    Some pics from the World Championship cook-off. You had to win a sanctioned local contest to qualify. The contest was a three pot cookoff. You had to make a main dish, a bread and a dessert

    Day 1
    Day 2

    Some good looking food, and some average looking food, but the cooking methods are fairly limited and all prep work must be done on site, no electrical aids.

    Rules

    The winners are at the home page, http://idos.org/

    Thanks!

    Amazing what can be done with cast iron and some charcoal.

    I have to agree with Castiron. I saw this once on tv and was amazed really at what these people could accomplish with such limited methods. These are the people I would want to be stuck on an island with!
