Question BBQ Pitmaster auditions...sorta...

Found this over on the PNWBA forum...

Hey there, Pacific NW BBQ Crew!!

BBQ Pitmasters and Original Media are now casting Season 4 and we are looking nationwide for the best BBQ pitmasters (and their helpers) to compete. I am reaching out to you to see if there was a way we could put the word out to your members in a hurry BUT if you have someone in mind immediately, by all means, have them get in touch with us right away!

We are casting the “Best of the Best” BBQ Pitmasters across the country. We want people with years of BBQing experience and major wins/awards/accolades in the BBQ Universe. Each Pitmaster must have their own pit set-up with which to compete.

Dates and specifics are being worked out at the moment and details will be provided as they materialize, however we are casting immediately, so the sooner we can get in touch with some Pitmasters, the better.

I’ve attached the instructions for applying, but essentially, I just need an email with pictures and a brief “hello” to get the ball rolling! [Bryan: Instructions are copied below]

If you can help or have people to recommend, I’d love to speak, so don’t hesitate to call, especially if you have questions!

Thanks again, and I look forward to hearing from you!!
Cheers!
Brian Small

Original Media/Destination America
212 - 683 - 3086 x211

Destination America’s hit show is back for another Season!

We’re looking for the best and brightest Pitmasters who’ve got the drive
to compete and personalities that trump the competition! Immediately
casting BBQ Teams of Two who cook, eat and breathe BBQ and are
ready to showcase their abilities and prove they’re the BEST!

Casting closes very soon, but it’s easy to apply and we’re here to help:
FIRST: Email a picture of you and your partner to BBQPitmasters@OriginalMedia.com and
briefly introduce yourself. Please make sure to include your TEAM NAME/CITY in the subject line of your email.

NEXT: Fill out the BBQ Pitmasters Application Survey here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PY2BXST

FINALLY: Make a 3-5 minute video for us to check out. Please introduce yourself and your
partner, show us some of your food and A LOT OF YOUR PERSONALITY. Don’t worry –
we’re not expecting videos of Hollywood production quality, but comedy helps! More than
anything – the cooks’ personalities and a demonstration of your unbeatable skills are what matter. Please use the video to tell us why you should be picked, what skills you have, and what sets you apart from the rest of the pitmasters out there!

Please email video links to BBQPitmasters@originalmedia.com or send any video/materials

It appears to be legit...got a call from the PNWBA webmaster to confirm the source...still not sure what's up with the malware ad though. Anyway...we're not interested in pursuing it...just an FYI.
Cheers!

Great Lakes BBQ Association did too. Isn't season 4 on TV right now? I am suspicious after reading it.

When John Markus was on Greg Rempe's show, he said they were calling the current season "season 3a" or something like that. It sounded like he wasn't even sure why.

My partner has a bigger personality than me so we submitted a package. Not expecting much response from it.
