Announcing the She-Smoke Virtual BBQ Contest

Julie Reinhardt, co-owner of Smokin’ Pete’s BBQ in Seattle and author of the newly released She-Smoke: A Backyard Barbecue Book (Seal Press/ June 2009), is excited to announce the She-Smoke Virtual Barbecue Contest, which aims to create the largest virtual barbecue in the world. Perfect for Memorial Day and the upcoming summer weekends, The She-Smoke Contest will not only bring together the wonderful community of BBQ, but will also serve as a fundraiser for Heifer International to fight world hunger, as Julie will donate $1 to the organization for every entry.

Here's how the contest works:

1) View the contest trailer HERE.
2) Have a barbecue and video tape it.
3) In your 1-3 minute video tell us what you are smoking or grilling (we're not going to get too hung up on definitions here), and tell us what barbecue means to you.
4) Upload your video in response to the trailer on YouTube.
5) For every entry we will donate $1 to Heifer International.
6) Contest dates are now through June 15th. Winners will be announced by July 5th.

Categories include:

1) Best looking barbecue (we can't eat it virtually, so make it a feast for our eyes!)
2) Best Video
3) Best Party - let us feel like we are there!
4) Most Interesting Smoker
5) Best Overall Entry/Grand Champion

Winners will receive a signed copy of She-Smoke: A Backyard Barbecue Book, and the Grand Champion will receive a Junior Traeger Grill! A $399 value, thanks to Traeger Grills!

We look forward to seeing all your BBQ videos!
