Tuned in for the series premiere of BBQ Pitmasters series on The Learning Channel (TLC) last night. I have to say that I really enjoyed it. I thought it was an accurate portrayal of what goes on at a contest from a cook's perspective. Even included a massive storm and a flat tire!
I liked that it profiled a few of the big, nationally known cooks, but also a relatively new team, and one that had never competed before and had absolutely no clue what they were doing. The guy Paul Peterson probably thought KCBS was a California TV station before that weekend.
If you haven't seen it yet, give it a look. It won't disappoint. New episodes air Thursdays at 10PM eastern, but it replays several times during the week, next Sunday at 1PM and Monday at 10PM.
I'd also like to suggest Q Haven for season two. I might be willing to let someone spray me down with mustard on camera. Also I think "Drunk Ted" might be good TV. I have a feeling our team could turn the show into a drama!
