Unfortunately, marketing execs do not pay attention to a small group of vocal "purists" like we are .

The only poll they are interested in is the ratings numbers which generate ad sales and revenue and that is why they are in business.

I totally understand that.

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.

Default Season one defiantly..

I think they should just pick a few teams to follow on each episode "Event".... Who cares if its Myron or Tuffy... I want to see some other people too... is this not suppose to be a reality show????

I love all of it - i am not going to be picky when there aren't many bbq show alternatives!

That said, I miss season one - it was better than all the others combined.

I like the format of season 1. I quit watching after the second episode of the second season because it was stupid. I've watched a couple episodes of this season and it's made me interested in watching again. I cooked at the event when they were in Texas (Bedford Blues Fest) and found it to be annoying that they were there and not competing with us. Also DivaQ was there filming her show and that was annoying as well. I think by following a specific team around, the film crews will learn how to coexist with the team that they're following and stay out of the other competitors ways. In the current format, they park the RV right in the middle of the competition field and make us have to deal with them, instead of vice-versa like it should be.

I do, however, think that they should "make" the teams compete in different formats. KCBS, ICBA, and all the other ones. The competition scene is so vastly different across the country that it would be nice to showcase all of them.

Ask the guys from American Chopper how a personal relationship gets ruined because of a reality show.

I preferred the season 1 format, but as others have mentioned, there are a lot more variables, and hard to say for sure the few folks they follow would consistently win. Even the best lose sometimes.

I think their target is more the folks that think the idea of competition is interesting, as opposed to those already actively engaged in it

It honestly seems as though this poll comes up every season since season 2 began.
