Smoking It Southern Style

Smoked/Grilled Chicken
Smoked/Grilled Chicken Wrapped with Double Thick Pork Belly and Sweet Vidalia Onion
Grilled Sweet Corn with Butter, Sweet Vidalia Onion and Rosemary
Smoked Blackeyed Peas with Smoked Pork Neck Bones
Cajun Fried Whole Okra
Apple Dump Cake


Smoked Blackeyed Peas with Smoked Pork Neck Bones

2# of pork neck bones with lots of meat on them
Four 15oz cans of plain Blackeye Peas
1 large Sweet Vidalia Onion, chopped
Smoke neck bones at 250'F over Mesquite, letting the blackeye peas catch all the drippings
After about four hours I put the neck bones into the beans for the rest of the cook, i.e. the chicken
I left these under the chicken to catch all their drippings too... Pork-n-Chicken = Yummy!



Smoked/Grilled Chicken
Smoked/Grilled Chicken Wrapped with Double Thick Pork Belly and Sweet Vidalia Onion

Rub chicken with Montreal Chicken and rub Pork Belly with my favorite homemade rub
Wrap chicken with pork belly, insert pieces of Sweet Vidalia Onion under pork belly and smoke at 350'-375'F over Mesquite.
After about an hour of smoke and with an IT averaging 125'F I moved them to my grill to finish crisping the pork belly and skins.



Out of the Smoker



And Onto the Grill



The Finished Product



Grilled Sweet Corn with Butter, Sweet Vidalia Onion and Rosemary

Lay a cob on aluminum foil, add a pat or two of butter, Sweet Vidalia Onion and some fresh Rosemary
Wrap tightly in foll and grill for 15-20 minutes while rolling every so often to get all sides



Cajun Fried Whole Okra

Soak Okra in Buttermilk, dredge in seasoned flour, dip in eggwash, dredge in seasoned cornmeal and then deep fry golden brown



Apple Dump Cake

Butter a disposable 9x13 aluminum tray, dump in two cans of apple pie filling and level
Evenly dump one package of Yellow Cake mix over filling
Thoroughly over cake mix with thin pats of butter, use at least 1.5 sticks of butter if not 2
Bake at 350'F for 45 minutes to an hour, until golden brown on top



The Money Shot

Too late for this one, but I fire up the pits almost weekly.
Thanks for compliments.

I was hungry till I tackled those plates... Then it was nap time.

Dang'it Disco, I went to the lake and got wet.
Note to self: Perfect post does not equal walk on water perfect.

Thanks Bro, appreciate the compliments and Point.
You do some of the best cooks.
Now that is a huge compliment around here, thank you sir.
Tasty and busy job on this one!
The really neat thing with this meal is that everything but the Okra was very easy and quick.
Thank you for the Point!

Wow! Impressive! I am officially placing my order! You got robbed on votes. That's all I've got to say.

You're too kind, but your entry had the advantage of Thinking Outside The Box uniqueness, and you won righteously.
I thank you for the compliments and Point.

Dessert isn't a side dish, but danged if it isn't one of the best courses of a meal. :biggrin:

No ripping off needed, given freely... Thanks for the Point.

You had my vote, CR: nothing screams "southern home cooking" like Vidalias, black-eyed peas, and fried okra. Well done, sir.

Great entry Chile!  IMHO, if that corn had had roasted kernels, that plate would have ran away with it!  I roasted my corn and it broke my heart to cut those beautiful kernels off the cob and put them in grits.

Thanks, I know what you mean about roasted corn.
One of my favorite meals is skillet roasted corn & meat made from leftovers.

Southwestern Pan Fried Corn

Leftover Corn, taken off cob
Leftover Meat, I used shredded Chicken this time
Onion, chopped coarse
Pan fried in just a touch of EVOO.
Spiced with Sea Salt, Cumin, Cayenne and Smoked Paprika

Awesome!  I will be grilling corn way more often!  That is super easy and tasty way to fix leftovers!
