Are hot dogs on your summer barbecue shopping list?

If you’re on Twitter, you have the chance to win them for free — but you have to act quickly.

Tyson Foods is giving away coupons for a free package of Ball Park Angus Beef Franks (original, bunsize or lean), which typically retails for $5.99.

It’s going to be luck of the draw at this point: The giveaway runs through June 25 at noon, and you may not know if you’ve received a coupon until a few business days after the contest closes.

You might as well enter. You have nothing to lose but a smidgen of your dignity.

How to Win Free Hot Dogs This Weekend

Here’s how it works:

1. Follow @ballparkbrand on Twitter

2. Make sure your account is public/unprotected

3. Change your Twitter name or handle so it includes the words “Angus” or “Frank”

4. Tweet from this hot-dog loving Twitter handle using hashtag #BallParkAngusGiveaway

5. Wait.

The first 10,000 people to submit legitimate entries will win this tasty giveaway. If Ball Park sends you a direct message to alert you to your prize, you’ll have one day to provide your full name, email address and mailing address.

After that, you’ll receive your coupon in the mail within four weeks.

So you may not get this freebie in time for your Independence Day party. But a late-summer evening by the grill — with some free hot dogs — still sounds pretty nice, doesn’t it?

I know I’m looking forward to some free hot dogs!
