New Contest – Meyer’s Elgin Smokehouse BBQ Giveaway

I was finally able to visit Meyer’s Elgin Smokehouse in Elgin, Texas about a month ago and equally lucky to meet Gregg Meyer there for a private tour and a great meal. You really get the sense of what a tremendous operation they have going on when you visit, but more importantly you see the great pride they take in putting out consistent quality BBQ. We collaborated on a very well received contest a while back and the two of us have been itching to get another one going.

For the Meyer’s Elgin Smokehouse / Kevin’s BBQ Joints giveaway there will be THREE different winners who each get their own unique prize. Here are the prize packages:

The first person drawn will receive the BBQ Cookout (which feeds 10-12 people)
1 smoked brisket (4-6 lbs.)
3 lbs. beef sausage
16 oz. bottle Meyer’s Original BBQ Sauce
6 oz. bottle Meyer’s Bean Seasoning
7 oz. bottle Meyer’s BBQ Rub.

The second person drawn will receive the 5 Lbs. of Meyer’s Famous Sausage:
Choices: Original, Garlic, Hot, Beef, Sage, Tejano, Original summer sausage and Jalapeno summer sausage.

Third person drawn will receive a rack of their top secret St. Louis pork ribs:

As a BONUS Gregg is throwing in some bottles of their Meyer’s Smokehouse Seasoning with each winner’s loot.

    Comment by Carol B — November 28, 2011 @ 2:34 pm

  11. Brisket & sausage are my favorite. In Texas, you have to do both meats plus ribs great, or you won’t last. Meyer’s uses a proprietary method to prepare their brisket, and their sausage is second to none. Elgin is a sausage town, and Meyers is king!

    Comment by RA Eckart — November 28, 2011 @ 3:27 pm

  12. OMG! Awesome contest!!!! I am an equal opportunity meat eater. I love all grilled, smoked, & barbecued meat no matter what it is : )

  17. Hmmm… If is cooked low and slow over a a fire I like it. My favorite would have to be ribs and brisket with pulled pork coming in a close third. Meyers sausage though is a treat.

    Comment by Jacque Hubbard — November 29, 2011 @ 11:13 am

  23. My absolute favorite cut of meat would have to be the bone in rib roast. Prime or Choice I am not fussy, I will destroy me some beef when prepared properly! (Of course properly done is to 120* internal with a bit of hickory for that awesome bbq flavor and my favorite rub at the moment is the Oakridge BBQ Santa Maria rub)

    Comment by Mike Algren — November 30, 2011 @ 2:22 pm

    Comment by Anson — November 30, 2011 @ 6:06 pm

    Comment by Sean — December 1, 2011 @ 10:27 am

  41. Pulled pork…it’s what’s for dinner!

    Comment by Shannon Schulte — December 1, 2011 @ 11:02 am

  42. I keep returning to this blog just to see the Meyer’s pictures. The ribs look amazing.

    Comment by Derek — December 1, 2011 @ 1:12 pm

  43. Spare ribs, still. But I’ll go for sausage or brisket anytime.

    Comment by Anson — December 1, 2011 @ 5:06 pm

  44. My favorite BBQ meat has to be pulled pork… or ribs… or maybe an awesome Texas style brisket. I also love smoked poultry – and smoked sausages are never turned down at my house. So, I guess you could say, as long as it has been on a smoker, its my favorite. Heck, even BBQ’d eggs in the morning are awesome!

    Comment by Matt Walsh — December 1, 2011 @ 7:07 pm

  45. Wow! I don’t eat enough briskit. Would love that fat juicy one. But ribs are my fave……

  52. I have been fortunate enough to have the brisket and sausage from Meyer’s, and it is excellent! Right on point for a place whose motto is “Barbecueous Continuous”. I’d actually like to try out their top secret ribs!
