    Here are the rules, please read them carefully.

    Official Monthly Throwdown Rules

    BEFORE YOU START COOKING TAPE YOUR CODE WORD TO YOUR CAMERA SO THAT YOU DO NOT FORGET!

    1. The dish must feature SMOKED ingredients in a prominent manner.
    2. You must follow the throwdown theme.
    3. All entries must be cooked during the current throwdown period (6/1 - 6/30). A code word will be provided and must be written on an object and shown in your picture. DO NOT DIGITALLY ADD THE CODE WORD TO YOUR PICTURE .This month's code word is Smokin' Spuds
    4. All entries must be submitted by Midnight Eastern time on the night of 6/30.
    5. Entries are to be submitted to me (Sumosmoke) via Private Message with ONE picture of your dish and a brief description of your entry. If your description is too long it may be edited to be more concise. Only one entry per person is eligible. Do NOT post your entries in the general forum until after the contest winners have been determined or you will be DISQUALIFIED. After you send me your picture please do not move or delete it from photobucket so that it will remain in the posted thread for future viewing.
    6. There will be two categories for the judging. One will be determined by the judges of the events committee, and the other by SMF members choice through a voting poll. One contestant cannot win both categories. If that should happen, the runner up in the Members choice category will be the winner of that category. Any ties will be broken by the events committee's judging votes. Prizes (if any) will be awarded to the winner of each category.
    7. Events committee judging will be based on three scores, each given a score of 1-10 for a 30 possible points per judge. These will then be combined with all of the judges scores. Whoever has the most points will be the winner. The judging will be based on these three scores.
    ORIGINALITY =Trying something outside of the box.
    APPEARANCE = How good the dish looks.
    DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY = Technical difficulty and the amount of work that has gone into the dish.
    8. Any entries that do not adhere to these rules will be disqualified. Judges decisions are final.
    9. These rules are subject to change. Any changes made will be added at the beginning of the following throwdown.
    If you have any questions please send me (Sumosmoke) a private message and I will be happy to answer them for you.
     

    Good luck, and let's see some spuds!

    Cool--this should turn out some interesting concoctions!  There are obviously some amazing cooks/smoke&grill-masters on the SMF, judging by past throwdowns and everyday Q-view.  I can't wait to see the entries.  [​IMG]

    LOL Caveman! Thanks for the compliment! I've been kinda sickly the last couple of days with an ear infection and on antibiotics, feeling yucky, but your comment made me smile!

    And I do have something pretty off the wall planned for this. Hehehe. I wish I had gotten in on last months, cuz today I made smoked ravioli. Didn't do pics cuz I'm not in the mood. I'm a whiner girl today.

    Ha!!  More competition just showed up.  Now I really need to put on my thinking cap. 


     
    I'll bet real money that on your worst day, you could still run circles around me.  But that is alright.  I'm not turning in my man card just yet..............[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Feel better.

    In addition to white and sweet potatoes, I had a question sent to me asking if yams would be considered a potato.

    The answer: YES, yams are eligible for the contest.

    Another modification to the entries: 95 word limit has been removed. However, please be concise with your descriptions of the entry. A paragraph may not be needed for a 3 ingredient item. [​IMG]

    I'm loving the enthusiasm around this month's throwdown!

    Hmmmm,

    I'm liable to learn a lot from this one.

    I certainly hope after the contest, there will be some full recipe & instructions coming our way.

    I only know 5 potatoes----mashed, baked, roasted, french fries, and home fries.

    With this month's theme, you're also able to bake a potato and fill it with a tasty mixture of (smoked) pulled pork, beef, or chicken, and some other tasty niblets added in. What about a potato soup with some homemade smoked bacon?

    The potato itself, doesn't have to be smoked. Just the stuff that goes in it, or is part of the main dish, must consist of potatoes.

    It says, "If your description is too long it may be edited to be more concise."

    How long is too long------"Number of characters"---"Number of words"???

    Thanks,

    Bearcarver

    Hi Bearcarver - long is a description as such: "My great grandmother and her daugher's favorite friend used to make this dish for my Father when he was a small child. We used to hand pick the ingredients .... "

    Although that's probably a most touching story behind the dish, I'd edit the description to fit the "description" of the actual item being voted on.

    Hope this helps. Please feel free to shoot me a PM if ya have some additional questions [​IMG]

    Well darn it Laurel, I guess I won't be telling you about the time my uncle got drunk and wore panty hose while we made our famous spuds.
