In another episode, Michael travels to the Lone Star state for Cedar Fest, where the teams compete in ribs, chicken and pork but the real star is the brisket.

A Missouri team, Gettin' Basted, is ready to beat the local boys at their own game, while a pair of father-son teams, Fat Boys BBQ and Smokin' Coles, are keeping the competition in the family.

And in Memphis, Tennessee, Michael visits the Memphis in May International Festival to see some of the biggest names in BBQ go head-to-head in the whole hog category at the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest.
