Several years ago my wife informed me that I was no longer allowed to own white t-shirts follow countless incidents in which she was forced to try rescuing ones that had been badly stained by charcoal, meat juices, and/or barbecue sauce.
The problem, however, wasn’t that I’m a slob but that none of the countless aprons I had amassed at various events or as gifts could standup to the rigors of repeated outdoor use and the subsequent washes so I simply gave up trying.
About a year ago, however, I received the aptly named Memphis apron from Chef Works (you can check it out here), a company that is best known as a leading supplier of high quality, fashion-forward apparel for the professional culinary world. Since then, the apron has become as much a part of my outdoor cooking routine as Kingsford charcoal and my trusty Thermapen instant-read thermometer due to its high-quality, durability tested design. Plus, if I’m being honest, I look awesome wearing it!
It is no surprise then to hear that Chef Works’ stylish Urban line of aprons (the Memphis is just one of several designs in this line), have become increasingly popular among backyard cooks and other home cooks and that the company will soon be rolling out a retail program that will bring the aprons directly to store shelves near you.
In fact, the company will kick off the new program at the 2015 EGGtoberfest, an annual event hosted by leading ceramic smoker and grill manufacturer Big Green Egg to be held October 10th at Stone Mountain Park in Stone Mountain, GA.
For those of you who will not be able to check them out in person, though, Grillocracy is hosting a giveaway during which one lucky reader will receive a prize pack valued at nearly $325.00 including:
