse. Which wouldn't be that bad. I am interested in seeing how it all works out.

BBQ on TV is better than no BBQ on TV. At least I get a chance to see some people I know!

I seem to recall Season 2 being advertised on the TLC website. I'm just asking here, is there any reason to truly believe that this is for Season 3 of Pitmasters? I'd rather not bug Mr. Markus with a question if some one else has already done so.

Though I much preferred season one... Any BBQ show should benefit BBQ in general. I think they could work a Friday night challenge in addition to a regular competition they were filming at. OR could incorporate footage of actual contests with an outside iron chef style contest.

Who knows.

Whatever the format is... I think it will help promote BBQ

At the risk of taking quite a bit of heat for this, I'll write it none the less:

Nordy, respectfully, I'd like to disagree with you on the point where you said "any BBQ show should benefit BBQ". Mind you, I think BBQ getting air time can be a good thing. I think certain bbq-brethren getting their 15 minutes of fame is great (if they wish to get it this way). Guys like Big Mista and others it helps promote their name and resulting in more business for them (I hope). However, I think certain aspects of season 2 were insulting; insulting to cooks, insulting to competition BBQ, just plain insulting in general. It sounded to me like they were ready to have a seed and/or tobacco spittin' contest any minute, right before having to cook road-kill-surprise. To me, very little of what they were cooking had anything to do with something resembling BBQ at all. It made, IMHO, a mockery of the whole darned thing. While it may have brought on additional membership here, and I guess that's a good thing, I dont think it helped barbecue very much.

I think season 1 DID help competition barbecue, but not season 2.

Mind you, if you want to watch this, I think go for it. I love that some guys got well deserved notoriety. I hope it's helped them. For the others that go forward, I wish them well. But I dont think season 2 helped BBQ.

I understand your points, and agree with some of them on a personal level. I'd love to see the season 1 format return. It was familiar and enjoyable personally.

That being said, I think we would all be better off viewing this as a part of a process. The fact that the show is returning is HUGE. Many people seem to want a homerun. I don't believe that's fair. Competition BBQ is relatively new to television, and has had a relatively small exposure to the general population as well.

John Markus, and some others have done a lot to increase the exposure of something we enjoy and care about. What we've seen in previous years, and in coming years may not be what some would prefer, but it's a step in the right direction and an opportunity to expand the exposure we currently have.

Until I'm given a reason to not support those that are making the effort to expand something we collectively care about, I'll try to be fair in my criticism and judge each product based on merit and not speculation. Nobody stands to benefit if there is nothing in production. If you don't like the Koolaid, don't take a sip.

L.Dogs - I see your point and can't disagree with you much on a personal level. I'd have been hacked if I was on that show and asked to cook frog legs, rattlesnake etc... I guess my point is if there is BBQ on TV, it increases people talking about it, coming to message boards, coming to contests etc.

A "Season 1" type format would be my preference too.

Pass da hot sauce with the plate SirPorkaLot, please...:becky:

Anybody remember the All-Star BBQ Showdown? The first season we traveled to cook-offs but had our own competition among the people on the show. Maybe that will return?

Sure do.
There are many different ways they could take it, I will be watching for sure.

LOL Yeah that was the first time any of us heard judges criticize our food live and we didn't take it very well :)

I have that one DVD and watch now and again. I liked the fact that they didn't send people home for not knowing how to cook Pacu or eel. Of course the Daryl Dawkins giving a perfect score to the chick he thought was hot was a little disturbing. I liked that contest format better than Pitmasters season 2.

If you click on the link and watch the trailer that they put up it sure looks like season 2. If it is like season one, what do you think is the compensation? Season 2 is obviously the prize money but other than notoriety what did the season one guys get? Not that notoriety is bad. I went to Q, Lee Ann's place in Chicago, where they are charging 35 bucks for a rack of "competition" ribs.
if I owned a bbq restaurant in the Gold Coast area of Chicago I'd charge 35 bucks for ribs too..

I know what would really be good for BBQ!


I hope they have teams compete where they go parted pork versus unparted pork! And for a twist, maybe throw in a pork collar every once in a while.

I would be in for watching every episode of that. Is there anything more disputed in the world of BBQ?

The controversy and suspense would send the ratings through the roof!

Now it wasn't bashing individuals as much as the format. I'm not doing a video, do you need a dishwasher? And come on, you know it's more than like... :becky:

And I didn't forget. I came over to you to introduce myself. And you came over first thing the next morning, after I had 1 hour of sleep, catching me sleeping in my chair. Lol

i'd like to see a format like the next great baker where each pitmaster competes as an individual within a team at various contests with one getting eliminated each time. this would give the game show appeal and still show what real competition bbq is all about and you would get to follow all the drama in the tent just like the bakers when they are doing their challanges... in fact i think they should let Buddy host the show also!

I'm just bored tonight and I'm watching the first 2 episodes of season 1 that I watched as they aired. A few observations:
1. After meeting Myron and seeing how kind, cool and a nice guy he is, who is this guy on the show? Too funny what snipets of video do.
2. In the first episode with Paul from Pablo Diablo putting celantro lime whole chix in the box with a sprig of parsley and ribs dumped in a box with both finishing DAL is too funny!
3. How much I think like Tuffy Stone of Cool Smoke. I guess not a bad thing.

If anyone wants to watch season 1 for free, they are on Netflix Online and you can get a free month for free just by signing up. You can watch on your PC.

Season 1 pushed me into the World of competition BBQ. I've done 3 cookoffs to date. (My time is limited due to my life on the road). Looking forward to season 3 if it is held at actual comps.

Me too, I've done 1 comp so far. Financial constraints prevent me from doing more than 3 or 4 a year.

Anybody heard an update on all this. I helped Big Bear Shootin smoke make their video and was wondering when they are going to move on picking the teams? It must be pretty quick because they start filming in March.
