Planning to devour some sticky barbecued ribs this weekend? Don’t feel guilty: they could be your ticket to a free trip to Blackberry Farm, the Travel + Leisure's World’s Best Award–winning resort in Walland, Tennessee. Starting today, “spot” Southern dishes—from BBQ to grits to gumbo—on Foodspotting, a website and app for finding the best meals around the globe, and you’ll be entered for a chance to a win a trip for two to one of the country’s best foodie escapes.
Blackberry Farm was named the No. 1 resort for service in the U.S. and Canada in this year’s World’s Best Awards, but it’s equally renowned for its authentic, farm-to-table cuisine, served with a dash of Tennessee charm. T+L’s resident food expert, Features Director and Special Correspondent Nilou Motamed, who happened to be staying at the resort this week, just told us about the hotel’s mouthwatering BLT, with Benton’s bacon, fried green tomato, and a house-made pickle on buttery, Sally Lunn bread (see the picture she tweeted of it, below).
You could be eating that yourself soon. Here’s how it works: Sign up at Foodspotting.com, take a photo of a dish served at a restaurant or other venue, and select the type of food you're "spotting." If it's a southern-inspired dish, you'll be automatically entered for a trip to Blackberry Farm—from now through June 30th! (The prize includes two nights' accommodation at Blackberry Farm, plus all meals and travel to Tennessee.) See more here.

Spot one of the dishes listed above. Each eligible “spot” counts as a separate entry, so spot as many qualified dishes as you'd like to increase your chances of winning.

Winner will be randomly selected from the pool of candidates. For legal reasons, the contest is only open to U.S. residents age 21 and older. For more details on the rules, click here.
