Thanks for pulling this list together, Jim. Great idea! :smilekettle:

He had a good head start. LOL

In an effort to decide on an ingredient for Throwdown #18, I researched past contests to see the entries, contestants, controversy, tie breakers, and excellent examples of cooking technique. There was plenty to go around. It was quite a good read though. In some contests it was difficult to tell who won since we've moved and some of the links to the Poll post are now broken.

Battle 1 -- the initial battle "Eggs" kicked off as a team event by J Biesinger way back in May 2011. It was judged by K Kruger, Jim Lampe, and JimK.

The other team events were:
Battle 2 -- Milk Chocolate
Battle 3 -- Tea

Then the era of the Throwdown -- our current contest format -- began in Nov 2011 with Throwdown #1: Flank Steak. (Jon Des was declared the winner.)

The winners (as far as I can tell) in other Throwdowns were:
Throwdown #2: Potatoes (Bill W. Michigan)
Throwdown #3: Poultry (Gary H NJ)
Throwdown #4: Burgers (Don Cash)
Throwdown #5: ABT's (Morgan C)
Throwdown #6: Fish (Scott M)

It was easier to determine the winners from this point forward due to the Poll system we now use in our new home at vBulletin.

Throwdown #7: Pizza/Flatbread (JimK)
Throwdown #8: Ground Stuff (RCBaughn)
Throwdown #9: Pork Loin (Kim Drana)
Throwdown #10: Mushrooms (Dwain Pannell)
Throwdown #11: Shellfish (Chad M)
Throwdown #12: Ribeye Steak (David)
Throwdown #13: Chicken Wings (Jim Lampe)
Throwdown #14: Carne Asada (Tony R)
Throwdown #15: Pork Spare Ribs (Steve Aguilar)
Throwdown #16: Tri-Tip (Mildo)
Throwdown #17: Pork Tenderloin (Dwain Pannell)

For Throwdown #18 I recommend Beef Chuck Roast.

Good Luck!
