The 3rd episode of Season 8 of Food Network's The Great Food Truck Race, aptly titled, Battle for the South: Sweet Home Alabama was filmed in Tuscaloosa. 

Airtime is set at 8 pm on Sunday, September 3rd with an encore performance on Monday, September 4th at 11 pm, both airing on Food Network.

A description on Food Network's website states,

The remaining five trucks arrive in Tuscaloosa, Ala. to find Tyler Florence and pastry chef Jan Moon waiting for them with a challenge: to crack the most pecans in just 15 minutes. The teams must then use their pecans in a dessert dish to sell on their trucks, with the winner receiving valuable mentoring time with Jan and the team that makes the most profits winning $200. On the second day in Tuscaloosa, Tyler challenges the cooks to a happy hour: for one hour, the pecan dishes will be sold for $1 only, and the team with the overall lowest sales will be out of the competition.

Tune in to see who from our area made it on film and what places the teams visited during their stay in our champion city.
