Let the barbecue battle begin. The episode of Food Wars pitting ribs from Arthur Bryant's against Gates Barbecue airs tonight at 9 on the Travel Channel.

Food Wars was in town back in February, and Fat City readers were offended that Danny Edwards and Oklahoma Joe's didn't make the cut. The show travels to a city to profile two iconic restaurants, recruiting superfans for the ultimate blind taste test. In this case, devotees of Bryant's and Gates will be chewing on some ribs in an attempt to determine who has the best barbecue in town.

If you can't wait until tonight, the Travel Channel has posted a preview clip on YouTube with some slow, beautiful shots of the pork spare ribs at Gates. "Stick a fork in me. I'm done," proclaims host Camille Ford after a single bite. For a brief moment, it seems like the sauce recipe at Gates will be revealed, but after learning there's tomato, salt, sugar and paprika, the rest of the ingredients are described as "a ton of spices." 

On a previous episode,

the show traveled to Pittsburg, Kansas, to determine whether the fried

was better at Chicken Annie's or

Chicken Mary's.
