Most of you know that one of my favorite BBQ and grilling people on the Internet is Robyn Medlin Lindars, aka GrillGrrrl.  She is a great source of information for tasty recipes that anyone can cook on their outdoor cooker.  She is also running a contest Nov. 5-14 to giveaway one of these beauties: a Char-Broil “Big Easy” Oil-less Infrafred Turkey Fryer!

Details on how to enter to win can be found on the blog post for this contest.  Let Robyn know that Big Wayner sent you!

Contest Bites: KLB “That’s Good Mustard” BBQ Sauce Giveaway

This evening, I came across a tweet in my Twitter feed from Kevin Bobo of KLB’s BBQ Sauce promoting a giveaway of his “That’s Good Mustard” BBQ Sauce!  I was lucky enough to win a bottle in his last giveaway, and I wanted to let you know about this one.

"That's Good Mustard"

"That's Good Mustard"

Now I have not tried the sauce yet, but it is on my immediate “must try” list as soon as I get the opportunity.  I’ve also read nothing but good things about the sauce, as you can see from my good friend Wilfred Reinke’s review of the sauce.

So how do you enter?  It’s super simple.  Just go the Facebook page for KLBFoods LLC, the company behind KLB’s BBQ Sauce, and click the “Like” button at the top of the page.  Yep, it’s that easy.  One winner will be chosen at random to receive a free 17 oz. bottle of his sauce.

Let Kevin know that Big Wayner sent you.  Good luck!!

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!!

Big Wayner’s Birthday Blowout Drawing

First off, I owe a huge “Thank  you” to the companies who contributed giveaways to Big Wayner’s Birthday Blowout — C-Dub’s BBQ Rub, Draper’s BBQ, Willie’s Hog Dust, Uncle Kenny’s BBQ, and Pirate Jonny’s.  Second, I want to thank everyone who entered the contest and made it a huge success!  There were a grand total of 266 entries!!  As much as I would love to give everyone some sort of prize, I only have one bundle.

My first intent was to place a video of the drawing up on YouTube.  However, I ended up having technical difficulties doing so.  So I decided to simply take a picture of the winning entry…

The lucky winner!

The lucky winner!

Congratulations to our winner above!  You have 48 hours to email me at bigwaynerbbq@gmail.com so that I can get your prizes sent out to you.

Thanks again for entering Big Wayner’s Birthday Blowout and making this a huge success!  Continue to follow Big Wayner’s BBQ Blog on Twitter and Facebook where I’ll continue to post reviews and other miscellaneous banter.

HotSauceWeekly — BBQ Sauce Roundtable

[tweetmeme source=”brownkw” only_single=false]

Just wanted to share something really cool with you.  A few weeks ago, I was asked by Brian of HotSauceWeekly.com if I would be interested in taking part in a BBQ Sauce Roundtable.  Honestly, I was really surprised and flattered!  I’ve been actively blogging since the beginning of this year, and having someone ask me to be part of a podcast was just really freakin’ cool!

So last night, I took part in recording the BBQ Sauce Roundtable for HotSauceWeekly.com.  Also taking part in the podcast were Brian and Marilyn Meagher of HotSauceWeekly, Larry Gaian of The BBQ Grail, Cyndi Allison of Barbecue Master and Yes You Can Grill, and Brian Henderson of BBQ Sauce Reviews.  The roundtable discussion is now live and can be checked out at http://hotsauceweekly.com/hsw-045-bbq-sauce-roundtable/.

Also, just a friendly reminder that the Birthday Blowout is still in full swing.  You can enter daily, so enter away!
