Just throwing this out there to gauge the interest level as these do require alot of time on my part to do and Im glad to do it as long as we have the interest level to support it.

Would you folks be interested in doing a throwdown for LaborDay?

I think there will be a lot of interest in this Brian!
There are so many talented cooks on here, I can’t wait to see what they come up with!

I'm guessing the cooking timeframe would be several days long?

I’d be in for sure. I remember when I first joined there were many throw downs. Was one of the first things that sparked my interest in good pics and plating. I’ll throw in some local rubs for the prize kitty. Just hit me up closer to Labor Day.

I see a lot of comments of people working the Labor Day weekend. Maybe the submissions could be opened up to a 2 week period of time ending Labor Day? I participate in some challenges in some FB groups but one of be frustrating things often is a very short submission window.

I also agree that it should have a two weekend window ending on the day after the holiday for people that are traveling or have to work.

I'll gladly compete in the throw down judging/eating contest. I'll post my address, then contestants can overnight your submissions too me for judging .:emoji_stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::emoji_laughing:

I'm not into food art, I'm into food tasting, so I'm out, good luck to those that enter.
I voted yes because I like seeing what people come up with .👍

Great Idea Brian and thanks in advance for the effort it will take. If the Theme sparks an idea, I'm in the contest otherwise, more than happy to be a Judge. These Throwdowns are fun either way.

And Guys, dont worry about having to work. Although I don't remember exactly, the Window to Cook and Submit is long enough for members who work weekends to have plenty of time to get their Entry Submitted. Below is the Rules from past Throwdowns to give you an Idea of how they work...JJ
