Editorial Reviews

Part chef, part jock, part drill sergeant the BBQ Pitmasters walk what they talk, and live for the grill. Myron Mixon, Johnny Trigg, Gary, Paul, Tuffy, LeeAnn and more go face-to-face, tong-to-tong, to see who s the best. But it s not all grease, sweat and tears. There s plenty of support and camaraderie among this band of BBQ brothers and sisters. They live to compete, but they are all in it together, all for the love of the grill. This DVD collection pulls together four flame-broiled BBQ Pitmaster episodes. Watch the showdown at the high-stakes American Royal Invitational in Kansas City. Dig into the competition and camaraderie at the Diamond State BBQ Championship in Dover, DE. Be a part of a real Texas shootout - Johnny Trigg challenges his closest friends and fiercest rivals to compete in an all-rib cook-off. And Myron defends his title as the King of Hog at the oldest BBQ event in Georgia - the Big Pig Jig.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining look at competition barbecue August 22, 2012
This video includes episodes from the first season of BBQ Pitmasters on TLC. The show has re-tooled its format in each of the subsequent seasons, and season one is the most "authentic" as it follows several teams of BBQ contestants taking part in national competitions against dozens or even hundreds of opponents. Later seasons followed a format similar to the Food Network show "Chopped" with closed, elimination-style tournaments created specifically for the TV show. These episodes provide a deeper look inside the world of competition barbecue.

The competitors selected for the show are a colorful bunch, and much of the focus is on the personality of the cooks. Each of the teams has their own unique style and methods, and as the video's description implies, there is as much camaraderie demonstrated as there is hard-nosed competition. You also learn a lot about the workings of barbecue contests, such as how various events are sanctioned, the different rules for judging, and the massive scope of the events. All of this is missing from later seasons, which feel more like a cooking game show.

Bottom line is, this is a fun show to watch, and I don't mind saying I've seen most of the episodes more than once. If you're a BBQ fan, you'll enjoy it, and if you know little about "real" barbecue, it may set you on a journey to learn what all the fuss is about.

I would have given it 5 stars but it only has a few episodes. It's not the entire first season which is described in the description. Wish it had all the season 1 episodes but great show and informative for those looking at getting into BBQ comps

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining if you are really into BBQ. July 6, 2012
By Shane
Verified Purchase
I'm really into BBQ, so I bought this DVD as just another thing to watch that relates to my interests. It only has 5 episodes on it. It pretty much follows a select few guys to various BBQ competitions in which they all have to cook the same type of meat and get judged accordingly. It was neat to see how judges in different parts of the country vary on what they like. The characters in the show are all pretty likeable, and it's not really boring to watch. You can tell that some of the "drama" and "animosity" between contestents is played up for the sake of "reality" programming. If you are really into BBQ, it's fun to see a couple "secrets" on cooking or flavoring, and to see how well certain cuts of meat are displayed. I can't really picture anyone who is NOT interested in BBQ to be really interested in this show. But, if you DO love BBQ and have an extra $15 laying around, then this show is worth watching. At least renting.

Theme song of BBQ Pitmasters
Pitmasters used Social Distortion's cover of Ring of Fire as music for one of their commercials. The actual theme played at the beginning of the show is listed in the credits as "original music" and is probably a "sounds like" version. Not the actual song, but close enough to... Read More
