More details on BARBECUE BARBECUE season 3
The show did not give many details about its upcoming episodes. However, what has been identified is that the first episode will be quite a challenge for barbecue chefs. Competitors will start with a signature skewer task in which they will have to prepare roast meat and cut the meat on their own.
As the episodes progress, the contestants will also have to deal with a big dinner party hosted by the three mentors. The show’s first challenge will be peppered with plenty of twists thrown by Burrell, Flay, and Tila. Competitors will follow who will take care of a suckling pig for the great barbecue occasions which they must prepare within six hours. Additionally, each episode of the barbecue show will be an hour and a half long.
The official description for the first episode of Season 3 reads as follows:
Nine barbecue masters are ready to do battle, and their first challenge is to show up and their barbecue in hopes of being chosen by their favorite team captain.
