Farking Gore and Ecode, hogging all the wins. Actually, I thought I had my third zero sewn up, then I actually got 2 or 3 votes, so you never know. It is hard to win or get a zero. Fortunately, I expect neither.

Then after we see them a few times we get a bit bored again. And I also have observed some REALLY outstanding entries by some regulars (for example, by RTD) that I felt were by far better than anything else, but still didn't win. It can depend on what is said, what else was submitted, the conversations in the threads, the direction the wind is blowing, and I think especially by the initial voters. But no, I really don't have a good explanation.
The numbers in that last post only counted data up to the Fast Food Throwdown, because I do not have polling results loaded in the database for anything after the Fast Food Throwdown. You have entered at least two dishes since then.

I also think that there is a tendency for folks to like certain foods, steak on forks for instance, or ribs, folks vote for ribs a lot. In a simple TD, a well done brisket or burnt ends will always compete well.

Tofu is a hard sell, eggplant can be also.

It was always my dream to win with eggplant, but I don't think that's ever going to happen. Of course someone I know won three times with eggplant, I think just to rub it in.

I'd have to say that Zombies also are a hard sell.

I have a theory that women have a competitive edge when it comes to cooking with eggplant. Men just can't do it. I think they lose some sort of respect by submitting it, or something. I just don't know.

There is a link on the poll (small text) that lets you see the results so far before you have voted.

I wish I could disable it, but there is no option to do so.

I think women have a competitive edge period, if Cowgirl entered, she would win with 8000 votes. She could enter wool and win. If Tish enters that pulled pork in Make it Funky, she will win, I predict it.

I think I'd agree with Bob. Wonder what the probabilities of winning are for women vs. men. That would be too much work to figure out, but I would bet they're vastly different and we're at a huge disadvantage.

We've already proven the wives are always on top. Do we really need to go over that again?

I'm going to go over that again with my wife.

I wish I wouldn't know that. But thanks for the info. Temptation is the devil. It's so much more fun not knowing.

From my perspective:
I cook what I like eating. Turns out comfort food isn't so photogenic, at least not with my limited skills.
So I find myself going outside my normal cook, being more creative.
All do to the Throwdowns.

I look at these just like I look at comp BBQ. As long as I don't place DAL, and I have fun, learn something and grow in my cooking, then it was a successful competition.

There are a lot better cooks and a lot better photographers on here than I could ever hope to be, so there is always room for improvement on my end.
That is why I enter, and suggest that others do the same regardless of the level of skills ( cooking or photography) you may have.

When I vote, I vote with my stomach. Which dish speaks to me.
