Destination America's FATHER'S DAY ALL-DAY BUFFET daytime special stunt will kick-off Sunday, Jun 21 at 10am on Destination America!

The daytime stack will include the following delicious duels:


Memphis, Tennessee is an American barbeque capital and here at the Annual Pigs in Flight BBQ Competition three Pitmasters will face off to see who can cook the best Baby Back Ribs and Pork Butt. Melissa Cookston of Memphis Barbeque Co. is the winningest woman in all of barbeque with a dozen first place finishes for pork under her belt. But Big Moe Cason of Ponderosa BBQ in Iowa may give Melissa a run for her money, having competed in over 130 competitive barbecue contests. Or will Donny Bray of Warren County Pork Choppers surprise them all by smoking the competition with his old-school pit? Whoever can master these pork cuts will move onto the finale for a chance to win $50,000 and the title of BBQ Pitmasters Grand Champion.


Johnny Trigg of Smokin' Triggers is a legend in barbeque with half a million dollars in winnings, but his old school barbeque ways will be challenged by modern barbeque techniques of younger Pitmasters like Chris Hart of Wicked Good Barbeque and Charles Wilson of C-Dubs Corruption BBQ Crew? The Pitmasters are faced with two challenging meats, pork belly and whole turkey.


Dothan, Alabama knows their BBQ so heavy hitter LeeAnne Whippen, NYC 5 Star Chef Shane McBride and one of North Carolina's favorite, Corey Brinson of Fatback's BBQ & Rib Shack have come to slaughter the competition. Today's challenge Beef Ribs and Fresh Ham! Will Fatback's Rib Shack know how to handle the beef


Who says Canadians can't BBQ? We've got Diva Q, a Canuck Cook team with the challenge of Whole Chicken and Rack of Pork who says Canadians do it best! Cooking against the Diva is Doctor Randy Hill of Southern Krunk Burn One Boys BBQ and Rob Marion of 2 Worthless Nuts. These three teams will light up their pits and try to out smoke one another in a battle of poultry and pig in Salisbury, Maryland.


Five teams, $50,000 and only one BBQ Pitmaster. The winners from all the previous competitions are in one of America's biggest BBQ Capitals, Lexington North Carolina, facing off in the biggest, baddest, heaviest hitting BBQ Competition this country has ever seen! It's a battle of North Carolina vs. South Carolina. The Godfather of BBQ Johnny Trigg against the reigning Queen Melissa Cookston.
