Arrow BBQ Brethren "Vegetable" Throwdown

Our new category is...

"Vegetables"

Photo courtesy of crossfitoakland.com

...as chosen by Gore, the winner of the Bacon Throwdown!

You can look at this in various ways...

First, this could be your punishment for having such a small number of entries for the most wonderful of all possible categories that could ever possibly be chosen..."Bacon".

OR, maybe this is redemption for the overindulgence caused by having an entire Throwdown dedicated to Bacon, a fresh start down a healthier path basically.

OR, maybe we just want to see some amazing kick-azz ideas from the Brethren on how to make some amazing vegetables on our grills and smokers!

Here are the simple and unchanging list of rules for the BBQ Brethren Throwdown...

1) The dish must be Grilled or Smoked during the cooking process, or feature Grilled or Smoked ingredients in a prominent manner.
2) Entries must be cooked during the current throwdown period ( 12/18 - 12/27 ).
3) All pics (any number) must be submitted by Midnight Central Time on the night of 12/27.
4) Only one picture from one dish will be used for voting, so please specify which one you want used, otherwise I will choose and my decision will be final.
5) If you have any problems with any of the entries, believing them not to be qualified for any reason, please use the ***VOTE*** thread and exercise your power of voting against those entries. Any complaints posted in any Throwdown thread, or directed to me via any other means will be ignored.

The voting will begin Monday 12/28 after I submit the "Vote" thread and will run through Friday 1/1. All votes will be public.

Don't forget the Pot Pie Throwdown is still accepting entries until midnight Sunday night (12/27)!

Our next category will be decided by the winner of the Cajun/Creole Throwdown!

Best of luck and even better eats to all!

As always, the voters have final say on any entry.

I didn't realize bacon was a vegetable. Glad I now know.

Master and I are still eating the remnants of a placemat. Granted, it's the best tasting placemat we've ever eaten, but we've been eating bacon everyday for the last two week's (NTTAWWT), and I think it is time for Master to find a new medium. Master's cardiologist offered a 25% discount if we chose Vegetable Throwdown. We think of it as the BBQ Brethren Throwdown Health Plan.

Ok, I chanced into this one. Here's my entry:



As you can see in the picture, there were grilled carrots, eggplant, things in foil, and more things in a basket under the carrots that you can’t see. As if that weren’t enough, zucchini went on the grill after the eggplant came off.



The mysterious veggies in the grill basket were onions and peppers (a staple around here), and in the foil were some mushrooms simmering away in a mixture of butter, white wine, and hoisin sauce. The eggplant was brushed with EVOO and sprinkled with salt, pepper, granulated garlic, and crushed basil. The zucchini received a trashbag tater treatment (at least as far as being shaken with the spices in a vegetable bag goes) of EVOO, granulated garlic, salt, and pepper, and the carrots were brushed with butter, garlic salt, white wine, and fresh ground pepper.



I won't bore anyone here with the details on the chicken breasts. Please use the last picture for my entry.

A side order of Cajun chicken breast that snuck on the plate. It's Christmas, not Lent...
