You guys overwhelmingly handed me the win last week, giving me a strong 77% of the vote over Colin’s pickled halibut. Personally, I think he kind of got shafted as I thought the fish and Ritz cracker mixture sounded delicious. But then, I’m a sucker for about anything pickled. Still, thanks for giving the goose jerky the nod.

Fried Northern Pike w/ Potatoes, Onions and Baked Beans



Grilled Caribou Loin w/ Scalloped Potatoes and Spicy Beans**


This week, fellow Field & Stream blogger Kirk Deeter from the FlyTalk blog steps into the Food Fight ring for the first time. I have to admit, he’s got a strong submission with a pic from his recent fishing trip to Saskatchewan. His description:

“Fried northern pike (coated in flour, cornmeal, and a dash of Montreal seasoning)… with fried potatoes, onions, and baked beans… cooked lakeside in a cast iron skillet. I’m a believer…”

To keep the Canada theme going, I present my Tuesday night dinner – grilled caribou loin from northern Quebec, scalloped potatoes and a healthy scoop of spicy beans. I don’t think my dining room can compete with Deeter’s lakeside view, but as far as taste, I think it’s going to be close.

So, cast your vote. And don’t forget to submit your best food photo to
