YAZOO CITY, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Yazoo City's Chopped Grill Master's round three champion is competing tonight on the Food Network at nine PM.

Don't miss the opportunity to watch BBQ princess Leslie Scott grill for $50,000 in the finale.

Scott has been running Ubon's Barbecue in Yazoo City with her father, Garry Roark, since 2003.

"We've been a team since 1989," Scott said.

"I mean, she finishes my sentences for me," Roark said. "We've done things so many years together, we have the same brain."

Let's hope tonight's mystery baskets won't include lobster - Scott's biggest challenge on round three.

The judges said they'd never seen somebody put a live lobster on a grill. "My thought process was, that grill is almost 800 degrees.  I bet that will dispatch these lobsters pretty quickly," Scott said. "Then, I can go ahead and pop the tails and put them on the fire."

Scott still has quite a few challenges ahead of her tonight.  But she loves what she does.

"I'm a barbecue girl. I get to live the barbecue life," said Scott.
