Check out what I got. The odd thing is you have to live in certain states only. They must be trying to control over head.

Sounds to me like they are setting it up for a 'which bbq style is the best in the nation' type event. Pit teams from the same state against each other and the winner of each state represents that state in the final to determine the best bbq style. Having 6 states/regions tells me they could easily do a final where you turn in 6 pieces kcbs style. Just a thought!?!?!

Looks like teams from the west of Texas are out of luck again.

Yes, new format change again, regional style BBQ showcase and cook off, apparently there is no BBQ in the Northeast, or west of KC....

I don't like it. I liked the first season more than any. They followed a hand full of teams around to comps and you got to become a fan of one team or another.
It also gave a much better feel to what our sport is about and what we do each weekend.

The show hasn't even filmed yet, and people already don't like it?

It's not the show, it's the suggested format "we" don't like. I personally liked season one, even if the featured teams didn't win all the time. I think it gives the rest of us some hope when we see folks like Myron come in 31st on one show, and then GC the next one! :thumb:

Season 1 was the best format. If they wanted to pit teams against each other, why not use the numeric scores from each contest and track them over the season? I think one of the problems the producers had with season one was seeing their teams have low finishes. Seeing a tracked team place 36th in chicken isn't exciting, but if you keep a running total of team scores over the course of the "season" it's more relevant and interesting to viewers.

I think we can all agree season two sucked.

Season three was pretty good. Maybe not as good as season one, but probably a lot less expensive to film. It was good enough that ZBQ might have considered applying for season 4, but I guess we don't live in the right state. For competition BBQ, are there really big regional differences? Nobody from NC is going to be chopping up a whole hog for KCBS.

Each season draws the same comments.
SO--here is what y'all need to do.

Those that do not like the show should pool their money and make a series that suits them.
If it is a commercial success and makes them money, they can do it again next season.
If not, they can pony up the $$ and try again.

Should be Easey Peasey :grin: :grin:

I'm sure that will make for some good TV. But so would seeing a team from Boston or LA beating up on a traditional region.

Do you need some dishwashers or bartenders? I can think of some 'A' quality guys ready to assist. Some even have TV experience. Especially with butter... ;)

I hope that I get picked to do the show and they ask us to cook meatloaf. I recently bought a book that has a good recipe. keith

Ha! This gives them a reason to recycle Trigg and Mixon back into the show. Maybe they will throw Aaron in there as well.

Now where's my cherry rub?

How good of a mutton cooker are ya Podge? That is the style of bbq Kentucky is known for.

This show is taylored to my neighbor who knows zero about about BBQ. Every time an episode airs I go up about 10 notches in respect. I don't care what the format is as long as BBQ is on tv.... The more interest in BBQ this show creates the better for me.

I'm a hell of a mutton cook, mike !:razz: It's kind of a shame how just 2 BBQ joints in western Kentucky can speak for the entire state, that we are mutton cooks. There's a heck of a lot of great BBQ'ers here, that can cook anything, and do a damn good job of it !

Why? He has quite a following and is more than likely one of the most well known pitmasters right now. I think he was awkward at first but he started falling into the role better towards the end.

2, is that all it is. I have only heard about it on tv and the way it is talked about, you would think that it was all over.

Yall definitely have some good cooks, thats for sure.

Well, there's 2 major ones. The ones that are the most popular that are seen on TV.

Well if anybody really wants to get on the show, all you have to do is play a good reality TV character. I'm thinking "Drag Queen BBQ" whould be a shoe-in.
