Summer season BBQ Cookoff

Come on everyone. The weather is here. It's time to cook outdoors!

To help everyone get started, NCT is sponsoring an outdoor cooking contest. Like many of our contests, we will not be competing against each other. A prize will be awarded, in fact, two of them. There are two categories.

The first is for a main dish prepared outdoors. This includes, but is not limited to, charcoal / gas grill, outdoor dutch oven, campfire and a smoker. If you have any other method of preparing food outdoors and would like to showcase it, please do.

The second category is for a complimentary side dish. We understand that it may not be possible to prepare this entirely outdoors. It should have an outdoor theme and be prepared outdoors if at all possible.

The contest runs from today till Tuesday after Labor Day

Here are the rules:

1) The entry must be prepared during the contest period.
2) The recipe and method must be posted.
3) Pictures are not required, they are highly desirable. Folks just like to see food pix. We know not all of you take pix and we do not want anyone not to enter because of a picture.
4) The winner of each category will be decided by a random drawing. Here is how it works.​
1. You can make as many entries for each category as you like.
2. Each entry gives you one chance in the drawing.
3. The moderator staff will keep a running list of the user name of each entry as many times as someone enters, their name will go on the list in the order of the posted entries.
4. At the close of the contest each entry will get a randomly generated entry number. Then a random drawing will decide the winner.
5. We will post the winner.
6. The same person cannot win both categories.
7. Any site member is eligible. This includes moderators, and the administrator.​

The prize …. Oh yeah! I forgot about that. Here goes. The winner of the main dish gets their choice of $25.00 paypal cash or a gift certificate from Penzies for an equal amount. The winner of the side dish gets the same options on a $15.00 prize.

So, there you have it. The contest starts now and ends. September 4, 2012.
