If you haven't seen the show, Destination America's BBQ Pitmasters is a reality show designed to challenge flame wizards in a barbecue showdown. Each week, teams burn their proteins' ends, and occasionally face a "Pit Fire Challenge," where the more exotic fare is thrown down (see: alligator) for a cash prize.
Which brings us to the point: Over Labor Day Weekend, Dallas' very own Lockhart Smokehouse will be competing at the Bedford BBQ and Blues Festival for an upcoming episode on the new season (BBQ Pitmasters season kicks off 9 p.m. November 17 on Destination America). The judges will be the same as last season, and that means Aaron Franklin and barbecue champion Tuffy Stone will be inspecting Lockhart's meat.
