gary, of course!
Smoked Chickpea Recipe.
We (my DH: Dear Husband, and I ) had these smoked chickpeas on a salad in a nice restaurant years ago, and loved them. I tried to recreate them in a grill with a smoke box and roasted in the oven to no avail, so trying a smoker recipe.
All were "eyeballed" measurements, though I do have a tsp. measuring spoon out, just to have pulled it out of the drawer. ;)
2 cans of garbanzo beans or chickpeas, salt, cumin, cayenne, chili, garlic powder, (~1 tsp of each, I doubled the salt after tasting).
Spread on a grill pan,drizzle with olive oil. Just checking every so often by tasting one to see if it is 'crunchy' on the outer skin yet. Getting there, but not totally done yet. Been in for a good 2 hours on the top rack.
Scotch Eggs, my secret favourite thing.
8 boiled (fresh) chicken eggs, 2 lbs of fresh ground elk meat. They were quite impressive looking giant meat 'balls' after I made them but my hands were covered in ground elk, so not a great time to pick up the camera phone. Just take a handful of ground (meat) and flatten into a smallish patty. Place egg on top, and wrap patty around egg. I balled it up in my hands to really secure the meat around the egg, and make sure no 'air pockets' were around the egg also. Sprinkled with a seasoning (cayenne, chili, etc. seasoning) we found locally.
I love this one particularly, the chickens are a neighbors, so local and fresh. The elk is the one my husband harvested this past year, so 'local'/wild too. Love it.
In smoker at 225 now.
The flat iron steaks don't take but an hour (according to recipe), so I have those marinating now.
