Build a Better Burger
What: Perhaps the granddaddy of burger contests, now in its 21st year and sponsored mainly by Sutter Home Winery in Napa Valley, Calif.
Enter: Through Sept. 3. The cook-off will be held on the grounds of the winery in May.
Grand prize: $100,000.
Rules: Beef burger patties must have at least 75 percent beef (not veal). Alternative burgers (which vie for a $15,000 prize) can be made from any ground food, including some beef, but beef can't make up more than 25 percent of the patty. Enter as many burger recipes as you like. Burgers are judged on creativity, taste and visual appeal. Get details or enter at sutterhome.com.
