A Brisket, A Basket
There's no escaping the challenge in round one as four chefs battle to transform chicken wieners and dried fruit into a winning combination. Brisket proves a tough meat to handle in the entrée round as the chefs fight to move on. Dessert is a prickly pickle as both chefs strive to create a delightful dish from cactus and crescent rolls.
