Maybe we need some "gustatory athletes" to do the dirty work.

Tally their votes, and send them in for each recipe. It could be done as a voting poll, as were the Golden Chef competitions were. I think there will be a bunch of happy judges.

Now you just need volunteers to cook the pancakes.

This sounds fair. Speaking for my own family, they have never been afraid to tell me if they like someone else's recipe better than mine.

I also have several neighbors who I know would enjoy voting in a pancake throw down. Sounds like a good excuse for a get together.

I think we need to stick Bakechef in there too. We should probably let him know he's in the contest.

So:
Chief, Steve, Charlie, Bakechef, PF, Whisk.

And anyone else who has a love of pancakes!

I think it might be best to do next weekend, as some work and may not know they're in the contest.

I'm not in the contest...I'll be judging...have plenty of butter, maple surple and diabetes meds.

Should we maybe put this on a new thread, and can I also suggest maybe we do this over the Independence Day weekend? That will give us a little more time to prepare.

Good suggestions, I will give us all a couple of days to read up to here and let me know their preferences.

Is that a "yes I want to be Flapjack King" answer?
