I really doubt that season 1 format will ever return. The cost of production for that type format would be very high. There is also the fact that your "stars" may not win or even get calls. I am glad they dropped all the hokey stuff from season 2. What they have now is probably the best blend in terms of general audience appeal and us BBQ fanatics who, face the facts, are a very small segment of their audience.
