I'm not sure if this is considered banned promotion so delete it if you must, but I just wanted to pass on a good opportunity for burger-making hounds who also have an appetite for competition and cash prizes. I have no association w/ this contest beyond being a proponent of tasty, juicy beef burgers. I heard about this in my local paper yesterday and think I may have seen a prior competition on the Food Network once.
So here's your big chance to win $50K for doing what you've probably been doing for years...making what you consider to be the best damn burger (or like me, at least striving for that). Sorry to say that those who live in CA (moi) and UT aren't eligible since this is sponsored by Sutter Home Winery. Shucks, I would have seriously considered submitting something for this. The reason they exclude Californians is kinda ludicrous. See link for more info on that and all the details.
The deadline of August 26th is fast-approaching so send those recipes in! Best of luck!
