Food Network introduces the (unofficial) "First Family" of Mississippi and barbecue royalty in the new series "The Shed," premiering Monday, Aug. 5, at 10 p.m. The six-episode series chronicles the exploits of the Orrison clan, founders of The Shed, one of the most popular barbecue joints in Mississippi.

The self-proclaimed "ShedHeds" have amassed hundreds of awards and something of a cult following. Follow the Orrisons and their ever-growing business empire on their outlandish and unexpected adventures - nothing is too wild for the ShedHeds and their colorful cast of characters.

Brad Orrison is the inventive barbecue genius behind The Shed. Brad turned his love of Dumpster diving into a construction project, and with his sister Brooke, built The Shed when he was only 24 years old. As co-owner of the family business, Brooke Lewis is a savvy businesswoman and has the accolades to prove it.

With the help of their parents, Daddy-O, who runs The Saucery and makes their award-winning sauces, Mama Shed, the marketing director for the booming joint - and some of their quirky friends, the Shed Pimps: Big Hoss and Coal Miner - the ShedHeds continue to grow this barbecue empire.

Customers come out of the woodwork for The Shed's famous barbecue and The ShedHeds will have their hands full throughout the series. From catering barbecue feasts and bayou weddings to Brad and Brooke's playful sibling rivalry and barbecue competitions with the whole gang, it's never a dull moment at The Shed.
