Reynolds Wrap wants to hire a chief grilling officer (CGO) to travel the country in search of the tastiest ribs, and the job pays $10,000

“If you don't mind being paid to taste some of the most delicious BBQ ribs across the country, posting envy-inducing pictures of your food and falling asleep every night dreaming about your next rack of ribs, then you could have what it takes to be the next Reynolds Wrap® Chief Grilling Officer,” officials with the company state in a news release.

The gig begins in August and will last for two weeks. If chosen, you will be responsible for posting photos and grilling tips to the brand’s website and social media platforms. All of your flight and lodging expenses will be taken care of, and you can even bring a guest. 

To apply, go online and submit a photo of yourself grilling along with a 100-word statement about why you’d be best for the position. All applications are due by midnight CST Wednesday, June 19.
