Update December 13:

Unfortunately, Charleston chefs are 0-2 in the Kitchen Stadium.

Sean Brock cheffed the hell out of pork fat in Sunday night's episode, but ultimately, Iron Chef Michael Symon won over the judges.

The Charleston City Paper has a post on Brock's viewing party at The Griffon; read it here.

First reporting:

Apparently December is going to be the month of Charleston on Iron Chef.

FIG's Mike Lata went up against Iron Chef Jose Garces on December 5, and now, Husk's Sean Brock (also a James Beard winner) will finally get his battle against Iron Chef Michael Symon shown on December 12.

Apparently the secret ingredient is one that has Brock excited and that means you should be, too. He said on Twitter, "it's us battle on iron chef america december're gonna love the secret ingredient."

The Post and Courier has a nice post on Brock and his excitement over the upcoming premiere.

Air times are slated for December 12 at 10 p.m., the 13th a 1 a.m., and the 16th at 11 p.m.
