This one was very tough. I would happily devour any of these. However, the "closet vegetarian" in me had a total mouth orgasm over that Ratatouille Tart. Yeah, I like veggies, even had Baba Ghanoush at dinner. Forgive me Brethren!

Pork Smoker's pic did it for me. I could feel the little bit of snap and bite in those veggies and the colors just popped!!!

I had to vote for Gore's well executed use of parsley for garnish.

Whoa, this Throwdown completely slipped by me. I gotta stop working so much......

This was a hard one for sure. Pork Smoker got my vote for that medley of veggies.

Gore gets an E for effort, I particularly liked the cold smoked parsley. Ipls3355's bacon wrapped pickle might be a cool alternative to deep fried pickles, I'm going to try that.

And I thought I would never vote for a Gore. That roast was perfectly cooked.

Thanks, the garnish also was perfectly cooked. Since this throwdown is almost over I'd like to thank thirdeye for his posting before Christmas with pics. Roast was on at about 225* until 124* (about 4 hours), then did a sear after a 20 minute rest. I didn't want to mention this before because this was about the PARSLEY and I didn't want to distract attention from the PARSLEY that was delicious and smoked to perfection.

Oh, and sounds like Chris is a Vegan!

Only 8 hours left to vote on this one folks! It's been pretty close the whole way between ecode and Pork Smoker so far. Who will be crowned Vegetable champion? We'll know in another 8 hours.
