The American Barbecue Showdown Cast and Format
The American Barbecue Showdown is set up so that people from all over the country compete in a barbecue cook-off to see who will be named the American Barbecue Champion.
It starts with eight contestants, each of whom has a different amount of experience with barbecuing. They have to face challenges that require them to cook in different styles, and sometimes there are extra challenges that come out of the blue.
The show is not just about cooking, but also about keeping the barbecue at the right temperature and smoking food. Each part of cooking has to be done in a certain amount of time, which is less than the usual amount of time needed to prepare and cook the meal.
Rutledge Wood and Lyric Lewis are the hosts of the show, and Kevin Bludso and Melissa Cookston are the judges. The producers haven’t said anything about changes for the new season, so we can expect to see the same hosts and judges.
The American Barbecue Showdown Season 2 Release Date
The American Barbecue Showdown’s first season came out in September 2020, and in August 2021, it was picked up for a second season. Taking all of this into account, the second season should come out by the end of 2022.
It’s possible that the new season will have eight episodes, just like the first season. The creators haven’t said anything else about the next season yet.
