It's a battle of Southern gentlemen, as famed chicken master Art Smith takes on the pork-minded Kevin Gillespie.
It's a battle of the good ol' boys, as true Southern Gentlemen duel it out in the kitchen. In a Duels first this season, a Top Chef Master takes on a Top Chef Runner-Up, and these bearded brethren are out for blood. First, Kevin puts Art through hog hell, challenging him to butcher and then prepare a dish with porcine. Then, Art throws down the gauntlet to Kevin to a critter fry. When the cast of Grey's Anatomy sits down for dinner, they get just what the doctor ordered. Kevin and Art prove either way that the South will rise again.
NOTE: James Pickens, Camilla Luddington, Kevin McKidd, Sarah Drew, and Jerrika Hinton appear in this episode as guest judges.
