…as we tick, tock, tick, tock our way into own version of Super Tuesday, I implore you to ‘Stay the course’ and ‘Remember the Alamo’, as we ‘Keep Country First’ to ‘Believe in America’ and when ‘Morning again in America’ comes around on July 3rd, 2012, REMEMBER TO VOTE!
Huge thank you to all who have been voting daily and regularly, and huge thank you to those who have taken the time (the reported record is 5 seconds) to cast a vote for my entry in the 2012 Johnsonville “No Ordinary Burger Contest”. The voting officially ends at 11:59:59pm on July 3rd, so PLEASE cast your vote, or cast another vote, today.
As many of you know, I am attempting to break all sorts of records with this election of Fan Favorite. If successful in making the Fan Favorite Finals, I will be the first person in history to make it on Fan Votes in 2 consecutive years, will be the first person from Illinois to make it in 2 consecutive years, and if I can manage to pull off a win at the finals, could be the first person in history to win this contest in back-to-back years!! Granted, this contest is only 2 years old, but it’s still fun to think of it as ‘First Person in History’ terms. 🙂
HUGE thank you to Susan Gluck, Ms. Sharon Woodward, David Quinn, Joannie Minor, and everyone else who have been voting faithfully and daily for the last 6 weeks. And a tremendous thank you to Jeremiah & Sheryl Morning Show on 88.7 The Cross for your support and help!
(Back to meaningless political cliches)
A vote for my burger is a vote for a happy world!
Thank you for your support!!
With the announcement that my 2011 “No Ordinary Burger” Contest winning recipe and picture is being unleashed on North America around July 4th of this year, I am already deep in the trenches of the 2012 “No Ordinary Burger” Contest.
Last year’s contest was an incredible experience that would not have happened if not for my family and friends who took 30 seconds out of their life to vote for my recipe. Now that this year’s contest is in full swing, I WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR HELP. While I have posted MANY times that it only takes 30 seconds to vote for my burger (once you click any of the links in this post), a friend of mine pointed out that it only took him 18 seconds! Can you beat his record?? Let’s see! Click any of the links in this post, cast your vote for my “Ay Caramba! Chorizo Burger“, then come back here and let us know how long it took. C’mon…it’ll be fun!
Regardless if you post your time or not, I do truly appreciate your time, efforts, and votes in this contest. I am forever grateful that you even took the time to read this entry.
Now…on your marks…get set…VOTE! http://burgercontest.johnsonville.com/Vote/ViewRecipes?entrantID=465
Many of my friends already know that I was lucky enough to win the 2011 Johnsonville “No Ordinary Burger” cooking contest, co-sponsored by the National Pork Board and Walmart, last October.
Now, to stretch my 15 minutes another minute and a half, I will have my mug and winning recipe plastered all over the packaging for Johnsonville’s Brat Burgers this summer. It’s pretty exciting to think that I’ll be scaring people all over North America when they pick up a box of brat burgers and turn it over to see what’s on the other side.
Anyway, I just did a photo shoot with the talented Debbie Jourdan, of Jourdan Photography, this week and sent the pictures in for the keen decision makers at Johnsonville to decide which picture they would like to use for the promotion. Here are the pictures submitted. What do you think?
And here’s one that probably WON’T make the product placement award…
Here are a few pictures from the whole experience.
My burger is the one on the right…
What a cool grill to cook on for the Finals!
More than 4,000 entries competed for just 6 spots. Here are the finalists for the 2011 Pork Be Inspired “No Ordinary Burger” Contest, co-sponsored by Johnsonville Sausage and Walmart…
What an awesome experience!
