ASHBURN, GA (WALB) -

A Barbeque team from South Georgia will once again be featured on the show Barbeque Pitmasters. Season five will feature a team from Sycamore. Members say they're excited to part of the show where they get to show off their skills.    

The Barbeque Team from Turner County is getting ready for their second round on the hit TV show BBQ Pitmasters.  

"I was ecstatic about being asked to come back again. Me and Robby had talked about it. We wasn't going to do it again this year, but they asked us so we sent in the video and here we are," said Raymond Poore.    

The Rescue Smokers were on the last season of BBQ Pitmasters, making it all the way to the finale. They were asked to audition Again for season five.  

"We did lose by 16th of a point last year and that's what's got us fired up about this season," he said.    

18 teams were selected to compete. Close to 700 teams around the country applied.     Raymond Poore and Robby Royal started the Rescue Smokers in 2007.

Since then, they've won numerous awards. "The last 12 months, we've been living the barbeque dream, we fulfilled our bucket list. We been on BBQ Pitmasters. We won the Big Pig Jig in Vienna, Georgia," said Royal.  

They don't just cook for competitions. Poore owns Rescue's Smokehouse Grill.  "When you come in it's more than barbeque. You can get steaks, fries, salad," he says.    

This season they are competing against some strong barbeque teams in Georgia. The team says they can't tell us is if they are winners, but they promise the show will be interesting.    

"Can't tell you the meats, just have watch to see how two Georgia boys from Sycamore, Georgia handle it on the big screen," he said.    

The Rescue Smokers will have a viewing party for the season premiere at Rescue's Smokehouse Grill Saturday at 8 p.m. The show starts at 9 p.m. on Destination America.
