    Made a loaf of beer bread for my turkey pastrami sandwich this weekend.

    I used 3 cups of self rising flour
    1/4 cup of sugar
    a bit of salt
    mixed with one beer

    used a cast iron skillet...
    brushed the top of the bread with an egg wash and sprinkled with chopped onions..

    smoked with hickory in my drum...

    the bread took about 2 hours at 300 degrees. I rap the top of the loaf to check.. if it sounds hollow, it's ready..

    It was kinda tasty! :)

    Thanks for lookin'. :)

    and the bottom is has the perfect color. It amazes me how consistent you are. Seriously...marriage? I've got a wife and 3 kids, but I'm guessing they'll never find me out on your ranch.
    Ok, we don't have to actually get married. I'll just do stuff around the ranch and help out in exchange for chow that looks like that!

    One day all the wives on this board are going to wake up and find a note on their hubby's pillow saying "Gone to OK, BBIAB." Great looking beer bread, I make some in my gas oven from time to time when I host my local beer club here. I'll have to give a try on the grill sometime. [​IMG]

    Sounds like a great recipe. Is there a max percent of alcohol the beer can have? The beer here in germany is usually 4.8 to 5 percent.

    Thank you everybody!
    Thanks Paul!
    Meathunter, those are brussel sprouts wrapped in bacon. I guess I forgot to post that smoke. lol
    Grue... lol I'd put you to work fixing fence. But I'd feed ya too. [​IMG]

    mballi, thank you! [​IMG]

    smokemaster... I've only used 3.2 beer but I bet the alcohol content wouldn't make a difference. I usually use a lighter beer though, have not tried an amber or lager. They might be tasty too.
    If you do make one using dark beer, please let me know how it comes out.

    Great looking bread ! I made some naan bread tonight for the first time. Most of them I just put right on the bbq grill on uber high heat. They are done quicker than toast in the toaster. I know because I put the naan on the grill and toast in the toaster. While I was getting the toast out the naan burned. No big deal cause I made 20. No pics because my wife was sick and I was staying out of her way and camera is somewhere in her bedroom.

    I stuck one of the naans brushed with butter in my 10 inch Dutch oven with a rosemary leaf over to one side. I put two coals right under the rosemary and wow did that ever turn out nice. ( I got that tip once from cowgirl herself and she's a professional snicker snicker , tink tink, say no more. )

    BTW Jeanie, keep that Bull behind your fence, if its one thing SMF has enough of its Bull! [​IMG]
