Think you have what it takes to kick ass with charcoal, gas or wood? Do your neighbors crash your backyard patio party when they sniff the char of a ribeye wafting through the 'hood? Do you know the difference between direct and indirect grilling, the intricacies of smoking yakitori, how to grill tofu?
Yeah? Awesome. Because VISTA TV, a local television station on Comcast channel 19 is searching for grill jockeys to strut their groove on season two of GRILL vs. GRILL, a judged reality cooking show that's hosted by Howie Drummond from Alice 105.9 (you may recall that Drummond himself was a contestant on season seven of the Food Network's Food Network Star -- but, alas, he didn't get very far).
In any case, the casting producers of the cook-off, wherein each episode results in a victor that moves on to the ultimate GRILL vs. GRILL challenge to compete for the title of "Champion GRILL vs. GRILL," is searching for Denver grill battlers, and the winner of the whole shebang struts away with some cool backyard grilling toys. "Female contestants are especially encouraged to apply," says casting producer Megan Golliday, adding that it's "a fun experience and great opportunity."
If you want to compete in front of the judges, some of whom are Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche stars, you've got to register (and create a video) at www.vistatvdenver.com/grill-vs-grill-registration. You can view footage of the first season of GRILL vs. GRILL below.
