Enter the ‘Manning the Grill’ Contest

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – June 7, 2023 – The start of summer is peak cookout season and with that comes peak ‘dad season’ – a time where the white sneakers and high socks emerge, and dads everywhere are firing up their grills for hot dogs and hamburgers, with a side of Bush’s Baked Beans. To celebrate the season, Bush’s Baked Beans is giving one deserving dad, parent, or mentor a hand – or at least some renowned company – ‘Manning the Grill’ at a one-of-a-kind tailgate experience with Bush’s Beans ambassador Peyton Manning.

“There is nothing like getting families and friends together at a cookout or tailgate, especially before a big game,” said Peyton Manning. “I’m looking forward to breaking out the grilling playbook, showcasing some Bush’s Baked Beans dishes and working with the Bush’s team to put together an unforgettable tailgate experience.”

Now through June 28, those interested in winning Bush’s ‘Manning the Grill’ contest can visit www.bushsmanningthegrill.com to apply to for a chance to attend a tailgate with legendary quarterback, Peyton Manning, and Bush’s Beans at a SEC football game this fall. Bush’s is the Official Beans of the SEC. To apply, fans will explain why they, their dad, mentor, or father-figure could use a hand ‘Manning the Grill’ in a 30-second video. The grand prize winner will receive:

  • Two game tickets and a trip (inclusive of ground transportation, flights and hotel) for the winner and a guest to a college football game in Knoxville, TN – Bush’s hometown.
  • Game tickets and entrance to the tailgate with Peyton for up to 10 additional guests (travel not included).
  • A meet-and-greet with legendary quarterback, bean ambassador, grilling expert and SEC icon, Peyton Manning, during which the winner and Peyton can swap tailgating tips, share their favorite dad jokes and talk beans!
  • A year’s supply of Bush’s Baked Beans – a must-have side for any grilling occasion, Bush’s Secret Family Recipe consists of navy beans slow-cooked with specially cured bacon, fine brown sugar and a signature blend of spices.
  • A Victory 3-Burner Propane Gas Grill with Infrared Side Burner from BBQGuys.com, Bush’s partner and the leading e-commerce retailer for grilling and outdoor living products.

Contest runners up will have a chance to win Peyton-approved “Dad Packs” including Bush’s and BBQGuys signature merchandise and grilling essentials.
