I received an email today. I checked it out and it is a legitimate request. As a matter of fact several of my competition BBQ friends have received the same letter. Here it is..
It's official. Our new format features FOUR different pit masters competing in EACH episode. We are looking to augment our cast from last season and welcome all interested cooks to throw their aprons in the ring. Send your audition tape/DVD, selling us on why you should be picked to compete against the best. To: Lindsay Freed c/o Original Media, 38 E. 29th St., 8th FL, NY, NY 10016. Or, you can email a file of your audition to email@example.com. Send your ?'s there as well. Shooting schedule April 30th - June26th. Good luck and see you on the trail!
I wonder if I should send in a DVD or file. I'm a low level player on the contest circuit. Granted, we've done fairly well considering we only do 7 or 8 contests a year. I've competed in some of the same contests as Johnny Trigg. As a matter of fact he and Rod Gray (Pellet Envy 2009 KCBS Team of the Year) taught me a few things. I've competed against both of them.
Pat (the Dudette) is leaving it up to me to decide. Pat has stood behind me in every stupid thing I've tried since we got married many years ago.
If I decide to do it, what do I put in the audition video? Cooking? Just a bit about our team? What?
P.S. Yes Don, I'll live.
