Posted by Jason on May 19, 2010

Free StuffWith spring in full gear, and summer coming fast, your grilling season should already be well underway. At this point the only valid excuse for not partaking in your first outdoor cook of the season is because you simply don’t own a grill or smoker. Lucky for you, Sam’s Club has stepped up and given us a grill to give away to one lucky backyard chef. Consider it a free jump-start to get your summer barbecue back on track!

Posted by Jason on September 11, 2009

National Pork BoardNow that we’re close to a week after International Bacon Day and my own personal 24 hour bacon feast, the salt induced swelling in my fingers has finally subsided enough to announce the winners of our Bacon Day Giveaways. If you follow me on Twitter (@BBQAddictsJason), then you were lucky enough to have a few extra chances to score a Bacon Day Goodie Bag. Thanks to everyone who participate in the bacon trivia contest, the bacon scavenger hunt, and the bacon raffle. Before we announce all of the winners, I also want to thank theotherwhitemeat.com for hooking us up with the awesome Bacon Goodie Bags containing a bacon gift certificate, a bacon cookbook, bacon bandages, bacon seasoning, and bacon candy. Without further ado, here are the winners…

Free Stuff: International Bacon Day Photo Contest

Posted by Jason on September 3, 2009

BaconThe last Saturday before Labor Day is almost upon us, which means we’re getting close to the porkiest holiday the world has to offer. For those not in the know, I’m talking about International Bacon Day. It’s the one day a year that the citizens of Earth put aside their differences and bask in the glory of the world’s most perfect food. Okay, so maybe it’s not quite to that level yet, but you can certainly do your part by partaking in a bacon feast…and score some free bacon schwag for doing so!!!

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.
