Free Stuff: Sara Lee’s 4th of July Caption Contest

Posted by Jason on June 22, 2009

Free StuffPerhaps the most eloquent description of the 4th of July was delivered by Apu from The Simpsons when he muttered to Homer: “What better way to celebrate the birth of your country then by blowing up a small piece of it!” It just so happens that I agree with Apu, but he failed to mention to the other two ingredients for successful 4th…barbecue and booze. We’d love to be able to ship you a case of Bakon Vodka and artillery shells, but Federal regulations prevail. Instead, we’re hooking you up with some barbecue related freebies, courtesy of Sara Lee, to make sure your Independence Day meat feast goes off with a bang!

Free Stuff: Barbecue Sauce Kits From MUG Root Beer

Posted by Aaron on June 18, 2009

Mug Root BeerJust in time for Father’s Day (well close enough anyway) we have another giveaway for you. If your dad (or yourself, we’re not really discriminating here) has ever wanted to make his own barbecue sauce, but never knows where to start we have a treat for you. MUG Root Beer generously gave us one of their kits to test out. They are also letting us give you, our loyal readers, 10 barbecue sauce kits for Father’s Day gifts (to be used later since I’m late). Anyway, we’re going to make this a quick contest so we’ll randomly select five people who sign up for our periodic email newsletter (we promise not to annoy you with it) and/or comment below (doing both increases your chances). We’ll pick the winners tomorrow and update this post so hurry!

I was a bit hesitant at first because I didn’t know what was going to be included in the kit, I didn’t want a bunch of pre-mixed ingredients. When I received the package I was pleasantly surprised to find all fresh ingredients inside a nice Mug Root Beer cooler! Since I have made BBQ sauce with various cola’s before (usually Dr. Pepper) I wasn’t too scared to try it out with some root beer.
