TLC’s newest reality show, BBQ Pitmasters, debuts tonight at 10 p.m. ET, and judging from the following video, it’s going to be a tasty treat. The eight one-hour episodes dive into the world of competitive barbecue, where the men (and one woman the men respect) are “part chef, part athlete, and part five-star general,” and the customized “pits” have developed “their own personalities, with names and sometimes even genders.”

Below, meet “The King,” Myron Mixon, the three-time world champion from Unadilla, GA (WARNING: LANGUAGE!). Get to know “The Queen of Q,” Lee Ann Whippen, owner of Wood Chick’s BBQ in Chesapeake, VA, here.
