I read a Twitter post from BBQ Pitmasters creator John Markus recently announcing the narrowing of the field for the season 2 cast. It took me awhile to warm up to Season 1. Having competed in KCBS contests for several years, what I was watching on TV and what I actually experienced at bbq contests did not match up well.
After the 3rd episode, my attitude toward the show changed a little and it started to grow on me. I began to realize that some of the hype was necessary to draw a bigger audience (and advertisers to pay the bills), but that doesn't mean I agreed with all of it.
I wonder what Season 2 will bring?
