The latest installment introduces fresh meat when favorite contestant, Moe Cason joins Myron Mixon and Tuffy Stone at the judge's table. Once again, BBQ PITMASTERS transports viewers into the competitive barbecue subculture, proving that barbecue is much more than just delicious food; it's a full-blown competitive sport. The new season showcases a fierce competition among the best in regional BBQ - from Georgia, Texas, North Carolina, Memphis and of course, Kansas City - with teams competing for a spot in a final cook-off in which the winner boasts the ultimate barbecue bragging rights, a $50,000 cash prize from Kingsford Charcoal, and entry into the prestigious Kingsford Invitational.

In the premiere episode, three of Georgia's greatest grillers go head-to-head to see who can cook the Peach State's best 'cue. The teams featured include Robby Royal from "Rescue Smokers" returning for a chance at redemption after his loss in last season's semi-finals; Eric Thomas from "The Rolling Grill" is another returning competitor who's trying to prove that his food is worthy of naming him BBQ PITMASTERS' Georgia Champion. And newcomer John Ley from "Heavenly Hawgs" hopes his Georgia style cooking is destined to win it all. Find out who will win the first battle of the season to move on to the semi-finals for a shot at the grand prize and coveted title of BBQ Pitmasters Grand Champion.
