Mr. Wayne,UNFORTUNATELY ,MOST Memphis Bbq is disappointing nowadays.:mad: There are a FEW good ones left but not many.The good ones are in a part of town that you need armed bodyguards to visit.There are a few newer one but they are so commercialized it is sickening.

Well I might have to get my wife to quit watching it. Was cutting up some brisket to make some chili tonight and she warmed up a slice and eat it, said it was tender and tasted good but I needed to work on the smoke ring :cool: I think she likes the show more than I do.

That's a shame....

I guess what I meant was these guys were able to cook 5 or 6 racks... but only needed to turn in 3-wet, and 3-dry ribs...... and the judges could hardly tell the styles apart. Then, the cooks each used 3 chickens to come up with a pile of pulled white meat, and a pile of pulled dark meat..... two of 'em didn't really pull the meat, and one turned in undercooked meat. Then,... the judges said that 1 point separated first from third place..... ouch.

Their chicken were all over the place... apparently they didnt listen to the whole "pulled chicken" rule. The ribs looked great though, except tied dye. so far its my least favorite show of the season, the other two episodes had better lookin' 'cue. The right guy won but it was a weak showing for "Memphis, king of BBQ" JMHO this is still better then watching American Idol, the Voice, or any other dumb singing show

^^^Amen Brother!, It's nice to see the guys we compete against week in and week out performing well on a show like this and generating more and more interest in BBQ.

I'm not sure the right guy won. I'm sure he's a great cook and all and might have been better than the others but how can someone who does not follow directions win? They asked for pulled chicken with both light and dark meat.

And as far as the less than a point seperating them......maybe the judges are just trying too hard not to make anyone mad. Seems lame to me.

Either way I agree that this show was not as good as the other two but I will keep watching it.

Yea, this episode wasn't that good IMO. These guys seemed to have a hard time following the rules and I really don't understand how you can undercook chicken with all the time you have to get it done. 2 of these guys are Q rest. owners and I got the feeling that they don't spend much time manning their pits anymore. Could be wrong.

I just took the less then one point separating them as a sign of how poor each one of them did.

They only had a five hour window to make the cooks. No doubt the ribs needed to get started but these were BB's not spares.
But how come they didnt get the chicken swimming first? At best they had a one hour brine.

At least there should've been a NSF disclaimer... without it would imply acceptable practices and standards.

Clean and sanitize procedures? Sure... break down that bandsaw!

Yep, I was carrying my Concealed Carry when visiting Marlowe's in Aug.. I wasnt that impressed with the food, as was expecting better.:mad2: being from Mexifornia, what do I know about BBQ?? Did have some good stuff just north of Lexington, KY at Fat Boys BBQ..:clap2:

I thought the exact same thing. I was wondering if he was just gonna chuck the bucket o rub after prepping the birds or not. I see that kind of stuff all the time on both TV and on the comp circuit and always wonder how it gets missed. People just don't seem to get that when you put on a pair of gloves it's not some magical barrier that doesn't cross-contaminate. You STILL have to be concsious of what you're handling even if you have gloves on.

I was at a comp once where a guy put on gloves, made beef hamburger patties, cooked them and then proceeded to sit down and EAT the burger WITH THE GLOVES STILL ON! :doh::shocked:

When they brought out the band saw I started to glance over at my wife and she instantly responded, "no freaking way dont even get any ideas...." :doh:


When I saw the band saw, my first thought was........now if they didn't know what they were cooking, HOW did they know to bring THAT? Perhaps they just brought the whole restaurant just in case, but.....?

I do have to say I like Tuffy and Aaron as judges. I think they gave some constructive criticism and myron seems to have mellowed out a little.

Dissapointing episode, Tie Dye followed the chicken rules and his ribs were just a little dark. Big deal. Wish he won

Could be wrong.

Especially when you have 3 birds..... cook the breast perfectly on two of them, select the finest white meat from them and forget the dark meat. On the third one, don't worry about the breast, cook the dark meat to 180+ and use it in the box. :rolleyes:

They only had a five hour window to make the cooks. No doubt the ribs needed to get started but these were BB's not spares. But how come they didnt get the chicken swimming first? At best they had a one hour brine.

What's wrong with injecting your brine? I do that all the time with a slightly lite version,..... injecting is better than thinking that osmosis will work in one hour........ 'cause it won't.

At least the one whi turned in raw meat in a cooking contest lost and the one that cooked the most authentic Memphis style BBQ won. That's a lot better than what we saw in season 2 with sliced pork and cole slaw winning a pulled pork contest.

I live in Seattle where it's on channel 695. But the network you are looking for is Destination America.
