First significant snowfall means it's lazy crockpot soup time! Smoked chicken, roasted tomatoes, Christmas chiles, and a little cream, every bit of it from cans. Full disclosure, the garlic sourdough toast is homemade.


Smoked chicken from a can?  Really?  Didn't know that was a thing.  Here it's still upper 80s, and I'm tired of cutting the grass this year.  I'd almost take some of that snow.

Cold fermented dough for three days. It was worth it.

Looks great!! I also do a 3 day ferment. Ill let mine sit at room temps over night after mixing then in the refrigerator for another 24 hours and finally on day 3 I'll put the dough in the wine cooler which is set at 59* until I get home from work. I normally use a 70% hydration depending on the style of pizza being made. I swear I see a smiling face in that slice of pizza!

It finally cooled off here in OH too.  That looks great!

Excellent looking meal JT. You’ve reminded me: I have a packer in the freezer I need to dig out.

I've always wanted to try Rauchbier with brisket...that looks epic. Usually I settle for stout or porter with BBQ.

I've got one in the freezer too...you guys are giving me ideas...
Corn is a fine adjunct in beer.

And don't buy stale beer.

Smoking some wings. I’ll pop them in the fryer to get the crisp and toss them in the sauce once I get some hickory smoke on them. Cheers!

Well played.  I love smoked wings, even more so if they are finished in the fryer, on the grill or under the broiler.

Yet another batch of wings:



Let the wings marinade overnight in store-brand balsamic vin.

Indirect cooked for ~1 hour, flipped halfway through, seared, sauced, and a 10-min rest on the indirect side to let the sauce set up.

Also used some pecan over the coals during the indirect cook for some smoke. Made the wing sauce taste extra-spicy, which I thought was good.

Thanks, JT, much appreciated. 

They really turned out well and didn't last long.  No leftovers.   ;D
