The American Barbecue Showdown Season 2 has finally arrived on Netflix after being announced over two years ago. However, it's titled Barbeque Showdown this season. The culinary competition series made its debut in September 2020 and follows the nation's best backyard smokers and competitive barbecuers as they compete for the title and cash prize of $50,000.
Each episode features a challenge that puts the competitors' grilling prowess to the test in ways they couldn't possibly conceive. They will have to demonstrate that they have the expertise to smoke another day using unusual meats and traditional methods.
While some of the competitors have years of experience and have been grilling longer than some of their opponents have lived, others are new to barbecue but have a keen sense of taste, a solid grasp of what goes well together, and a can-do attitude that allows them to take risks while still producing a high-quality meal.
Michelle Lundstrom, one of the 8 contestants of the show, has caught the attention of many viewers because of her BBQ skill as well as her personality. As a result, many people are interested to know more about her. Well, here is everything you need to know about Michelle.
