Dream job: Get paid $5,000-a-week to travel the country and eat ribs


All I’ve ever wanted from life is to be able to eat ribs and be left in peace.

Too bad that’s not a real job, right?


Reynolds Wrap is looking for someone to travel the U.S. in search of the country’s tastiest ribs. Yep, you read that right: they want someone to go on the trip of a lifetime, where ribs are on the menu every day.


Speaking on the offer in a news release, the company wrote: “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.”

And yes, if you’re wondering, you will be paid for the time you spend chowing down on the most perfect food ever created by man. In fact, you’ll be handed a $10,000 check for your troubles.


The selected candidate will travel across American for the first two weeks of August. The aim is to find the best barbecue in the country, and if chosen you’ll be responsible for posting photos, grilling techniques and more on the Reynolds Wraps website and social media pages.

Oh, and as an additional sweetener – as if one was needed – travel is prepaid, as well as lodging for you and one guest.

If you’re interested in applying for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, you need to submit a photo of yourself grilling along with 100 words about why you’re perfect for the job. Applications must be done by Wednesday, June 19 at midnight on the company website, which can be found here.
