Smoked Chocolate

Smoked Chocolate

Yep You Read That Right

Posted on May 28, 2013

I have mentioned before that depending on the day’s temperature, you may have some issues keeping the smoker cool. If you’re smoking on a sunny and warm day (20°C+/68°F+) it will increase the temperature of the smoker itself. Try to work in the shade if you can. I had this very trouble. It was warm and sunny. The chocolate started melting after about 10 minutes on the smoker. I actually pulled mine off early. My bars were also a little thinner than 1-inch as well – not helpful. But I got what I was looking for. A smoky barbecue flavour embedded in the chocolate.

It’s not fantastic to just sit and eat. Kind of like placing a piece of chocolate on your tongue and then licking a grill. But when you melt it and use it IN things… look out! There is just a hint of smokiness and a whole lot of chocolate! It’s delicious! Amazing. Fantastic.

Smoked Chocolate Guinness Cake

Smoked Chocolate Guinness Cake

With Marshmallow Cream Cheese Frosting

Posted on May 28, 2013

I was honoured when asked to bake the birthday cake for a friend's party. I had just the thing for it too! Having just made Smoked Chocolate, I knew that I had to use it in this cake. The cake was a huge hit... it was also huge. I doubled this recipe for a two layer cake. I put a fudge-y chocolate layer in the middle and topped it all off with a marshmallow and cream cheese frosting. The recipe here makes one 9-inch, single layer cake. You will need a kitchen scale to weight out the chocolate.

Room For Extras

Posted on May 27, 2013

Now those are just the basic nachos. You can add pulled pork or chicken, steak, sausage, hotter peppers, pickles, tomatoes, and cilantro. You could grill the peppers and onion first, or you could use creamy salad dressings. You could top it with cole slaw, or make a bruschetta-tomato mix and top it with that. The options are endless!

Beef Jerky

Beef Jerky

On The Smoker

Posted on May 27, 2013

This jerky was incredible. I have gone from someone who was turned off by the mere sight of this dried meat substance, to someone who very much enjoys jerky. Only thing about this recipe is that I find it a tad on the expensive side. Eye of round is a reasonably expensive cut of meat. For ours, it was $20.00. If that doesn’t bug you, then this is the recipe for you. I guess time could be a cost prohibitive thing as well, but if you use the smoker at the cottage when you have nothing doing but a dip in the lake and a good book, or beer and buddys are a good idea. It’s definitely worth the time and money for this beef. Oh yeah, and if you have buddys there… the jerky will be gone as soon as it’s cool enough to eat. So be sure to squirel some away for later!

Mi Pho #1 Marinade

Asian Style Marinade with A Kick

Posted on May 27, 2013
Mi Pho #1 Marinade is a fantastic marinade for everything from Beef to Chicken, Fish and Pork. It's spicy, but not too hot that you can't taste what you're eating. If you're not a spicy person, you may like this, just drink a glass of milk with your food.

Big Juicy Rib Steak

Big Juicy Rib Steak

With Frizzled Onions

Delicious. The recipe says that it serves one, but seriously, this could serve at least two people. My husband and I were quite content after dinner. Of course I made two smaller steaks, and even had leftovers, but you can totally get away with getting a whopper of a steak and sharing…if you can. I recommend having something light and chocolatey on hand for later, a mousse or a chocolate drink, you will want it.

Maple Glazed Duck Breasts

Maple Glazed Duck Breasts

With Maple Green Beans

Posted on May 13, 2013
The duck breasts are a saltier meat, and benefit from the sweet of the maple. The beans complimented the meal and finishing with potatoes was just natural. The crispness of the duck skin was magical. And like I said, this enticed a proper lady to pluck and nibble with her fingers when all was said and done. So you know it’s that good.

Fresh Citrus Cake

with Lemon Curd and Mascarpone Icing

Posted on May 13, 2013

Did I mention how GOOD this cake was?  Quite enjoyable. Next time I think I will double the icing recipe. It covered the cake alright, but it was a thin layer. There was so much cake too! It could have easily fed 12 people. It was divided between four of us. I have also been told that the lemon curd is quite tasty on salmon. Let me know if you have tried it. I am curious.
