As we know, size does matter....

Well, it's official now. The results are in for the "Skewered" Throwdown https://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/s...d.php?t=278649

I thought that with only 4 entries, I stood a pretty good chance.
But Noooooooooooo!!!! I got the Golden Goose Egg.
I accept the fact that sudsandswine blew us all out of the water. But out of 55 votes I couldn't manage to get even one. Not one! Really?


Maybe I need to figure out how to post bigger pics. (I've heard that size DOES matter).
Or maybe I jinxed myself with this post:

Seriously though my hat goes off to SMOKE FREAK and LYU370 as well as sudsandswine for their delicious looking entries. All three were clearly superior to mine. Heck, I didn't even vote for my own entry because I didn't think it measured up.
I don't recall how many TDs I've entered but I've won 2 and got 2 Goose Eggs.

I guess I'll keep trying. I'm kinda hooked.

I've had a handful or two of goose eggs myself it happens I participate in throwdowns because it keeps cooking interesting for me and forces me to cook/do things I otherwise might not have. Getting votes is just a bonus.

Just a bit of constructive criticism for your skewered pic - it appeared the part of the food you wanted to make the focus of your picture (the closest to the camera) was out of focus. Since nobody can taste, touch, or smell your food (which I'm sure was great), it's all about the pic...my kitchen and cooking area have terrible lighting so getting a decent picture is something I always struggle with. I actually used a flashlight held high above my grill to get my skewered pic. I'm sure my neighbors think I'm crazy, for many reasons.

You're right. It was out of focus.
Thanks for the helpful criticism.

And I know exactly what you mean about the neighbors. Mine think the same thing.

Default Another Throwdown, Another Goose Egg







It is with great pride that I announce that I have once again earned the high honor of being included in this elite group.


Mine was among the many excellent entries in the April Special "Finger Foods" Throw Down to qualify for the highly coveted Golden Goose Egg
