Cool 2010 Memorial Day Weekend BBQ Brethren Throwdown

While Memorial Day has very somber roots (see here), this weekend also coincides with what many consider to be the start of summer. Most of the kids are out for summer break around this time, the pools start to open, the busy season starts for all those summer vacation spots.

Most everyone enjoys some form of BBQ during the Memorial Day weekend, and this thread is for everyone to share the BBQ they create over the weekend. I would like for this thread to be considered a place for anyone and everyone to share their BBQ as if they were all together at a bash this weekend.

However, since this is a Throwdown, there will still be a vote on the entries, and a winning entry will be determined. And for the first time ever, the winner of this particular Throwdown will receive the first ever BBQ Throwdown Prize! A copy of the book "Savage BBQ" by Andrew Warnes. This book was donated to the Throwdown cause as a prize by our fellow brethren CarbonToe! He actually shipped this book to me, all the way across that great big pond, just so I could give it away as a prize. For that, I would like to thank CarbonToe!

Because this is a bash-style Throwdown of shared food, the rules for this Throwdown will be a little different from our usual Throwdown rules. Rules that have a significant change from the normal rules are highlighted in BOLD.

These are the rules for the 2010 Memorial Day Weekend BBQ Brethren Throwdown:

1. This is an open category, meaning any type of BBQ food will be accepted (see Rule 2).
2. The item must be Grilled or Smoked during the cooking process, or feature Grilled or Smoked ingredients in a prominent manner.
3. Submitted dishes must be cooked between Friday 5/28 and Monday 5/31.
4. All pics (any number) must be submitted by Midnight Central Time on 6/1 (an extra day is being allowed for those who will be out of town).
5. You can make multiple entries into this Throwdown if you like. Just like at a bash, I would not expect people to share only one dish, but any number of dishes they would like to share.
6. You are allowed to touch up your photos for clarity, or to add the dish/item to a more interesting background if you like.
7. By posting your photos, you are granting consent for your photo to be reused for other BBQ Brethren related postings or materials.
8. 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.
9. If you have any problems with any of the entries, believing them not to be qualified for any reason, DO NOT COMPLAIN TO ME! Instead, 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.
10. If I find an entry to have violated these simple rules, I reserve the right to disqualify that entry.
11. As at any neighborhood block party, the kids are present and part of the festivities, so please keep your posts family friendly.
12. Since this is a virtual online bash, I expect everyone to have fun, but also remember there are kids around. Anyone caught not having fun will be asked to leave until they are fun again.
