Thank you +Chef Dennis Littley for this amazing coverage of my event. The Smokin Iron Chef Competition. It was a tough competition with some challenging mystery ingredients. I knew the fresh horseradish would throw them off. Even more fun was your post coverage video interviewing the chefs and their take on the mystery items. Great job everyone!
