Great American Cookout Hits the Trails

Tour features cooking demos and tastings from professional barbecue grill masters at seventy locations in 2014.

NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Time to trade those snow shovels for grilling tongs – it's out with old man winter and in with cookout season! The Kansas City Barbeque Society's own Great American Cookout is loaded up and ready to head out on its eighth tour across the nation, bringing cooking demonstrations and delicious samples conveniently to 20 of the biggest contests and festivals in the country, plus 50 favorite retail locations across the United States.

The Great American Cookout, presented by Big Green Egg®, Master of Mixes-Bloody Mary, Reser's Fine Foods®, Budweiser™ Genuine Sauces, Tyson®, BBQ Guru and Virginia Brand®, is back on the road, ready to share tasty recipes and give professional cooking tips to help bring your backyard grilling skills up to par with the pros.

"Regions, states and even cities will vary in favorite pastimes, but there seems to be a commonality found in sharing great food with friends and family," said Carolyn Wells, executive director of the Kansas City Barbeque Society. "The Great American Cookout is designed to enhance those moments."

Join tour hosts and barbecue celebrities, Mike and Christine Peters, as they bring the tour to its first stop on April 18 at the High on the Hog Festival in Winchester, Tenn.

Win Big in 2014! 
Attending a Great American Cookout event will get you the know-how, but you're going to need top of the line grill gear to accompany your skills. This year, the Great American Cookout will be hosting the BBQ Getaway Giveaway sweepstakes.  The giveaways are centered on America's favorite grilling holidays: Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day. The end-of-year winner will be the recipient of a BBQ Celebrity Bash in their backyard, complete with food, entertainment and an appearance by a celebrity barbecue personality. Holiday giveaways throughout the year will include a Big Green Egg cooker, plus products and grilling accessories from tour partners. It's almost too good to believe!
