Will Joe's Real BBQ Appear on Regis and Kelly?

Although the French Open preempted this morning's episode of Live! with Regis and Kelly on the local TV affiliate, Joe Johnston's Gilbert restaurant, Joe's Real BBQ, still got national airtime for the TV show's Ultimate Hometown Grill-Off.

The good news? Joe's made it to the next round in the Best Brisket category, and is one of only five nominees from across the country to be featured in an online vote, which takes place now through Sunday. The winner will get to fly to New York next week to cook brisket live on national television.

Visit the Joe's Real BBQ website for a link to the show's online voting, where you need to register before you can see videos of the five contenders. Good luck, Joe!
