We're traveling across America to discover the best and boldest flavors competitors can fire up on their grills in this ultimate, outdoor cooking challenge. From a whole hog, a Virginia countryside classic, to Maryland's Eastern Shore, where blue crabs are legendary, host David Guas visits a different city and serves up amazing local ingredients to test the epic backyard skills of America's hardcore grillers. Competitors come from all walks of life - from a patent attorney, to a professional chef, to an electrician, to a suburban mom. Despite their differences, all contestants have a passion for high heat, big meat, and cooking over an open flame. Each episode starts with four competitors, but in the end, only one walks away with the $10,000 cash prize and the bragging rights of being the killer griller.
