Dream job pays $5,000 a week to travel the country eating BBQ
Plenty of people out there would love the chance to eat delicious food for a living. I know I would. It certainly sounds like a career that would make those who have a large appetite happy. However, now Reynolds Wrap GCO is offering the chance for one lucky person to travel the USA eating the finest BBQ ribs available.
The two-week position pays you $10,000 to take on the job of Chief Grilling Officer, scouring America for the best ribs money can buy. What's more, you're allowed to bring a buddy along for the ride, and the travel expenses and lodging for you and your guest will all be covered.
Last year's Chief Grilling Officer was Kari Blanks, whom Reynolds Wrap paid to embark on a tastebud sensation of a journey, through Nashville, Memphis, Kansas City, Dallas, and Austin. She documented the experience for posterity, which you can read at their CGO page, so if you're interested then give it a read and see if it sounds like hard work (spoiler alert: it doesn't).
To get the job yourself, send away a photo of you grilling your favourite BBQ recipe, along with an additional 100 words about why you're the person for the position to careers@. The deadline is midnight on June 19, so if you want to take on this role then get typing right away!
