SMF tag team for graduation party QView(Update)

Discussion in 'Messages for All Guests and Members' started by smokinstevo27, May 13, 2011.

  1. Andrew82 and myself are smoking up a feast for our buddy's graduation party tomorrow! I'm doing some smoked chicken salad sandwches and Andrew82 is going to do pulled pork. I've got the chickens going now and it smells incredible outside. They are both right around five pounds so we'll see how much useable meat they yield. I'm smoking the chickens with a cherry/apple wood blend. If you have never done smoked chicken salad I higly reccomend you try it. I've perfected my recipe and have done it for several events including my wedding. Just pick your favorite CS recipe and smoke up some whole chickens. Here is the start, more to come later.

    Looks good Steve - I like to add some smoked walnuts chopped up with some dried cranberries in mine. What is in yours? 
     
  4. Thanks Craig! It'll be lookin better later on.

     

    Gary, I could tell you but then I'd have to kill you haha. No, I do mayo, dijon mustard, fresh squeezed lemon, green onion, celery, a few dashes of hot sauce (Texas Pete like I sent you) and assorted spices. This stuff is unbelievable.

  7. Thanks everybody, I just pulled them off the smoker and finished them up on the grill for crispy skin. I know it doesn't matter for chicken salad but I'm going to eat it! More pics coming soon.
     
  8. Well here we go. These chickens had huge breasts [​IMG]  so I got plenty of meat. I think there will be roughly 20-25 people at the party tomorrow. I'm going to get some type of bread and make little finger sandwiches. I'll put up some pics of the party and I think Andrew82 is going to make a post with the butts that he is smoking. Thanks for lookin!

  10. Thanks Craig, I've been lovin your posts here recently! Its in the fridge now so once all of those flavors have a chance to meld together its going to be killer. I'm spoiled by this chicken salad. I can't buy or order other chicken salad anywhere now. My wife thinks we should sell it haha.

  13. They're purdy ain't they? Thanks Meat!

    I really don't use a recipe, just basic stuff. Mayo, onion, celery, s&p. Sometimes a little dill, maybe a pickle. I think just about any recipe would taste great, because it's the smoked chicken that makes it taste so good.

    Great looking chickens...Looks like that one scored a touchdown....[​IMG]
     
  16. Yeah you can really play around with CS. The smoked chicken does make it superior to regular CS. Im glad I found this hobby and this site!

     

    Thanks Roller, this one is always a touchdown plus a two point conversion. [​IMG]

     
     
  17. Two SMF members are better than one! Andrew82 made some killer pulled pork and the food was a success. The tag team worked out nicely!

    Here are some pics from the party last night.
