I used to enter all the time until some idiot thought it would be a good idea to rip the siding off of his house and repair and paint it

I love the throwdowns, I just haven't had the free time to cook something special lately. Birthday parties on weekend and things like that. Life is always getting in the way of the fun. I'll be back though, more than likely for burger month or burger week or whatever it is.

I'm not sure I'm gonna be able to top that creole burger I made last year though, I can still taste that thing.

Damn...now I farking starving and it's all your fault Jed, you TD whore!!!

Rumor is this is what Gore is planning for the Burger Throwdown.

I think I decided to take a breather from TD's when a Thai entry won the Indian one.

I need more photography oomph though. I can take reasonably good outside pics with my smartphone, but the lighting in my kitchen sucks and doesn't make my plated shots look any better. TD winners/hi vote-getters usually have amazing/stunning plated shots, so this may be the fuel for getting that DSLR I've wanted for a while.

Having said that, I do enjoy cooking for the TD's, and always have a good time. My wife doesn't think there is much point in the TD's given the emphasis on presentation, but I somewhat disagree.

BTW, I think moving this thread to the TD section defeats the purpose of the thread. If its in the TD section, people involved with TD's are most likely to see it and read it vs. folks in QTalk (the target audience).

We still have TDs? I guess I should check that sub-forum more often.

Some of you won't remember me.... I'm Kathy and I entered TDs religiously until about April this year or so. Thought I could make it back for May but no. It's a time thing. When I first started entering TDs last June I was just learning how to smoke and over a few months I made the most startling progress. I surprised myself. I took awful photos and they got better, and better, then I got a new camera..... surprised myself again! If you want to be a better cook or learn to use your camera -- that's a good enough reason to enter weekly or as often as you can. Never mind the theme, don't let special rules stand in your way, nobody else does. If you enter to learn how to cook better or use your camera better (or both like me), the voting is just the frosting.... or lack thereof. I'm coming back in June, look out you Noobes!

Am I the only one that spends more than an hour in snippets taking photos, another hour weeding through and transferring pics to photobucket and another hour and a half posting a cook thread? Add the prep and cook time and posting a TD entry takes up the lion's share of one day. It's the chatty Kathy thing, isn't it?

Forgot to say that making the themes work for what I want to cook is half the fun.....

Your not alone Sister! It's an all day event for me between shopping, cooking, clean-up and photobucket, it's midnight or later when I am drunk enough to sleep, I am sorry I meant ready to sleep.

I have been thinking about this lately. I have gone through a lot of old Throwdown Threads. I personally think there seems to be to much emphasis on the "money shots". It seems to me that the complexity or difficulty of the preparation doesn't influence voters as much as the picture. Like Kathy mentioned it can be an all day affair putting a TD entry together. I have only entered three and they were lots of fun. But my long term participation is doubtful given the facts I have laid out here.
