    Don't know anything about the show, just that there was a post about it a couple of weeks ago and some ads on tv.  Hope it isn't as lame as some of the other stuff they have had on about Q and smoking,

    I agree the last couple shows they had  were not very good   hoping this one will be realistic

    I realize that not everyone shares the same taste in programming. I turned on the program, and within the first ten minutes it had the familiar ring of another reality show. After thirty-four minutes into it, I grabbed the remote for something different. It just didn't have enough substance for me, although I'm sure others may have enjoyed it.

    Save the planet... it's the only;y one with Q.

    Actually I thought it was one of the better Q shows that I have seen recently.  Basic cuts of meat with basic challenges.   I am disappointed that the competitors are limited to 4 hours for prep and cooking which takes away low and slow for anything larger then skinny ribs or fish.  The chicken dish in the first challenge had no color on the skin and the judges said the fat had not been rendered but the meat was dry.  Only thing I can think about that is that he didn't have enough time to cook it.

    The young man that owns "The Shed" is working hard to get his own show and I hope I don't have to watch him trying to be the biggest Redneck he can be the entire series.

    I'll watch it again as long as the focus is on the cooking and not on the personalities.

    Why would you have a show about smoking and only allow 4 hours prep/cook time. Seems like you're setting them all up for failure.

    I was watching the hockey game when at 10:20pm  my wife reminded me this show was on. I turned it on.... and turned it off within about three minutes.

    Why does all this stuff have to be presented as drama nowadays? It's all utterly unwatchable; I really don't learn a lot from watching people scurry about in fear of being chopped.

    Well just listening to the format tells me that there is no need for me to watch this show. I hate when they have that style of format where they are eliminating people and they have a certain amount of time to get stuff done. I refuse to watch shows like that. My wife watches all of that cake making competitions and crap and I refuse to watch it. I miss the fist season of BBQ Pit Masters.

    I watched it but it did not do anything for me. Just the same ol stuff with to much smoke flowing around. The guy that owns the Shed got his start on TV from Diners Drive Inns and Dives. One of my favorite shows..

    That place sounds cool to me. I saw him on DDD. Looks like it would be a fun place to try.

    I agree with you guy's. I didn't tune in for a personality contest. It barley has anything to do with smoking? How about taping a few teams prepping for a competition!! That would be interesting?

    I ate Shed BBQ one time at a street fair in Pass Christian when they had a trailer set up.  I wasn't impressed but I do acknowledge that it was at a street fair and I judge it against what my friends and I can do.  Just goes to show you that so much of what makes a BBQ business successful is salesmanship and personality.
