As usual there was no shortage of great food making the judging difficult .
I'll leave comments for the other entries in the gallery section where many of these cooks have already been re-posted. If you haven't re-posted your entry, then please do so other's can comment as well!
Well, here we go.
3rd place - Rip. I liked the whole cook including dessert, but it was the toasted Bruschetta appetizer topped with the tomato & fresh mozzarella that really caught my eye.
2nd place - Dan (bflodan). Three kinds of meat and roasted taters (in duck fat). What a feast and I really like how you pulled the chicken (like pork) and made sammies. That was very creative my friend (and they looked really appetizing too!).
But there was one entry that I kept going back to, wishing I could be there to in person to sample. it was...
1st Place - Chili Heads Italian Pork. Man did those sandwiches look good. I would've loved sinking my teeth into a big sandwich full of that juicy looking pork with the buns dipped in the broth!
BTW - Welcome home for the holidays Kevin! I loved the appetizers and miss seeing your posts. The ones with the cubed steak reminded me of mini wellingtons. And how about a big welcome to DAZ! Great looking fatties - keep on entering & posting!
Thanks again to Big Poppa for the weekly playground!
I know I am late with this cook and it won't count, but with the Badgers in the Rose Bowl today is my holiday. I grilled a 8 pound prime rib made Wisconsin style (2 lb cuts). It was so good I have to share. It is too bad because I would have had bonus points for the snow!
Here is a picture of all of the spices I used for the light rub. View attachment 1107

It was about 21 degrees outside, with a fresh inch of snow. View attachment 1106

Here in Wisconsin we eat meat in large portions. I have 4 guys over for the game and we destroyed all that meat in about 20 mins. View attachment 1108
It's halftime now and the game has been a shoot out! 8 combined touchdowns by halftime... On Wisconsin!
