I saw John's recipe for Cheesy Bacon Beer Bread, and to be honest, I'm terrible with bread. I always find a way to make it too dry, dense, bland, etc. I found a recipe for simple bread here and it could not have been more simple and quick to prepare! 3 cups all purpose flour 1 tbsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 3 tbsp sugar 1 1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used Sharp Cheddar, Gouda and Red Leicester) 1 (12 ounce) bottle of quality beer 5 slices of bacon, chopped and cooked 2 tbsp butter, melted Diced Jalapeno optional Preheat smoker to 350° with heat deflector. Prepare your bread pan by greasing and set aside. Mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in large bowl with whisk to incorporate. Make a well in the center of the flour and add 3/4 of the bacon and cheese, all of the beer and the optional Jalapenos. Mix with a spoon until everything is combined. Pour mixture into pre-greased bread pan. Pour the remaining bacon and cheese on top of the loaf, and drizzle half of the melted butter on top. As soon as your smoker has dialed in at 350° place the pan on the smoker. I added a few small chunks of Oak to get a bit of smoke flavor. After 30 minutes open the lid and drizzle the remainder of the butter on the loaf. Close the lid and check after 25-30 minutes. The loaf should have a nice crust on the top when it is ready. Let the bread pan rest on a wire rack for 5 minutes. You could add more butter on top if desired. After the 5 minutes is up, carefully remove the loaf from the pan and allow it rest on the cooling rack for another 5 minutes. Then slice and enjoy!
