Why? The Prophets of Smoked Meat Giveaway!

***A bit of blogkeeping: Congratulations to danielle (Comment #14), randomly-selected winner of 2 VIP Big Kahuna tickets to Shoes and Clothes for Kids’ Luau on the Lake. Please check your email and respond by the end of the day or a new winner will be chosen. If you didn’t win, you can still purchase tickets by clicking here.***

As I may have mentioned here on the blog, Matthew was born in Texas. In fact, a lot of his family live down there and we’re going for a wedding/vacation/visit in September. So, you can imagine how exciting a dinner and book signing with Daniel Vaughn, author of “The Prophet of Smoked Meat: A Journey Through Texas Barbeque” would be.


Unfortunately, I cannot attend (cue sad trombone). I imagine the Texas family will disown me. But I digress. The dinner and book signing are taking place on Tuesday, June 18 at The Greenhouse Tavern. Chef Brian Goodman and author Daniel Vaughn will collaborate on a feast that includes GHT’s BBQ half pig face, whole roasted Ohio CAB’s head, and more.

The event starts with cocktails at 6pm, followed by dinner at 7pm. Tickets are $85 and can be purchased online. Or you can enter to win 2 tickets right here (along with the love and admiration of my Texas family)!

Here’s how to enter: you can do one, two, or all three entries, just leave a SEPARATE blog comment for each entry.

1. Tell me your favorite style of BBQ (Texas, Carolina, etc.).

2. Follow @thegreenhouse and @WhyCLE on Twitter and leave a comment letting me know you’re following both.

3. Tweet the following phrase and leave a comment letting me know you tweeted:

Hey @WhyCLE, send me to eat BBQ with @thegreenhouse, @chefgoodguy, and @bbqsnob! http://wp.me/p1fb9r-1xE

You can tweet once per day for additional entries, just leave a separate comment each time you tweet.

The giveaway will close on Sunday, June 16 at 11:59pm and the winner will be announced the following day. Good luck!

***Disclosure: I was asked by The Greenhouse Tavern to help promote this dinner. In exchange, I was offered 2 tickets for myself and 2 tickets to give away. Due to scheduling conflicts, I sadly declined my tickets. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.***

    My favorite BBQ is “any”. I love ribs that can stand on their own without sauce. You know they’re good then.

    I inhale BBQ & I follow both GHT & you! I once had a dream that I ate a whole pig, when I woke up my pillow was gone.

    I used to be a huge fan of Kansas City Style BBQ but recently have move to more of a Memphis style since it seems to have a little more bite and is not quite as sweet.

    Fan of all kinds of BBQ, although partial to Carolina style with hot pepper vinegar and red slaw. Big fan of Chef Goodman.
