Winning photo from the 2009 Week 15 BBQ Brethren "Kabob" Throwdown (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=54585) by thirdeye

...as chosen by Cracklin Jeorge, the winner of the Surf and Turf Throwdown (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=79295)!

Here is 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 ( 3/5 - 3/14 ).
3. All pics (any number) must be submitted by Midnight Central Time on the night of 3/14.
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.
6. By posting your photos, you are granting consent for your photo to be reused for other BBQ Brethren Throwdown related postings or materials.
7. Any joke photos, or photos of past creations you wish to show off must have a disclaimer stating that the photo is not intended to be included in the Vote thread.
8. Only the image from the original post by the person entering the dish will be used in the Vote thread. Any further postings of the same photo by the same person, or by others will not be used.

The voting will begin Monday 3/15 after I submit the "Vote" thread and will run through Friday 3/19. All votes will be public.

Don't forget, you can still enter the Curry (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=79215) Throwdown until Sunday night 3/7 by midnight Central time.

Best of luck and even better eats to all!

Pineapple-Pork Mandarin Kebabs.

Always looking for different ways to use up St Louis spare trims so I de-boned and cleaned 2 Ribs worth, cut into squares and skewered folded over. Marinated in Sesame Ginger Soy for 3 hours and cooked 350 direct on firewire skewers.

Submitted for your review. Gotta work on the photography.

Those are some nice looking K'babs! The only thing wrong with them is I can't taste them!

Oh this is too bad. I have a basting sauce that is out of this world. I mean it... but this is a picture show. There will be some GREAT looking entries in here I bet.

Such saddness that I cannot compete. In fact, I think I am gonna do this for the family this weekend.. make the sauce that is.

Make a funky video on how to prepare it, then post some stills.:biggrin: Heck, nothing wrong with joining the Zero's Club if it turns out awful, we could all use the company.

Meal on a stick, simple and quick.

I stabbed some chunks of filet-o-beef, sea scallops, shrimp and assorted veggies today and headed out into the sunshine.

Here are the kebabs that I made for tonight's dinner.

Fresh bratwurst + Vidalia Onions + green, yellow, orange and red bell peppers and a little olive oil and Yardbird rub = Bratwurst Kebabs. I grilled them in Eggbert until the brat pieces were done and the veggies were soft.

Is Rick tempting fate again? Is Chris second-guessing himself? Tune in next week for another exciting voting episode of "BBQ Throwdown."

I love the grill shot too, but I think the plate shot looks just that much more tasty!

Wasn't that the same plot line that was on "As The Spit Turns" last week?

It's all looking good. I got these going for tomorrow I couldn’t make up my mind on what kind I wanted to do on this one, but I’ve always thought that variety is the spice of life so I’m doing kebabs three ways. BTW the Hennessy in the back ground acted as an inspirational consultant.

I marinaded these beef kabobs in teriyaki sauce and then sprinkled sesame seeds on them before grilling. I served them with fried rice, fried pineapple, and a teppanyaki mustard dipping sauce.

No plated pics cause these were eaten right off the grill.

Tell ya what. I'm not gonna vote for ya. It's not because I like or don't like you or anything, I just think I like someone else's kabobs better this time around. We can still be friends though.:becky:

I (Gore) am submitting shish-kebabs from the recipe my mum used to make when I was just a wee little orphan. Master has made modifications, but all of us still use some variation. I like to use sirloin or flap steak (used here) because it takes this marinade very nicely. Marinade is (all measurements approximate)
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 T mustard powder
1 t pepper
~10 cloves garlic (mushed)
1 huge chunk ginger grated
1/4-1/2 cup olive oil (optional)

http://i613.photobucket.com/albums/tt211/gvideen/kebab/IMG_5026.jpg

This is usually best when it is marinaded overnight. Generally, I prefer to grill the vegetables separately. Here is a serving for one of the hungrier orphans:

MODS, please close this thread.

Usually, when there is no suggestions as to what picture I should use, I look at the last picture they post in the thread and use it unless a picture above it really stands out.

This time this method bit my ass. I picked the last pic in Alan In Ga's post, which shows the meat uncooked. This has probably affected the results.

I will post a new VOTE thread shortly.
