Just finished watching this on the DVR. Never been to Grinders but i glad he lost. And that's what the producers want. They want you to like some people and hate some people. Stretch came across as a real D-bag. Tim & Rod were fun to watch for how they cooked and their food looked AWESOME. Stretch didn't seem to much about BBQ. Never saw a pit on fire before. Tried to through around some culinary terms as well. I think he called it "O JUICE" once.
I do like the format this year. Season 1 was really fun to watch. 2 & 3 sucked. I actually forced myself to watch most of season 2 foolishly thinking it would get better. This is like the last episode of season 1. Johnny Trigg's Shootout.
