        If it's like other cookin' shows, they will give them some strange ingredients like kangaroo tail and kumquats to cook in 30 minutes...

        I saw the ad for this over the weekend. I piqued my interest enough that added it to my record list. Michael Symon is a nut.

              As I read it Bobby and Michael are the hosts with teams of other barbeque'rs. But we will see. But it should be fun they are best friends, golf together, even take vacations together with their families. Both Iron Chefs.

                  Another reality tv show, I pass. Too bad these excellent chefs continue to sell out for the sake of celebrity.

                  Might I suggest a real food series called Taco Chronicles on Netflix that has a 6 episode series just on the various tacos in Mexico. Well worth watching and learning some culinary history.

                    That may prove true, but watching an episode before drawing a conclusion won't hurt me. After all, Boddy did BBQ Addiction before BBQ was cool.

                    Hey I'm sure it will be good entertainment mstruth. I've watched Bobby's Grillin' and Chillin' show for quite a while, often times pick up on some good recipes. It's just when they get into these challenges that it just gets too game show like for me. I really miss the old days of the Food Network where they actually cooked on tv.

                  Anyone else watch the first episode? Finding it hard to believe Tuffy Stone would be up for elimination so quickly against some of the other "pitmasters" he's been paired with, especially over a pork chop.

                    I watched too. I was not that impressed. Now if Flay and Simon actually cooked something, I would watch all day.

                    Same thoughts about Tuffy - was also surprised he was a "contestent" given the # of times he was a judge on MM's BBQ Pitmasters show. I think I'm one-and-done.

                    Same thoughts about Tuffy. It just seemed weird that he is a contestant and not a judge. Same with Lee Ann Whippen.

                  @kflowers they did cook in the first show and last night. Surprised Tuffy went out in the first round but he was judged by his peers some of the best.

                  The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                  Placeholder

                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                  The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                  This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.
