OLYMPIA — Ranch House BBQ founder and prize-winning pitmaster Amy Anderson is featured in Food Network’s special “Grill Girls.”

It airs 9 p.m. tonight; 12 a.m. Wednesday; 2 p.m. Saturday; 6 p.m. Sunday.

Here’s the network’s hype:

“This one-hour special showcases women who are taking over backyard barbecues and competitive big rigs. Meet an all-women’s barbecue team hoping to make a name for themselves on the BBQ circuit and find out why women are moving their cooking to the back yard. Plus, discover how women are changing the way we think about what’s for dinner and the new grilling products and must-have gadgets that are made with the ladies in mind. “

Food Network shot the Ranch House segment in December. I enjoyed Ranch House’s barbecued brisket, pork and sausage this weekend.

There weren’t enough pork ribs in my $20.99 super sampler, so I can’t yet say for sure whether the ribs stack up against Ranch House’s claim of having the “best rack in town.” But I’ll be back to suckle some St. Louis-style pigcicles soon.

Ranch House BBQ: 10841 Kennedy Creek Road SW, Olympia, 360-866-8704.
