Synopsis: Brothers John and Don McLemore will attempt to create a tank-sized strawberry shortcake big enough to feed a graduating military class and their families in the all-new special BIG FOOD. In the one-hour special, John and Don head to Fort Benning, Ga., home of the United States Army Armor School, to embark on their most outrageous food challenge to date – a strawberry shortcake the size of a tank to honor the armory school graduates. The brothers, who first started engineering cooking products 40 years ago as part of their family business, Masterbuilt, will have three days to assemble the necessary ovens and tools to build a 15-foot-high and 32-foot- long cake. Faced with difficult delivery logistics and deadlines, John and Don must enlist the help from the local community to ensure the cake is a success. (Courtesy CMT, 2013)
