Hey ro/ck/stars, welcome to the Second Annual /ck/ Top Master Iron Chef Ultimate Nightmare Kitchen Survivor Challenge!
We are now in elimination rounds. This brings a few changes to the gameplay. The quick and dirty:
-submissions AND voting will be carried out in the same thread.
-we will not be allowing extra days for voting, all votes and entries must be submitted by midnight of the 12th, so try to complete your dish with enough time to attract votes.
-surprise penalties and benefits will be revealed at the end of each round.
-at least one contestant will be eliminated per round, based on a weighted cumulative moving average.
Additional information can be found on the Challenge blog.
Voting will be carried out in this thread. Please read the voting guidelines below.
Dishes are scored out of a total 20 points, based on 4 categories (worth a maximum of 5 points each); Presentation, Originality, Appeal and Challenge Goals. You may award 0's if you feel the contestant did not meet your expectations for a category.
-Presentation: The appearance of items on the plate; plating skills
-Originality: Creativity in composing the dish
-Appeal: How appetizing the food looks/whether or not the dish appeals to your personal taste as a voter
-Challenge Goals: How closely the entry followed the challenge goal(s)
The distinction between Presentation and Appeal: If someone submits an artfully arranged but burnt steak as an entry, it may score high in Presentation but low in Appeal.
Copypasta Scoring Format for Lazymodo
Challenge Goals: /5
The final fifteen contestants are (in alphabetical order):
El Dono !!6RAioSpGPXj
Smith the CIA Agent
...and congratulations to our final contestant, Pyewacket !!uKoiN+HhkE7, who won Round 3.

No matter what I eat, I'm always hungry. I had a pretty big bowl of sesame rice with tofu, liver and spinach, a couple of oranges and I'm still hungry. It's always like this, I can't stop thinking about food. I can chow down a whole bunch of chocolate bars and still have room for more. I'm always restraining myself and thankfully I'm not putting on any weight (5'6ft and 111pounds) but I'm worried I'm going to get pretty fat. What kinds of foods make you really, really full? It's really bad when I'm out eating with friends, 10 minutes after my meal I go and um...poop and then I'm peckish again. After 20 minutes I get quite hungry all over again. I once ate 7 full piled on plates at an all you can eat buffet within 1 hour, it was horribly embarrassing.
ITT: Brisket Burgers

So I've been thinking about what I want to submit for the /ck/ challenge of burgers.
I reckon most people who actually know how to cook will know how to make a good burger, so I want to take it up a notch.
I've been floating some ideas around:
- Brisket Burger. Slow cooked brisket, on a bed of tomatoes, lettuce. Served with a quick pickled Chinese cabbage.
- Tuna tartare burger, open faced burger, diced tuna seasoned with soy sauce, wasabi, sesame oil, mirin, lime juice; topped with grated ginger, green onions and toasted nori. Served with a salad of thinly sliced cucumbers, carrots and finely diced shallots, tossed with Asian style sweet and sour dressing.
- Lobster tail burger, essentially a lobster roll in burger form.
- Pan seared salmon burger
- Oyster burger (can't find decent oysters, gave up)
What do you guys think about my ideas, any thoughts from you guys on what you'd do for this challenge?

New York Times just did an expose on ag-gag legislation. For those that don't know, the meat, dairy, and egg industries are trying to pass bills in many states that would make undercover investigation illegal, in order to hide their dark secrets from the public.
Making it illegal to film in factory farms isn't bad simply for animal welfare, but for human health too. In the past, undercover footage has revealed practices in the industry that are bad for consumers. Using sick, diseased cows in our beef, etc. It has also lead to arrests and lawsuits.
If undercover footage were illegal, there would be no way for the public to know the reality of what's in their meat. The entire industry would become practically 100% self-monitored.
