That was crazy tough. I had it down to 3 this morning while getting this set up, and the final call was not easy.

There is a lot of very good looking food in this Throwdown! I finally decided to go with the picture that screams "Eat me" the loudest, and that was High Q.

It shows up half red in the pic. Like a red film has been placed on half of the lens.

Garyclaw

:wink:Guerry, I'd love to have a wood pile like that.:grin:

That was a tuff, tuff vote. I wanted to eat all of it! These Throwdowns bring out some of the best food I've ever seen. Great job everybody. Had to go with High Q.

I gave it up to High Q on this one. His picture made me salivate the most! Just need some Wang fermented pepper paste and I'd be in heaven.

Well, that's two people that saw it, and three that don't.

I'm not sure what I can do to fix it though, since the image uploaded as I received it, and it is obviously not a problem with the image itself (since some see it normally).

Anyone have any ideas what it could be?

If Gore or Bigabyte had entered, it would have been even tougher as I could not vote for either of them, gotta keep them '0' steady.

Does that include me too!?

You can't be a member of the club until you actually finish with a '0'. You will be welcomed if you do.

Don't worry Phu, you'll always be a zero in our eyes!:biggrin:

Have you been rooting in Brauma's wood pile?:razz:

I don't see the red streak, I don't see a reflection of the photographer in a red shirt, I can't see a Ghost Pig or a penguin. Can someone tell me how to find Brauma's wood pile?:biggrin:

A seriously though decision awaits... Do I go with Big Brother Smoke's tasty shrimp and Asian Salad? High Q's dish looks smokin' hot. Rick has that Chinese-Eyed Walleye working overtime. But in the end Asian food always leaves me hungry so I'm going with Phu cause it looks like his comes with dessert.

Gore

You'll have me to contend with Rick! I'm saving my vote to force a tie!
I've been waiting for the opportunity, but it never plays itself.

Sorry Phube, better luck next time.

Hey Chris, you've got a calendar and coffee table books coming. How about some bumper stickers for the truly elite, something like,

"My son/daughter entered a BBQ Brethren Throwdown and got '0' votes!"

As a voter, I always like to see people voting for themselves. To me, it says the meal didn't suck! Of course, it isn't the most important thing.

I know what you mean,I usually search for the threads where there are more pics of the dishes.
Then (hopefully) you can see what effort and stuph went into the dish.
There's a dessert pie in the pic though....the green one on the left next my drink and other "dessert":wink:

Yes, I cooked all day you got to vote on a side dish... My fault though. I did not specify....

Not that I'm unhappy, because the competition was terrific and this was my first effort.

I can't wait till the next challenge now. My whole family is into it and they were so disappointed for me that I didn't win... We will all work together for the next one!!!!!!

GO BRETHEREN!!!!

So Phu, Is there a preferred method for throw-down posting? I've been posting ingredients, prep, recipes (except this time there were 3 so I skipped it) and an entry pic. I've only entered a couple so far but I'd like to stay on the right side of the fire box:wink:.

Never heard of baumkuchen before but I think it's the same as spekkoek?
Also a layered cake?

Sorry bro',don't think I'm the right guy to answer your question.
This was only my 2nd entry to a throwdown,next time I'll stick with shooting one plate instead of the whole table though.
I just wanted everything in the pic cause it was all (except the Stroh rum:wink:)Asian.

All I'm saying is that I have delivered consistent results. Ask Gore!:biggrin: Aussies pic was hard to pick out. The last pic had the complete dish, but the pics in the middle were much higher quality. I went with the highest quality pic with the plate nearly ready.

It's great fun, believe me. The talent here is awesome and could probably compete with any website out there. I am truely proud of all our Brethren. They produce some very fine food pics.
