So how good a barbecuer are you?

Not trying to start a fight, but the people at Cattlemen's want to find good barbecue recipes and, naturally, they've got a contest going to find it.

Those of you familiar with our local barbecue restaurants know that several of them use Cattlemen's sauce. It's a national brand, and with barbecue season in full steam, the heat is on for the Biggest BBQ Genius.

At this point, the Cattlemen’s folks want us to point out that it is the choice of the last 14 World BBQ Champions. The company is looking for more inspiration for barbecue afficionados.

The contest entry time is from now until Sept. 1. Submit your BBQ idea, recipe, tip or trick, accompanied by an optional photo or video and you may be eligible to win the grand prize – the Ultimate Backyard Grill (AV $2,000).

Each day Cattlemen’s will pick one winning Genius idea to feature on the site. That winner will receive a Certified BBQ Genius T-shirt. Entries will be judged on the following criteria: quality, originality, creativity and the best platform for showcasing Cattlemen’s BBQ Sauce.

All entries must be submitted by Sept. 1 with daily first prize winners selected approximately weekly. Daily first Prize winners will make up the pool of not more than One hundred Twenty (120) Grand Prize finalists who will receive Cattelmen’s T-shirts and be eligible for the grand prize. Final judging to determine the contest grand prize winner will be conducted approximately between Sept. 2 and Sept. 12.
