Hello BBQ & Grilling Fans -
We're working on a new Food Network special, 4 hours which will be devoted to grilling. So if you have a question about grilling that you'd like a Food Network chef to answer, now is your chance! Not only could your question be answered on-air, but it's possible we'll fly you to be in the audience while taping the special. We're considering people from across the U.S. so feel free to send this email to family & friends.

"Dear Food Network"
Learn to cook from your favorite FOOD NETWORK star!
Inspired by letters from fans, Food Network is launching a new series, Dear Food Network, which will feature top chefs answering your cooking concerns, problems and challenges. We're looking for Thanksgiving, winter holiday and grilling cooking issues--specifically Thanksgiving Day disasters, turkey issues, desserts and what to do with the leftovers.
If you've ever dreamed of having your favorite Food Network star help you out in the kitchen, we want to hear from you!
To be considered, make a 1-2 minute video telling us why you want a chance to have your questions answered and problems solved by a Food Network chef. Tell us your story—have you been making the same pie for 10 years and your family is over it, or is it so bad that friends have stopped coming over for celebratory dinners? Or maybe you just need some new inspiring ideas on how to wow your family.
On your casting tape tell us about yourself (where you live & how old you are, etc.), and your problem/question for Food Network. Be sure to include a humorous testimonial by a friend or family member! "She can't seem to remember which side to cook a turkey on, or her mashed potatoes are always so lumpy" goes a long way!
Upload your video to www.foodnetwork.com/dearfn or send your DVD or VHS video submissions no later than July 14th to:
