Burger-eating contest ups the ante, offers $2,500 to first place winner at Smokey Bones

Let the “hunger games” begin! Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill, the restaurant and bar specializing in good food, good drinks and good times, will once again give competitive eaters the opportunity to devour a ‘build-a-burger’ masterpiece for a $2,500 cash prize during its second annual BURGER BATTLE eating contest on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

BURGER BATTLE contestants can leave their hunting and gathering skills behind as their eating skills are what will allow them to survive this game. For the first two rounds, competitors will be provided a Smokey Bones’ build-a-burger menu where they will need to strategically create a half-pound burger (choice of a brisket or pulled pork topping in addition to a cold topping, hot topping, cheese and specialty sauce) to out eat the contenders. Those that consume their creations in the fastest amount of time during their heat will advance to the next round.

The “final ten” will compete in the championship “Burger Blitz.” During this final round, opponents will be timed as they eat a one-pound build-a-burger and the fastest time secures victory both regionally and nationally.

The first place eater in each restaurant location will receive a $200 gift certificate for Smokey Bones, as well as the opportunity to submit their time against each of the fastest times throughout the 66 locations. The grand prize winner, the competitor with the overall fastest time, will collect $2,500 and earn bragging rights as the Smokey Bones’ 2012 BURGER BATTLE champion. All participants who do not win a first place prize for each location will receive a $5 bounce back card for use after the contest or during their next visit.

BURGER BATTLE is accepting 40 entries at each location and all eaters must be at least 18 years old to participate. Applications are available at all Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill locations throughout the United States or via email at SmokeyBones@taraink.com.

The fee for participation is $10, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to Homes for Our Troops, a non-profit organization dedicated to building specially adapted homes for severely injured veterans.
