I really don’t think there’s much that needs to be said about this one. Slated for release on September 18, The American Barbecue Showdown seems like the most self-explanatory (and the most American) title of all time. It’ll have eight episodes, lots of meat, and lots of barbecues. What more could anyone want?
Anyway, the show’s got a trailer now. It’ll join a whole host of other cooking shows among Netflix’s thumbnails.
The American Barbecue Showdown is an eight episode food competition series that follows the country’s best backyard smokers and competitive barbecuers as they compete for the title of American Barbecue Champion. The series is hosted by Rutledge Wood and Lyric Lewis, with judging duties falling on barbecue legends Kevin Bludso and Melissa Cookston. Each episode, Kevin and Melissa will task the cookers with a challenge that will test their barbecue skills in ways they couldn’t possibly imagine. From unique meats to old school techniques, they will have to prove they have the skills to smoke another day.
