Isn’t this a fun week of giveaways?
Welcome to Day 4 of nwafoodie’s annual anniversary week of giveaways! We are more than half way through a week of daily giveaways, as my way of thanking you for being my blogfriend. I think you will enjoy Day 1, 2, and 3, if you haven't already checked them out.
Today’s gift comes courtesy of John McLemore, chef and author of two smoking, frying, and grilling cookbooks titled, “DADGUM That’s Good” and DADGUM That’s Good, Too!” You might think that cookbooks with a phrase like that would be, well, no-so-foodie. Wrong you would be! After his team contacted me about his cookbook, I immediately looked into it and realized it is just the missing cookbook I need on my bookshelf. I asked for extras because it just might be yours, too. Are you into grilling? How does Balsamic Rib-Eye Steak Sandwiches sound? Or Grilled Peaches and Plums with Honey-Citrus? Are you into frying? Thanksgiving is just around the corner and you KNOW this is the year you are going to do that deep-fried turkey. How about a recipe called Garlic and Herb Deep-Fried Turkey? Are you into smoking? THIS is going to be my new Fall/Winter food technique! How awesome does Smoked Chicken Tenders, Smoked Mac & Cheese sound? There is even a recipe from Arkansas own Governor Mike Huckabee’s Smoked Tenderloin. If you are on Pinterest, John has pinned a bounty of recipes and ideas on his boards.
Two (2) lucky someone’s will be receiving a signed “DADGUM That’s Good, Too!” cookbooks. I asked him to sign something nice, just for you.
Contest ends next Saturday, September 15th at midnight (CDT). I will pick a winner via randomizer.

Full Disclosure: I received my very own copy of this cookbook (and yes, it is awesome!!) and two Arkansas Razorback lapper trays for tail-gaiting (I gave these to my friend Rachel's son, Colton, who is a crazy hog fan). But wait, there's more... I even got a special treat when he was in town for the Cabella's grand opening day. I got treated to breakfast with him and Alicia McGlamory, Marketing Guru for Masterbuilt (John is CEO). They were so completely personable, that I am now a loyal fan to their company and the grilling, smoking, frying products they make. Okay, maybe not frying (that's just not who I am) but smoking - yes! John and Alicia surprised me with a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker. Let's just say that I plan to share with you exactly how easy it is to smoke (and yes, use his recipes as a guide and create my own, of course). Now, if I could just finish remodeling my home and move in so I can get started. Stay tuned...
