The remaining seven chefs undertake a test of transformation. In the Secret Ingredient Challenge, the chefs transform traditional American condiments into unique recipes. Next, the competitors head to the San Diego County Fair where they must gather ingredients from the concession stands in a mad dash to transform their fair food into Iron Chef-worthy dishes for the Chairman's Challenge. During the difficult battle, the chefs prepare their food on "The Outlaw Grill," the world's largest grill, but one chef can't take the heat.
After a mad dash for ingredients, the chefs transform classic fair foods on a 27-ton grill.
