AND THE WINNER IS: Bruce Aidell’s “The Great Meat Cookbook” and ThermoWorks Meat Thermometer Giveaway

Win Bruce Aidell’s new and improved “The Great Meat Cookbook”

along with a Thermoworks Meat thermometer. The perfect pairing!


Larry and Mary- see comment below. Larry and Mary are die-hard GrillGrrrl fans and always participate in my contests. I hope you enjoy your new cookbook and meat thermometer- glad you won’t have to use your hands anymore to try to figure out meat temp! :)


If you live on planet earth, then there is a good chance you’ve heard of Bruce Aidells. Bruce is a cookbook author, he started a major chicken sausage company sold Nationally in virtually every grocery store, and he’s been on tv in some form a million times as a cooking expert and author…AND NOW we have his “The Great Meat Book” available to a lucky you. And, Because Bruce Loves his Thermoworks meat thermometers, we’re giving away his favorite meat thermometer to boot. This is a pretty kick ass giveaway if I do say so myself.

This is a great time for a new cookbook if you are like me and are always trying to scheme up alternatives to Turkey Dinner for Thanksgiving. I have nothing against Turkey, but sometimes it’s just nice to push the envelope when you have a big crowd and just wow them with something different. This would be the perfect cookbook for that as it solely focused on MEAT, not poultry. And for those of you who need to buy this cookbook right now, you can get a signed copy from Thermowork’s website.

Here is what Bruce Aidell’s has to say about his meat thermometer from Thermoworks in his book (makers of the SuperFast Thermapen).

“ThermoWorks Original Cooking Thermometer/Timer: The heatproof cable allows you to leave this digital continuous-read thermometer in the meat throughout the cook. Holds up well and functions reliably.”

How to Win:

Leave a comment on my site, like my facebook page, and tweet this contest. And, usually if you are funny in your comment that doesn’t hurt either. Winner will be announced on Friday, October 5th. Thanks for taking part in my giveaway!

    Aidells sausages have been a staple on my grill for many years, the wonderful flavor combinations available are simply delicious. One of the few ausages I can get my boys to eat and obviously the dog is a big fan when one pops out of my grill tongs and rolls in her direction – there is no 5 second rule in our home as my chocolate lab “Bailey” can react and devour in under 2 seconds flat.

    Just the photo on the cover of this book has me drooling … and I should state, sadly, that my last meat thermometer was destroyed by a wayward soccer ball.

    Blasting on Facebook and Twitter next!

    Glenn and his wife were working in their garden one day when Glenn looks over at his wife and says,

    “Your butt is getting really big. I bet your butt is bigger than the barbecue.”

    With that he proceeded to get a measuring tape and measured the grill and then went over to where his wife was working and measured his wifes bottom.

    “Yes, I was right, your butt is two inches wider than the barbecue!”

    The wife chose to ignore the husband.

    Later that night in bed Glenn was feeling a little frisky.
    He makes some advances towards his wife who completely brushes him off.

    “Whats wrong?” he asks.

    She answers, “Do you really think Im going to fire up this big-ass grill for one little weenie

    I found the joke here: http://www.killsometime.com/jokes/4947/BBQ

    I really need a new meat thermometer, I hate mine. I also like your facebook page and tweeted.

    A great desire to bite into that wonderful roast on the cover! I’m going to share on FB, thanks for the giveaway and have a good day!

    I’ve become a fan of the Thermoworks probe thermometers and may have a half dozen of them lined up on my cooker on BBQ day. Sounds like the book meat cooks should have.

    Heather, that was a great joke! Love it!! Thanks for participating. :) As I said, I love a funny comment! ha ha

    ThermoWorks are awesome, use them in BBQ competitions in Texas and they help us get calls in Brisket on a regular basis! Definitely would love to see some recipes in that book to use at competitions for cooks-choice!

    Thank you for always running these contests. I enjoy reading your blog and trying your recipes. They always bring rave reviews.

    I typically post pictures of the things I cook on Facebook and get all kinds of comments.

    One day my brother-in-law gave me two venison roasts to smoke. So seeing that venison is so lean I wrapped a layer of bacon around each of them. After smoking them for 4 hours, dinner was ready.

    My younger son (11 at the time) enjoyed it so much, he asked if we can buy it again. He was shocked when I said “Sorry James, but you can’t buy this, you have to go and kill it yourself!”

    My daughter cried.

    My wife said, I need another cook book like I need another hole in my head. What does she know, I really need this cook book!

    Do you know which local FEMALE culinary celebrity was 1st to put Bruce Aidells’ sausages in her store’s cold-case in San Francisco before he was famous?

    Her name starts with Lenore, ends in Ryan,
    and that’s NO LIE…or should I say, that’s NOLAN…

    Look for her UPCOMING bio this month at InSouthFlorida.com…

  11. Robyn October 3, 2012 at 7:24 am #

    That is so cool. I had no idea. I’ve been wanting to take one of Lenore’s cooking classes. One of these days I will get around to it! :) Thanks for the trivia! Love it!

  12. Robyn October 3, 2012 at 7:25 am #

    Ha ha, don’t we all. I love me some cookbooks!! Can’t get enough!

  13. Chris October 3, 2012 at 11:35 am #

    What a great giveaway, Robyn! That reminds me, I have to get my sister a Thermopen, she just got her first Big Green Egg (yay!)

    So, funny – Do you know the difference between an oral and anal thermometer?

    Nah, I can’t leave that punchline here ;)

  14. Robyn October 3, 2012 at 9:18 pm #

    Thanks Chris. I’m going to email you to get the punchline of that joke!

    Hola, Robyn.
    Liked on FB, as always. We could use a new cookbook for intriguing new ideas, but the thermometer is what we really need. My hand needs a break from being the temp gauge!
    And of course, we love Aidell’s sausage…just made a vat of jambalaya over this past weekend with their Cajun Style Andouille sausage…delicious on day one, incredible leftovers this week!
    Keep tailgating/boatgating/smoking/grilling, Grrrl! :)

    Larry and Mary
