BEDFORD — The month of May has been designated as National Barbecue Month, and in celebration of this love of backyard grilling, the Wine'ing Butcher and chef Scott Ouellette have announced their search to find the best grilling recipes in New Hampshire.
"There's just something about cooking over an open fire that brings people together and sets the mood for fun," said David Moulton, general manager of the Wine'ing Butcher.
The recipe search is open to all amateur and home cooks who can easily submit their recipe online at www.WineingButcherNH.com/bbq. Recipes can be submitted from May 1 through 31. Wine'ing Butcher chefs and well-known chef and owner of Canoe and O Steaks and Seafood, Scott Ouellette, will judge the recipes to determine a first-place winner and two runners-up, with prizes valued over $750.
More important than the prizes will be the opportunity for the winner to have their recipe featured in Ouellette's premier restaurants. The recipes that are gathered from the contest will be featured on Wine'ingButcherNH.com. Each recipe entered will receive a $5 off Wine'ing Butcher coupon that can be printed out and used at any of the four Wine'ing Butcher locations.
The formal definition of barbecue is a method and apparatus for cooking food, often meat, with the heat and hot gases of a fire, smoking wood or hot coals of charcoal and may include applications of a marinade, spice rub or basting sauce to the meat. Barbecue is a unique way of cooking and can differ depending on the culture, ingredients and method. Moulton said, "We can't wait to see the recipes that come in and plan to have lots of fun trying and sharing them with New Hampshire!"
The Wine'ing Butcher Gourmet Market has four locations in New Hampshire: Bedford, Pembroke, Meredith and Gilford. For information, visit www.wineingbutchernh.com or call 488-5519.
