    This was my supper tonight....

    I smoked a sliced onion in my drum....with a bit of hickory.

    I smoked pretty heavy for a short period of time (about 20 minutes)...didn't want to cook the onions. After they had a some color and were starting to get translucent, I placed them in a baggie and let them chill in the fridge.

    Made my beer batter using
    1 cup of flour
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp baking powder
    then added enough beer to make a pancake like batter...

    I dipped the rings into flour, then into the batter before frying...

    Made a spicy dipping sauce using ketsup, minced chipotles in adobo and minced onion....

    They were pretty tasty...

    Thanks for checking out my supper.

    Not only do they make me hungry, but your presentation and images are sure you aren't a pro fotographer on the side?

    I think we have come to the conclusion that Jeanie is a pro at everything she does (and probably the things she doesn't do to).

    Looks yummy Jeanie, my oldest loves onion rings. I will have to try those this weekend. Hopefully Saturday will be a celebration dinner once we find out if he made the baseball team

    Rings look great. I have never smoked mine before i fry them but I do use a similar batter. The only difference is I add a teaspoon of paprika and 1/4 cup of cornmeal for a little crunch...

    Great dinner... Gary...

    Thank you for the kind words folks!
    Dan, they still had a mild smoke flavor. I really layed the smoke to them for such a short time. I think they would be great cold smoked for a long period.

    Tim, that was some of my best dinnerware. lol :)

    Thank you Bassman, Irish, BigBald and Ole...( I'd share with ya.)

    Rivet, I use my little Kodak easy share camera that's a couple of years old. It's a cheapie. :)

    Mrs B....You are too sweet!!!

    Gary, I like the sound of your batter, I'll give it a try. Thanks!!

    Oh, I do love smoked onion. I do my onion blossoms pretty often and they are a great garnish for other stuff, good snackin', too! Your batter fry after the smoke, now that's killer...gonna have to try that one sometime soon. I'm a die-hard for onion rings...I'll have them over french-fies any where, anytime.

    Nice idea, Jeanie!
