Well I've been a member for a while finally figured I'd jump in. July 3rd me & the wife had about 60 people come for a bbq, mostly from our church, they were blown away by the pulled pork and smoked chicken amongst other things. I am a professional chef and have been aching to dabble in the smoking world. Well anyway tomorrow we are having an appetizer get together and from what we can gather everyone who missed the first one is coming so we figure about 150-175 people.
We are making 3-2-1 ribs making them today. Here are some unique ways to use the leftovers

Southwest wontons:

1 smoked chickens diced real small
2 bunches scallions
1/2 bunch cilantro
1/2 lb. pepper jack
1/2 lb. cheddar
1 tsp cumin
10 pieces sundried tomatoes cut small

combine all ingredients and stuff wonton wrapper with 1/2-3/4 teaspoons worth
wet edge with water and fold over
deep fry at 350 for 1-2 minutes until brown

pulled pork fajitas

pulled pork
alabama sauce
scallions
cheddar & pepper jack (or monteray for wimps)
5" flour tortilla shell


fill shells with ingredients
brush an old cookie pan with oil place on bbq and grill these baby on both sides

we also are making about 6 more types of finger apps
and about ten -twelve desserts . I'll tell ya Monday how it turns out

I never considered using smoked pulled pork for fajitas.. now the idea has me extremely intrigued


Be sure and let us know how the shin-dig turns out and meanwhile I will be dreaming of smoked chicken wontons and smoked pulled pork fajitas with a tall glass of southern style ice tea.

Chicken salad is one of my favorite ways to use leftover chicken or turkey. So far, I've only used leftover pork (on the odd occasion that there are any leftovers :) ) to make more bbq sandwiches. I must admit, though, that the idea of fajitas sounds pretty awesome! My wife loves mexican food, anyway, so I'll give this a try soon. Thanks for the tip!

Cheers,
Brian

When it comes to left over smoked brisket; I don't think you can beat putting it in some enchaladas.

Hey Y2kpitt,
You are right on the nose about that one, my wife did some of those and they are the best thing over any things expect you can't eat just one.

I usually smoke a couple of chickens at a time, we eat most of one. Then we have smoked chicken enchiladas, and finish up using the rest for chicken and noodles. It gives the noodle a nice smoky flavor. Yum Yum
