With summer in full swing and Americans across the USA firing up their grills, four professional BBQ teams will slather, slice and smoke their finest recipes traveling around the country, hitting the circuit in some of the most difficult conditions yet, attempting to become the Pit Wars Grand Champion of Season 2. Robbie Royal, a former Pitmasters champion faces off against his former mentor Myron Mixon the reigning champ of "Pit Wars," ready to prove the student has become the master. Michael Character returns from last year with new grilling techniques and feels ready to prove his fare should not be underestimated! Finally, Ernest Servantes, hits the circuit with his Texan taste, planning to utilize an unexpected, secret technique to outshine his Georgia competitors.
This season of "BBQ Pit Wars" will broil down to one major factor: location. Each venue has different challenges and if the grill masters can overcome these potential setbacks, it will separate the good from the truly great. The competitions this year are tougher and bigger than ever before, with over 50 teams contending for the top spot and vying to take down the King of Q, Myron Mixon.
The experts have been mastering their delectable recipes for years, but now it's time for the real test of who will be rewarded for their finger lickin' fare and who will be left packing up their trailers and heading home empty-handed. These backyard warriors are cooking for not only money but pride, and they are devoted to bring the greatest American BBQ to the circuit this year on "BBQ Pit Wars."
