    There was an entry this month that was disqualified from the contest. Because of the overall effort, and abundance of creativity behind the entry, I think it's worth an honorable mention.

    Squirrel's Halloween Spread Fattie (disqualified because there was more than one plate entered)

    Cherry cobbler wrapped in cinnamon rolls, cheesesteak snake (using 7 cheeses), turkey leg dinner - turkey, dressing, cranberries; chicken quesadilla with black beans and spicy rice wrapped in a tortilla weave.

    She hand carved the two pumpkins in the back! Check out the one with the SMF logo!

    Chin Up Squirrel, that is a lot of great work.

    Also wanted you to know I had one DQ'd for putting the wrong word on the paper when I took the picture.

  3. That all looks AMAZING! Any one of those would have had a good chance at winning, but the cherry cobbler takes the cake. Great work Squirrel.

    Thanks everybody! I don't feel bad about it. It was a blast doing it and the most important thing is that I get to share it with all my buddies!!! I can assure you of one thing though, THAT WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN. I'm gettin' ready for November's TD!

    Sorry to you too bbally for writing the wrong word. I almost messed up on that too because as I started my pumpkin carving I actually started with "fattie" instead of "stuffed". Man, that would have been a double whammy!

    Squirrel, That is totally unbelievicibal, fantastical, and superbilicious!!!

    I can't even imagine how much time you spent on that!

    I love the snake---How'd you make the head????

    You could do some awesome chainsaw work!

    Yes there are girls (ladies/women) doing chainsaw carving---Even in big competitions!!!

    Beautiful job Squirrel, and I thought the squirrels that used to attack my bird feeder were talented !!!!

    Here's some more pictures, sorry for so many, but I wanted you to see some fun stuff!

    I used a cornish game hen breast section for the head of my sneaky snake.

    [​IMG]

    Here's the smoked hunk of steak I used in the cheesesteak snake. Man was it good. Not as good as the dry aged one, but still really good.

    [​IMG]

    Here's the seven cheeses: goat's milk brie, stilton bleu, mozzarella, swiss, goat, sharp cheddar and monteray jack.

    [​IMG]

    A better shot of the snake head, I used some of the stuffing I made for the other fattie and rolled them into balls, took a peeler and whacked a piece from a cucumber to make the slits for the eyes. I have no idea how I came up with that one but it worked. I actually like this picture better than the one I submitted, but I forgot to put the glaze on the cherry cobbler fatty, and it bugged me that you could see the furniture in the background. LOL!

    [​IMG]

    Here's more of the snake, I forgot to take one of him cut open, it was so good. I used five rolls of JD regular sausage. I took it to the guys at the volunteer fire dept. They loved it.

    Here's the weave I did for the "turkey leg". I just twisted the bacon before weaving.

    [​IMG]

    Homemade dressing and orange zest cranberry sauce. It sure is glowing in that picture. Hmmm... I also cooked some real turkey legs and pulled the meat from them to put in this one.

    I used canned cinnamon rolls:

    Chicken quesadilla. I wrapped it in bacon and smoked it, then I wrapped it in plain old flour tortilla's I sliced up, then I deep fried it. OMG it was really yummy. It has some white meat chicken, beans and rice. I ate it with sour cream, pico de gallo and lettuce.

    WOW I know your pain there Girl friend. I also had a opp's on my posting. But I have to give it to you. You definatly did one he... of a job in all that prepping and smoking to put that thing together for sure. I knew you would be hard to beat. I just now saw the making of this throwdown almost entry and I do have one question well maybe 2. #1 Is there a grocery store in the back of your house. If not you most have one heck of a pantry. #2 Now do you feed the soup kitchen in your town. Because I remember reading that you don't usually eat most of the food that you smoke. I'm the same way but I have 3 growing kids that live is the front house that can eat my stuff.

    That is one hell of an impressive bacon weave there.
