SMOKED FROGS' LEGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Hello Lovely Smokers!!!!

    And Happy Thursday to you!

    So I had some plump and succulent little froggy babies...

    And some hickory chips and my tiny and somewhat filthy albeit still functional little gas smoker...

    And so I mopped them in grapeseed oil, put them onto a grill grate, and smoked at 260-280 for 20 minutes...

    And they were FALL OFF THE BONE fantastic!

    Juicy and marvelous, I layered these over some wheat-free pasta (brown rice fusili spirals from Trader Joe's)...

    And mixed in flat leaf parsley, chopped shallot, fresh basil, blue sea salt, black pepper, and olive oil!

    Paired with Gavi wine (bone dry, crisp, cold Italian white)...

    This really was lovely!

    The little outer edge of smoked, beautifulness, was so fabulous in contrast to the buttery soft seeming flesh inside as well! LOVED THESE!!!!!! And so very much!

    Needless to say, I am a "good" or thorough eater!

    Cheers to all! - Leah

    That looks awesome.

    I have been thinking of trying some frog legs.
  3. Thank you Adam! So glad you are a Moderator - congrats!

    Frogs's legs are so delicious! I have grilled many, smoked many, and eaten many, and never tire from them!

    Happy Thurs!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cheers!!!!!! - Leah

    I don't even know if I can buy them around here.
  5. Check with your fishmonger, as they make great "wings" (use your favorite wing sauce and whip up some blue cheese dipping sauces) for tailgating season if you do have to entertain any gourmands!

    Regardless, they're great whether winged up in sauce, grilled simply, smoked plain, or whatever it be!

    Happy all!!!!!!! Cheers! - Leah

    That looks very yummy. Frog legs are great...they taste like chicken. Kidding of course. Haven't had these for a while. Thanks for the idea.
  8. Thank you Allen! And I'm delighted you enjoyed these! My food is VERY simple, and usually only a trio or so of ingredients even! But wonderful just the same, or so I believe! Smiles. Happy Thursday to you!

    And thanks tons Atomicsmoke! I actually DO think that the 'chicken line' works here, as these can indeed taste like wings or light, thin, white chicken meat, and yet I also get a juicy texture and taste that is lighter, as if shredded halibut cheek or such!

    But glad you're a fan of these as well! And thank you for checking out my meal! So fun!!

    Happy Thursday!!!!!!!! Cheers!!!! - Leah

    Morn'n Leah.........   I haven't had frog legs in a coon's age. Used to go gigg'en when I was a teen out in the irrigation canals. I can see a call to my butcher coming up..

  10. Thank you Brad!! Hey Man, what's cooking in the west???!!!

    Are boars still tromping through your yard?

    I raise a glass with good cheer!!!!!!! Happy Thursday to you!!!!!!!! Good to hear from you and your side of our nation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Leah

    Hot and dry out here. I would like to see about 2" of a slow rain to knock the dust down...

    I don't care for wild piggies this time of year. What they have to eat makes them a bit gamey flavored. But I can make sausage out of them if one comes cruising by.....

    Elk meat is starting to show up at my door so I'm getting ready for some venison brats and summer sausage.......maybe some game sticks.

  12. Brad, your elk sounds so good! You are blessed for all that treks amid your land!!! Cheers! - Leah

    In this case I'm blessed with hunting buddies willing to give me half the meat if I make sausage out of the rest for them. It makes a nice trade.

    Now I do have a nice 3 X 4 buck that has been playing in my garden that needs to watch his step.........and turkey season is almost here.........[​IMG]

    I do need to get a new camera........Q-veiw is needed.

  14. You're blessed indeed!! Cheers! - Leah
