Yea, Stuff it. That is the only rule.
I know that some were expecting something strange from me, however, I decided that rather than trying to angle this throwdown into a certain direction by requiring certain ingredients or limiting the tools, I simply wanted to push for the most creativity as possible, so the entries themselves, rather than the parameters, will be the interesting stuff. Accordingly, the only requirement of this throwdown is that whatever it is you cook, it must be stuffed.
You can stuff a chicken with a pizza or a grape with a peanut, so long as you stuff something with something else.
It can be a main course, a side dish, an appetizer or dessert; you can invent a new category if that makes you happy.
Gadgets: feel free to use whatever you have (you can even cook components of the final dish in your kitchen if you want), and all accessories are fair game.
The final stuffed item(s) must be cooked on the egg of course, & that photo will be required with your entry.
Judging: Entries will be judged primarily on their creativity & uniqueness as well as presentation and just plain old how much we all want to reach into the computer & grab a piece, so please keep these in mind.
When: Throwdown V will be held this coming weekend. You may submit entries anytime between Wednesday, November 11, 2009 and midnight, Saturday, November 14, 2009 (midnight where ever you are). I will assemble the judging post early Sunday morning* and voting will commence as soon as its posted, and end that evening at 7pm (eastern).
How: Entries should be submitted as follows: Email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org as a JPEG, not as an IMG (what you use to post on the forum). Email 3 pictures, the ingredients, the egg shot, & the plated shot you want included in the voting thread. Also, please name your dish, whatever you name it will be the only description that accompanies your picture on the voting thread.
* Keep in mind, your sponsor will be attending the tikifest festivities at WessB’s house on Saturday while all of the entries are being submitted, so, I will not be available to answer any questions during this crucial phase, so please try & follow the instructions or bill will come to your house & throw caveman club you to death sauce on you, and that might not be good.
Now go forth & stuff it
