Michael Symon returns to take a road trip to taste the best of the American classics - burgers and BBQ - in season two of Burgers, Brew & 'Que, premiering Friday, January 15th at 10:30pm ET/PT on Food Network. Whether it is a mouth-watering cheeseburger or slow-smoked, fall-off-the-bone ribs, Michael is going to eat and meet his way through some of the best All-American spots to get your grub on. And what better way to wash it all down than with some of the local brews, sure to make any meal perfect.
On the upcoming premiere episode, Smoked and Stacked, Duff Goldman makes a guest appearance at Michael Symon's favorite Baton Rouge, La. smokehouse that boasts a pork belly hoagie so outrageous it has to be shared. Next up in St. Louis, a big fat Greek burger ignites Michael's cultural soul, and in Austin, he indulges in pit-roasted meats and spicy salsa atop the freshest tortillas this side of the border.

In Austin, Texas, Michael visits one of the city's oldest buildings, where a restaurant's Barbecue Benedict have people coming back for more. No trip to Austin is complete without getting your taco on, but a local spot also serves some of the best local brews in the city. During the season Michael also heads to New Orleans to try a kim chi burger, blue crab beignets, and a restaurant in the heart of the French Quarter that has a selection of some of the best craft brews in "The Big Easy."
And who says you can't find good BBQ on the east coast, as Michael visits Brooklyn for a new spin on some classic burgers; while a local Pitmaster in Redhook, Brooklyn, shows Michael his take on sticky ribs and bành mí. Meanwhile, a stop at a local brewery in Hoboken, New Jersey, has patrons salivating over Eastern European cuisine at this authentic beer garden. Through 13 episodes Michael takes a culinary trek across the country with special guests, including John Besh, Scott Conant, Jay Ducote, Haylie Duff, Duff Goldman, Ron Ben-Israel, Food Network Star winner Eddie Jackson, and former NFL Hall of Fame player Earl Campbell, along stops in Cincinnati, Kanas City, St. Louis and more, to truly experience the unique and best Burgers, Brew & 'Que.
