My local watering hole does recipe "throwdowns" every couple of months. They aren't really contest, but more of an excuse to enjoy each other's cooking and company.
However, once a year we have a "Sloppy Joe Festival." This really IS a contest and is a HUGE deal. It's always on a weekday and starts at 2:00pm. So close to 100 people chose to leave work early to go to the bar, drink, listen to bands, and eat and vote on their favorite sloppy joes.
Here's where I need your help. I decided to enter the contest this year. However, I've never been able to perfect the Manwichy deliciousness that I remember from my youth from scratch. Fellow hounds, what's your FAVORITE sloppy Joe recipe?
