Host David Guas travels to Annapolis, Maryland, home of the state capital, the US Naval Academy, and one of the oldest ports in America. In Maryland, they're big on sailing, seafood and American pride. Four killer grillers - Julie, Heath, Mike and Eric battle it out to take home the $10,000 prize at Annapolis Harbor Dock - a historic spot for concerts, festivals and art. The competitors must use unique local ingredients - like beaten biscuits, blue crabs, and giant tomahawk steaks to win over the judges in each round. Guas is joined by guest judges Diva Q, a world BBQ champion, and George Hensler, a Maryland pitmaster. It's a high-heat, high-intensity, battle for the cash and hometown pride.
