    From the Grill!

    Last night, I did burgers in the grill, over hardwood rather than charcoal. I highly recommend well cured Maple for this, by the way.....good heat and the smoke is sweet.

    Prepping the wood


    and the burgers.....



    Now, this was tonight's dinner. I used charcoal and wood together because I neded a longer burning, slightly cooler fire for the chicken. Maple smoked chicken is da omb, by the way.





    Tonight was smoked chicken and pan fried potatoes, and sweet corn, and in the potatoes, we cooked some of the green onions from the porch garden. MMMMMMMM! Good!

    The chicken was spiced with Spanish Paprika, seasoned salt, cayenne pepper, and ground cumin.

    Me, I'm in Central Alabama C.S.A. But my husband is under the bed. He's sure there is a black helicopter orbiting our house.

    Do you use commercial bags of hardwood? I have a bag of larger wood chips that I've used for smoking. I've never thought of using it instead of charcoal.

    Nope, I brought home some firewood and split it down from seasoned Maple logs from the woodpile up at the lake. We have a fireplace, and a lakeside firepit up there, so we keep 10 or so cords of firewood up there, since the cottage can be heated with the fireplace if we get caught up there in a blizzard that takes out the power.

    There are some commercial bags of Hickory chunks, though, that work well. Chips will burn too fast, and are only good in a foilpack on the coals for smoke after soaking them in water for an hour before you use them.

    From time to time people mention grilling/smoking over fruitwood. I read somewhere that the wood from fruit-producing trees will accumulate pesticides sprayed on the fruit. Then those residues can contaminate food cooked over the fire. I live in an apple and peach producing region. If you were to see how often and how much peach orchards get fogged you would never eat a peach without thoroughly washing or peeling it. Apples aren't so bad but they get their share of fogging.
    There are plenty of chokecherry trees in the woods to provide fuel for smoking.
    more cops have been killed by donuts than guns in chicago it is a medical fact ask any doctor.
