Is pitmasters on tonight? I was looking last night so I could DVR and couldn't find it. I missed last week and didn't want to miss this week.

Just checked my DVR "to record" list and it's not there. Oh, well, we'll get it next week. I wonder why they're skipping a week?

Perhaps they've been reading all the threads about the show on the BBQ forums!

It was a good episode, enjoyed it.

The block pits evened the playing field, and they skipped the silly odd ball food challenge.

The chicken elimination seemed harsh for the finalists as well, but that was how this show was laid out from the start.

I've cooked whole hog at MBN style contests, it isn't all that easy to get right.................

I'm just glad this season of Pit Masters is over. I would like to see what their market ratings were this year compared to last year. I'm sure they lost many BBQ competitors but I'm sure they gained many "reality cooking" competition show viewers.

I think the ratings are higher because people are more aware of the show. Last years show was much better. Sending people home because they can't cook aligater is not right. The best pittmaster could already sent home because of an irrelevant challenge.
I hope they go back to the real pittmasters.

Does anyone know if they are.[/list]

i agree....i enjoyed the old pitmasters more, but was thankful to see anything on tv about bbq competition. It was very cool to see yazoo's delta Q do very well bein from my home state.....she is also the reining champ where we are goin in 2 weeks....so we are up against some stiff competition for our first big outing

what I dont get is why they dont do a top chef style format. At least to get to know the people. They have the same prize money as top chef, but the format kills any building interest. Would love to see more of a format change to the top chef style and let people get to know the personalities...more of a blend of the 2 versions.
