How to Win; Prize
Subject to the other terms and conditions of these Official Rules, one randomly selected eligible entrant will win a BBQ smoker (prize value not to exceed $300, including any relevant shipping costs).

Each entrant is responsible for monitoring the entrant’s email (including the entrant’s spam and junk folders) for the prize notification and any other communications related to the Sweepstakes. If a potential winner does not (i) send the reply email to Sponsor within 24 hours after Sponsor emails the prize notification, or (ii) provide Sponsor with a valid address for prize delivery within one week after Sponsor emails the prize notification, that entrant will forfeit the prize and another random drawing will take place to select the prize recipient.
