    *** DATE CHANGE AUGUST 8-16th ***

    Attention meat aficionados,

    It is time to squeeze those creative juices, and flex those Fattie technique muscles again…

    Summertime FATTIE THROWDOWN!

    There will be 2 categories for this throw down.
    • Backyard BBQ / Tailgater theme Fattie.A classic Fattie with some classic homemade smoked sides, or stuff that bad boy with the best summer has to offer! Whatever you can think of!
    • Mystery Ingredient(s). 2-3 secret ingredients will be posted to be used in a Fattie. One or all may be used, but a single entry for this category is allowed.
    Only one category needs to be entered, and a winner /2nd/3rd/4th is chosen for each category. For the mystery ingredient category, only one entry is allowed, although there will be 2 ingredients to choose from, and either or both may be used.

    General filling ingredients may be prepared ahead of time. However any ingredient that looks overly complex, or where the authenticity of the ingredient is questionable (you didn’t make it yourself) may need to be verified. In these cases if you think you are going to make something far outside of the box creative, you may be asked to prove your creations via the forms (a link to a post), or utilize 2 days to create the Fattie and document the fillings.

    The throw down will start on August 8th. Entries should have at least a rolling view and sliced view submitted to the judges via a private message with the code word in the picture by Saturday August 15th, 8PM PST to be considered. All complete entries should be submitted via the forms by 8PM PST on August 16th containing the following information:
    • Outer ingredients (bacon weave or no)
    • Filling ingredients
    • Smoker type
    And not forgetting
    • Rolled Sausage ready for filling
    • Filling before rolling
    • Rolled finished fattie
    • Fattie when taken off the smoker
    • Fattie Sliced
    Additional pictures with some tasty side dishes, or the Fattie being enjoyed in an entertaining way / place, could be used as possible tie breakers. Knowing our members, it’s probably going to be close! :D

    Judging will be done by myself and FireItUp.

    A code word / signal (hand sign), and ingredient list will be posted to this thread on Saturday August 1st (Friday midnight). The code work must be written on an object or hand signal used, and included in each photo.

    Basically just make some fatties and have some fun!

    processed form (powders)

    3) Goat Cheese

    Secret word is: Blue
    Secret signal is: OK hand sign next to the fattie

    So you and Fire it up will not be eligible to win since you are both judges right? Why don't you just set up a poll with all of the entrants and let everyone vote? That way you guys could participate.

    I thought about that. I'm not too concerned if I can't enter, and I think FireItUp was ok too. However if that changes and he wants to enter and I can't find a second judge I may do that. I may even set up this anyway with the entries for fun, and whether or not we use it would be determined for a tie breaker / close calls.

    Can't wait to see what crazy/delicious creations people are going to come up with.
    As for entering, I'm perfectly happy being a judge. The power to decide ones fattie fate is enough for me...[​IMG]
