I was a little late getting my cook up on instagram for the national Chili day hash tag so curious what you cooked, recipes you like etc.
I did a chili blanco with smoked chicken, coal roasted hot peppers and onions and fried prosciutto garnish. Love this recipe
My favourite Chili is this recipe given its excessive use of hot peppers that I grow, smoke to dehydrate and preserve and use throughout winter, it’s the red one in the two photos below
Nothing puts me in mind of fall quite like chili. Though I admit that none of my friends would ever define this as chili as it contains beans and a few other things to ease my conscience and qualify as healthy. Started out with 3lbs of ground turkey that I smoked for 3 hours on the Big Joe. Garlic and jalapenõ, cowbell, mexibelle, poblano and bell peppers that I roasted on the Joe after pulling the turkey, black and kidney beans, white onion, carrot, etc. Topped with red onion, yellow bell pepper- most of which I dropped putting the lid one- and extra sharp cheddar. I unfortunately didn't get a pic of anything on the smoker. Had to snap this picked quickly before the couples devoured the pot.
Having plenty of leftover Hot Dog Chili from Friday I decided to remake all 3 of my favorite dogs. The first time I made them, the buns were huge and came apart as I was plating them up. (That’s why you couldn’t see the dog in two of them)
I started out by making up some Cherry Dump Cake Cobbler. Here are the ingredients.
Buttered up my Dutch Over and dumped in the cherry filling and cake mix.
I leveled it out some and then sprinkled on some cinnamon and brown sugar.
I then thinly sliced a stick of butter and placed it on top.
I put in in my preheated, to 325, kamado for 35 minutes covered and 5 minutes uncovered. Here it is done.
I then put on some hot dogs and 1 brat.
While they were cooking we heated up the chili and got out all the condiments. Turned the dogs.
While they were finishing cooking I got out the sesame seed buns and when everything was ready, I made up the dogs and poured myself a Modern Times Blazing World Hoppy Dank Amber Ale. From left to right is a Chili Cheese Dog, a Chicago Dog and finally a Bratwurst with Mustard and Sauerkraut. All served up along with some corn on the cob, some fresh cut watermelon and cherry cobbler a la mode.
I starved myself all day because I knew I was making these and they again didn’t disappoint.
With the 4th of July coming up I decided to make 3 of my favorite dogs as practice. I started out by making up some of John’s Hot Dog Chili. Here are most of the ingredients.
Ingredients: 12 oz of a beer of your choice (choices here will change the flavor of the chili) 1 lb ground beef 1 medium onion, finely chopped 1 1/4 cup ketchup 1/3 cup yellow mustard 3 teaspoons sugar 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 1 tablespoon salt 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 tablespoon chili powder
Browned up the meat
and poured in the beer and brought it up to a boil and let it go for 15 minutes.
Put in the rest of the ingredients, stirred and brought it back up to a boil. and let it go until it was at the consistency I wanted and then lower it down to a simmer and let it go for another 40 minutes.
Let it go until it was at the consistency I wanted and then lowered it down to a simmer and let it go for another 40 minutes. Here’s the results.
While the chili was cooking I slices up the veggies and lite up the kamado. After the chili was done I put the hot dogs on along with a bratwurst.
While they were cooking I toasting up some poppy seed buns and when everything was ready, I made up the dogs and poured myself a Twisted Manzanita Rustic Horizon Red Ale. From left to right is a Chili Cheese Dog, a Chicago Dog and finally a Bratwurst with Mustard and Sauerkraut. All served up along with some corn on the cob and some fresh cut watermelon.
