In case I didn't mention it, it's really hot out while they're cooking, even though it's at night. Lindsay lets Paul take the lead on their team, because she respects his abilities. Ty is dubious about Paul's team making Asian barbeque in Texas. And then Paul's team finds out that their meat has fallen onto the bottom of the smoker. Luckily, they wrapped it in foil so it didn't get contaminated, but they've lost hours of cooktime.
Time passes. Chris Moto is cooking beer can chicken. That's not really barbeque, is it? Except that you do it on a grill? Chris Moto also acts like it's this crazy grilling technique, when every home cook made it like three summers ago.
The sun rises and no one has slept. Chris Moto is talking to his chickens. There's a ton of smoke everywhere, so everyone's eyes are tearing up. Plus, now that the sun is up, it gets a lot hotter, and they're all standing over fires. Colicchio shows up to see what's doing. Team White (Beverly and the Chrises) talk to him first. Tom seems unimpressed with their ideas, but he doesn't say anything. Then he goes over to Team Red (Sarah, Ed and Ty), who brag that they're each doing barbeque from their hometowns, Texas, Kansas City and Kentucky. Tom seems excited about that. And then Team Blue is doing the Asian-style, and Paul takes responsibility for that concept. Grayson is so exhausted that she just starts blurting things out, and she tells Tom that their food is going to be "like sex in the mouth." Tom's like, "Ew." Before he leaves, Tom tells them that the winning team will split $15,000.
The food is finishing up. Chris Hollywood worries that his ribs are too salty, and decides to cut off the ends and put more sauce on them to make them less salty. Lindsay is worried that her Brussels sprouts won't get done, because the fire is dying out.
Sarah starts getting light headed and has trouble breathing. She goes to see the medic, who gives her an oxygen mask and starts asking her questions. Whatever he sees worries him, and he calls an ambulance and they take her out on a stretcher. Both Lindsay and Ty come over and assure her that she'll be fine, and not to worry about the food, although Ty interviews that she should be worried, because being absent can always increase the risk that you'll go home.
