Announcing the Fathers Day 2011 Throwdown!

Postby DATsBBQ » Sun May 22, 2011 9:01 pm

We have a member here on the Texas BBQ Forum who once upon a time cooked comps but has since retired to backyard cooks with family and friends. He posts often, more than 1,500 times since he joined, and always has something good to contribute. Besides his interest in the TBBQForum he loves Cowboy and Longhorn football, softball, hunting and fishing. Any guess of whom I speak?

OK, I’ll give you another hint – he hails from Burleson, Texas.

Still stumped? Well here’s your last hint – He’s won the last three Throw Downs in a row!

Yes Sir, its Limey I’m talking about it. And for the next Throw Down that runs from now through Father’s Day its "Limey Takes On All Comers".

Our theme this time around is the BURGER. Yeah, you know a patty of ground meat, cooked over fire outdoors and put in a bun. :shock: We’re looking for a great burger. :dgrin: A burger worth being given the title of MVP and earning the cook a custom Avatar. :banana: :blues: :drumnana: :fiestanana: Since Limey suggested the theme, you know that he’ll have his grill fired up with three temp zones and his camera lens clean. :wink:

The ABCs:
A. Bun or something like a bun, Hoagie roll, French bread, bagel, Naan, whole wheat toast or even Pita. :chef:
B. Meat Patty. You choice of meat but it must be raw, ground (or finely chopped) and cooked in patty form outdoors over fire. :chef:
C. Wood-fire, gas-fire, pellet- fire, charcoal, lump –all good. :D Indoor frying pan, broiler, toaster oven –all bad. :twisted:
D. Toppings. Toppings go anywhere from the top of the bottom bun to the bottom of the top bun but not on the side as that would be a side which is verboten. As to whats allowed on the burger, “the Sky’s the limit”. Cheese it if you want to. Shroom it if you want too (won’t get my vote :puke: ). Lettuce, pickles, sprouts, mayo, jalps, ketchup, mustard, secret sauce, bbq sauce, cukes, cabbage, onions, guac, crème fresh or additional meats like :spam:, bacon or pulled pork. Whatever ingredient(S) you want on your burger. :chef: Or skip the toppings and go bare if you dare. :oops:
E. Write FATHER’S DAY on the back of a business card and place the card with Father’s Day facing the camera somewhere in the picture of your Burger. :king: Put it in the background, foreground or on top of your Burger. Placement doesn’t matter as long at its there.

The Father’s Day Throw Down runs now through 12:01 AM June 22nd. Polls go up around noon the morning of June 22nd and will run for 24 hours.

Do you have what it takes to Defeat Limey? The man that has taken top honors the past three Throw Downs. If so, I honor your competitive spirit. :salut: Take a picture of you burger masterpiece and email it to me at nospam@ncre.biz" target="_blank" target="_blank" sometime after June 12 but before 1201 AM 22JUN11. For best results, the pic should be 800X600 and in JPG format. If you’re not up to the challenge, then I morn your lack of gusto and reckless abandon. Just send me an email admitting you’re a chicken. :shakin: I’ll post the names of chickens at the bottom of the Poll Post. :roll: :D

One pic that's money. To paraphrase Tom Cruise, show us the MONEY SHOT! 8)

You can post a pictorial of the process after the winner is announced. In fact, we encourage doing just that. :D

With that great of an intro, I feel a little intimidated, but it sure has me hungry for a burger. Getting ideas already going, good luck to all.

I'm down to cook a burger. We should handicap this throwdown and make Limey cook with a soy bean patty. :lol: :lol:

Oh, it is so ON!

I haven't been on here in a long while, and this morning I thought to myself "Self, let's see what the shizzle is happening over on the TX BBQ forum. Maybe there be a throwdown shortly to commence."

Sho nuff, it's for my specialty, the lowly, the humble, the delicious, let's give it a great big old Texas howdy welcome, the burger!

All is indeed right with the world.

Since some folks seem to intimidated about Limey's skill, I heard a rumor that he's going to grill with one hand tied behind his back just to make it fair. :roll: :lol: 8)

Just pick the best slider of the bunch and use that as your model. :wink: :roll: 8)

Now you got me thinking. Should a plate of sliders be allowed? Hmm. Reading the announcement..... Says the "Burger", not burgers. So, got to go with the initial call.

I will allow a pic of burger with the top part of the bun next to the bottom part as I've have 'em served up that way at places you got to pay after you eat (as opposed to before you eat). Think the rational for that is the hot side is hot and the cold side is cold. Don't know if that's true but it doesn't matter as its allowed. Perhaps I'm putting to fine a point on it. :chef:
