Brand new episodes of Dirty Jobs are coming to the Discovery Channel. Dirty Jobs is hosted by everyman Mike Rowe. In the series, Rowe investigates and gets his hands dirty in some downright nasty occupations.
In premiere episode of Dirty Jobs, Rowe will go to work at a famous Georgia barbeque establishment. Rowe learns the greasy job of making great tasting smoked meat. Some of the tasks Rowe completes include climbing into and cleaning out the barbeque smoker and power washing the grill.
After the barbeque job, Rowe travels Montana to become the apprentice of a large animal vet. His first task is to help a llama with an abscessed tooth. Rowe also works on a sick horse that needs a very unusual checkup.
After the vet apprentice job, Rowe travels to New Jersey to work in excavating oil tanks. Rowe drains gunk from a tank, digs up asphalt, and crawls inside a sludge-filled space. Rowe must race to complete his job because a large rainstorm is moving into the area.
Dirty Jobs premieres on Tuesday, January 8, 2008 at 9 PM ET/PT on the Discovery Channel.
