DESCRIPTION: (from Destination America's press release, April 2014) Memorial Day is a uniquely American phenomenon involving friends, family, grilling, and good times. Destination American combines those same ingredients for a programming event you can sink your teeth into - MEAT WEEK. Beginning on Memorial Day, Monday, May 26, the week kicks off with a marathon of the smokin' hot series, BBQ PITMASTERS followed by a one-hour sneak peek of the new series BBQ PIT WARS, featuring top pitmasters in the country going head-to-head on the national BBQ circuit to prove who is a bona-fide BBQ black belt. The line-up of sizzling new shows also includes all-new special HOLY SMOKERS, which highlights church-based BBQ competition, and the one-hour special FOOD WARS: BBQ. The week is topped off with another helping of new episodes of BBQ PITMASTERS and BBQ PIT WARS on Saturday May 31 at 9/8c and 10/9c respectively.
