Calling All Cooks: Enter the Holmes Sweet Holmes Recipe Challenge – Dallas v. Houston

Everything is bigger and better in Texas – appetites and imaginations included! That’s why we’re challenging two of Texas’ biggest and hungriest cities – Dallas and Houston – to see whose recipes reign supreme.

We’re looking for original recipes that are creative and flavorful, and feature one of Holmes Smokehouse’s products. Submit your best dish(es) in one of our four competition categories: Appetizers, Entrées, Bacon!, and Daring Desserts – for a chance to win a Texas-sized prize package fit for a culinary king or queen. Our grand prize winner will be given a year’s worth of Holmes Smokehouse products, a new grill from Texas Original Pits, and packages from The International Culinary Schools at Art Institutes, The Food and Wine Foundation of Texas, Canyon Foods, and Cinco Vodka. And to top it all off, the winner will receive the first ever at-home visit from the Smokehouse Express, Holmes’ mobile smokehouse, to help throw the ultimate backyard cook out!

The contest closes on August 22, 2011. Check out the rules, regulations and entry requirements listed on this blog, or the notes on our Facebook page, and send your best recipes to

We can’t wait to hear what you’ve got cooking!
