Backcountry.com 2nd Annual Jetboil Cook Off

The 2nd Annual Jetboil Cook Off among Backcountry.com employees was a huge success! The 6 finalists and thier recipes were as follows:

Mike Cory: Breakfast Burrito

Ali Thackeray: Salmon Edamame Pasta

Greg Davis: Black Bean yummy goodness, w/veggies

Aaron Carlson: Curry

Colin Edwards: Mushroom Risotto

Matt Young: Thai Pizza

This year's winner Matt Young made a tasty Thai Pizza (even made the whole wheat dough in the Jetboil) that the judges just couldn't pass up.

The Top 6 chosen finalists were graciously given a Jetboil setup directly from Kirk Haskell and Keith DEntremont, our Jetboil sponsors of this event. The Top 6 competed for the coveted Cook Off Winner Apron and a super sweet gift certificate to Market Street-compliments of Kirk and Keith, not to mention all the Jetboil stuff they now own!

Our second place winner Ali Thackeray won an equally delicious gift certificate to the Porcupine Pub and Grill for the "Most Nutritious Recipe"

What type of stuff are you cooking up on your Jetboils? Comment below if you've got a good recipe. (And you thought they were only good for boiling water in 90 seconds)

yea, I figured it was weak that I didn't round up some recipies. Like, what's this blog good for if we don't give up the goods? I'll get some recipies and instructions and post them.
