All of the prizes this year were awarded by category. The judges,
as always, were…the people!

The prize for best tasting burger went to Gregg Weiseer of Swept

carmelized onions, apple wood bacon and a special meat blend.
The prize in the meatless category went to Sunset House’s
“Fish Burger” served with a mango salsa on a potato roll.
The “Coco Burger Deluxe” won for most messy burger.
The virgin (meaning first time entrant) went to Cozy A’s
“Zia Sante Fe” burger which featured green chile and white cheddar.
The kid’s choice award went Seven Seas’ “Sweet Ball
And finally, the award for most original went to Swept
Away’s “Mac-Doodle” which featured cheese doodle incorporated into the
burger and topped with Sponge Bob mac&cheese.
Other notables included the “Forbidden Burger” made by Frank
and Sunset’s “Kobe” burger.
All the burgers were made with that special Kismet TLC. The event
was well attended and enjoyed by all. The Kismetians have quite the appetite
too, calling out for new events in 2013 such as the “spud off; chili off; wing
off and bake off”. Why wait for 2013—get your dish on and bring it bro!!!
Good crowd, great weather...and food!!! What more could one want??!!
