    The Regis and Kelly show have been having a BBQ competition to be decided by internet voting. My friend is one of the finalists. She's the one with the grilled corn. If you've got a moment, please vote for her. Thanks.

    Did my part. That corn sounds yummy!!

    But...

    A $6000 grill??? What could possibly make a grill cost that much??

    I hope your friend has $1200 handy to pay the taxes on that thing!

    Complete Outdoor Cooking Center [​IMG] Add in the accessories and you're close to $8,000.

    I've even seen grills with stereo systems in them. I forget what it was, but it was in Maxim.

    Jessica was going to get my vote anyways. We veggies need our grills. $6,000 BBQ grill? Sounds like heaven. When it comes to grills, there's no such thing as overkill. Hey! that rhymed.

    You have to pay Federal income tax on any prize like this you win. I think they want 20% up front.

    There was an article last week on Yahoo! that talked about BBQ's that went right up to $9,000. Crazy money for grilling food.

    I voted for your friend.

    I worked at a hardware store part time. We used to deliver 20k barbques to some of the Jaguars players. It was sick.....That I couldn't have one....[​IMG]



    I voted for her too....If she wins she has to invite us all for a cookout and try the recipe.

    Bad news, folks, the chicken recipe won the competition. Thanks for all your help. She'll have to be happy with the $500 of Omaha Steaks and the trip to NYC that she already won for being one of the finalists.
