...as chosen by Meat Burner, the winner of the Pot Pie Throwdown (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=75896)!

Here are the simple and unchanging list of rules for the BBQ Brethren Throwdown...

1) The dish must be Grilled or Smoked during the cooking process, or feature Grilled or Smoked ingredients in a prominent manner.
2) Entries must be cooked during the current throwdown period ( 1/15 - 1/24 ).
3) All pics (any number) must be submitted by Midnight Central Time on the night of 1/24.
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 Monday 1/25 after I submit the "Vote" thread and will run through Friday 1/29. All votes will be public.

Don't forget, you can still enter the I'd Never Eat That! (Innards) (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=75493) Throwdown until Sunday night 1/17 by midnight Central time.

Our next category will be decided by the winner of the Vegetable Throwdown (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=75941)!

Best of luck and even better eats to all!

I wish I had more time this weekend to do a bacon implosion, and then an Arnold Ziffle Special! I may have to work out a couple of extra hours.

This Throwdown is indeed a candidate for the 2011 BBQ Brethren Throwdown Calendar (so long as there is demand for it when that time comes of course). This will be the 4th eligible Throwdown for that future calendar, starting with Pot Pies, then Vegetables, I'd Never Eat That (Innards), and now this one.:cool:

Plowboy mentioned a cookbook and I thought that was a great idea. A coffee table book may be even better because all we would need to do is fill it with the scrumptious photos and small blurbs, seems easier than putting together a cookbook.

I should not be surprised there are so many requests for these things considering how amazing they photos are that are posted each week, but I am a little surprised. Once orders for calendars come in it should be apparent how far this could go. I'll look into some publishing options and see how feasible a book would be, be it a coffee table book or a cookbook (or maybe even both), and if it seems possible, I am all for it.

Next is a delmonico steak, seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled at 700*. Midway through I brushed on a bit of chipotle and adobo puree.

Finally, I paired it with a pile of eggs mixed with some salsa verde, topped with a bit of fresh salsa. Here's my official entry:

Good heavens! You may have just uncovered the latest health food fad!

I can see BBQ Granola now. Sweetened with brown sugar or maple syrup, some cayenne for a slight kick...

Rick's Tropical Delight
01-18-2010, 11:34 AM
here's the recipe from the artisan bread in five minutes a day book:

mix together:
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (must be real, not imitation!)
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt

add to:
4 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup sesame seeds
3/4 cup chopped pecans or other nuts
3/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

mix well and bake at 350 for 30 minutes stirring often till golden brown

add after baking:
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried cherries, chopped dried apricots, or dried cranberries (or a combination)

bigabyte
01-18-2010, 12:01 PM
I want some BBQ granola now. Oats-check. Almonds-check. Coconut, sesame seeds, or any other seeds, negative. Raisins-check.

I'm thinking maple syrup/brown sugar, cayenne, a little onion and garlic, perhaps a teensy wooster-booster even? Basically like smoked nuts...only granola...

Rick's Tropical Delight
01-18-2010, 12:12 PM
onion, garlic, cayenne? nope, it's granola, man, not an omelet. :biggrin:

Well I decided I'd try my hand at this breakfast thing. I smoked some tomatoes (got the idea from tommiegunnz) and sausage for an omelet.

36033
tomatoes were smoked skinless for two hours and turned real good, even better after I added a little salt

36034
I first sauted some onions then added some sausage and lightly browned. Then I put them in the smoker for a couple hours.

36035
This is my competition picture.

01-18-2010, 10:43 PM
We will throw one here. Smoked a pork belly this week for the first time. We have done BBB a lot but this was even better. Did a fatty and home made sausage on the drum. Super sweet daughter got us a waffle maker for Christmas so had to make home made waffles. Gawd these are good!. Sliced some pineapple to grill on top of the waffles. Fatty infused gravy in the cast iron. Fried taters in the cast iron on the Weber. And then a couple pics of the breakfast. Good ol' midwest breakfast the brethren have had a big hand in making. Thanks everyone for all the help.

