Although I watch a fair number of cooking shows on TV from time to time, I generally haven’t followed the recent BBQ-themed shows as closely as one might expect. Part of this is due to lack of cable/satellite at home; part is I’d rather be cooking than watching TV. Having said that, I do plan on setting the DVR for The Ultimate BBQ Showdown set to air on CBS Saturday, May 28 at 11:00 AM PDT. Check your local listings for the time in your area; it appears to be on before a golf tournament.
The competitors are all respected names in BBQ, as are the judges. Joining the battle for bragging rights, the Kingsford Cup and a whole lot of cash are the well-known Myron Mixon from Jack’s Old South; Tuffy Stone from Cool Smoke; Neil “Bigmista” Strawder from Bigmista’s BBQ; and the guy who put Bubba in Bub-Ba-Q, Bubba Latimer. The show is sponsored by Kingsford, those friendly folks that make my charcoal briquettes of choice and sponsor Grilling.com where my articles show up (with my permission) from time to time.
