Here we go. Have fun. Please remember to keep any comments you post on this thread general. It's okay to post things like "everything looks great". It's not okay to post things like " I love Number 2 and everyone should vote for that one". Any posts deemed in appropriate will be removed by the MOD staff.

 

The entries are in no particular order. I placed names in a hat and drew them out. When voting the number listed in the poll corresponds with the entry number show before each dish.

 

The photos are the original photos, formatted as best as possible to keep them all similar sizes but otherwise un-edited.  

 

PRIZES!!!!

 

Winners of this Throwdown will receive a Lavatool Javelin Instant Read Thermometer and a Pacific Northwest care package.

 

Good Luck!

You may have something there. With today's shipping advances.. maybe we can ship food to someone that can Set up a panel of judges in his or her home , to taste all the entries sent in with dry ice coolers, in sealed bags and with heating instructions.. lol except the prize would need to be more than the shipping costs of the coolers.. lol


Imagine a brisket throw Down with say, one of our respected members and his or her family as judges? Or his butcher and bowling league buddies judging our brisket sent by Fed Ex? Lol

May be some hesitation by judges about the food being all safe to eat. 🤓
