It’s that time of year again! Spring! Which in addition to debilitating allergies, means it’s time to break out the grill. If the warmer weather wasn’t enough to clue you in to the onset of grilling season, the fact that you can’t flip on Food Network without seeing someone toiling away at an open flame would be a dead giveaway.
Oh, and speaking of giveaway, we’re partnering with the folks at Food Network for a little contest that will let you show off your grilling adventures, past or present. All you need to do is send us your story about the craziest thing you have ever grilled. Have a creative topping for that burger that goes beyond just Dijon mustard? Thrown something on the grill that you’re sure no one ever had grilled before you? Maybe you’ve traveled to the ends of the earth for the greatest grill of all. Send in your story and you can be rocking the grill like a pro this summer with our sweet grand prize:
Nobody grills it like Bobby Flay, whose Grill It! can be seen on Food Network on Sundays at 9 am. And so, it’s only fitting that our winner be able to do his or her best Bobby Flay impression with some real gear. So our first place winner will receive a Food Network / Bobby Flay Grilling Basket, which includes an All-Clad BBQ Tool Set, Bobby Flay’s Burger, Fries, and Shakes cookbook and a canvas bag. To our runners up, we’ll be sending copies of Down Home With The Neelys cookbook and a copy of the latest Food Network Magazine, which is all about the burger this month.
Now that you know what you’re getting, how do you enter? Tell us, in 100 words or less, about your most unusual, unique or just plain out-there grilling or barbecue experience, past or present. While we won’t be fact-checking, let’s keep it to true stories…we don’t want to hear about cooking brisket for Mahatma Gandhi and Napoleon. The story (and feel free to include photos!) should be sent to email@example.com between now and midnight, Eastern time on Wednesday, May 20th.
We’ll be announcing the winners late next week, so get your story in now!
