In the South, barbecue holds a whole different meaning.

From multi-generational cooks to barbecue enthusiasts, each pitmaster brings a unique story to the world of barbecue.
In an all new discovery+ series, legendary Moonshiner, Stephen Ray Tickle and “Hogfather” Tank Jackson, venture into the deep South to reveal the best barbecue pitmasters in the country. From the Carolina backroads to the Appalachian mountains, MOONSHINERS: SMOKE RING spotlights the underground world of barbeque and pitmasters who will use their special skill-sets to compete for the title of Smoke Ring champion.
Here’s a breakdown of the new competition series:
- Pitmasters from all over the South will compete in high stakes battles to determine who can produce the best tasting smoked meat.
- Each episode will feature new pitmasters and new recipe challenges.
- Every week, Tickle will be joined by guest judges who are legends in the barbecue world, including Sam Jones, Ed and Ryan Mitchell, Chris Lilly, Emily Hahn, and Carey Bringle aka Peg Leg Porker, who will help him decide the winner of each challenge.
