She-Smoke Contest Update -We have a Grand Prize from Traeger Grills!

Great news! , Bruce Bjorkman, aka Mr. Barbecue, called me from Traeger Grills. They are donating a Junior Traeger Pellet Grill for the She-Smoke Virtual Barbecue Contest Grand Prize! Valued at $399, this grill is perfect for the home barbecuer. Thank you Traeger!

It's been quite a first full day of the contest. Greg Rempe mentioned the contest on his Barbecue Central radio show tonight and earlier booked me for an interview on June 16. More details about that later. Former PI Food Writer Rebekah Denn and I will be talking on Friday for her wonderful blog Eat All About It.

Heifer International is jazzed about the support and aims to spread the word to their supporters. If you haven't read about the contest and fundraiser, see below or click here. Don't forget - even if you aren't ready to enter yet, post comments and rate the trailer. It all helps getting visibility on YouTube. And most of all...tell your friends. Think beyond borders because a virtual barbecue can happen anywhere. We are hoping to cross as many borders as possible.


  1. Traegers are really cool grills, and Bruce is a great guy. Super prize for the contest.

  2. Thank you, Grill Girl. I was thrilled when Bruce called! Cool website you have there.

  3. Congrats on getting a cool grill for your contest! That's awesome. I've never heard of Smokin' Pete's BBQ. But now I find myself craving BBQ - Hmmm, I may have to find out where it is and pay you a visit soon!

  4. Come on by, Trisha! Smokin' Pete's BBQ is located in Ballard - 1918 NW 65th. Go to www.smokinpetesbbq.com for a map. Hope to see you soon!
