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.
