One Winner To Be Crowned "Great American Grilling Recipe" Champion (NAPSA) - You think you're pretty creative at the backyard grill. Family, friends, and neighbors from four blocks away rave about your "Rambling Ribs" with homemade cinnamon sauce, and your crowd-pleasing "Family Fiesta Burger" has Uncle Hank begging for the recipe every summer. Prove your grilling prowess and imagination by competing against other grilling gurus across the country in the Great American Grilling Recipe Contest.

Weber Baby Q Gas Grill
Creative, Easy, Appealing

Cosponsored by Schwan's Home Service, Inc. and Weber Grills, the Great American Grilling Recipe Contest is attracting thousands of grilling recipes. All recipe entries will be judged based on three criteria: creative use of the food being grilled, ease of preparation, and appeal to the general public.

"There are an estimated 67 million backyard chefs in America," said Mike Kempster Sr., Weber's executive vice president. "This contest challenges these American grillers and homegrown culinary experts to put their creativity to the test and come up with a completely original recipe that can be prepared on the grill."

"Americans are looking for convenient options allowing them to grill more often," said Mark Jansen, Schwan's vice president of product strategy. "Schwan's offers a wide range of products that can be taken from the freezer and prepared on a grill in minutes."
