Smoked Yard Bird + Smoked Twice Baked Mashed Cauliflower

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Decided to fire up the smoker today, but wanted to keep it simple.

 

Yard Bird

I broke down the bird and added some additional legs.

 

Simple Injection into the breasts of chicken stock

I used my low sodium rub

Smoked with a blend of black cherry and apple

Smoke temp 275

2-1/2 hours in the smoker

15 Minutes under the broiler to crisp up the skin.

 

Twice Baked Mashed Cauliflower

-Two heads of Cauliflower, boiled for 20 minutes, drained and let rest in a covered pan for 20 additional minutes

-Placed the Cauliflower in the food processor with 1/4 Cup Greek Yogurt, 1/3 cup graded parmesan Cheese ( grated myself, if using store bought I would cut in half), 2 cloves finely chopped garlic, 2 TBS coarse chopped parsley, 2 tsp black pepper, and a 1/2 tsp of fine sea salt.

- Blended until semi smooth (I do not like it totally smooth and whipped)

- Placed in foil pan that I had coated with Walnut oil

- Sprinkled about 4 TBS of cooked crumbled bacon, 4 Chopped Green Onions, and 1/4 cup of a 4 cheese blend

- Drizzled some Garlic infused olive oil over the top

-Smoked with the Chicken (on the rack above the chicken) for 45 Minutes

-Placed under the broiler while the chicken rested to crisp up the cheese and bacon

 

It all turned out great.

 

Of course in typical fashion, I only took pictures of the finished product....working on getting better with the picture thing :)

 

 

Smoke ON!

Thanks for the compliments!

 

The Cauliflower dish was a low fat, you could cut the greek yogurt and sub with sour cream and cream cheese and add more cheese for a very tasty dish.  I was going for a healthy version.

 

Smoke ON!
