If I could pick the throwdown category it would be?

Hi guys and gals,

I thought it would be a good idea to hear what you guys would like to see as a category for upcoming throwdowns. And yes, there will be a fatty throwdown later this year.

good thought, some of the regular meats would be hard to do, like briskets , and porks they all look similar, just dont taste the same, maybee ribs or whole chickens, burgers or hot dogs might be fun

Scraps turned into Sausage.

Cold Smoked sausages

Anything Goes... if it is in smoke

Seafood (we are doing that this month)

Ground Meat smokes

Vegetarian Smokes

I would suggest to keep people entering that you keep track of placing and points on a graph so people enter every month. This would allow for a throwdown points champion at the end of the year. Anything to get people to do things that take them into an area never attempted. (For me that is a fattie)

My first thought was fatties, but I guess you already thought of that.

I think one dedicated to peppers would be good. abt's, rellanos, anything where the central object is a pepper.

Maybe a cold-smoke throwdown??

I would say fish but I have a feeling they all may look alike and without a taste test it would be hard to judge.

pork ribs(a spares month, a bb's month, and maybe even a csr month)
beef ribs
beef roast

I think butts, picnic shoulders, briskets could be done. They all dont looke the same, some look alot better than others(smoke ring, moistness, bark, etc.)

lamb or goat

good call,

a wild game one would be nice as well for all the hunters and those with access to wild game meats.

How about a "Breakfast" themed throwdown?

This would be a doosey,, but what about an online smoke comp, IE
all in the same entry?

Only reason I was thinking of this is because I am contemplating going to a comp or two this year and need to do a few practice runs,,,

I love this months title, but with the weather doubt I will do anything.

Sausage would be interesting..

How about a "whole spread"? Each food item would contain smoked ingredients prominently. All would be pictured at a table, ready to be consumed.

A dinner would include an appetizer, a meat, a side or two, and a dessert. Breakfast might consist of a sausage "fatty" along with some hashbrowns or toast of some kind--maybe some flapjacks with some "smoked syrup". Lunch could be a sandwich with smoked meat and some type of side.

Maybe do one style (breakfast, lunch, dinner) once a year?

something cajun....

I'm with Bruce (dirt guy) on this one I like the whole meal deal. Maybe not a big party spread but maybe a good Dinner spread would be better idea.
