Default My Big Fat Greek Cheese Wheel

For my Throwdown entry I present to you the Big Fat Greek Cheese Wheel. The complete thread can be found HERE.

First I made a 2 1/2 lb. 12" greek lamb burger with shallots, garlic, fresh thyme, rosemary, oregano, black pepper, and salt. I smoked it at 225F for 90 minutes with olive wood chunks.


Next I cut a 1kg (2.2 lb) 12" brie wheel in half with dental floss.



On top of the halved brie I added the lamb burger and smoked thin Bosc pear slices.



Next I wrapped all in a puff pastry, eggwashed, and put on a 400F grill indirect.



It came out beautifully golden brown and soft. It was melty, rich and smokey good. The lamb, cheese, and grilled fruit complemented each other perfectly. We served it with grilled apricots, grilled artichokes with lemon aioli, and grilled lemon and rosemary Greek potatoes.


Throwdown Shot.

Between Rob and Larry I feel a Zero club membership coming on for my entry... Rob, I think you'll give Larry a run for his money with that entry. Fan-farking-tastic!

OK, but you're bunking next to Guerry. He snores.

Well, I saw Larry's entry and thought it'd be Zero's Club for everyone else... Then SmokeJumper chimed in. We have some SERIOUS talent here Brethren! No entry from me this week!

I'm gonna watch the battle!

Cheers!

Bill

Hopefully this will still be accepted as the vote thread isn't up yet.

If not well I'm a dumb farker for not submitting it earlier.
(In my defense it's a long weekend here and it feels like a Sunday)

I present to you the Fat Mac:

Wow Larry and SmokeJumper, those look awesome. It looks like all I really need to do is start cooking better food, presenting it better, and taking better pictures. Other than those minor details, I'm right there . Is it too late to withdraw my entry?

Is this absentee balloting or does a poll get set up?

Polls have gone up the Monday after the vote ends almost without fail since I've been paying attention. Chris hasn't been on site since Friday which is unusual indeed.

We will just have to be patient I suppose. Chris did say he was busy. I awlays thought that running the TD's was a pretty big effort.
