Michelle Lundstrom On Barbecue Showdown Season 2
The wait is over foodies. The American Barbecue Showdown has returned for its second installment on Netflix and the show follows the country’s “best backyard smokers and competitive barbecuers as they compete for the title of American Barbecue Champion.”
Like the inaugural season — which premiere back in September 2020 — the second season will follow contestants as they take on a challenge that tests their barbecue skills in ways “they couldn’t possibly imagine. From unique meats to old school techniques, they will have to prove they have the skills to smoke another day.”
Michelle Lundstrom is one of the contestants in the Barbecue Showdown. “It was too chilly most nights during deliberation and elimination to sweat. But I still did,” she recalled the filming process. Also, the chef shared that she’s happy to have stood in front of the “most genuinely incredible judges and hilarious and beautiful host.”
Promoting the show, she took to her IG to write, “Barbecue Showdown!! FINALLY, I CAN SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOP!! This experience was one that changed me forever. I cannot wait for you to see it unfold! The most amazing contestants, judges, and host evaaaaaa!! MAY 26th @netflix 🔥🔥🔥🔥LET’S GO!”
Her co-competitors were Thyron Mathews (an award-winning pitmaster who founded T&T BBQ, a family-owned sauce and dry rubs business that aims to bring the “southern explosive taste to northeast Iowa”), Cindy Hayter, Delilah Winder (owner of Bluezette and author of Delilah’s Everyday Soul), Joey Victorian (the owner of Victorian’s Barbecue), Eduardo Gonzalez, and Logan Sandoval (a chef and the owner of ZEF BBQ, a family-run pop-up that aims to “bridge the gap between old school technique and new school presentation, flavor, and execution.”)
