BBQ Rig Race

Post by Smokin Mike »

There's a new BBQ competition show on Food Network called BBQ Rig Race. This is from the web site
Four teams of top pit masters compete in a series of cook-offs that take them on a wild road trip through the heart of Texas, hosted by Michael Mixon. The final two face off for ultimate bragging rights and a giant $10,000 prize.

My impression is it's just another made for TV competition. It's like all the other ones with surprises and drama but I found it somewhat entertaining watching them solve problems. Worth a look if you don't have anything else to do.

I can honestly say I have never sat through any of the PitMasters shows I am just not into reality TV.
I have met and visited with a lot of the stars on the shows and can say they are all great folks. I am a certified head judge for IBCA "International Barbecue Cookers Association" and judge an event in Marksville Louisiana at the Casino. I have had the pleasure several times to sit down and have breakfast with Johnny Trigg "The godfather of BBQ". Being a head judge and head cook I can say there is skill set needed and an abundance of luck to get your number called on any given day.
