To make the arrival of grilling season even more exciting, Cabot is celebrating with a spectacular sweepstakes just in time for summer grilling. One lucky winner will be chosen at random for a Grand Prize worth more than $1,800!

Cabot's Grilling Sweepstakes

Our friends at The Big Green EGG will send the winner their most popular model – THE LARGE BIG EGG and a selection of accessories. This beloved grill, the star of the BGE line, is a favorite to handle the cooking needs of most families and gatherings of friends. It accommodates all EGGcessories for baking, roasting or smoking – and it’s versatile enough for weekend cookouts or pizza parties, large enough for eight steaks at once, and efficient enough for an impromptu meatloaf for two!

For more than 100 years Lodge Cookware has been the cast iron cookware choice of chefs and home cooks around the country. With love and care a well-seasoned Lodge pan can become a family heirloom as well as a kitchen superstar. The lucky Cabot sweepstakes winner will be presented with a $350 LODGE COOKWARE GIFT CARD, so they can pick the perfect Lodge pan or pot for their kitchen needs.

Rounding out this exciting prize package, the winner will receive A ONE-YEAR’S SUPPLY of The World’s Best Cheddar, courtesy of the 1200 farm families who own Cabot.

To enter, go to and fill out the entry form, one entry per person. The contest runs from May 14 – May 31. The winner will be chosen on June 1 and notified by email.

Because we’re so excited about grilling season and to get you in the mood for great grilled food, we’ve created two great new grilling recipes using The Big Green Egg and Lodge Cookware.

The first is a new take on a classic pizza recipe. Our Skillet Pizza Margarita with Cabot Alpine Cheddar & Fresh Basil combines the fresh tastes of an Italian garden with great grill flavor – the perfect party pizza or just right for a family dinner.

Next up is our new recipe for Philly Cheesesteak Smothered Burgers –delicious patties of beef loaded into a Lodge skillet and cooked to perfection on a Big Green Egg, smothered in onions, peppers, and Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar. Now that’s burger perfection.
