The 10th Annual Hot Pepper Awards Winners Announced!

Photo

The Next Throwdown is...


Best Answer The Hot Pepper, 23 May 2017 - 01:29 PM

June 2-5!
Newbies, you can read about Throwdowns here: http://thehotpepper....111-throwdowns/

On this one you challenge someone to a burger, and can win a crown thingy!
 

June is The Dual Burger Duel!
 
What????
 
Grant has suggested in the past we do a burger head-to-head where you get to pick your competitor, so we are going with that idea this time!
 
But what does dual duel mean?
 
Duel: Head-to-head. PM me your matchup, you can PM or post to find your competitor, even challenging members in this thread.
Dual: You both agree to one protein for the patties. That's all you know about each other's creations, and each may either present a double burger of that protein, or two single burgers of that protein dressed differently (or the same if you wish). For example, you choose beef. You can do a double beef burger, or two single beef burgers, both exactly the same, or one with bacon and swiss, and one with chili and cheddar. Get it?
 
We will allow multiple protein matchups so if you choose beef it is still open for other Duels. This could be YUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!! There will NOT be an Anything Goes only Duels. Yes, then a Best Burger poll of winners.
 
PM me your matchups with protein. Matchups must be reserved before the next TD starts. Crowns to each winner.

  • Please choose the specific protein, as in beef, bison, chicken, turkey, etc.
  • If doing seafood please specify if fish or shellfish. Please specify the shellfish and if fish, you each can choose your own but if you do 2 burgers they need to be the same fish each, the difference in the dressing, like with meat.
  • Pertaining to above any mixed proteins must be agreed upon by both parties and the chosen protein must be at least 50% of the blend. The second etc. can be mystery.
  • If doing veggie that means it can be vegan or vegetarian with eggs and cheese allowed (no need to specify actual veg proteins). Since you don't have to specify proteins, technically, you could do 2 different patties if you wish.
Patties should only be made of your chosen protein and not mixed with other major proteins except spices and fillers (fillers being things like binders or cheese).
 
1 DUEL PER MEMBER!

I will enjoy rooting from the sidelines on this one. Kids have a swim meet this weekend and I haven't found anything in dying to try. Hopefully I will see some dishes that will change that.

I am not a huge sweet chocolate fan, either. In fact, a number of peeps gave me chocolate candies for Christmas (maybe they think I need to gain some weight???) and I am giving it away. Mind you, I love one or two from time to time, but I much prefer non-chocolate if I'm going with sweets.

 

On the other hand, the key here is to separate "chocolate" from "sweet", which I know a lot of people have a hard time doing. The really high-percentage chocolate/cocoa is not sweet-tasting at all, and can actually be rather bitter. Also, I think another key is not to over-use the chocolate - a little can go a long way. I tend to see it as more of an enriching ingredient than anything else.

 

There again, maybe you've given this a try already and still don't care for it. Regardless, I'll be looking forward to seeing what D makes!

Yep - there's something special about a (tiny!) slice of chocolate cheesecake. But in case your tendencies not to fully read have kicked in, keep in mind the TD is for savory - no desserts.

     My vote is still for a bean TD. Winter seems like a good time to cook something that takes a long time on the stove or in the oven. Fill your stomach and heat your home at the same time!

Egg throw down would be cool.  Someone else mentioned potato throw down, which is a good idea.  Also believe a bacon TD would be epic.  

 

Vegetarian TD, Stuffed TD, Tropical Island/Hawaiian/Polynesian TD, Madagascar TD (brainstorming).

 

Also would like to see another 'chopped' style TD where 3 random ingredients are announced the day of along with PoL.
