Thrill your grill with this amazing Omaha Steaks Giveaway!

Sigh summer is quickly coming to an end and for some that means its almost time to pack up the grill – for others it means it nearly grill season (cause who wants to grill outside in 120 degree heat).  Having been a long time fan of Omaha Steaks its pretty impressive that you get such quality meats and shipped to you with enough dry ice to keep the food frozen.

This summer I’ve enjoyed Burgers and Hotdogs from Omaha Steaks as part of this review… The hamburgers were great texture and good flavor but the outstanding hot dogs are some of the best – its not like a hotdog but more of red-hot (a type of hotdog) in rochester.  My Son has been loving these as its much easier because of the size of the hotdog ti peel the skin off and still enjoy a good size hotdog.

This package is way way better then the sample package I was rocking but still a great way to kick off the fall grilling season!
