Well folks it's time for another throw-down, and this one has the potential to be the mother of all throw-downs. With the two well known BBQ holidays fast approaching. The committee decided to span both Memorial day and the 4th of July in this throw-down. So there is plenty of time for you to get your entries ready.

...and the theme for this throw-down is(drum roll please) RIBS.

Show us your skills and cook up your best ribs. They can be beef, pork, bone-in or boneless. All we ask is that they be cooked on a grill or smoker. Simple enough and who doesn't love ribs.

Here is a link to the throw-down rules. Please read and become familiar with the rules to avoid any future disappointments.


Entries must be submitted by midnight Sunday July 9th via a private message to Robert ( tx smoker tx smoker ). Any entries posted to the open forum, Roberts profile page, or to me will be automatically disqualified.

The codeword for this throw-down is: Ribs, and must be included in your submission picture.

Now onto the unbelievable prize packages being offered:

First place in the forum poll will receive a gift card from Porters Road valued at 100.00.


The second place winner in the forum poll will receive their choice of three prizes. Donated by our very own Robert.

This one should be a blast!! Rockin' ribs for the better part of two months. I might have to get a back up drive to store all the entries for this one :emoji_laughing: Chris is right though...who doesn't love a good rib? They are BBQ staples.
hot sauces. Generously donated by Jeff ( jcam222 jcam222 )
Not only were the donated by Jeff, they were also made by him. I can personally attest to the fact that they are amazing!! These were in the gift package I got from him for our Christmas exchange and I've been totally blown away by how fantastic they are.

I'm new here, and haven't made Ribs since 2 years ago. (last year was busy getting my leg amputated, and then 2 months later my Heart valve replacement.- Short story is "Blood infection" basically) THAT said, I just cleaned out the smoker the other day, and I'm ready.
I'm Certainly no pro, (but made several amateur racks), but compared to this place, it's really an uphill battle.
But I can't resist, I may just participate in this. :emoji_sunglasses:

I better get practicing..

Wow sounds like you've been thru a lot in the last couple of years. I'm happy all is well now. None of us are really pro's(that I know of). Since you've got your smoker all cleaned up, I say go for it. What better way to break it in again. It only costs the price of the ribs, and look what you could walk away with!!! That and enjoying some good chow.

Good luck if you decide to participate.

Sounds like you have had a rough go of things. I'm thrilled to hear that you're getting back in the race though.

As Chris said, there are no real pros here, just a bunch of backyard enthusiasts with a great support group with the forum members. I'd ask that you not think of it as an uphill battle. These things are a ton of fun and our only wish is for people to enjoy themselves and the camaraderie that the TD's bring to the forum. Cannot wait to see what you turn out and if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask. We'd rather answer them than see a mishap with any of the entries.

I am definitely getting in on this one! I missed the burger brawl due to pouring rain the last weekend of it :(
Woo hoo!! This is gonna be fun. Sorry to hear that you got rained out for the last one...and yes, Water Rat ribs are an acceptable entry :emoji_laughing: They might pair nicely with the chipmunk ribs I mentioned earlier :emoji_astonished:

Great idea for a TD. For some reason July seems so far off, shouldn't that be June 9?

EDIT Just read it better and see it is spanning BOTH holidays. SORRY!

Completely understandable oversight. These things typically run a month but we try to mix things up to keep them interesting. Spanning two of the best known BBQ holidays in the Summer just seemed like it may be a fun little twist this time around.

Sorry you had to go through all that. I myself had a pretty bad accident and literally died, but I’m on the mend now and looking forward to competing. I would say I’m just dying to compete but at this juncture in my life, that joke isn’t as funny as it used to me.

Best of luck to you (and everyone else of course)! Let the smoking begin! 🔥
