PITMASTERS Yes or No?

Could change my mind, but after the first show NO

Re: PITMASTERS Yes or No?

I'll give two pros and cons on this:

Pros:
  • Myron and Warren definitely brought some personality to the show.[/*:mf9jatam]
  • Definitely looked like some very good food.[/*:mf9jatam]

Cons:
  • Felt too much like Food Network's "Chopped" -- yet another food competition show.[/*:mf9jatam]
  • Would like to have seen more interaction between teams... and maybe more teams in the episode.[/*:mf9jatam]

Re: PITMASTERS Yes or No?

I say , give it time.. there were things I liked about the show, and some things just didn
t sit with me, but not so much so that I turned the TV off.. I think, in the end I will like it..

Here's what the producer had to say, Via Clint's blog, at Smoke in da Eye

Re: PITMASTERS Yes or No?

Entertainment - Yes

a good BBQ show - NO

I will continue to watch because I enjoy cooking all sorts of things and it will be interesting to see how teams handle what is thrown at them. Also I am looking forward to seeing some people I know personally. Even though, I know that much of it is staged for TV

that's just my $0.02

Re: PITMASTERS Yes or No?

Ugh, it was hard to watch. By the time they were halfway with the catfish, I was just listening to the show. This show, for me, falls under the "If you can't say something nice... don't say nothing at all".

Re: PITMASTERS Yes or No?

I like the old format WAY better. Like was said earlier, feels like Chopped or Challenge on FN

Re: PITMASTERS Yes or No?

from that article...

Initial feedback on the show's Facebook page and on barbecue message boards has been almost unanimously violently negative as the barbecue purists and competition teams complain about forcing the cooks to make catfish and coleslaw. KCBS judgings compete with four meats, pork shoulder, pork ribs, beef brisket, and chicken, usually thighs. Sadly, many competitors think that is all there is to barbecue.

The critics sound a lot like footballs fans who complain about the fact that kickers are allowed to score points. Well this barbecue lover thinks that it is prefectly fair to make the contestants prove they can cook more than four meats before they can take home the $100,000 first prize check. In fact, coleslaw, cornbread, beans, potato salad, garlic bread, mint juleps, and peach cobbler ought to be required to even be called a serious barbecue cook. The marketing peole at TLC should not call these people "chefs", a professional title reserved for culinary artisans with a full repertoire.
