Destination America Has Recipe For Ratings Success -- Fires Up The Grill For Another Season Of "BBQ PITMASTERS"

-- Season Three Finale Airs this Sunday, July 1 from 9-10 PM (E/P) on Destination America --

SILVER SPRING, Md., June 27, 2012 -- The secret's in the sauce! On the heels of unprecedented ratings success for BBQ PITMASTERS, Destination America greenlights another season of barbecue bliss. Since the network's debut on Memorial Day weekend, on what was formerly Planet Green, BBQ PITMASTERS has helped drive record-setting nights in June. BBQ PITMASTERS is Destination America's #1 original series ever among all key demos: P/W/M25-54, P/M18-49, HH, and P2+ delivery. Additionally, the 9-10 PM timeslot has fueled the success of the network, launching Destination America to rank 21st on Sunday nights among all ad-supported cable for M25-54 delivery, beating networks such as TRAV, ADSM, NGC, G4, H2, VH1, CMT, BBCA, BIO, NBC Sports, NGWD, and others.

This is the third season of the popular barbecue competition series, whose first two seasons aired on sister network TLC, and its first season airing as an original program on Destination America. The series pits America's best hard-core barbecue grillers against each other each week, and their cured creations are blind-judged by three pitmaster professionals, including series veteran Myron Mixon. Each week's winner earns a place in the winner-take-all-finale which will air this Sunday, July, 1, where the coveted prize includes $50,000, a spot in the first annual Kingsford Invitational, and the ultimate title of BBQ PITMASTERS Grand Champion is on the line. The cook-off finale of BBQ PITMASTERS airs on Sunday, July 1 from 9-10 PM (E/P), following an all-day marathon beginning at 11 AM on Destination America.

"When you discover a recipe as successful as BBQ PITMASTERS, you keep on cooking for another season!" said Marc Etkind, SVP of content strategy for Destination America. "We're excited to get on the board so early in the game as we establish ourselves as the home for Americana content, and happy to give fans more access into the niche world of the burgeoning barbecue circuit."
