Looks like BBQ central radio show is having John Markus on the show tomorrow and some of the teams that made it. Does anyone know who those teams are?

I hope that LargeMister guy isn't on there. Everywhere you turn, that guy is in your face. Even when I was trying to get some ideas for an office makeover. There he was on TV.

Irritating.

Has anyone else been contacted who turned in a audition?

I'm betting BBQ Central Show Tuesday night will have a huge audience awaiting any hints from John M. on what Season 3 will be like.

I doubt that they will, but I hope they move back to the season one comp format, no artificial B.S. to add "drama"...

02-21-2012, 10:42 PM
I haven't heard anything. I even emailed them for details to see when they were going to tell anyone. Guess we will see. Do you know if that is the case about the radio show?

Muzzlebrake
02-21-2012, 10:42 PM
I missed the show, did they announce who will be on?

Smokin' Joe
02-21-2012, 10:53 PM
No - John said he didnt even know who was on yet.

1- They aren't done screening videos
2- the show format "will make diehard BBQers happy"
3- he could do jail time for just being on Rempe's show let alone giving many details
4- the show will air on Discovery Destination

That sums up the first 30 minutes of the interview

rockytopsmokies
02-21-2012, 11:06 PM
So Joe, I assume if you haven't heard anything, that's a good sign. Ya'll had a great video. I just listened to the show. He said there are 15 spots, so looks like the chances could still be good. I didn't do anything special except be real and show who I was and what I could do. Sounds like thats what might work. We will see. Could you keep in touch and let me know if ya'll hear anything?

Smokin' Joe
02-21-2012, 11:25 PM
4- season 3 "will make some bbq events around the country very happy"
5- the episodes will start to air around memorial day
6- John is working on a film/documentary on the first season pitmasters trip to Kuwait to cook for the troops
7- this film will likely premier this summer sometime
8- they have it narrowed down to 30 right now and by next Monday or Tuesday they need to have it down to 15

Thats the recap of the last 30 min

Matt_A
02-21-2012, 11:27 PM
He said that die-hard fans of Season 1 will LOVE this season.... Hmmm...

Nordy
02-21-2012, 11:31 PM
As they were finishing he said that they were down to 30 teams and the final 15 will be picked and notified by Monday/Tuesday of next week. He also mentioned he would try to publish a cast list, possibly even by the time of next Tuesday night's show.


Dang missed Joe's post... sorry for the duplicate

Scottie
02-22-2012, 10:16 AM
So I wonder who the "familiar faces" will be? I know a couple of folks, if they make it, I won't want to watch.... so it will be Tuffy, Myron, Johnny, LeeAnn, and ???? Rod will be there (my opinion)... so who else?

BC Squared

Which network did he say was carrying the show? Seems like i remember Discovery being in the first part of the name but it wasn't the Discovery channel. I don't think Verizon has the channel which is a real bummer for me.

Sorry. I see that Smokin' Joe already gave the channel. Discovery Destination isn't one I get. That sucks!

sweetracks
02-23-2012, 07:30 AM
I didn't see Discover Destination on the listing of their networks :confused: Thats coming right off of the Discovery site. Maybe they are launching a new network around Memorial Day

Bad news! I was hoping the 2012 season wouldn't be the STUPID FORMAT where Myron sits at a table and judges..........fast forward to 16:32 in this video:

Mrs. McFrankenboo

I thought John Markus said on Rempe's show that some competitions were going to be really happy so maybe they are going to have a separate ancillary category for the Pitmasters?

Parts_Guy
02-27-2012, 05:34 PM
Thanks for the link Snyper. That sucks they are doing the the same format as season 2.

Rob Albach

Yeah! looks that way......Lets hope for a hybrid type of show.....and for for sure if there's a host please not the one from season 2!!!!!!!!!!!

Big things come from small towns. Everbody knows where to come to get good bbq (we are the only bbq catering around though)

Don't be shy, who was the team that got in?

I find it a bit odd that we have only heard of one person. 160 videos and the. BBQ community is pretty small I would have thought we would have heard more

Smoke on the Water BBQ & Bluegrass Festival (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Smoke-on-the-Water-BBQ-Bluegrass-Festival/142671701203)


Holy Great News Batman! SOTW is Totally Psyched about BBQ PitMasters choosing SOTW 2012 to be highlighted on their TV show during their 3rd season! They will be there all day Friday and all day Saturday highlighting our festival. We are expecting over 50 of the best cooks in the South East plus a pretty jamming music lineup. Can you tell we are excited? Make sure you dress up pretty just in case you are on national TV. Give me a Heck Yeah (PG Version) if you are ready for SOTW

This is an FBA event in Thomaston Georgia

Mrs. McFrankenboo
02-28-2012, 01:57 PM

The calls are being made folks. I know three people who have initially agreed to be on the show. One has posted publicly on FB. Before you ask, I am not one of them and although I have not been told not to say, I would prefer to not name any one just now.

I made it pretty far casting in the Biggest fat lard (loser) and we were constantly reminded to keep our mouths shut. Also, they never called to tell you that you didn't make it, if they stopped asking for info, then you knew you were cut. Sorry if I am bursting anyone's bubble, that's just what happened for that show. On a better note, when I received my first call from the casting director, it was 1030 pm so you never know..... Still some time for us west coasters ;)
