I have. Of course, I was on one of the episodes briefly when they visited Phat Matt's BBQ in Oakland.

That's great! I just caught about half an episode tonight while channel surfing, never seen it before.

They do a lot of stuff about bacon. It was interesting to see how it was shot, far more broken up and contrived than I would have expected. I have to say, the episode at Matt's, they focused on the right dish and it was as good as he made it out to be.

I watch it when i can't find anything else to watch. The host is just a slight bit disturbing to me. I find it particularly odd when a morbidly obese man of practically c*mming in his pants over food, especially very unhealthy foods.

Flame on...

Yes, I watch it but the host gets on my nerves.

I expect the season to end with him gripping his heart and falling onto a very large flat top.

They also had "United Steats of Steak" on last night. These shows are interesting but you do expect the host to have a heart attack at any time. Like Man V Food. Did anyone notice how much weight Adam gained from Episode 1 to the end of season 3? And accoridng to a story about the show, he worked out hard every morning and had a trainer who travelled with him. I have seen Adam on TV since the show ended and he has lost some weight and looks much better.

I expect that is why Adam stopped doing the challanges and now goes around and has other people doing them. He has lost a ton of weight since he stopped. He must have gained 50+ lbs during those 3 seasons.

Actually, that was the last season. There is no more MvF. What you see now are all reruns. Adam does have a new show though.

On one of the episodes their was a so called "millionaires bacon" The owner of the restaurant claimed it took him months of trial and error to invent it. Turned out to be pig candy.
