BBQ PDQ Contest Winners Answered

Instructables is happy to announce the winners of the BBQ PDQ Contest. Since this was a speed contest, all of the winners were determined by user votes.

One of the winners, rsub8, had two winning entries and so the entry with the higher votes was recognized. Also, linuxmom was the winner of the linux family, but LinuxH4x0r and Tuxgirl were very close in winning shirts of their own.

As always, there are many more awesome Instructables than there are winners. I will be attempting to make my own horseradish in the future and enjoyed the BBQ Hero tips as well as the Tuna Steak Sandwich.

A big "thank you" to all who entered and if you didn't win we will be having more contests in the future.

Now, on with the winners!


The authors of these Instructables will each receive an Instructables Robot t-shirt.

First Prize

The authors of these Instructables will each receive an Instructables apron and an Instructables Robot t-shirt.

Delicious BBQ: Fall Off the Bone Beef Ribs
by Mr. Rig It


My First first prize win on Instructables! Congradulations to all their were a lot great entries. I would like to thank everyone for their votes and especially the cow for donating its meaty ribs. Thank you Thank you Thank you...

i have a request. can you invent a process of cooking ribs using a flamethrower? if you could it would be appreciated.

a torch maybe, but not a "true" flame thrower, which throws a viscous flammable liquid out of the nozzle....that would ruin the ribs LOL

I personally find the smell of gasoline to be absolutely mouth watering. That and rust. Rust smells so tasty...I only wish I could eat it.

You don't have a second home in a Swiss clock do you ? (j/k)

I was teasing and it was not nice.....I am sorry ( growing up, a lot of the "Swiss made clocks" my relatives owned were coo-coo clocks....I really was only teasing though, but that was probably too far, and I am sorry)

Oh, no, I'm not offended, I just didn't get the joke (you'd think I was blonde! :D). I get it now though. And that is a little cuckoo! Lol. And I know it...

I'm not offended at all. It wasn't too far. :) Promise.

Do they add that smell? I know they add the smell for natural gasses.

I always wondered, is there a way to make it visible, like perhaps some color.....

I mean, like some dust, or spray or something that you throw around the tank to see where its leaking....

...why would you randomly think it might be leaking? It's better to have something to alert you.

Congrats mate! my 1st prize too and with my first instructable! deffinately tryin' the ribs!

Your first instructable and your first prize awesome, congrats to you as well.

Congrats............from all the linux family

I would like to thank everyone for their votes and especially the cow for donating its meaty ribs.


And congrats on the win, Mr. Rig It!

The gas tank, but the smell wasnt too strong, so we weren't sure of it was gas leaking or some other smell....

if it were visible and leaked long enough, you wouldn't be able to see to get out of the house

Nono, I mean, if you ssuspect its leaking, but youre not sure, and you don't wanna call someone?

That's what the smell is for...you'll know it's leaking by the distinct smell.

But, sometimes you can't really tell......It's happened to me a lot of times....

Well done all ! :-)

Congrats to all! (WE WON!)

Funny how HE takes the credit........good job linux family for the excellent work. HMMMMM, what next. By the way who gets the t-shirt this time??

Of course! Should be here soon.........missing you!!!
