The Re-Ignited episodes have scenes that were edited out of the original airing. The deleted/extended scenes range from very helpful (actually explaining what sugar cookie in the Texas BBQ episode, as opposed to the original unclear mumbling by Aaron Franklin) to added questioning/critiques from the judges to the contestants (I know this happened on the Kansas City BBQ and Kentucky BBQ episodes), to some useless jibber jabber between the teams (Georgia BBQ episode).
I noticed these because I had them playing in the background as I did chores around the house and also while playing video games.
