*A&E has teamed with Anthony Anderson and Cedric The Entertainer to celebrate the art of barbeque with the new unscripted series “Kings of BBQ.”

Per the news release, the series follows the pair as they embark on a cross-country barbeque adventure to learn about the best techniques, flavors, and traditions while also working to launch their own brand, AC Barbeque.

“In each one-hour episode, “Kings of BBQ” will follow Cedric and Anthony as they meet with barbeque chefs, pitmasters and everyday experts who share their knowledge and secrets of the trade, highlighting Black Excellence in the industry along the way. With the launch of AC Barbeque in stores nation-wide, Cedric and Anthony aim to take grilling to the next level with their signature flair and laugh-out-loud antics,” the news release continues.

“The duo will do it all to master barbeque in all its glory and create a business that honors its legacy and flavors. The friends will travel to the Memphis in May BBQ festival, fire up the grill to feed the LA Rams, stop by backyard cookouts, and return to their hometowns for inspiration from friends and family,” the release states.

As we reported previously, in a statement, Cedric said, “Anthony and I are very excited to take our audience into the savory, smokehouse-filled, finger-licking world of barbeque all across the United States,” Cedric. Added Anderson: “The launch of AC Barbeque has been a lifelong dream for Cedric and I, and we cannot wait to learn more about the craft and share our journey.”
