Let’s just get straight to the point on this one, because a job this tasty needs little preamble.

Travel the country for two weeks. Gorge yourself on the best barbecue money can buy. Document your experience. Get paid $10,000.

Yes, you read that right. And no, it’s not a trick. Reynolds Wrap is searching for its first ever Chief Grilling Officer.

As Chief Grilling Officer, you’ll be responsible for hitting cities across the country known for mouth-watering barbecue to sample the goods. You’ll learn about grilling culture, as well as tips and tricks and new techniques in the grilling world. Then you’ll share your newfound barbecue wisdom and some nice photos on the company’s social media accounts and the Reynolds Kitchens website.

Sounds easy enough, right?

The CGO will be paid thousands of dollars for two weeks of what can’t be called “work,” and Reynolds Wrap will foot the bill for all of the travel and lodging. That means you can spend that cool $10K on whatever you please.

And if free travel, delectable barbecue and a boatload of cash aren’t enough to entice you, the Chief Grilling Officer also gets to bring a friend along on this journey of sauce-filled discovery.

It might only be a temporary job, but you’ve got to admit it’s a pretty sweet one — or should I say savory?

All you have to do is type up 100 words on why you’re the best candidate for this role and snap a picture of your favorite grilling recipe. If you’re a barbecue fanatic, you were probably already going to whip up something on the grill this week anyway.

And if you’re the lucky carnivore that snags this coveted role, here’s a tip from one barbecue lover to another: Pack more wet wipes than you think you’ll need. And then pack some more.

Kaitlyn Blount is a staff writer at The Penny Hoarder. She’s already had the best barbecue in the country, and it’s from The Brick Pit in Mobile, Alabama. Don’t @ me.
