Default Backyard Throwdown

I’m looking to have a throw down in my backyard. Just wondering if anyone has done this before and what should be the rules. It will be I and two other buddies of mine. I thought Brisket, Ribs and Wings would make a great battle. Looking forward to your suggestions. I’m planning to host it on the weekend before or after Labor Day.

More than happy to judge for you mate, only cost beer and fare.
I can bring a sleeping bag. (can't seem to wake her up, )

Sounds great wish I could afford that ticket. Guess I will have to send you pics instead.

I think it would be fun to throw a curve ball into the mix - along with the normal grilling fare you might add something off the wall to cook like tofu or frog legs. IMHO it will show a real control of the grill and creativity for the winner.

I like that show "Chopped" on Food Network and in the grilling one they threw several off the wall things that ended up looking pretty good.

If your having some guests to your party replace the wings with an appetizer category that way you could have a well rounded appetizer platter for the guests with possibly:wings, Moinks, ABTs etc..

Absolutely - to keep things fair since you would know the mystery category and they wouldn't, you could get one person worth of three different things, and let the other two pick first, and you get the third.

"Lamb chops/ Frog legs / beef tongue" or something.

Just make it so everything is a "double blind" judging by your guests and you will have a good, fun, and fair result. That way the server and the "judge" (taster) won't know whose product is whose. It's scientific ya'll!

What I can do is have the guest bring a mystery meat. so none of us will know.
