Nice smokey tomato soup/bisque

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I was playing around with my favorite cool weather meal of all time, a grilled cheese sanny and tomato soup. I had not fired the Old Girl in a while so I made a nice bisque (cream of tomato, basically) with Roma and Beefsteak tomatoes and put about 8 cups of it into a steel bowl and smoked it. While that was going I went and bought some smoked Gouda and white american cheese, Boar's Head. Cheap white american is so salty.....

anyway since I haven't built a cold smoker (yet) I had to survive with store bought. After just an hour the soup had inhaled the most wonderful, woody quality and dredging that grilled sandwich through it was amazing. Truly a pleasure, and it was smoked in an hour.

It's been a while since I've been here, great to see the list of friends growing and newbies learning and enjoying our craft. Have a great weekend!

I stirred it up yes so it wouldn't get a "skin", and did it at 225 (I do just about everything at 225). I didn't want the cream to go weird on me so I kept a wooden spoon to it once in a while and it turned out great in short time.

actually, I'd like to hear your recipe for making the soup! I was going to try a homemade roasted tomato soup by roasting the tomatoes in the oven first, maybe I could do that in the smoker instead. I wonder if it would be better smoking the soup or smoking the tomatoes and then making the soup???

Shellbellc... I like you style of approaching a first time try. If one has the time and $... try both and then decide. I've spent more time and some $ with that approach, but then again it's all good!

Hey Key, I hope you stirred it more often than showing up on the SMF, sounds good. I have a recipe somewhere which is called garretts smokey tomatoe dressing, but I believe the recipe calls for liquid smoke. But who's stopping us from improving on recipes.

Yeah sorry, personal stuff got in the way and smokin' got waylaid off to one side. Silly me, I need to remember what's important!
