October TD Honorable Mention - disqualified (but definitely worth mentioning)

post #1 of 69
Thread Starter 

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.

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!

Mine was a while back.  Same thing I think I wrote smoked or something like that and sent it in.... then I get the PM.... did the same response you did, it was fun making it and got to at least show it anyway.

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 !!!!

I bow before the alter of Squirrel! Cheryl that is outstanding! Looks great, super original, and I'm sure it tasted great - hopefully you had a small army to help you eat it!


I feel for you on the entry spoiler......... but at least now my chances went up by about 5000%, you would have burried my entry.... lol.

Wow!!! I am now totally intimidated form ever submiiting an entry. How can I compete with the likes of that. Quantity AND quality. Impressive.

post #15 of 69

WOW Cheryl that is some awesome food. I am with Bear - how did you do the snake?

post #16 of 69

That all looks awesome

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.




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.




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




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!






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.





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.








Cherry Cobbler fattie:






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.

Old MacDonald called and would like his farm back...... or at least the 12 pigs.... lol.


That is one hell of an impressive bacon weave there.
