Jess,

i would love to hear some of the background on decisions made about the content of the show, guests in the future and when we will be presenting on some "REAL" bbq's.
with your background and having some say in this im sure that when it comes to offset bbq's the subject will not be taken lightly.

obviously reading through this thread we can see that fanatics like ourselves arent the core audience however we do/are watching the show closely (hence the discussion on preenters/content)

this may be our chance to get the scoop on whats in store

Sure - well, I was only involved for the initial three episodes. As I understand it, the parties involved will be making a call based on the reception to go ahead.

I should be clear that I was there to offer quasi-expert advice, but by no means did I have a final say, that rests with the Executive Producers.

I purposefully steered them away from offset because the show was after all commissioned by Heat Beads, and charcoal isn't exactly a primary ingredient in traditional offset smoking. I also feared that the nuances and pedantic details that are so important to all of us might have been overlooked in the interest of producing a more accessible and good looking show, so I went with the angle of highlight and celebrating world BBQ (both charcoal and wood fuelled) in all its forms. And, I think it was the right decision. I don't think we needed another show on TV trivialising "American BBQ" and its methods.

It was a great experience working on the show, and I think we covered an interesting range of recipes. Ultimately, bearing in mind that this show needs to appeal to an extremely broad audience, I think it's an incredibly positive step that someone is highlighting "keeping BBQ real" as not using gas/propane. Baby steps, y'all.

Nicely said!
You definitely hit the nail on the head, while we enjoy the nuances of the offset the general public need to be eased into it.
Pellet cookers or weber smokey mountains may be a good "entry level" into low and slow without all the complexities of an offset. Obviously leaning towards a water cooker due to heat beads being a sponsor.
Will you be involved in the future?

I don't believe so. I think they are standing on their own feet now, and I'm not entirely sure more episodes have been commissioned.
