I want to do this!!

Alas, with a six-week-old... and a two-year-old... and a four-year-old... and a wonderful wife that needs a break, I can't.

I e-mailed Amanda. It looks like they’ll pay $125 for time (11:00-2:00) plus reimburse you for up to $75 of meat. They’re looking for upbeat, positive people. Sounds like a fun experience, if not lucrative.

$75 is not that much meat to demo over three hours of cooking. What would you demo?

Burgers? Chicken? Maybe drumsticks and thighs.

If I was to do it I’d touch bases with the store, see if they’d comp stuff like rubs, bbq sauce, mustards so that they could sell it while being demo-ed. That way all $75 goes towards meat. I know a lot of Ace/Truevalue locations in my area have a pretty nice sized sauce/rub selection.

Did anyone else do one of these? I did one in Auburn, CA on Saturday. The owner was awesome and supplied a few tri tips for me to cook. My $75 dollar budget went to polish dogs and Louisiana hot links that I served up with butter caramalized onions in my cast iron. They also provided traeger sauces, rubs, and two pretty cool traeger pellet grills to cook on. I had never cooked on a traeger before, and while i didn’t find it particularly fun to cook on, it was super easy. It was a fun event, I served up about 150 people!

I participated at the Palm Coast location here in Florida.  It was a really fun event complimented by a beautiful sunny day.  It was my first time doing anything like this and now that I’ve faced my fears, I wouldn’t hesitate to do it again. 

I stretched their $75 budget as far as possible by shopping at restaurant depot.  I purchased 17lbs of pork tenderloins, 20lbs of wings, and 3 pineapples.  I went $3 over the limit, but they reimbursed the full amount.  They wanted to use their own rubs and sauces, so I had to season everything on site last minute.

I smoked wings rubbed with Traeger’s chicken rub, on a Kamado Joe and sauced with Traeger’s Apricot.

I grilled tenderloins on the Spirit using Blues Hog rub and Smokey Mountain sauce.  I wasn’t entirely comfortable using an unfamiliar gasser, so the igrill2 assisted with the tenderloins. 

I also did three rotisserie pineapples on the Ranger, and brought the Yachtsman and other accessories for eye-candy. 

Most of the people who came to the event were interested in gassers, and a few interested in Traegers. Several people were interested in the vintage Ranger and Yachtsman so it was cool to share a brief history of kettles with them and anyone that owned a Weber kettle received a WKC sticker and an invitation to join the fun.  (Thank you to JEBIV for overnighting stickers).

I didn’t get any photos myself, but my “helper” snapped a few.

I emailed them and never heard anything back. Maybe I should check my spam folder.

Looks like you guys did an awesome job!  I would have offered to take that wheel barrel off your hands if I was there! Out of all the cool webers  the ranger is my favorite.

Haha, wow looks fantastic! You win ;P. I definitely poked around to see if the local owner was open to the idea of me bringing some Weber’s, but he said he went with the traeger rep so he wanted to keep it to their product. Still super fun!
