Great entries all, another tough vote. But there was something about that bacon weave that was oddly compelling...

I was all set to vote for Jim's panko-encrusted entry and then Jeep threw a monkey-wrench into things, submitting a bacon-wrapped fish -- brilliant! Those two are absolutely fabulously delicious looking. They also were kind enough to take the pics so that the fish wasn't looking me in the eyes while I was thinking of eating it. I know you guys are going to tell me that the eyes are the tastiest part or that the teeth are crunchy, but I don't want to think about those things while I'm trying to enjoy my meal, and I don't like them giving me a raspberry while I'm eating either!

If you don't vote for me I am going to send you a whole bunch of fish heads with the eyes all lookin at you.

On second thought, I should not put ecode through something like that. Your off the hook.

This was a difficult vote for me. I had to eliminate by factors. Was the whole fish (yes, eyes and all) featured in the presentation? Did the entry sound and look appetizing? Was the photography up to snuff?
In the end I had to go with Rob. That was one exquisite entry.

Just for the record, I did not actually succumb to Jim's wild threats, although I don't know if I'd like to meet him in a dark restaurant either, especially armed with Larry's fish. It just occurred to me that not only do these fish have heads and guts, but many of them also have BONES! Now it appears that Jim was smart enough to pick out one that didn't have bones, but I can see them in some of the other pictures and also see that Jeep's bacon-wrapped fish also has BONES. Now I can imagine that bacon does wonderful things to the fish, but picking fish bones out of my bacon is something I don't want to dream about tonight. Some of those fish heads are scary enough already. I'm sure glad the hatcheries around here only raise boneless, headless, skinless, gutless fish. I just love Genetic Engineers! Bless you all!

Oh, and Jim, please send all your future fish heads to Rob.

Nope, send 'em to me!

BUT SERIOUSLY GORE!!!! I for one am surprised.

For one so named as yourself, I would have had no idea that a man capable of engineering Scrog, would have been remotely put off by a little fishy head, fishy eyes, and little fishy guts...

On the contrary, I thought you'd haul out the knives , surgical devices of dubious design , instuments of fishy torture... and have the time of your life creating some multi-headed, multi-eyed monstrous fishy calmity that you would then wrestle onto a whole hog cooker and slow bake to death while the thing was banging on the inside trying to get out!.

You would present this in COOKING WITH THE MASTER Episode ##. Ninja Squirrel and Smokey Al at your side, perhaps even a cameo from Scrog, perhaps dancing on top of the cooker as the montrosity inside fights to escape!

Then, on the serving platter later.. the grotesque result, deliciously garnished for our viewing pleasure... a plate of guts and a bowl of slops on the side, and NINJA SQUIRREL expertly slicing the flesh from the bones in tiny... WAFFER... THIN... peices... to the delerious applause of all! .

Then loving smiles and hugs all round from your 2 beautiful, (but now short haired) little girls, as they look into the camera and say "Thanks Dad! That was the best meal we EVER had!!!"

Awww shucks, now I'm shedding a tear!

So Gore... The road to recovery starts with the BACON TD. Now stand up Brudder and show us what you're made of!.. THAT's THE STUFF!... by the end of the year, we'll have you butchering whole Marlin and bleeding your own pigs again... just like old times...

I Love you Brudder... I know you can do it!

Cheers!

Bill

Your are very observant!!! These fish do have bones!! And as I said before, bacon wrapped or not, it was a PITA eating around them bones!!

Blue-You got my vote! Something about everything being simple?
