I believe bigabyte used photobucket for his entries. Maybe knows what is going on.

I think there is a default upload size in Photobucket that resizes your images to that size for you, in order to save space. I disabled that a few years back. I'm not sure if they still have such an option now or not (they now allow unlimited storage for all users I believe), but you might need to check that out.

Under your profile go to "Account Settings", then go into "Album Settings", and click the link "View Upload Options". You can set the "Web Size" there to a higher value that limits the size used to display on web pages. If you set it to the max, it will use whatever size you uploaded the file as (unless the original is larger of course).

I size my throwdown pr0n to 1,000 pixels wide. Between 800 and 1,000 seems to be a good size for presenting your food.

Good plan... You might consider calling the Nacho Swimps though so no one gets any funny ideas.

Fantastic cook though.

I don't use photobucket, I use picasa, but I imagine it is all the same.
What I do is I have set picasa to a size that i can view well on my screen (a laptop mainly) and then I just right click and copy the url of the photo at that size.

I couldn't find any street food in a jar, so far, so I may miss this throwdown. I really don't want to cook, of I don't have to.

I will keep looking.

SKA BBQ, I can honestly say that your photos are not too small anymore.

I have a 27-inch monitor, and I had to scroll.

Okay, I really liked the way my Puerto Rican Roadside Chicken turned out, but I really didn't do it for this throwdown. I did it because I've been wanting to do it for a long time -- and I got a rotisserie for Christmas. I was hoping to come up with something more exotic for the throwdown.

But, I just booked several days of photoshoots with some big time clients that I have been courting for a long time. I can well exceed my monthly budget this weekend alone. Yeah, fark the throwdown -- and I mean that in the best possible way. I have bills to pay.

So, here's what I gots for ya. It tasted really good, even though it is kind of boring to look at.

Puerto Rican Roadside Chicken

When I was in college, my parents lived in Puerto Rico. My dad's employer paid for me to go down there twice a year. As much as I loved Puerto Rico during winter break, I loved the Cuban influenced food even more.

All around San Juan, mostly outside of town, where tourists never went, there were these roadside trailers with these amazing whole roasted chickens.

I tried to reproduce this treat, without a recipe that I could verify as authentic.

I started with a whole chicken, and a marinade, made with orange and lime juices, dried oregano from my garden, cumin, olive oil, onion, and some garlic that I found online.

After marinading for eight-hours, I gave the bird a quick rinse and dry, and loaded it onto the rotisserie spear thingy.



After about an hour, the bird was cooked, and golden brown, as confirmed by my stealthy grey Thermapen.



After a proper rest, I cut my bird in half, photographed one half, while simultaneously eating the other half. I've never been a multi-tasker, but if you want something badly enough, amazing things happen.

Here is the famous/infamous BBQ Brethren fork shot.



I can't say that I nailed the authentic Puerto Rican roadside taste, but it was close enough, and tasted really good. It was definitely tender and juicy.

I personally think I nailed the fork shot crutch. Have you ever seen a better shot of a plastic fork?

Thanks for looking.
