I believe that this truly had to be the most difficult throw-down in SMF history. Both emotionally and in the effort participants had to put in researching, replicating and presenting their dishes for all of us to enjoy. Kudos to all who entered, voted, and judged. We may not have had the quantity of entries, but we certainly had the quality. Now on to the winners.

First up: The forum poll voting.

A big congratulations goes out to David DRKsmoking DRKsmoking for his rendition of Foamheart's classic 5 Boned Pork Rib Roast. A truly spectacular entry David.

One final thank you to all who participated, voted and judged. A special thank you to all the mods, admins and of course Jeff. For letting us put on these throw-downs and offering us guidance when we need it. I'd also like to give a shout out to Porter Road and Robert for their prize generosity. Without the prizes there wouldn't be any throwdowns.

Robert, Jake it has been a pleasure working with the two of you, and I hope we can continue to grow these throw down together and our friendship.

Stay tuned the next throw-down is just around the corner.

Congrats to all who entered. It was a tough choice in voting for sure. Everyone did more than justice honoring our members who are no longer with us. Like said above, I'm sure they're smiling down on all. This was one great throwdown idea.
