Hickory Smoked Onion Rings

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Smoked some more onions for onion rings this weekend... I used hickory and my drum.

I let the onion slices smoke as long as I can without letting them get too dark..

I store the smoked onions in a baggie until I'm ready to fry them

make a beer batter by mixing
1 cup of flour
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of baking powder
and enough beer to make a pancake like batter
(about 3/4 of a beer)
I used some Tecate for this batch.

I flour the rings before dipping them in the batter..

fry til golden...

Thanks for checking out my smoked o rings!

Awesome idea for the O-rings, how well did the hickory flavor hold up after the batter and deep fry?

Thank you Dude, Fire, Scarbelly and Marty! :)

Dude, if Mrs. Dude says it's ok, then it's ok with me. lolPDT_Armataz_01_12.gif

Scarbelly, thank you for the points!

Fire I've made these before. I try to get the most smokey flavor by either smoking them long and slow... a really low temperature. OR by doing the big no-no..pouring as much smoke as I can at them in a short amount of time. This time I had other things in the drum so I went with a low slow approach.
I try to smoke them without cooking them much.
Also... a light beer works best in the batter or use your favorite batter. The beer taste really comes through. (hope that makes sense. PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif)

Marty... it's good to see ya!! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Bet you are hauling in deer right and left. icon_cool.gifbiggrin.gif Thank you!

And talk about EAT, Joey gnaws a Rib like a pro and Aubrey can't get enough 'Q'. 2-1/2Y/O and ate a 6 Ribs today.,by herself(well we did pull it off for her). Joey, no problem, snatch a Rib off the plate and suddenly -'no meat'.Great technique,sauce everywhere!
