Great Canadian Chicken BBQ Contest

Every July 1st, Chicken Farmers of Canada hold the “Great Canadian Chicken BBQ” in Ottawa’s Major’s Hill Park.

We hold the BBQ each year as part of our sponsorship of Canada Day in the nation’s capital. This is our 18th year as national sponsor.

This year is no different, but we wanted to bring you in on the action as well even if you can’t make it to Ottawa for the big party. So, we’re holding a little contest with a bit of a BBQ theme.

To enter, all you need to do is head to our website on this page, and enter your favourite BBQ sauce or spice rub recipe. We’ll randomly draw a winner from all those who enter, and the winner will receive a $500 gift certificate to Chapters-Indigo for the ultimate cookbook shopping spree!

But wait! There’s more! If you’re a food blogger or a Twitter user, spread the word about the contest and if you refer the most people to the contest, you’ll also receive a grand prize for yourself.

The deadline for entry is noon on July 1, 2010, and the full rules and regulations are here.

We can’t wait to read (and try) your spice rub and BBQ sauce concoctions, so what are you waiting for?

Enter now!
