TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - It all came down to the Cuban Burger. That’s the mouthwatering creation that central Floridian Jose Juarez whipped up to earn the title “America’s New Grill Star” on ABC’s “Live with Kelly and Michael.”

Juarez, who was named the winner on Friday’s show, will star in his own web series on “Live” and AOL.com and receive a $10,000 check. He even got a shout out from Gov. Rick Scott who said he can’t wait to try Juarez’ BBQ.

Juarez winning creation combo Cuban sandwich/rib-eye steak burger featured mojo-marinated pulled pork, sweet ham, ground rib-eye steak, grilled pickles and his special 4-5-5 sauces.

Juarez and the runner up served their creations to several legendary chefs, including “Chopped” judges Marcus Samuelsson and Alex Guarnaschelli and a group of audience members.
