Forget the Kumbaya

Unlike any traditional summer camp you may know, Alton Brown's Camp Cutthroat brings eviliciousness to the great outdoors. Recently Alton told Food Network's FN Dish blog that when it comes to camp essentials, the chefs shouldn't leave home without "Rodent-of-Unusual-Size repellent, anything-that-stings repellent [and] wolverine repellent," among other items.

Danger Everywhere

Alton, look out! Not even the host is safe from the hazards of the woods.

The Briefcase Does Casual Friday

You know the shiny metal briefcase that usually stores the Cutthroat funds? Alton left that fancy piece of hardware at the Cutthroat arena and instead opted for a more woodsy-looking briefcase that's fitting for the great outdoors.

Logo Treatment

Do you notice something different about the Camp Cutthroat logo? There's a lantern hanging from the rod where there's usually a spoon.

Hidden Sabotage Treasure

X marks the spot — of sabotage, that is. Check out this official Camp Cutthroat treasure map to get a lay of the land in the diabolical woods. 

Judges in the Wild

Just because the chefs are competing outdoors doesn't mean they'll be judged any more leniently. Alton rounded up the usual judges, including Simon Majumdar, to decide the futures of the chefs in battle.

Camp Cash

Instead of purchasing frozen treats or suntan lotion from the canteen like you would at a traditional camp, the chefs at Camp Cutthroat can spend their signature cash on the most diabolical of sabotages.
