Should BBQ Pit-masters go back to the season 1 Format?
 
I'm a big fan of the show, but last nights episode mirrored season 1 which I happened to like better. So Brethren what's the consensus? The current format or move back to season 1?

seemed more authentic when they featured 3-4 teams that were competing against hundreds. Even if the teams you were watching didnt win, I liked it. The format of just the 3 teams competing doesn't seem right. And the fact that they "force" the smack talk doesn't add much to the show.

Season 1 was my favorite.

Season 1 by far...
I didn't care if they got 49th in ribs, I want to see the process.

I loved Season one... speaking of the recent season, last nights Episode has not been added to Youtube yet even though I've paid for it!

I only watched a few episodes of season one. Too much "Reality TV drama queen" chit for me.

I think season two, without the run to the truck and stupid side challenges, is the way to go. Give the competitors some meat and a side, and some time, and see what they can do. Whoever cooks the best meal wins.

Absolutely. The phony bickering really doesn't help. On top of which by actually showing the different competitions it really added a dimension to the show. Hopefully they change the format.

The only thing i didnt like about last night was my wife constantly complaining how annoying the son was.

I personally like season 1 type as it was them vs everyone else but due to the fact "them" didn't win too often set it back as far as tv goes (not good for tv when the stars fail). I'd personally like to see them follow a rookie team in a kinda "so you want to compete in bbq contests so here's what it's like" & maybe have long time teams in it like Myron, Bubba Q, etc that we've seen & know. Maybe create a new rookie team each year???

In her defense, he was pretty annoying. But no more so than Myron. :tsk:

Like father like son but that was just for tv

That's a great idea. Kinda like they did with Pablo Diablo BBQ.

I actually like the Season 2 format (which I assume is similar in Season 3/4?? made it that far yet) better, but only if they got rid of/changed the side challenges. I thought it was stupid to send a team off because they had the worst side. I'm with CD... best set up would be pick a meat and a side and see who wins.

However I understand that since it's made for TV and they are going for "drama" they probably need to keep the challenges in the middle. My suggestion would be to not punish a team for last, but reward a team for first. Some kind of advantage...they can pick if the go 1st, 2nd, or so on...they get 10 extra minutes to plate, etc... Might not be a "realistic" comp but it's also a reality show so...

The only thing I didn't like about the first season was that it was the same teams. There were parts of that I found interesting but I like seeing different teams compete...you get more different processes. Johnny Trigg isn't changing the way he makes his ribs...after an episode it's the same stuff. When you change teams you get different styles.

I really liked Season 3s format, but they didn't go into their processes enough. And more discussion & interaction between the Judges. Also, I was hoping for an episode where the judges had to do Brisket, Pulled Pork & Ribs and have the winners of each round Judge them. That would have been fun.

Wow, Look at the poll so far,not even close. I hope Destination America reps see this.
