Tailgaters Get Fired up over Honey of a Contest.

LONGMONT, Colo. -- Tony "The Goose" Siragusa to Select Best Tailgate Recipe in National Honey Board Contest

Ribs dripping in honey barbecue wings slathered in sweet and spicy goodness...juicy brats with honey garlic glaze. These are just a few good eats that can be found a tailgate party. Now, tailgaters can earn big prizes for their favorite tailgate recipe in the National Honey Board's "Honey of a BBQ Tailgating Contest."

Beginning today through December 1, tailgaters can go to to enter their favorite tailgate recipe in the "Honey of a BBQ Tailgating Contest." Recipes can be anything from ribs and wings to salads and sauces. The only requirement is that the recipe uses 1/3 cup of 100% pure honey.

FOX analyst and former football player Tony Siragusa will select the grand prize winner, who will receive $1,000, and second and third prize will receive Honey of a BBQ grilling kits.

"I spent 12 years smelling all the great tailgating going on prior to our games," said Tony Siragusa. "Now I'm making up for lost time and I'm loving this contest since it's all about putting pure honey into your own barbecue sauce or marinade - and great grilling makes for great tailgating."

Tailgaters are as passionate about their food as they are their team. In fact, nearly half of all tailgaters set up shop in the parking lots of their favorite teams 6-10 times per season and 50 percent roll into the parking lot 3-4 hours before a game(1), with plenty of time to grill up their secret recipes before the game.

Last year's Honey of a BBQ Tailgating Contest had more than 2,000 recipe entries and the grand prize winning recipe of Sweet Onion Kielbasa is available now at

Tailgaters can enter online at or mail their recipe, name, address, phone number, and the name of their favorite professional football team to: "Honey of a BBQ Tailgating Contest" 400 Capitol Mall, Suite 2640, Sacramento, CA 95814.

The contest is running now, with entries due December 1, 2005. The official contest rules, along with other recipe ideas and tips, are available at
