Insane BBQer/Tailgater Challenge – Win Free Pork Barrel BBQ Products If You’re The Most Hardcore, Extreme & Insane BBQer/Tailgater in America

cold-thermometer

How hardcore of a BBQer/Tailgater are you? If you’re out manning the grill or smoker over the next few days in many parts of the country you will certainly enter the ranks of the hardcore and possibly insane. According to weather experts it has been decades since many parts of the country have experienced a deep freeze like the one expected to hit the Midwest and East Coast beginning on Sunday into early next week.  Temperature predictions include -31 in International Falls, MN, -15 in Indianapolis, -10 in St. Louis and -25 in Fargo, ND with wind chills reaching as low as 70 below zero in parts of the country.

Sunday’s Green Bay Packers game against the San Francisco 49ers has a chance to eclipse the Ice Bowl as the coldest NFL game ever played with temperatures expected to fall somewhere between -4 and -15 with wind chills near -30. There is no question you’re a hardcore fan and tailgater if you’re planning to tailgate before this game. You’re probably a little bit insane too! 

This weather pattern is apparently a once a decade or every couple decades event so be safe if you plan to get out and BBQ in it. If you’re insane enough to get outside and fire up the grill or smoker in temps as low as -25 we want to reward you with some free Pork Barrel BBQ Products.

Here’s how it works:

1. Contest runs Saturday, January 4, 2014 through Wednesday, January 8, 2014. 

2. Take a photo of yourself BBQing with a thermometer showing how cold it is where you’re BBQing (extra hardcore points for photos of you tailgating at the Packers/49ers game with a thermometer in hand). Post your photo to our Twitter page (@PorkBarrelBBQ) between January 4 and January 8 and use the hashtag #InsaneColdBBQer and tell us how cold it is where you are BBQing. 

3. Prizes will be awarded to the three photos showing the coldest temperature on the thermometer. The coldest temperature will win a free Pork Barrel BBQ Party Pack, the second coldest temperature will win a Pork Barrel BBQ Picnic Pack and the third coldest temperature will win a 19oz Jar of Pork Barrel BBQ All-American Spice Rub.

Be safe and stay warm if you can. You can get frostbite on exposed skin in just minutes in temperatures this low. Get inside and warm up if you start asking yourself why am I putting my body through this?

Now let’s find out who is the most hardcore, extreme and insane BBQer/Tailgater in America!

The 25 Most Influential People in BBQ – Number 1: The Backyard BBQer

Today we conclude the countdown to the Most Influential Person in BBQ with the Most Influential Person in BBQ. Coming in as the Most Influential Person in BBQ is the Backyard BBQer.

backyard

In the post announcing we were going to be revealing our list of the 25 Most Influential People in BBQ we noted that there are over 317,000,000 people in America and the vast majority of them are part of the barbecue community to some degree. Some are competition BBQ pitmasters, some are restaurateurs, others are makers of commercial sauces and rubs, but all of these folks and millions more are Backyard BBQer’s. According to a 2011 study conducted by the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association, 86% of all U.S. households own a grill or smoker and 99% of them used them at least once in the past year. These weekend warriors of barbecue cooked billions of meals and hosted millions of backyard barbecues this year and spent billions of dollars on grills & smokers, charcoal, sauces, rubs and meats. They perused millions of recipes and product reviews in books, magazines and barbecue specific blogs like Amazing Ribs, Grill Grrrl,  Grilling with Rich, and Embers & Flame and watched hours of shows on TV dedicated to BBQ like BBQ Pitmasters and Bobby Flay’s Barbecue Addiction

 Weber Kettle

Perhaps the only thing more common than a Weber Kettle in the backyards of America is grass. The Backyard BBQer enormous pocketbook makes them the greatest influencer of the success or failure of numerous barbecue related business. Each year new grills and smokers hit the market vying for a place in the backyards of the American BBQer – some will succeed and others will fail in large part due to the reception they receive from the Backyard BBQer. Grocery stores across the country have shelves filled with dozens of BBQ sauces, marinades and rubs that fight each and everyday to hold onto and grow their share of the market that is controlled by the Backyard BBQer. It seems appropriate that the most American of foods – barbecue – is influenced the most by not a single individual, but by the Backyard BBQer, who makes up a great percetnage of the entire American population. If you’re a part of the BBQ world and hoping to make an impact, you’d better figure out a way to get the Backyard BBQer on your side for they are the most important influencer in the world of BBQ!

The 25 Most Influential People in BBQ – Number 2: Bobby Flay

Today we continue the countdown to the Most Influential Person in BBQ with the 2nd most influential person in BBQ. Coming in as the 2nd Most Influential Person in BBQ is Food Network personality, restaurateur and cookbook author, Bobby Flay

Bob

The growth in the notion of food as more than just sustenance into something more akin to hobby, art, love and entertainment can be traced back to the likes of Julia Child, Jacques Pepin, and Justin Wilson to name a few. These early pioneers taught us that something so seemingly exotic and foreign as French or Cajun cooking is within our grasp and could be prepared in our home kitchens as simply as it can be prepared in a professional kitchen at a Michelin Star restaurant in Manhattan if you just follow a few easy steps. They made cooking fun and made it more accessible to home cooks which in turn moved food away from the simple notion of sustenance and helped to create the current foodie world we live in.

