My wife found out about a cook off that was going to be held at Cooks Warehouse in conjuction with Wordsmith Books and BGE with the judging being done by Steven Raichlen author of The Barbecue Bible.

I cooked drumsticks that had been marinating for 24 hrs in an island mango marinade. Never entered a contest before, didn't know what to expect.Cooked my chicken perfect and promptly put it in the nice little white starofoam togo box they gave us.
Long story short got third major point lose to presentation(or the lack of)
I'm loading them up
Checking the temp

    That is impressive!! Way to go! Do Steve know you cooked on an egg? Did you have time to speak with him or just the quick photo?

    Oh, recipe would be cool too!!

    congratulations, that is an accomplishment. Is island mango marinade a brand or a recipe? I'd like to give it a whirl

    CONGRATS. Great showing.
  • BGE supplied the EGGs for everyone to cook on and it had to be chicken
  • They like Parsley in those boxes. Congrats. Did you ask him if he ever considered a "barber"? :woohoo: :ohmy:
