American Barbecue Showdown

We all love cooking competitions but barbecue is a whole other kind of competition and this show is a one of a kind barbecue competition. Something that makes this show so good is the down-to-earth competitors who are all pros in what they do but are the nicest competitors. They are all extremely talented in barbecuing which takes hours of labor and love into their food. If you are more into homey food shows, this is definitely one that you should add to your list!
