Default "Other" Category

I'm cooking in a friendly lake community competition this weekend. (30 teams) There is an "other" category in which I've cooked salmon in the past and done well with. But everyone does salmon, so I'm looking for something else to wow the novice judges with. Any suggestions??

Not beef or pork! I'm never upset when I get bacon-wrapped shrimp. Sausage is good too. If it doesn't have to be meat, a stuffed baked potato is more than welcome!

If it is after the meat categories some carbohydrates are a welcome switch. Keith

A really good Bloody Mary! Then again, at some of the contests 'round here, we have Margarita's (category) on Friday night and Bloody Mary's on Saturday morning.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

Anything shrimp or anything wrapped in bacon. Combine the 2 for a great "other" entry.

These are always a crowd fav. Bacon wrapped chicken thighs filled with Colby jack and jalapenos. Tenderize some boneless thighs so they are nice and evenly flat. Place 4 or 5 strips of thin bacon in a layer in a bowl, lay the chicken over the bacon, add the cheese and a few jalapenos, and then wrap the bacon back over everything (the bowl makes them perfectly round). Smoke for 45 min or so and then finish on a hot grill to crisp the bacon. These are killer but admittedly not my recipe (Diners and Drive Ins- I think). Good luck!

I've been off the grid for a few days and missed all of the great input. I've decided to go with raspberry/chipotle glazed frog legs smoked with a kiss of cherry. I figured I would step WAAAAY outside my comfort zone. This'll be interesting.
