UPDATE: this contest is now closed

We had a blast this week, featuring some of the biggest prizes in Dojo contest history. And our 5th annual Cigarbecue HERF was our biggest yet. Thank you to all that participated – stay tuned for more contest and HERFin’ fun on the Dojo app.

Contest winners:

Our contest this week is brought to you by our friends at Camacho Cigars. They’ll be providing some epic prizes, as well as sponsoring our 5th annual Cigarbecue HERF!

  • Joya de Nicaragua cigars
  • Atlantic Cigar Sale

As you all well know, Camacho represents the bold side of the cigar industry—this extends even to their most mild offerings. The Camacho Connecticut is everything you love in a good Connie: buttery smooth, creamy, and pairs perfectly with your morning coffee—only Camacho’s given it the BOLD treatment, amping it up just a few notches, for a fuller experience.

Contest Theme: Cigarbecue goes BOLD

Allow us to break this week’s contest down as follows:

3 – Days

2 – Hashtags

1 – Epic weekend of cigar prizes & HERFin’

Use #LiveLoud with entries

Use #cigarbecue with entries

Day 1 and Day 2 (4/21/16 – 4/22/16) we will be using #LiveLoud – this means get out your bold smokes, make some bold statements, and just live BOLD in general! Have fun with the tag and use it as you see fit, just make it loud and bold!

Day 3 (Saturday, April 23) is Cigarbecue 2016! This was the first HERF ever for Cigar Dojo (actually predating the Dojo), so we always make this a big day. Basically, we’ll be smoking (meats AND ‘gars) all day long! Because this day is so epic, we’re switching the hashtag to #cigarbecue for this last day of the contest. Show us what you’re cooking and what you’re smoking with #cigarbecue to enter.

Grand prize winners

There will be a grand prize winner each and every day of this contest! This is why you’ll want to pay attention to the hashtags listed above. All three of our grand prize winners this week will take home a full box (20 cigars) of Camacho Connecticut cigars in Toro format.

Each grand prize winner will also take home two canisters of Camacho beer glasses. That’s FOUR beer glasses total.

And finally, each grand prize winner will receive a tin of Camacho’s new Connecticut Machitos, featuring 6 long-filler Connecticut cigars in a petit 4″x32 format. These are easily up there with the best 20 minute smoke you’ll ever taste!
