    Ahh the ideas!

    So this is what I am thinking, once an admin gives the ok / support.

    Fattie throw down:

    1) 1st fattie

    If you are out there lurking, or just curious, its time to try your hand at the fattie. "Points" or "judging" based on basic fattie technique / recipe, photos of the fattie process, and bacon weave. Additional points for original fattie name or caption, humerous pictures of eating your first fattie, or extremely tasty pictures of a blow out!

    2) Summer back yard BBQ / tailgating fattie

    Bring it on. Pick something that you know you want to put together, and will win over those who devour it. Regular "points" but extras awarded for photos of enjoyment of the fattie in an excellent environment (1st summer tailgator!), or plated in a tasty way or with tasty things.

    Oh and when I mean "plated" I dont mean a fattie sliced and delicately placed in the middle of a truffel oil infusion (unless there are some fries involved). I mean a big fat slice sitting on a plate with some of your other favorite summer fixing! Think in terms of trying to maximize the digital droolness of the forum members!

    3) Mystery "Food Network style" ingrediant fattie throwdown

    Same as above, but using an agreed upon ingrediant or two in a special way with the fattie. On, in around, whatever it takes.

    Winners of 2 and 3 pick the next 2 throw down themes / ingrediants!

    Winner of #1, congrats, the forum now officially expect more BBQ food pictures!

    Ps - I can't spell good.

    Oh also I'd like to introduce a system so allow 2 different days to cook.

    2 words are released on a Saturday and Sunday. a QView photo must be submitted to a judge in order to enter, but the whole post can be done on the Sunday.

    I'm a pacifist FiU. We don't do competitions. We don't care what other people think of us. LOL

    Here's an idea I had...and maybe this is along the line of what Herky was talking about. What if on a certain day (Friday for example) Herky or a mod (whoever is in charge) throws out an ingredient. Then everyone has say 72 hours to post their fattie that includes that ingredient.

    I think it should go on for 2 or 3 months since it's often that many won't be able to submit in that time frame. If you miss one, or choose not to enter, you'll have several opportunities to do so with another ingredient.

    Just an idea.

    I'm coming up with some ideas with FireItUp. Probably have a fattie throwdown thread shortly. Time frame will be a week - weekend near the beginning of August.

    Keep an eye out!
