    I PRESENT YOU OCT THROWDOWN ENTRIES.

    PLEASE NOTE THAT ENTRY #9 WAS SUBMITTED AFTER THE DEADLINE ON 10/31/14. I HAVE INCLUDED IT BUT IT IS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR THE JUDGES VOTING. IF YOU CHOOSE TO VOTE FOR IT PLEASE NOTE THAT IT WAS LATE.




    1) Pulled Pork Two Cheeses Spinach Pizza, Pulled Pork Cigars, Crispy Baked Kale Chips

    Homemade Pizza Dough that was brushed with roasted garlic infused olive oil and topped with; Leftover Pulled Pork, Roasted Red Bell Peppers, Roasted Green Bell Peppers, Fresh Spinach, Diced Red Onions, and covered with - Feta cheese on half of the pizza and Mozzarella on the other half.

    Side of Pulled Pork Cigars served with homemade salsa and Crème’ Fraiche (also homemade)

    Crispy Baked Kale Chips.



    2) Smoked beef ramen with egg and green onions.

    Left over smoked Chuck roast for chopped beef sandwiches. Also used juice from Chuck roast to creat broth.

    3) Pantry Raid Posole

    Using leftovers and some pantry items, this is a posole rojo. The stock is chicken stock made from the bones of smoked chicken, the meat is leftover smoked pork shoulder, and the soup is flavored with leftover home-smoked chipotles and home-cured guanciale. Non-leftover ingredients are: hominy, cabbage, radish, onion, lime, garlic, dried New Mexico chiles, and salt.

    4) Italian Fatty Pizza

    We made italian fatties by mixing ground beef and sausage with italian spices to make a large meatball. This was then filled with ricotta, mozzarella, marinara and fresh basil. I wrapped up the fatties in bacon and smoked them on my Brinkmann Electric with a blend of hickory and apple for just under 3 hours.

    We were left with half a fatty of the original 3 and decided to make a fatty pizza.

    5) Cherry smoked then chicken fried Colorado Elk back-strap with (all homemade) linguine noodles, garlic parmesan cream sauce, eggplant heirloom tomato sauce, sided with smoked ciabatta garlic herb toast and topped with a few aged smoked parmesan sprinkles.

    6) Pulled Pork Enchiladas.

    Left over pulled pork and smoked old cheddar.

    7) Transformation and surprise is the best way to use leftovers.

  5. Very FINE job by all.  Can't wait for the recipes.  This one is tough!  For a Throwdown you have a certain personal criteria you judge by and then they have thrown in the curve ball of "left overs".  I wish each and every entrant THE VERY BEST OF LUCK!  I whimped out!  [​IMG]   Keep Smokin!

    Haha! Me too! I was gonna enter this one with a "pizza cake" made with left over pulled pork, chicken and sausage, but Case posted one in the regular forums that he'd made for his son I think. I can see I'd have been way out classed anyway. Incredible creativity here, great job by all!
