Summertime is all about cooking, and eating, outdoors, so this week’s food fight celebrates the upcoming season.

Outer Banks Seafood Boil



Bacon-Wrapped Elk Backstrap


Wild Chef reader Steve Peifer submitted this fabulous seafood photo from the Outer Banks, or as he describes it “a fresh NC OBX seafood boil featuring local crabs, clams, shrimp, and corn, with store bought baby potatoes in a beer, butter, garlic and Old Bay broth, plus my homemade all-spice mix.”

His mouthwatering photo kind of makes me wish I lived a little closer to the coast. Instead, I guess I’ll have to be happy with these bacon-wrapped elk backstrap steaks, paired with lemon-thyme grilled asparagus and my girlfriend’s famous tinfoil potatoes.

So, pick your favorite, but no matter which way the vote ends up, Steve is the big winner. For sending in a photo, we’re going to hook him up with a great prize package.
