The judges from the second season consisted of Myron Mixon, Warren Sapp and Art Smith. The host was Kevin Roberts.

If you are someone who has always wanted to learn some tips on how to BBQ the right way or just simply wanted to know what types of meat you could place on the bbq, this show is right up your alley. Here on the show they will show you all the exotic meats that you might not have otherwise thought of trying. Once you sit down to try the bbq without actually preparing it yourself, you might be surprised to learn that something that you thought was nasty, could be quite good. The show will show you how one team thought of a food and went on to prepare it and cook it and then hand it over to the judges. Once the food is placed in front of the judges, the judges will discuss amongst themselves what they think of the food and which food was best prepared as well as to what food tasted the best. Once they decide who did what the best, the winner will be chosen. Once the winner has been declared, the winner will then be asked to come back on the show for the season finale where the winners from each episode will be brought back to compete for the grand prize.

Overall a good show for someone who loves to BBQ or who loves to watch people BBQ to watch. Each season will bring more and more meats and proteins to the table.
