Are you a master of the grill? Is your burger the best in the neighborhood? Do you have a homemade patty recipe that friends and family just can’t resist? Then it’s time to enter Sutter Home’s Build A Better Burger® Recipe Contest.


To celebrate its 27th year, Sutter Home’s Build A Better Burger® Contest is going on the road to discover another grand slam on the plate! Simply submit your best burger recipe for a chance to test out your grill skills at a series of live semifinal cook-off events. Contestants will go head-to-head to determine who will win the crown at our national final in Napa Valley, California, where the winner will receive a $25,000 cash prize!


Our judges are looking for recipes that reinvent the traditions of America’s favorite pastime — grilling. Whether it’s a signature burger with a twist or a completely new burger concept, we’re looking for fun, innovative, and delicious spins on this all-American favorite.


All burger recipes will be reviewed by a panel of experts to select the top four in each region. These semifinalists will be invited to participate in a series of live cook-off tailgate events across the country that will culminate at the National Finals hosted at Sutter Home Winery in beautiful Napa Valley. Burgers will be scored on Taste, Creativity, Ease of Preparation, and Wine Pairing to determine who built the best burger.
