Pimento Cheese

Jan 25, 2018 by

Pimento Cheese (aka Southern Pâté) is simple and easy. Never heard of pimento cheese till we moved to the south. Sure you can buy the pimento cheese in a plastic tub but why not make it yourself. Trust me you will like it.

 

Ingredients
  • 1½ cups grated extra-sharp yellow cheddar cheese (about 6 ounces)
  • 1½ cups grated extra-sharp white cheddar cheese (about 6 ounces)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup diced drained pimiento peppers from jar, roasted red peppers
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp pickle juice
  • Salt and pepper
 
Instructions
  1. Mix first 6 ingredients in medium bowl. Blend well. Season with salt and pepper. Cover; chill until cold, at least 2 hours.
  2. Serve pimiento cheese with crackers, or, if you like spread between 2 slices of white bread add some prepared bacon and tomato. Fry in a skillet on both sided.Pimento Cheese Sandwich

Smoked Chicken

Sep 10, 2016 by

After you try this recipe Smoked Chicken, you never want to go back to the regular bbq chicken. I guarantee you that. 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1 whole chicken butterflied or halved
  • Smoking wood chips preferably apple or cherry
For the Brine
  • 1-quart apple or orange juice
  • 1-quart water
  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons molasses

Instructions

  1. Put the wood chips in your smoker and turn the smoker on ( mine is gas), by the time you put your bird in the smoker the temp should be around 350F. Butterfly your chicken.
  2. Whisk together apple juice, water, salt, brown sugar, and molasses until solids have dissolved. Put the chicken in the brine, breast side down, and place in refrigerator for 1 1/2 hours.
  3. Remove chicken from brine and pat dry with paper towels. Season both sides of chicken liberally with your favorite bbq seasoning.
  4. Place chicken, skin side up, in your smoker. Maintain a temperature around 350 F degrees, until breast meat registers 155 degrees and thigh meat registers 160 degrees on an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat. It took me a good 3 hours to smoke this bird.
  5. When you happen to have an extra chicken laying around, make this smoked chicken salad.
