    Official Monthly Throwdown Rules

    BEFORE YOU START COOKING TAPE YOUR CODE WORD TO YOUR CAMERA SO THAT YOU DO NOT FORGET!
    1. The dish must be SMOKEDin the cooking process, or feature SMOKEDingredients in a prominent manner.
    2. You must follow the throwdown theme.
    3. All entries must be cooked during the current throwdown period (4/1 - 4/30). A code word will be provided and must be written on an object and shown in your picture. DO NOT DIGITALLY ADD THE CODE WORD TO YOUR PICTURE .This month's code word is CHOWDOWN
    4. All entries must be submitted by Midnight Eastern time on the night of 4/30.
    5. Entries are to be submitted to me (Fired Up) via Private Message with ONE picture of your dish and a brief description of your entry. Only one entry per person is eligible. Do NOT post your entries in the general forum until after the contest winners have been determined or you will be DISQUALIFIED. After you send me your picture please do not move or delete it from photobucket so that it will remain in the posted thread for future viewing.
    6. There will be two categories for the judging. One will be determined by the judges of the events committee, and the other by SMF members choice through a voting poll. One contestant cannot win both categories. If that should happen, the runner up in the Members choice category will be the winner of that category. Any ties will be broken by the events committee's judging votes. Prize(s) if any will be awarded to the winner of each category.
    7. Events committee judging will be based on three scores, each given a score of 1-10 for a 30 possible points per judge. These will then be combined with all of the judges scores. Whoever has the most points will be the winner. The judging will be based on these three scores.
    ORIGINALITY =Trying something outside of the box.
    APPEARANCE = How good the dish looks.
    DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY = Technical difficulty and the amount of work that has gone into the dish.
    8. Any entries that do not adhere to these rules will be disqualified. Judges decisions are final.
    9. These rules are subject to change. Any changes made will be added at the beginning of the following throwdown.
    If you have any questions please send me (Fired Up) a private message and I will be happy to answer them for you.
    Good Luck and have fun!

    I know Brad you should put it in Big Letters and at the top of the page. No Just kiddin guys but it is not that hard to see. It will be a good item for sure easy yet leaves the door open for some real interesting sammies too.
     
  8. Hey rbranstner,
    They probably got you on a client server connection. The company I work for has me on a Mobility XE Client program. It's just another security program. I just go into the program and bypass it when I'm on SMF. I then go into it and re connect after I'm done looking at SMF.
    Good luck.

    Just to clarify things a bit. A sandwich can be pretty much anything that is "sandwiched" between something else. For example you could have a hamburger patty between 2 grilled portabella mushrooms. It can be on any type of bread or bun as well. Or even a tortilla wrap. It could also be something that is served open faced like a Hot Brown or Manhattan.
    Hope this helps.

    I made grilled sandwiches last night, used Challah bread, turkey pastrami, smoked cheddar, topped with sauerkraut, dipped in Italian dressing, never thought to qview a sandwich but I guess I shoulda....they where tasty. I make samiches all the time so maybe this is the month I enter....maybe.
