Who Won Barbecue Showdown Season 2

Who won Barbecue Showdown Season 2? We discuss the Season 2 finale of Barbecue Showdown, which contains major spoilers.

At the time of writing this article, the sun is slowly starting to break its way through the haze of clouds that covers the UK both physically and metaphorically.

With what we call a Bank Holiday in the UK looming before us, thoughts start to turn towards visiting the beach, annoying our neighbors, and cooking meat outdoors.

The barbecue has never really taken off in the UK as it has perhaps in other warmer climates such as Australia and the USA.

Yes, we have given it a go, and over the last decade, it has become slightly more attainable here, but as far as our barbecuing talents go, we are still in the nursery compared to our grilling counterparts.

You are more likely to see oddly sun burnt and pale beachgoers over here, huddled around a disposable foil-wrapped tray of cremated sausage meat on a damp beach towel, desperately trying to cook an edible artifact in some weird sun-worshipping ritual.

It seems that we don’t understand barbecues, and like Reese’s Pieces and Root Beer, it’s available to us, but we don’t really get the concept, but we try anyway.

So you can see why a show like American Barbecue Showdown would be attractive.

For the worldwide community that can barbecue. it is a template to follow and emulate, and for those that can’t do it, we can sit back in awe at the art it should be.

However, suppose you can’t be bothered with watching the whole show and want to know who won season two of the cooking show. In that case, we can help, as this underdone article will explain who won The American Barbecue Showdown Season 2, so you can get back to your raw hamburger meat and soggy buns.

Who was the Runner-Up of Barbecue Showdown Season 2?

The show comes to an exciting final, with Thyron “Big T” Matthews and Logan Sandoval head to head in the season finale. After a nail-biting final, Logan Sandoval is the runner-up.

Who Won Barbecue Showdown Season 2?

Thyron “Big T” Matthews was the ultimate winner of Season 2, being crowned The American Barbecue Champion.

Who is Thyron Matthews, and Where is he now?

The Barbecue Showdown winner has done very well in his chosen field and has his website (T&T BBQ) if you want to see how a real barbecue king goes about his business.

Thyron is no stranger to this art, with nearly thirty years of experience in cooking meat outdoors.

Raised on a farm in Florida, barbecuing was always a staple of his home life, and he had plenty of homegrown recipes to bring to the table or grill.

He would start his own business out of his passion and love for cooking.

Thyron runs the business out of Iowa with his uncle, offering catering services, and of course, he has a sauce you can also buy online in case you want to pour it over your feeble attempts.

Handily Thyron also has his own YouTube channel that you can check out and see how it should be done.

Who is Logan Sandoval, and Where is he now?

Logan was, of course, the runner-up in Season 2 of Barbecue Showdown. Again, he was no slouch when it came to cooking and is the owner of Zef BBQ based in Simi Valley, California, where he continues to cook to this day.

Information straight from the website of the company states, “He studied Philosophy and Theology while pursuing a professional career of mixed martial arts in his younger years, but quickly realized his passion lied within the culinary world. He is classically trained, earning both an Associates and Bachelor Degree through The Art Institute- Los Angeles.”
