    We are at that time of year when mainstream BBQ is starting to go quiet and the posts on the forum also start to decline. To help us get the UK group turbo charged for the winter I am offering a prize for the most original BBQ photo taken by UK or European members of the forum. I don't want to exclude our US members (or members from other countries) and so you can also submit photos for fun, however as the prize will be food based it would almost certainly be impounded by your customs during shipment.

    What do you have to do?

    Submit electronically a photo that is BBQ related. It can be anything.. A plate of BBQ food that you are proud of, your new smoker, your latest UDS going into meltdown, the dog stealing the Sunday joint off the BBQ - absolutely anything. The only criteria is that it must be an original photo that you have taken yourself and it must not be digitally enhanced. The limit will be a maximum of 3 entries per member

    I will be accepting photos up to, and including, the 30th November and these can be sent to me in PM or e-mailed to me directly (please PM me for my e-mail address)

    The photos will then be judged by an expert panel (though as yet I am not exactly sure what they will be expert in !) and the 3 most original photos (assuming we get 3 or more) will be displayed here. The top 3 can include photos send from outside Europe however the prize will be awarded to the most original European entry.

    The prize will consist of:
    • A bacon dry curing kit with instructions - sufficient for up to 2 Kg pork (pork not included)
    • 250g Smoked Dead Sea salt
    • A selection of smoked nuts
    • 250g of "Woodchurch Smokery" mediun rib rub
    • 500g Cookshack Chicken rub
    "Wow!" I hear you all gasp. Well stop making all that noise and get out there with your cameras.


    Oh btw. I forgot to mention the legal bit - that the judges decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered in to etc.etc.

    A good question. As this is the first one we can make the rules up as we go. Let us limit it to 3 per member [​IMG]
     
  4. Sounds like a good plan buddy.  Something to kick start the Group.  Don't know why smoking shuts down here in the winter.  Yes bad weather and all but folks just need to do things that get done quicker.

    You would bring this up now; just after I finished my smoked whole wildebeest!  [​IMG]

    Great idea!  Kep Smokin!

    You know what they say Danny, :no-pics:
     
  6. When you say "no digital enhancement" do you mean no editing whatsoever or just no combining of images e.t.c?

    No combining images or significantly altering the original photo. If you want to adjust contrasts etc (or as in Dannys case, remove the flash red-eye from his whole roasting Wildebeest), then that is fine.
     
  8. Sound, thanks for clarifying Wade. Didn't think you'd get back as quickly at this ungodly hour ;)

    We may get suspicious about your 5 legged chicken.

    Yes - sad isn't it when you cannot sleep on a Sunday morning. Someone told me once that it was the sign of a guilty conscience [​IMG]

    So this would not be allowed?

    Did you just take that photo from my back patio? I found that the Christmas hats didn't cook too well though.

    Thanks Steve!. I have sent all of my salt back now that I know that [​IMG]
     
  15. Nah!  Buddy I can tell you the truth!  It's a sign we are getting older!  When I was young I could sleep 12-14 hrs., now 4-6 hrs. is about it.  Maybe we are afraid we are gonna miss something!

    I am having some trouble locating a wildebeest!  Photos may be late.  [​IMG]   Keep Smokin!

    We already have a few photos submitted but there are still 6 days left if you have not yet submitted yours. Dust off that camera and get the BBQ out and lit this weekend [​IMG]
