BBQ Blitz is a documentary roadshow which focuses on both food and the host, Eddie Jackson. Each episode features Jackson's journey to locations which hold special meaning for him. One of the show's major features is that it's just as much about location as it is about food. Jackson makes it clear in every episode just how important culture is to cuisine. This is also part of the reason why the show brings along Jackson's friends and family to events. They're able to offer additional insight into the nature of various locations seen within the episode.

After Jackson gives some background into the location, he proceeds to start looking into the local food. This takes the form of a large scale BBQ competition between local residents. But these aren't just any locals. Jackson carefully selects the best of the best to compete on the show. These form what's known as pitmasters. And these pitmasters are then put into special BBQ based challenges to find out who's the best of the best. Every competition brings something new. For example, one of the competitions has a band show up to bring an extra level of excitement to the proceedings. And each competition also has active audience involvement as they cheer on their favorites in the background.
