BBQ Brawl

FOOD | 9:00 pm

Barbecuing has been a part of American life for generations, but its more recent explosion into the pop culture is likely due in large part to humongous barbecue competitions across the country, which draw contestants and hungry spectators from many miles away. In the new episode "Competition 'Cue," team captains Bobby Flay, Michael Symon and Eddie Jackson are watching carefully to see how well their contenders have mastered the "low and slow" cooking techniques with certain meat cuts that can turn weekend warriors into household names.
