Of all of the great sports for men, only one leaves competitors covered with sauce, smelling like smoke, and is the preferred cologne of most men

the great sport of BBQ!  

Barbecue is the staple of gatherings with friends and family on sunny afternoons and has become serious business for amateur cooks who want to prove nobody does it better.

If this describes you, and you think you’re the grill MASTER, then show your stuff off at the
