Tony Siragusa Kicks Off Football Season With a Sweet Recipe Contest
(NAPSA) - For many, tailgating isn't just a pregame meal, it's an obsession. Ribs, burgers and barbecued chicken are the all-stars of tailgating feasts, and the key to a winning recipe is in the sauce.
A blend of herbs and spices starts off a great sauce, but there is one ingredient that gives barbecue an extra special flavor, and it's honey! Now tailgate chefs have a chance to enter their honey barbecue recipe and see if it scores.
This football season, the National Honey Board is sponsoring the "Honey of a BBQ Tailgating Contest," in which the grand prize is a trip for two to professional football's All-Star Game in Hawaii. Thirty-two semifinalists will be chosen to represent each of professional football's 32 teams, and each semifinalist will win $250.
Recipes can be anything from a sauce or marinade to a salad dressing, side dish, or even a dessert. The only requirement is that the recipe includes 1/3 cup of honey.
"There's nothing better on football Sunday than some good tailgating," said Tony Siragusa, former professional football player and current FOX commentator. "I love everything barbecued-ribs, wings and burgers, too. But what makes them extra tasty is a honey barbecue sauce, and that's why I'm excited to see what these football fans are going to cook up."
Tailgaters are as passionate about their food as they are about their team. In fact, nearly half of all tailgaters set up shop in the parking lots of their favorite teams six to 10 times per season, and 50 percent roll into the parking lot three to four hours before a game, with plenty of time to grill up their secret recipes before the game.
Now tailgaters can root for their favorite football team and their prized honey barbecue recipe by entering the "Honey of a BBQ Tailgating Contest."
To enter, go to www.honey.com and submit your recipe online. Or, send your recipe, name, address, phone number and the name of your favorite professional football team to "Honey of a BBQ Tailgating Contest," 400 Capitol Mall, Suite 2640, Sacramento, CA 95814.
