    Sorry I have to post this early as I have some family things going on (death) but I wanted to get this out now rather than later. This is also posted as the second post in the fattie throwdown sticky. I'll be online to answer questions as soon as I can tomorrow.

    Secret Ingredients to pick from:

    1) Root vegtables or Tubers as defined by:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Root_vegetable
    and
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuber

    2) Any combination of ingredients form the following Scoville Chart that register 100 or over. At least one ingredients must start in whole form. Other ingredients may be in processed form (powders)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scoville_scale

    3) Goat Cheese


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

    Have fun.
     
  2. Mmmmm now this I will have to think on... Can't wait to see what everyone has in store for there fatties...

    On the chart you are using it says Law Enforcement Grade, Does that mean we use Mace in the fattie or just Mace the judges if we loose??? LOL

    I actually have (in hot sauce collection)a bottle of Pure Capsaicin that I could Use.

    My Remmington 870 says you wont be macing me :D But yes, if its a valid ingredient on the chart, it can be used! :D

    Of course in order to get more points you may have to attempt to eat that fattie full of mace and photograph the salty tears of pain.... :D

    Does fresh horseradish qualify as a tuber? It is a root vegetable but i didn't see it on the sites you posted.

    If its a root vegtable go for it! I was really going for "potato" not "tomato" :D

    Remember you dont have to use all 3 things.
     
  9. Count me in fellers!!!!!!

    I do have a question. For the "classic", it basically can be anything but just doesn't have to include the secret ingredients right? Do we have to made side dishes, or just the fattie is ok?


    thanks!!

    My understanding is that it has to contain one of the items from the three groups listed.
     
  11. I'm cool on the mystery ingredient one. I got a great idea for that one and already bought the ingredients. What abouit the "classic" one is what my question is for.

    thanks!

    Classic one just has to be Summer / BackyardBBQ / Tailgator themed. Does not ahve to include the secret ingredients.

    Sides are fine especially if they work with your theme!
     
  13. Ok folks. My secret ingredient Fattie is wrapped and ready for the smoker. Lookin' good!!! Ok gettng hungry here. :)

    I have two entries for the classic/tailgater category at 124* and 127*, with the smoker running a steady 230*. My secret ingredient fattie is still in the planning stages.
