Reynolds Wrap will pay someone $5,000 a week to travel across America eating ribs

Grill masters and backyard barbecue bosses, listen up.

Reynolds Wrap has announced it is searching for its next Chief Grilling Officer (CGO) — and the company is offering racks on racks for one lucky applicant who can sear the rest of the competition.

So, what exactly does the finger-lickin'-good position entail?

"As CGO, you won’t need a comfy corner office because for two weeks in August, you’ll be busy tasting and savoring BBQ ribs from some of the top BBQ rib cities in the country," the company says in a listing for the temporary position. "Along the way, you’ll share tips, grilling techniques and photos on the Reynolds Kitchens® website and social channels, so grilling enthusiasts at home can make drool-worthy BBQ ribs on their own. You’ll also receive a $10,000 stipend along with pre-paid travel and lodging for you and a (very lucky) guest!"

Chefs who believe they've got the marks to qualify for the role are encouraged to submit a photo of themselves grilling their favorite recipe along with 100 words on why they're the best fit to careers@ReynoldsWrapCGO.com.

"If you don’t mind being paid to taste test some of the most delicious BBQ ribs across the country, posting envy-inducing pictures of your food and falling asleep every night dreaming about your next rack of ribs, then you could have what it takes to be the next Reynolds Wrap® Chief Grilling Officer," the company states. 

But don't burn your chances at a sweet (and savory) victory — the deadline to submit applications is Wednesday, June 19 at 12 AM CT.
