Mojobricks and Draper’s BBQ Giveaway

I’m super excited to bring this giveaway to you!  This contest features two of the hottest up-and-coming products on the BBQ competition circuit – Mojobricks ™ and Draper’s BBQ.

I have never had the chance to try out MojoBricks™, but from everything I have read they are an excellent wood source to use for your Big Green Egg, Primo Grill, Ole Hickory, Jambo, or any type of cooker.  MojoBricks™ are an all-natural 100% wood product cut into brick shape.  Available in “Fred Oak”, Maple, and Cherry flavors, MojoBricks™ contains no fillers or binders.  Its smaller size makes it much easier to transport than traditional wood logs, and the absence of creosote gives it a cleaner burn.  I could go on about various facts regarding MojoBricks™, but I prefer to let a couple of people who have used the product speak for themselves:

“Since we began using MojoBricks™, we have had a truly consistent run of success… I’m a believer!” – Kit Rudd, Pitmaster of Degüello BBQ

“I was really impressed with the smoke flavor and the smoke ring they (MojoBricks™) helped me develop. I was so impressed with them that I use them in my catering business daily.  Even my 4 year old daughter says “MojoBricks™ makes good smelling smoke!”” – Neil Strawder, Pitmaster of BigMista BBQ

“… it helped cut my use of charcoal by about ½ of what I would use… I don’t have to worry about moisture content or how long it’s seasoned.  I know that when I put a brick in my pit, I will get the same results every time.” – James R. Tindall, Pitmaster of Big JT’s Smokin BBQ.

As you all know, I am a huge fan of Draper’s BBQ Sauce and Rub.  And when Shane approached me about doing a giveaway in collaboration with Fred Grosse of MojoBricks™, I was quite eager!  So I know what you’re here to find out…  how in the world do I enter??  There are three ways to enter!  You can do one, two, or all three:

  1. Leave a comment on this blog post telling me which flavor of MojoBricks you would pick if you win.
  2. Tweet about this contest on Twitter using the following statement: “I want my @MOJOBRICKS and @drapersbbq from @brownkw!”  You can enter once a day by doing this.
  3. Become a fan of MojoBricks™ and Draper’s BBQ on Facebook.  You’ll need to let me know that you became a fan of these fine companies.  If you already are, then great!

This contest will end at 11:59pm EST on Tuesday, September 13.  I will draw two lucky winners using Random.org to win the following prizes:

  • One pack of MojoBricks™ in your choice of “Fred Oak”, Maple, or Cherry flavors.
  • One bottle of Draper’s Smokin’ BBQ sauce
  • One bottle of Draper’s A.P. BBQ Rub.

Good luck!

UPDATE: I just received an email from Fred Gross of MojoBricks™ with some really good news.  From now until the contest winner is announced, you can take 35% off of your order at http://www.mojobricks.com just by mentioning my name (Wayne Brown) and coupon code WAYNEBROWN.  It’s hard to beat that deal, so take advantage of it while it lasts!!
