Do I think I came up with an amazing idea? You bet I do. Do I think I'm going to win? Nope, I don't. It was about coming up with flavors and ideas and challenging myself.

Give it a try...

Exactly, and the both of you have submitted entries that I would have thought would win, and I was very surprised one of my wins even got a vote (I liked the entry but there were so many better choices that TD IMO). I never think about winning. Not the point. I like having my imagination stretched, especially when I have to re-think an idea when someone beats me to a post. Which both these gentlemen have done BTW.

This is a Throwdown thread, no apologies necessary. The ultimate reward is to win. Or get a legitimate Zero. Neither of which I have been able to acheive.

Oh, and you aren't alone in your dislike for cats.

I hate it when you change the rules in the middle. I would have used dough in a box instead of a can. But my entry is cooking right now. Can't wait to see Sharon's reaction when she gets home.

Bill good luck with the fishin.

I made that change for people that cannot get 'dough in a tube', which apparently is limited to people who live in Canada. 'Dough in a tube' is the point of the challenge.

Default Pie in a Pot

For me this was a hard one. I don't get along with dough very well. In fact the very first success I had was with Ecode's buns.

I got a cast iron pot for XMAS and after seasoning it, I have been itching to use it. For me, this is a first time ever for this kind of meal.

Here is a pic of most of the ingredients cause I always wing it with something new.



Chicken, dough in a can, limes, peanuts, mushrooms, and andouille sausage. I thought that would be good to start with.

The day before, I smoked two chickens. Here they are, prepped and cooked.





About three hours on the WSM, rubbed with yardbird, and Mesquite for flavor.

Someday I am going to enter a comp and use sliced breast, cause this bird was tender and juicy.

OK back to the Pie. I am not allowed to eat nuts, so I ground them up as fine as I could with the mortor & pestal. I think that is better than using a machine because it keeps the oil in the mix.



I put one can of dough in the bottom of the pot. Need to figure a better way to do that.



Then I sliced the andouille and covered the dough. Then a nice thick layer of smoked chicken, mushrooms, and the ground peanuts. Then squeezed the juice of one lime over that.

Hmmmm? need to do something here or I'm in trouble. EGGS!! That will hold it together. I used six eggs with some milk and just dumped it in. That should work.



Now to cover it. I took the second can of dough and this time I put it in a ball and tried to roll it out with a pin. That was not perfect, but at least it seemed to be the same thickness all over. Here it is.



I had some coals ready on the Performer, so I move them out to the outer edges and put the CI pot in the center and closed the lid. Fast forward 45 minutes.



Golden brown.

About this time Sharon walked in the door and wanted to know what I was cooking. I told her it was a throwdown dinner. To my surprise, she thought it was kind of different. It seems she likes it when I surprise her with a new dish. Are you ready for this?

Chris, please use this pic.




The pie came right out of the new pot, no sticking!

I could have taken it off the fire just a little sooner, but this was delish. The nuts gave it just a little crunch and there was just a hint of the lime. Of course the andouille and smoked chicken blended perfectly.

I had fun, learned something, and we had a great dinner too.

Hope I win!
