Lets go for the golden egg this week....lets knock it out of the park....How about if we set the standard for the best cooks on the planet? HOw about global warming and world peace....ok Im getting carried away but hows this for an idea?
BP wanted it and WOW – I think you guys achieved it -- definitely golden egg, knock it out of the park kind of week. If I counted correctly we have 20 entries with 17 cooks entering. I think , BP can chime in to verify , that this was the largest number of cooks entering, maybe even entry count?

I know that the tradition has been a rundown of the entries but sorry, I just don’t have the time tonight , it’s gotten so huge.

So, the winners are :

3rd place -- - Sparky – Easter Ribs -- beautiful Sparky – doing something nice for the people that touch your life (very smart to include your wife in that mix). Nothing more fulfilling than feeding the people around you.

2nd place --- Sirius76 - Very first contest entry, Good Friday Pork Extravaganza. Wow, beautiful entry right out of the box. . Pork butt, Nepas bacon beans, corn - what a meal. It doesn’t even look like you were able to get your guests to look up from their plates for the picture. I can see you will be a rookie about as long as your buddy Rip was

1st place --- Tenthunter – Apple-Smoked Crown Rack of Pork with Braised Apples & Cornbread Stuffing. Impressive ! All I can say is that I hope that someday my son cooks me an Birthday/Easter dinner that looks like that. Nothing goes better together than pork, apples & cornbread stuffing. Beautiful Cliff!

Congrats to everyone, it was really tough judging , all the entries were great:).

Congrats Cliff, Dragan, and Sparky! Thanks Deb, that couldn't have been easy. Thanks BP!
Btw, definitely the most entrants, we had 15 two weeks ago. The 4/1 contest set the bar with 22 entries...(by my unofficial count)

Wow, this week was sure exciting. So many good entries and new entrants. Dragan hit the ground running and how about that trifecta of meat going on in Scott's pan: Brisket, Hot-smoked Sausage AND pulled pork... Beautiful!

Hats off to ITFD for giving up his time to serve the folks in his local community.

Thanks to Deb for judging what had to be the toughest one yet, and to BP!

As stated earlier, I think it's very generous (especially considering you're already sponsoring the forum). From a sharing perspective, I think it was a home run. From a judges perspective, the tradition of judges comments (which is time consuming to prepare) may end up abbreviated, or like this week skipped. (not a complaint Deb, I understand completely!)

And, thanks BP!

Double ditto what Rip said; it was definitely a home run!

Saving them up is great. I'm saving my Big Poppa bucks to go towards upgrades for when we order a new grill. How sweet is that?

The $5 gifts are a great idea. If I were ever to win one, I'd save it up till I got like $25 or so (five wins, YEAH!) and then buy some cool stuff from the website.
