NRI Wednesday: BBQ Gift Contest


Win a barbecue gift ensemble for your favorite person (you can be your favorite person :)). Gift pack includes a signed copy of She-Smoke: A Backyard Barbecue Book, Smokin' Pete's BBQ Spice Rub, and a bar of barbecue soap. Barbecue soap, you ask? Yep. I make barbecue soap - it's a regular olive oil based soap scented with hickory and sandalwood. The packaging says, "For the manly man that wants to smell fresh out of the smoker." I know, I of all people shouldn't exclude women, but it's our best selling stocking stuffer at Smokin' Pete's.

The package will be gift wrapped and mailed to the person of your choice, as long as the winner gets me an address immediately upon winning. Contest runs now through December 14.

To enter: Post a comment on this blog with your name and whether you've been naughty or nice this year. I'll put all names in the hat. (I don't discriminate like Santa - even the naughty ones get to enter the contest). Enter no later than midnight on December 14. One entry per person. I will announce the winner on December 15.


  1. Hi Julie,

    I have been totally nice this year...You have been on my show two times and if I win this cool prize package I will get you on a 3rd time. So just tell everyone that the drawing was "random" and send me the prizes RIGHT NOW!

    All the best,


  2. Hola...

    I have been both naughty and nice this year...

  3. They'll never know, Greg! Let it be said that if Greg Rempe wins, it really really was random. Now I'll have to get a witness for this contest...

  4. Hi Julie,
    Great contest you got going here.
    For the most part, I've been nice this year.
    As for the naughty times, ... I usually can't remember them, or deny them later. ;)

  6. I think I've been mostly nice this year. This was my first true BBQ season, starting with a WSM 18.5

    Love the soap idea!

  7. BBQ Soap...How sweet is that? And I hate to admit..I have been far to nice this year. 2010 must change.

  8. Hey Julie,
    I'm intrigued by your bbq soap. If I don't win this drawing, how do I buy some online? I doubt I can get down to Ballard before Christmas. I think I've been kinda nice this year.

  9. Cheryl Suzy. We aren't yet set up for on-line shopping, but you can order via e-mail:

  10. Does naughty in my head count??? Definitely that...

  11. Hi Julie,
    I just bought your book for Daniel for the first night of Hanukah (we'll call it we-smoke) We can't wait to make the smoked cornish game hens with polenta stuffing! Yum. We've been very nice....

  12. Thank you everyone for entering. We are putting the names in the hat right now and will announce the winner soon....

  13. Yum, BBQ soap - what a great idea! I think I'll have to get some for the BBQ folks in my life. Congrats to the winner!
