Judging will be delayed a few days, as I have to go home for a funeral this weekend.

Still have the submissions PMd to myself, Fire It Up, and Pineywoods by the deadline.

For long posts what I would do is create a short forum post with your title, and immediately put up a second or third short post. Then go back and edit the posts and include an equal amount of pics in each.

I'm your competition, so take this for what it's worth.


You only need to send a PM to one of the judges, and they will share amongst themselves.

The forum limit is 30 pictures per post, so you should be safe putting them all in one post if you want. You might consider thumbnails to click on or reduce the size so it loads faster. I finally ditched the dial-up on my home computer just two weeks ago, so I'm sure there are other members still plodding along!Oh, and I'm waiting for after the deadline to start my forum thread!

Anyone can post their threads whenever. I just suggested waiting until after submission. Infact the idea behind this throwdown was to stir creative juices and share them with the members. I just wanted to allow people the chance to feel each of their ideas were unique and not copied.

Honestly I think the sharing of ideas on this forum is great, and since I've been reading I've seen all sorts of things show up and learn a lot. I like fatties because they are great for allowing a creative outlet in BBQ.

Have fun all!

Remember to PM some pictures to use before the deadline just so we are aware of your entry.
