EXPERT GRILLING SEASON TIPS LIVE FROM THE 39TH ANNUAL MEMPHIS IN MAY CHAMPIONSHIP BBQ COOKING CONTEST WITH AWARD-WINNING PITMASTERS TUFFY STONE & MOE CASON
What better place to kick off the 2016 grilling season than America’s most prestigious BBQ competition? Former Destination America’s BBQ Pitmasters judges Tuffy Stone and Moe Cason will show home cooks how to fire up their BBQ best with easy tips and tricks.
They’ll also encourage viewers to put their grill skills to the test in the first ever “Smithfield Hog Wild Throwdown.” Between now and Labor Day, participants can submit their favorite fresh pork grilling recipes as a Pitmaster Pro or a Backyard BBQer for a chance to heat things up in front of Tuffy and Moe this fall at the American Royal in Kansas City, Missouri and drive home in the ultimate pig-rig – a Ford F-150!
