Hello Folks. I have been thinking over my menu for the meet and greet and you know I have made a change by deciding to try brisket. Many of you are going to provide fantastic tasting smoked foods. What I want to do is to provide some foods that the U.K. folks are not used to. I'd like to broaden the horizons so to speak. South Texas style brisket, potato salad, sausage ,beans and Tex-mex style rice. But I have been REALLY thinking about the "soul food" influence. I won't go into the whole "soul food" discussion and how it came about. Without "soul food" many folks in the south would have gone hungry. Many "soul food" dishes go great with smoked meat. Now don't dismiss this before trying; I will be doing spring greens soul food style ( if I can get them ). Just give 'em a try. Of course picts will be taken on the day and recipes will also be available from all of the attending members. Was just curious as to how British folks feel about "Greens" especially spring greens. Keep Smokin!
