But Destination America has renewed BBQ Pitmasters a while back, in June, right before season three ended. This is the third season of the popular barbecue competition series, whose first two seasons aired on sister network TLC, and its first season airing as an original program on Destination America. The series pits America’s best hard-core barbecue grillers against each other each week, and their cured creations are blind-judged by three pitmaster professionals, including series veteran Myron Mixon. Each week’s winner earns a place in the winner-take-all-finale, where the coveted prize includes $50,000, a spot in the first annual Kingsford Invitational, and the ultimate title of BBQ PITMASTERS Grand Champion is on the line.
“When you discover a recipe as successful as BBQ PITMASTERS, you keep on cooking for another season!” said Marc Etkind, SVP of content strategy for Destination America. “We’re excited to get on the board so early in the game as we establish ourselves as the home for Americana content, and happy to give fans more access into the niche world of the burgeoning barbecue circuit.”