High Q
01-23-2010, 10:03 PM
So I says to my boys, I say “Boys! how are we going to win this breakfast throwdown thing?!” And my boys say, “Daddy! how is anybody, and I mean anybody, going to win a breakfast throwdown without cooking a fatty?” And I says “…boys! you know there are going to be a hundred old fellas turn in fattys like you’ve never seen!” and then my boy (the smart one) says “Daddy?! why don’t you throwdown a sausage and cheese and green chili fatty kolache and see how that fixes ‘em”. And I says [wiping a tear from my eye], “I love you son”

We got the fatty ready to roll.

http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n228/sipes2/DSC_0284.jpg

Here’s a picture of the fatty getting ready to hit the smoker. We had to keep them skinny in order to wrap them in the kolache dough.

http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n228/sipes2/DSC_0286.jpg

Here’s the fattys (skinnys) resting and ready for the dough.

http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n228/sipes2/DSC_0292.jpg

And my lovely daughter showing off the kolache dough as its rising.

http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n228/sipes2/DSC_0287.jpg

A sausage meets its resting place.

http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n228/sipes2/DSC_0293.jpg

So while I’m getting ready to throw the kolaches in the oven, my other boy (the really smart one) says “Daddy?! how you going to win a breakfast BBQ throwdown with the dad gum oven, isn't this a bbq contest?” and I says “Boy!, mind your business”. Then my other boy (the one that can’t talk yet) says to me “ba, ba, ba, pssssht” and I knew he was right. So, I fired up the dutch oven ‘cause we was rolling ‘old school’ for the breakfast throwdown and if we're going to win it, we're going to win it with fire.

So what you got under that lid mister?

http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n228/sipes2/DSC_0297.jpg

And I says to them boys and my precious girl, “kids! I think we hit the jackpot!”.

High Q
01-23-2010, 11:34 PM
G - The recipe that I used is pretty similar to the one found here: http://www.recipezaar.com/Homemade-Sausage-Kolaches-37793

The dough is pretty forgiving. I let it rise twice before I wrap the sausages. The next time I try it, I am going to wrap the sausage after the first rise and let it rise the 2nd time with the sausage in the dough. The version I cooked tonight came out nice and light but I would like to see the effect of changing the sequence.

A couple of other tips I discovered: I recommend that you butter the rolls generously, particulary if you are going to cook them in a dutch oven. I must have missed one and it didn't brown much at all without the butter. If you are going to use a fatty for the sausage, keep it skinny - something about the same size as typical sausage link. If you have any leftover, they will freeze just fine.

I just notied your plate Gary! I love it!

I"m tellin ya ya Boat, those Steelhead can be good when handled properly.

I agree! I make stuffed steelhead once in a while when I get a nice one around 8 pounds or so. I clean the fish including the head, coat the inside with herbs, salt and pepper then stuff it with mushroom and onion rice pilaf and some butter then wrap the whole thing in foil and cook it indirect on the grill until the fish is done and the rice is hot. Very good!

Master and I prepared a typical weekend breakfast. Master made some bread that I grilled to make toast. The steak and eggs rest on a bed of grated potatoes.


Gore? Nothing molded out of bacon? I expected a replica of a chicken or something like that :-D

Nice breakast, bro!

Here is my entry, though I think it pales in comparrison to some already entered. It was fun though...

Oh sure... Now I have to drool over it three times! :-D

Mixed a couple of finley chopped chipotles and about one tbs of half and half in with the eggs and from there it was some chopped onion, mater, cilantro, pepperoni, and japs on the inside along with LOTS of cheese. A cup o' joe and some dark rye with buddddda and orange marmalade.
Good stuff. Sure was nice to be outside on a crispt morning drinking a cup of coffee, hearing the back neighbor running his leaf blower :roll: and drowning out the sound of the birds chirping. Actually, he's getting ready for the playoff games later on.

Then onto the griddle. Egg was 400. Took about 2-3 min each side.

Started with a Pork Chop, Eggs, Hash-browns and Bread.

Maybe next time. Super easy. You need a cast iron griddle for your egg.

Tried something new today... I cooked a JD Maple fatty in the Egg and let it cool. Then I chopped it and also chopped some red and green bell pepper, red onions and plum tomatoes. I preheated my 12" cast iron pan in the Egg at 375 and sauted the chopped fatty and veggies for 10 minutes or so. Then I poured in a mixture of 10 beaten eggs, 1/2 cup milk, one cup of shredded cheddar and jack cheese and herbs and cooked it until the eggs were set and the top was browned (about an hour). I served it with hash browns.

Dave

No Dave, I am definitely flying below Myron's radar, muffin pan and all.
or Should I say...

Hail No! I don't nee no dang permission from Myron or any other dang body to use a dang muffin pan. I been using a dang muffin pan for 20 dang years! If Myron wants to step-up and be a serious Dang muffin maker then bring it but this ain't no dang disco. Cooking muffins is dang work so if he's just going to show up for the dang beer and a party then he should stay home on the dang couch. Now if Lee Ann wants to sample my muffins, I'm sure we could make arrangements. :biggrin:
