World Famous Potato Salad!

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by theblondebbqer, Jun 14, 2007.

  1. Hi Everyone!

    I am currently working on opening a BBQ shop in D.C. I started cooking at a young age and went to culinary school. However, my main passion was always smoking! I have created the recipe for the worlds greatest potato salad. I hope some of you will want to share recipes for your grilling parties!

    welcome to smf. eveyone that eats my Q tells me i ought to open a bbq place here. if i ever lose my job i might do that. i would think it would be quite different doing it for a living, vs. for doing it just to feed my family for a few days.
  12. WOW! Thanks everybody! I appreciate all your hospitality! It's always nice to have friends with the same passion for BBQ as me! The restaurant is getting a slow start, as we need another loan BUT we finally found a place! Its an old restaurant close to the Hill. We also are at a complete standstill on the name too! If anyone has any suggestions for a good BBQ shop name give me a shout out! I want it to be original, but it seems like all the good names are taken! As for the potato salad... HERE IT IS!!! I hope you like it. [​IMG]

    The Blonde BBQer

    4 to 5 boiled potatoes (don't boil too long as it is better crunchy)
    1 cup mayo
    2 TBS, apple cider vinegar
    1/2 onion GRILLED with BBQ spice rub on top
    1 1/2 TBS sea salt
    as much black pepper as you like
    1 TBS brown sugar
    1/4 cup yellow mustard
    2 TBS celery seed
    AND TO TOP....CRISPY CRISPY CRISPY BACON!!! lots of bacon crumbles.

    I hope that you like it[​IMG]
  13. WAIT! I almost forgot the cayenne pepper!!! It adds the perfect kick. I like to add lots, but you can add as much as you like![​IMG] The hotter the better!
  14. Seeing that you're in D.C. How about "Blowin' Smoke - A BBQ joint" or "Smoke Blowin' BBQ"? [​IMG]

    Good luck on everything!

    That recipe sounds differrent from the usual spuds salad. I'm looking forward to trying it.
  16. HaHaHa!! YES!! i def. want a politics themed joint since i'm in the area. certain items on the menu will reflect that too. we will have the ba"rack" obama ribs, bill clinton "i smoked this chicken but i didnt inhale" chicken, Bush's baked beans, ted kennedy beer can chicken..etc! what do you think about a picture of uncle sam saying...I WANT YOU to eat this BBQ. (and he has bbq sauce around his mouth and is holding a rib. I know it sounds corny, but this stuff sells!

    Congressional Grilling Co.

    Welcome BBBQer -

    Great bunch of folks here you'll feel right at home (or maybe better). Thanks for posting your recipe. You'll find lots of great recipes here from the SMF family enjoy!
  19. The only thing you forgot or need to change to really kick this up a notch, smoke the Potatoes.  And also the Sea Salt, smoked is wonderful.

  20. Add the Cayenne, yes, but I bet you a dollar, if you smoked those potatoes it would be kicked up much farther and taste better also.
