This week is an open category. You can cook anything you like so long as it adheres to the rules.

Here is the simple and unchanging list of rules for the BBQ Brethren Throwdown which we follow every week!

1) The item must be either Grilled or Smoked.
2) Entries must be cooked during the current throwdown week ( 5/4 - 5/10 ).
3) All pics (any number) must be submitted by 9pm Central on 5/11.
4) Only one picture from one dish will be used for voting, so please specify which one you want used, otherwise I will choose and my decision will be final.
5) If you have any problems with any of the entries, believing them not to be qualified for any reason, please use the ***VOTE*** thread and exercise your power of voting against those entries. Any complaints posted in any Throwdown thread, or directed to me via any other means will be ignored.

The voting will begin by Tuesday 5/12 after I submit the "Vote" thread and voting will close on Sunday 5/17. All votes will be public.

Next weeks category will be decided by the winner of the Beans throwdown, thirdeye!

Best of luck and even better eats to all!

Excellent... cooked this on the 4th so I guess I can use it :) My first ever throwdown entry.

Cheese filled Fattie wrapped in a Bacon wave and rolled in dark brown sugar before being smoked with a mix of mostly Cherry with a bit of Hickory thrown in.

I haven't submitted anything for a few weeks, but thought I would simply because this was something different for our house.

I found Johnsonville Brat Patties at the local Safeway. I had not seen them before. They are already in quarter pound patties, so I figured what the heck, let's have some Brat Burgers! The top one is my entry, the others are in case you missed my thread on these.

Well, the plan was to make BCC's for my Compadre since he's off to Glynco, GA for US Customs training................I COULDN'T FIND ANY WHOLE FRYERS TO SAVE MY ARSE!!! Matter of fact Wally's didn't even have any fricken tomatoes either............WTF. Can't wait till my mater plants kick in. So I went with plant B........Sexy Thighs and Legs!!:twisted: SLow and Low for 2.5 hours, and gave them a little bit of Pappy's and beerBQue sauce glaze. Best damn bird I've made. The compliments were awesome. Every piece was dripping with juice and flavor.

Oh it did not all make it off of the cutting board... Jack, Ian and I all were eating chunks and slices of both bacon and the meatloaf off of the cutting board. Now granted, we did a few shots of before hand, and had some beers, but eh, the grub was delicious!

Finished plate with garlic mashed potatoes, grilled lemon-buttered grilled asparagus, and honey-brown sugar glazed baby carrots. Was mighty good.

It's been a while since I've cooked anything worthy of an entry but today's cook just might be.

http://i351.photobucket.com/albums/q451/2buckets2/dscf1255.jpg

3# Ribeye roast (bone in) seasoned with black pepper, sea salt and Jim Baldridge's "Secret Seasoning." Thrown on the grill for a fast sear before hitting the WSM.

http://i351.photobucket.com/albums/q451/2buckets2/dscf1259.jpg

I put it in the WSM at 11:30 am and left to take the Mrs. & kids out to lunch a few miles away. We got home 2 1/2 hours later and it was up to 154 internal. I pulled it immediately, did not foil, and let it rest for a few minutes.
http://i351.photobucket.com/albums/q451/2buckets2/dscf1261.jpg

It wasn't quite as rare as we would have preferred but after slicing, it could be cut with a fork.
Please use this one for my entry.

Grilled skirt steak with chimichurri suace and grilled asparagus. Overall, it was a good mothers day dinner.

Skirt steak on the Weber OTS

http://i727.photobucket.com/albums/ww279/bproffer/DSC01739-1.jpg
Aparagus on the UDS turned grill. I sorta christened the UDS with the Asparagus. I threw in 10lbs of Royal Oak lump Saturday night @ approx 5pm to season the UDS. After a few hours at 350, I closed the vents down and got the temps to stabilize at 220-230 for the remainder of the night. All day today, it has been chugging along. So at 5pm, I open all the vents, shake off the ash and decide to use the UDS to grill the Asparagus, 24 hours after I started the UDS! Awesome!!!!

Yep, it also makes taking the wrapper off easier. I also do Meatloaf the same way.
Make it up and Freeze it till I'm ready for some loaf and then Smoke it Frozen.
