Feast Your Eyes on This- Final Contestant Videos
This is the final round of the Feast Your Eyes on This Spicy Cooking Challenge. We are down to Clement of Cajun Heat and Johnny of Heartbreaking Dawns. Johnny has won 4 of the 6 challenges and Clement the other 2, including the only challenge these two were head to head. It is as close as it comes, and the videos will prove tough for our judges.
The challenge for this round was simple. Make 3 dishes, 1 pork, 1 chicken, and 1 beef. I gave them a few ingredients that they couldn’t use that I personally detested- coffee, licorice, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and liverwurst. They had to use ingredients that can be found at your average supermarket. Nothing hard to get. They could make anything they wanted, and had 20 minutes to do it in.
A big thanks to all of our sponsors for supporting us and these spicy cooks. The prizes to the overall winner are free booths and demos at both Jungle Jim’s Weekend of Fire Show and NOLA Hot Sauce & Gourmet Foods Show. Plus second place will get $100 from Jim Duffy of Refining Fire Chiles and another $50 from Tracy Carter of JACS Tailgaters. So there is a lot at stake, but nice money as consolation to the runner-up.

Great job both of you! I was smart enough to eat before watching because all the dishes made me hungry!
Great job guys!!!
Johnny, I hope your dreaming of chicken and waffles doesn’t turn into a nightmare! lol Everything looked great. I’m gonna have to try those waffles.
My compliments to both for the outstanding job in getting to this point! You both have a flair for the task at hand. You also made it very hard to pick a winner. Congratulations to you both! I think you are both winners!

It’s been a blast! I’m gonna let things cool down a bit then I’ll make that vid with your blackening spice!
Guys, thanks for being great sports all the way through. Of course, you won, so we didn’t get a chance to see you be poor sports. I appreciated your sense of humor, your cooking stylings and your personalities that made this contest special. I hope everyone that watched, voted and participated in any way, enjoyed it as much as I did. Thanks guys! You are both winners in my book. :winner: :winner:
I hear you on the “cool down” . 3 months…wow!!, it kind of flew by in a strange way. It’s weird that it’s over, I was getting used to the “ok every other week we do the video and get it in…etc” Good times!
WOW guys what an awesome job you both did. look forward to seeing y’all in New Orleans. And thanks for making me watch these videos over and over again to find something to make one stand out over the other. You guys Rock!!!!!
