"Chopped: Grill Masters" on Food Network is a special five-part themed franchise extension of "Chopped" that travels West to the Arizona desert. Over five weeks based outside at the nostalgic Old Tucson Studios, sixteen grilling professionals from around the country face off in this captivating Wild West showdown. The stage is set for the ultimate culinary feud with "Chopped" favorites Amanda Freitag, Marc Murphy and Aarón Sánchez at the judging table, and astonishing mystery ingredients and tremendously talented competitors. One chef from each preceding duel makes it to the final fiery face-off, and when the dust clears, the greatest grilling pro of all walks away with a $50,000 grand prize.

With a $50,000 grand prize on the line, the stage is set for the ultimate grilling showdown, as the chefs head out of the kitchen to compete outdoors over three rounds, consisting of an appetizer, entrée and dessert, with recurring "Chopped" judges Scott Conant, Alex Guarnaschelli, Chris Santos, and special guest judges Amy Mills and Tim Love deciding the fates for each grilling pro. The winner from each episode will face-off in the fiery finale.

"Chopped: Grill Masters Napa"

This special five-part themed tournament heads outdoors to beautiful Beringer Vineyards, located in Napa Valley, California, as sixteen grilling professionals from around the country facing off for a chance at a $50,000 grand prize. Each episode includes four chefs competing over three rounds, with recurring "Chopped" and special guest judges deciding the fates for each pro. The winner from each heat wins $10,000 and a spot in the grand finale, to see who will walk away with $50,000 more.

With access to an outdoor kitchen of ingredients and armed with charcoal and propane grills, as well as a smoker at each cooking station, the sixteen competitors must incorporate mandatory ingredients from the mystery baskets through three rounds — appetizer, entrée and dessert — showcasing their grilling skills to create unique and savory dishes. Over five episodes these grill pros must not only battle each other, but also take on the elements as they face the intensity of the heat from the grills and weather, along with some surprise appearances from bees that make cooking outside that much more challenging.
