    hate to have to coin a new phrase but.... the first word that came to mind(both me and my son at the same time) was gaybeque.[​IMG]

    It certainly wasn't what I was hoping for, but it's still BBQ.

    I'm with you AL,

    Atleast there was smoke and meat!
     
  4. Just got around to viewing the DVR of this last night. Gotta agree that this is more "reality TV" than "BBQ documentary". I certainly learned a thing or two -- and watching the kid from Mississippi struggle with his '52 firebox was kinda fun. But the melodrama of sending the "I'm gonna lose my business..." lady home was kind of hokey. I guess the best part of the show was watching Famous Dave waddle ---er, I mean RUN!

    Funny thing is thousands will google  "BBQ" or "Smoked Meat" and will find this place and learn the errors of the pro's. Did I just say that out loud???  [​IMG]

    Now everyone will think we're crazy when we say low and slow.  All i have to do now is figure out how to deprogram it from my DVR!!!!  Not really....after SWMBO saw the salmon and heard what was being slopped on it....... [​IMG]Come on.....let's get real.  Where's the dignity in watching some people running like little children and fighting over cuts of meat to slap together into some strange concoction which may or may not be palatable.  Maybe reality shows need to come back from the edge.  Oh, wait, was this thread suppose to be a satire?  Gotcha.......  Fortunately, the 3 stooges was being recorded on DVR2 so I had something serious to watch.

    It may not be great, but I keep watching it. After all there's fire & smoke, and occasionally meat. I think there's guys on here who could compete with the bunch they have on that show. The thing I don't like is they seem to put an unrealistic time frame for the finished product, then complain that it's not cooked to perfection. I guess that's just TV.

    What did I miss ???
     
  10. Thought the judging on the last episode was really lame! Challenge the guys to smoke for kids and then the judges give the blue ribbon to the one the kids spit out??? Come on!

    I really liked that "double oven" trick the guy came up with for the mac & cheese browning though. You gotta hand it to these guys for dealing creatively with some pretty silly situations. But they should get rewarded fairly by the judges for playing by the rules!

    Funny I thought the second show was far worse then the first show.  Smoked salad, smoked dessert and kids' birthday party.  My wife was trying to take a nap and I kept yelling at the TV set. 
     
  12. What's next. Smoked Ice Cream.

     I was dissappointed too. Was looking forward to seeing some serious smoking and this week got salad and desert as a main course! Then birthday party for an 11 year old. But I will keep watching. Hope to see Brad from MS win as he has a place about 8 miles from my house and my friends say my PP is better than his!. Of course I learned it all here!

    Terrible show.  Not enough time given to properly prepare anything.  Racing for ingredients...  Deleted from the DVR!

    Yeah, and they would want them to do it with out any dairy product. [​IMG]



    Nothing yet, the first one is the better of the two IMHO.
    I hear ya about missing a good one, hopefully there will be one.  Maybe these guys will be able to actully show their skills in one show, maybe two.

    The Texas Steak cookoff was decent.

    I suppose I'll keep recording it, for now.

    HAHA.... I had to go look up PP in abbreviation definitions.  Now I know what you were talking about.  At first, I was a little concerned.

    Not only did you say it out loud . . . you put it out in the vast world of the internet for all the future generations of smokers to see!  Let's google "Famous Dave" and see if this post shows up in the search results.  :)
