    so they made a program that spells everything wrong just to make french canadians happy
    :)) for the throwdown how about making it simpler like just make seafood, or mexican, or a burrito throwdown etc.   instead of plating being important i would rather see a progessive cook from prep to ingrediants to the actual cook itself, its easier to see ingrediants and how it was cooked to know if it was good or not, winning because you have nice plates just isnt right

    I'll be the judge.  Send me your recipes, printed on the back of a $50 bill, and I will judge each entry by recreating it on my Egg.

    If VI or Hapster will email me some pics of their recent cooks I will gladly enter them in my name in the competition. That way I can set back and do nothing but drink beer and still have a good chance of winning.

    I plan on a killer recipe, so I'll use a Benjamin.

    I think this is a great idea @Little Steven What about using some type of photo voting contest app that you can install on a Facebook page.  I hate Facebook but a quick Google search for photo voting contest seems to bring up a lot of Facebook app results.

    Oh geez...an online food contest with voting? Does nobody remember what happened last time I entered one of those? I kid, I kid. I know they did them in the past on the other forum and the time on the smoke ring. Sounds like fun. Count me in as long as I can be in the bourbon drinking photo stealing newbie category. :D

    Yes. I thought r270ba could set up a site for the pics. If you can do that that's fine. There will be lots of opportunity for everybody to chip in in the long term

    Are we all cooking the same thing? What are the rules? I think everyone should start off with a full bottle of Woodford!

    Just for the record that brisket pic did not come from the internet. ........ I took a rock, sprayed with Baby oil and put halogen lighting on it.....

    The great thing about brisket...every one looks the same. Every pic I posted was brisket cen-tex did. :ar!
    And I bought all those from Franklins.

    I think that @Little_Steven suggested the whole idea, so he should pick a category (burgers, pizza, etc) or a few ingredients (protein, veggie, fruit, etc) and let us use our imagination and run with it. The second would give us more room to get creative. But he came up with the idea, so let's run with his idea. I'm getting excited. I think one week from announcement to submission for photos would be good. Announce on Monday, submit by Sunday.

    I'm out. And let LS make the rules. Like if it was chili, beans or no beans, even though we know chili doesn't have beans. :P
