Thread Starter 

Here are the rules, please read them carefully.
Official Monthly Throwdown Rules
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 (3/1 - 3/31). 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 CLUCKER
4. All entries must be submitted by Midnight Eastern time on the night of 3/31.
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. 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!

Please do not forget your code word. We had 4 entries for February that I could not accept because they either forgot the code word, wrote the wrong code word, or added the code word digitally to the photo.

I feel like a jerk when I have to tell these people that all of their work was for nothing (other than a great meal).

But in the end "Rules are Rules" and they will be strictly adhered to.

Once again, I am sorry for those whose entries I could not accept and thank you for understanding.

March should see a lot of entries, we have so many great chicken lovers and smokers here at SMF. I've got my eye on a recipe that I'll submit. Good luck to all, and do carefully read the rules, give Brad the relief from not having to accept some entries.

Brad, don't feel bad, it was my fault I wrote the wrong word down. Not a problem, I don't expect the rules bent and will try to be more careful with the word that is supposed to be used.

Before anyone else asks, the theme is chicken. Any breed of chicken is fine, cornish game hens are fine because they are just small chickens. But no duck, quail, pheasant, turkey, squab,dove, partridge, peacock, flamingo, eagle, rhino etc.....

However, a cornish game hen stuffed with rhino and flamingo would be acceptable.....as long as it is smoked. And you remember to include the non-digitally added codeword CLUCKER in your photo, and you send your photo to me by 12pm eastern time on 3-31.icon_mrgreen.gif

Also, it is in everyone's best interest to NOT wait until the last minute to turn in your entry. IF there is a problem and you did not wait until the last day to enter, you might be able to fix it or do something else. So if you have the time turn them in early please.

Have fun and lets see a big turnout on this one!
