Consumers Encouraged to “Let’s Get Grilling” to win BBQ Battle Tickets

Winners Receive Tickets to 2016 Giant National Capital Barbecue Battle in Washington, D.C.

The national beef checkoff, through its Northeast Beef Promotion Initiative (NEBPI) and in partnership with the South Dakota Beef Industry Council (SDBIC), is encouraging consumers to test their Beef I.Q. through the online “Let’s Get Grilling” contest for the chance to win a grilling-beef prize pack and tickets to the Giant National Capital Barbecue Battle in Washington, D.C. on June 25-26.

The online “Let’s Get Grilling” contest runs from May 23, through 9 p.m. ET, Sunday, June 19, 2016.

Each week during the month-long contest, participants will be asked two beef-related questions, ranging from nutritional value to cooking methods to various cuts of beef. Each entry places the eligible player into a drawing for a pair of tickets to the 2016 Giant Barbecue Battle, plus some beef-checkoff swag. Two separate winners will be chosen at random each week of the contest. Of those winners, one lucky winner will be selected to receive an upgraded family four-pack of VIP tickets to the BBQ Battle, a Roseda Beef meat package, a tour of Roseda Angus Farm and a Weber Grill!

Entries for the “Let’s Get Grilling” Contest must be submitted online via the NEBPI Facebook page each week during the contest period of May 23 – June 19; limit one entry per email address per day. The sweepstakes is open to individuals 21 years or older living in Virginia, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey and South Dakota.

The beef checkoff also is an official product sponsor of the 2016 Giant National Capital Barbecue Battle this June. Festival participants are invited to visit the Beef Booth on Pennsylvania Avenue during the weekend, to get recipe ideas, beef barbecue and grilling tips, and facts about the nutritional benefits and versatility of beef. Be sure to follow this checkoff activity on social media – Facebook and Twitter – for great summertime beef recipes and events using #DCLuvsBeef.
