4th of July Throwdown Announcement!

Postby TX1911 » Sun Jun 04, 2017 9:25 am

Finished one, let's start another! Given the holiday, I looked into some traditional meats that were consumed around the time of the American Revolution. One thing in particular stuck out to me.

Pork had been a food taboo among northern Britons and the primary meat had been sheep. In the American colonies the raising of sheep was not as efficient and mutton was therefore replaced with pork.

So, a pork throwdown it is!

Here are the rules:
- This is a BBQ forum, so the product must be cooked over some sort of fire. That can be gas, pellets, wood, charcoal....you get the idea.
- The product must be pork. Ribs, loins, chops, hams, butts, whole hogs (I'm lookin' at you Russ!)
- One entry per member.
- To ensure the integrity of the contest, you have a choice. Somewhere in the picture must be a card or slip of paper that says "4th of July Throwdown 2017", OR you can include the Betsy Ross Flag:

- Presentation will be key. You can include anything on the plate, to include sides, if you'd like, but the voting SHOULD be based upon the meat.
- Entries must be emailed to tbbqfthrowdown@gmail.com no later than midnight, central time on Saturday, July 8

Personally, I'd love nothing more than to see 30 entries on this one. So, I'm upping the prizes for the winner. The winner of this throwdown will receive two 10 oz RTIC tumblers, and a large amount of SuckleBusters gear from me. There is the chance I will add to this as we get closer, but that will be determined by participation.

Post any questions you have here and I'll answer them!

Also, if you happen to be the winning submission and the prizes aren't quite your thing, let me know we can find something that is.

Glad this thread came up today!

Put some thought into it, and, if we reach 10 valid entries for this throwdown, IN ADDITION to the prizes already listed, I will be adding in a brand new 10" Granton-edge slicing knife.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Well, not "that" as in the knife, just the idea.

Ah you know what I meant.

Start cookin'!
