Meat Week 2013

BBQ-Pitmasters“What better way to celebrate summer than firing up the grills and enjoying true American cuisine,” said Marc Etkind, SVP of Content Strategy for Destination America. “Our inaugural MEAT WEEK is a nod to our country’s intrepid backyard warriors who fan the flames in their personal pits to share the upcoming season of meat – from burgers to hotdogs to traditional barbecue — with friends and family.” With that opening statement Destination America is announcing that they will be hosting their very first “Meat Week” starting Memorial Day (May 27th) at 9pm E/P. The first episode to be aired during “Meat Week” will be all new. It will be a showdown between a top pitmaster and legendary Myron Mixon. Following the first episode of “Meat Week”, there will be a couple new episodes of United States of Bacon aired during the week, capped off with the season premier of BBQ Pittmasters on June 2nd. Oh, and there will be a special episode called “Epic BBQ Pits”, which sounds awesome and inspiring, wedged into “Meat Week”.
