BBQ Goes Hollywood -- Food Network's "Best in Smoke" competition airing in May

  1. Famous Dave Anderson, BBQ legend and founder of Famous Dave's Bar-B-Que, along with Charlie Torgerson, director of culinary, will be featured in Food Network's Best In Smoke competition, a new four episode program that premieres Sunday, May 8, 2011.

    The article I saw on this series was in QSR Magazine's Newsletter this morning. Obviously, Famous Dave's has grabbed this as a promotional opportunity (and I'll bet the other contestants will eventually). More power to 'em I guess. This show probably won't teach the majority of the folks on this forum much -- but it might make good entertainment. Just thought I'd throw it out there for any interested.

    You can find the whole article at this link --- but it will probably only work for a few days.

  5. This is probably me whining and complaining, but.....

    How can you time a competition on smoking meats?  Meat gets done smoking when it's done......right?

    I've got this on the DVR and I'm looking forward to it. I have a feeling Food Network, being a food-focused channel, will do things better than TLC did with Pitmasters. Plus, some of the smokers they put in the commercial for this show look pretty cool!