Bobby Flay is to BBQ as Child or Pepin were to French food or Wilson to Cajun food. No one in the world of barbecue is more recognizable or well known across the board, from championship pitmaster to backyard BBQ’er to mom’s and dad’s buying grocery’s for the week, as Bobby Flay. Flay is a critically-acclaimed chef and restaurateur and award-winning cookbook author, but more important to his influence is his presence as a television personality and celebrity chef. Flay’s accolades range from having his Mesa Grill restaurant named Best Restaurant by New York Magazine to being named the James Beard Foundation’s Rising Star Chef of the Year.

bbf

Flay’s influence in BBQ began to grow in 1995 when he joined the fledgling Food Network and teamed up with Philadelphia chef Jack McDavid for the show Grillin & Chillin which cast Flay as the city slicker who only used gas and McDavid as the country boy who only used charcoal and wood. Over the course of the next 19 years Flay would mold himself into a well diversified BBQer and enter the homes of millions of food lovers and BBQer’s across American and the globe with barbecue themed shows including Hot Off the Grill with Bobby Flay, BBQ with Bobby Flay, Boy Meets Grill with Bobby Flay, Grill It! with Bobby Flay, Throwdown with Bobby Flay, and Bobby Flay’s Barbecue Addiction. Flay’s reach to cooks and pitmasters of varying degrees of skill is far greater than anyone else in the world of BBQ and his love and passion for live fire cooking inspires thousands of people each year to take the leap into live fire cooking. 

FlayFlay’s influence on the world of BBQ can also be felt at the bookstore where his cookbooks continue to be among the best selling barbecue themed cookbooks every written. Among his list of cookbooks are the barbecue themed Bobby Flay’s Barbecue Addition from this year and Bobby Flay’s Grill It, Bobby Flay’S Boy Meets Grill, Bobby Flay’s Boy Gets Grill, and Bobby Flay’s Grilling For Life. As long as Flay remains at the Food Network, foods biggest platform, and continues to promote his love of BBQ through television and books Flay will remain one of the major influences in food in general and BBQ more specifically.

 

On December 31st we’ll unveil the most influential person in BBQ. We’ll unveil a new member of our Most Influential Person in BBQ List each day through the end of the year and we’ll crown The Most Influential Person in BBQ on Tuesday, December 31st.

The 25 Most Influential People in BBQ – Number 3: John Markus

Today we continue the countdown to the Most Influential Person in BBQ with the 3rd most influential person in BBQ. Coming in as the 3rd Most Influential Person in BBQ is BBQ media mogul and producer of BBQ Pitmasters, John Markus.

jm

Few people have had the impact on BBQ over the past few years that John Markus has had. We live in a world where television is as big of an influencer as anything else and Markus has done BBQ television better than anyone else from his original show All Star BBQ Showdown to his current hit BBQ Pitmasters. Markus might not be a household name to the millions of people who have tuned in to watch an episode of BBQ Pitmasters, but he has greatly contributed to the transformation of a number of world class pitmasters like Myron Mixon, Tuffy Stone, Johnny Trigg, & Diva Q (to name a few) into household names and the current faces and ambassadors of BBQ to not just the BBQ crazed, but more importantly to the average backyard BBQer. The growing popularity of BBQ competitions has BBQ Pitmasters to thank for much of its growth. Since the premier of BBQ Pitmasters we’ve seen the number of contests grow dramatically, the attendance at many contests by onlookers has surged, larger named sponsors are now sponsoring contests and as a result of all of these factors prize money is increasing allowing more and more pitmasters to make a living from competition BBQ and the ancillary spoils that come with it like restaurants and commercial sauces and rubs. 

pit

Beyond his hit television shows Markus took a group of championship pitmasters to Kuwait in 2010 and fed more than 5,000 men and women of the U.S. Armed Services. While on tour with the USO Markus and a film crew filmed their adventure and released the documentary, The Kings of BBQ: Barbecue Kuwait in 2013. Markus’s years in television before he fell for BBQ has allowed him to create a product that is consumable to not just the rabid BBQ enthusiast, but the general population, which has helped to grow BBQ in America over the past few years at a greater rate than ever enjoyed. We look forward to seeing what Markus has up his sleeve next, but are certain it will influence the way BBQ moves forward. 

On December 30th we’ll unveil the 2nd most influential person in BBQ. We’ll unveil a new member of our Most Influential Person in BBQ List each day through the end of the year and we’ll crown The Most Influential Person in BBQ on Tuesday, December 31st.
