Premiering Tuesday, August 1st at 10:00pm ET/PT - TOURNAMENT PREMIERE! "Grill Masters: Battle 1" Live-fire cooking, life-changing stakes! In this $50,000 five-part tournament, grilling's greatest go big in a spectacular outdoor kitchen. First basket out of the gate challenges four determined competitors with a weird pie and a beautiful cut of pork. A vegan product counters the giant beef ribs in the entrée basket, and the judges are impressed when they see a chef making a creative choice for their dessert basket, but will the innovative idea result in a tasty plate? Competitors: Megan Day (Kansas City, Mo.), Laura Frazee (Dunnellon, Fla.), Andy Husbands (Boston, Mass.), Craig Verhage (Cleveland, Miss.) Host: Ted Allen Judges:Alex Guarnaschelli, Myron Mixon, Marc Murphy

Premiering Tuesday, August 8th at 10:00pm ET/PT "Grill Masters: Battle 2" A second group of Grill Masters is in hot pursuit of the $50,000 grand prize. The chefs discover something stuffed and something smoked in the appetizer basket. Double proteins make the entrée a carnivore's dream, and the two competitors who make it to the dessert basket find ways to make beans the center of their sweet dishes. Competitors: Jeff Bannister (Greenville, S.C.), Ro Daniel (Scottsdale, Ariz.), Richard Fergola (Gardner, Kan.), Joe Johnson (Los Angeles, Calif.) Host: Ted Allen Judges: Scott Conant, Tiffani Faison, Marc Murphy

Premiering Tuesday, August 15th at 10:00pm ET/PT "Grill Masters: Battle 3" Four new Grill Masters are confident they can be the best and advance to the Grand Finale! In the appetizer basket, the party gets started with a frozen daiquiri and plating timing doesn't work out well for one of the chefs. A fatty protein and an odd-colored ice cream are part of the challenge in the second round. In the dessert basket birthday cake is a festive find for the remaining competitors. Competitors:Moe Cason (Des Moines, Iowa), Stephen Coe (Plymouth, Mass.), Lee Ann Whippen (Chicago, Ill.), Flip Wise (Aspen, Colo.)

Premiering Tuesday, August 22nd at 10:00pm ET/PT "Grill Masters: Battle 4" Just one spot left for the Grand Finale! A feisty group of chefs is trash talking from the start, but will the vibe change after somebody's lamb appetizer lands on the chopping block? A "steak" made out of a vegetable is one of the surprises the chefs face in the entrée basket. The last two competitors are supremely confident, but their knowledge of dragon fruit and mesquite powder could play a role in who grills the best dessert. Competitors: Joanna Dunn (Grand Rapids, Mich.), Nikki Martin (West Hollywood, Calif.), Marco Niccoli (Salt Lake City, Utah), Jim Stancil (Oxford, Ga.) Host: Ted Allen Judges: Maneet Chauhan, Aaron Franklin, Chris Santos

Premiering Tuesday, August 29th at 10:00pm ET/PT - TOURNAMENT FINALE! "Grill Masters: Finale Battle" Which of the four incredible Grill Masters champions will top all and score $50,000 and a Napa Valley vacation? Tiny, celebratory beers help kick off the first round of live-fire cooking, as well as a beautiful rack of boar. As the intensity heats up, s'mores and a delicate vegetable accompany a lean meat on the competitors' entrée plates. A giant sweet surprise in the dessert basket ensures that the final plates will be colorful and unusual. But whose will taste like 50,000 bucks? Host: Ted Allen Judges: Amanda Freitag, Marc Murphy, Chris Santos
