Each month here on SMF they pick a certain menu item and have a throwdown (competition) then we submit our own dishes that we have made for the judges to judge. Then the whole website gets to look at the dishes and we can vote on a winner. That's a throwdown and they are fun and you can make anything that you want to as long as it is smoked and has the main ingredient in the dish. usually a sponsor will donate a prize. There's a voters prize and a judges prize.
