Are you known for your burgers? Do you have a knack for gauging meat temperatures? Or is your BBQ sauce famous in three counties? The Meat Contest is on and we’ve partnered with the meat aficionados at Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors to give away a whole lot of beef.

Enter your recipes for a chance to win filet mignon steaks, tomahawk steaks, a sampler package, Pat LaFrieda apron, and the ultimate meat cookbook. We want to see how you roast, flame broil, and grill your meats. There will also be a special judges' prize for the best rib recipe. Entries will be judged based on creativity, originality, and documentation of the recipe. Now fire up that grill and show us what a well-seasoned chef you are!

Unfortunately, meat cannot be shipped internationally.  International winners will receive an Amazon gift card.
