Default For the noobs... your best TD entry

Since freespool asked us what we think makes a good TD entry, why not post a few of our favorite entries up up.

I think my best entry ever was for the Caveman TD -- a TD I wasn't even planning to enter. Here it is...

Okay, I wasn't planning to enter this TD, because I couldn't think of anything creative to do directly on coals. But, I wanted to do something for Moose, and what do you know, I had a lot of fun making this TD entry, and it tasted dayum good, too.

I started by procuring a nice, locally raised T-Bone. I can't show pr0n, because that would be evidence.

I then assembled a caveman mortar and pestle from things in my backyard, to grind up some peppercorns and pink salt that I gathered -- cavemen were both hunters and gatherers.

Then, if figured I would need tongs to turn my steak, so I cut a green limb from a Live Oak tree, and used a sharp object to make some tongs.

I knew we were allowed to use modern enclosures and grates for this TD, but I was in caveman mode, so I built my fire right on the ground -- actually the stone walkway in my backyard. Upon that, I laid my meat.

I cooked it to a caveman standard medium rare, tossed it on a slab of stone, and somehow took a picture of it, even though cameras don't yet exist. The caveman fork shot crutch, however, does exist, so I took full advantage of that, since I don't have a cute kid to dress up and pose with a pony.

BTW, it was farking awesome, and I'm not usually a T-Bone fan.

Oh, I forgot to say up front... this is my entry into this throwdown, bigabyte.

It's interesting that some of my better entries (At least to me, anyway) were not winners, with the exception of my last Taco throwdown win:

I also won the "Fast Food TD" with this, another taco entry:

Incidentally, I have won THREE Throwdowns with food that included tortillas of some kind. Go figure...

This most recent entry, and which still is under consideration in the Sammich TD, I feel is one of my best yet:

And I know this is straying a bit from topic, but this was my entry in the burger TD a few years back that landed me my first zero, and what an utter zero it was! I'm sharing this because it demonstrates a major improvement in photography skills and food staging:

Moose... I think a lot of your wins are very self explanitory. You use fresh ingredients, are a great chef and take fantastic pics.

Plus it doesn't hurt that you specialize in "Tacos" in a largely male dominated DB.
