Lastly we have an entry that doesn't have the code word and so can't be eligible for Judges choice. The user also posted a thread about it that has been removed. Im including it because I didn't respond to him fast enough so he posted it on here. If you feel its that good and deserves a vote over the other entries you can vote on it for viewers choice.

15) Crown baby back ribs, wrapped around a onion stuffed with Spanish rice. Al Pastor chicken taco with cabbage vinegar slaw, charro beans with mozzarella tomato and avocado shrimp salad.

All Y'all put me to shame. I'm doing good if I can ace the main dish. Forget about all those great looking sides and the time and effort put into the presentation. I'm not worthy.

I may not vote. Several are 10's. Don't know that I can pick just one.

Wow!

Some strong showings on this throwdown. I had a rough time picking between two of them. Could have went either way. Also tough looking at them all when I’m hungry. Great job boys.
