How To Enter the Low & Slow BBQ Contest

Picture of How To Enter the Low & Slow BBQ Contest
Summer is finally heating up and we're going to celebrate with a BBQ contest! And when we say BBQ, we're talking about food over coals, not grilling. So if you think you're the master of fire and how to cook with it, then put up your best Instructables for the Low & Slow BBQ contest!

We're looking for recipes, techniques, and even ways to build your own BBQ. Just make sure to take plenty of mouth-watering photos and provide helpful text so others can follow in your footsteps. Impress us and you'll win a Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker and a signed copy of Low & Slow BBQ to ensure that your BBQ reign continues.

To help us out this time we're going to have an expert judge, Gary Wiviott, select the winners. Wiviott has just released his own book on the topic, Low & Slow BBQ, based on years and years of experience.

Gary Wiviott is a barbecue life coach. From the popular online tutorial that started it all to his lively cooking demonstrations and teaching diehards how to set up a smoker in Chicago's notoriously brutal winter weather, he is committed to spreading the gospel of low and slow barbecue.

Now get to it and let's see some great food!

Multiple entries are allowed, but each user can only win one prize.
International entries are allowed for this contest, but the Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker can only be shipped within the U.S.

Grand Prize
18.5" Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker

Signed copy of Low & Slow BBQ by Gary Wiviott.

Can we vote on the entries or is it up to the expert?

BBQ, low and slow usually means a smoker, at least in this part of the U.S. (south) There is always confusion between grilling out (using open flame and a grate) and a flattop grill, just as there's confusion between BBQ (low and slow cooking using smoke) and that which is practiced in other parts of the country in the backyard. And just to add to the confusion there is also open pit bbq. So this could get interesting
Agreed. I haven't logged in for quite a while, but this is right up my alley. (Meat eater in Seattle.) Grilling is different from BBQ. This is why I invite people for a 'grilling'. I run a couple of Weber's and a smoker for flavor. Wish I had logged in before my grill tonight. Didn't even think of taking pictures, or accounting for what I did. MMMMhh. Hickory chicken thighs, slow and low....
Well lets say that you got rid of your weber because it wasn't hot enough (various reasons) and only have a propane, an oven, and a crock pot.. Can you still enter?
Needs to be a BBQ entry for a BBQ contest.
Like BBQ sauce, ribs, chicken, barbecue food?
"We're looking for recipes, techniques, and even ways to build your own BBQ"
No, that's not about the cooking.
would how to make a fire the boy scout way plus juicy burgers count?
Well building a BBQ isn't food.
So sauces would be good. Ribs and chicken and other stuff on a grill is fine. Just the other day a friend put mussels on the grill and it came out great.
