WORTHINGTON, OH -- For grilling enthusiasts, nothing beats summer's backyard barbecues with the perfect steak, chop or burger hot off the grill, complete with sear marks and juicy, mouth-watering flavor, and served with an ice cold drink.
This summer, one lucky Ohioan will win the Ultimate Backyard BBQ for up to 24 of their family and friends as part of the Ohio Soybean Council's (OSC) "Get Grilling, Ohio" sweepstakes. The sweepstakes winner, to be named prior to Labor Day, will be awarded an Ultimate Backyard BBQ prize package worth more than $2,500, which includes:

As a primary source of protein for livestock in Ohio, soybeans and soybean farmers are an important step of the process in getting meat from the farm to the store to the grill. Soybeans are fed to a variety of animals, including cattle, swine, sheep and poultry. Ohio soybean farmers are invested in helping produce healthy, great-tasting meat for grilling.
To enter for the chance to win the Ultimate Backyard BBQ, Ohio residents can fill out the entry form at getgrillingohio.com. The entry deadline is Aug. 29 at 11:59 p.m. The winner will be announced Sept. 1.
