I am kind of worn out on it. Its not really fun to watch anymore after it has become so game showish so to speak.

I'd like to see them do another season like the 1st season. I like both set ups, but it'd be nice to mix it up with another behind the scenes contest tour like season 1.

Little bit of heat. Little bit of sweet

Yea I usually re-watch those seasons when Myron and other pros participate in contests on netflix. Can't stand the recent layout of BBQ Pitmasters.

Yep. I subject my wife to a season 1 marathon pretty regularly. Jonny Trigg threatening to whoop everybody, Myron cussin up a storm. It's classic.

I think much like other reality shows, these things eventually run out of material that keeps viewer's interest. Look no further than Duck Dynasty. The show has evolved so much that if you go back and look at the shows that made the show exceedingly popular and compare it to what it is now. It's changed a lot. Nothing on tv is forever.

Lots of sweet with a little heat on the back end. They all say the same thing. They never give information u can't learn from smoking a couple times. I enjoy watching the Netflix ones cuz Johnny trig and Myron Mixon are awesome but hearing every new bbq enthusiast repeat the same thing on every show is worn out. More and more people now rolling with commercial bbq sauce blends like Johnny trig as well. Be innovative and do something different And I'll start watching again.

I think herein lies the problem. You get to a point with content that the next progression would be to start giving away secrets. Which we all know ain't gonna happen. Outside of people's personal information that distinguishes them from others, you're basically stuck talking about basic stuff that once you've covered it you've covered it. You run out of material pretty quick.

When they switched formats to include the "Sidewinder Challenge" and eliminate a team for cooking snake & etc. I lost interest. That being said, if there is nothing else on I would watch an episode.

Hay its BBQ and or grilling related I enjoy the show. Do I like the 1st season better? Of course I do.... It is nice seeing some teams I have competed against on the show with a chance win some nice cash. I support BBQ Pitmasters and BBQ Wars.

I mostly watch to see what people are smoking on rather than listening about their "flavor profiles". That said, I do get sucked in and need to see who wins...

I've always enjoyed the show. I thought the 1st season was the best one but I've learned quite a bit from it too. Found some of the characters pretty inspiring (ie: Melissa Cookston and Moe Cason)

I still enjoy it, not as much as the first season or pit wars though. Its fun to watch some differing styles of cooking.

i think they did a show in the vien of the original including mixon. I believe its called bbq pit wars or something. I remember catching an episode awhile back. That or i was just really high one day and imagined it.

Loved the first season and it is just ok after that.

There is another version of Pitmaster's, I think it's BBQ Pit Wars which is Myron & a couple of others competing in actual contests but it's more of who's the best among them wins regardless of how they do overall in the contest. It's ok but I wish they'd have one where they follow 1 rookie team during a season to show the trials & tribulations of contests.

They say the new version gets way better ratings then season one. I think the word just spread about bbq and the show and season 1 would do just as good now as the rest of the seasons.

I can't tell all but during my hanging out with Tuffy time last week I got a bit of info. Seems as if this year it all takes place in one spot on a ranch/farm. The set is greatly improved and he was very enthusiastic about that, and the show in general. Should be starting up in May on Destination. He really thinks people will like it.

I couldn't bear it after they tell you the whole great story of team competing for money to rebuild their BBQ place that burned down. All they cook is pork and they get pork shoulder and then get sent home for cooking bad catfish or something stupid. I couldn't cheer for anyone else that round and lost interest. Although Kyle ash blasting the camera was awesome. I know someone else remembers that :-D

So like the last episode of Season 1

It would be more enjoyable for me if that required each team to film a segment showing the public how to cook one of their favorite recipes. That segment could provide fill in place of stilted cracks being traded while the cooks are in process. I watch to try to learn techniques and to pick up a few tips. Adding a teaching section regarding various dishes (they would not have to give out their competition secrets), would boost viewership, I believe.
