It's summer - the season to be cooking up tasty food outside on the grill!

The weather's hot, the drinks are cold, and you're ready for something good. Show us a great summer recipe or grill technique, and win an Instructables apron to keep your clothes clean while you cook up your next masterpiece.

Your Instructables can cover foods that go on the grill or go well with grilled food, BBQ sauces, or anything to do with the fine art of grilling. Just make it tasty and be sure to include some awesome pictures to make everyone hungry.

Remember, this is a speed contest. You have two full weekends to show us something delicious, but hurry -- the contest closes on July 6 at 11:59 pm PST. Winners will be decided by user votes.

Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select BBQ PDQ Contest. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.
