The greatest throw down of the year is just around the corner and we want you to join us on the field of battle! No, we’re not talking about the first presidential debate of 2012 held at the University of Denver on October 3. We’re talking something even bigger! We’re talking about the Food Network not only covering the debate, but also taking on the one and only DU Grilling Society. This is no ordinary, run-of-the-mill, backyard weenie roast. This is a grillin’ smack-down!

This colossal, one-of-a-kind media event, barbeque blockbuster is the pre-grill-out to DU hosting the first presidential debate. Colorado will be the center of the media universe with special programs and events that will attract huge crowds. The Food Network has an unprecedented opportunity to cover behind the scenes of what is sure to be the most watched presidential debate in history. Show us your true red, white and blue! Grab your favorite spatula, steak fork, and smoke shifter and come prepared to bring out your best. “Take another shot of courage,” my friend, cuz’ you’re gonna need it.

Your competition awaits…
