Thanksgiving Scalloped taters, double smoked ABTs
We were invited to a doctors house for thanksgiving and I decided to bring a smoked side :thumb:.
I found a scalloped tater recipe that would work with my plans and went to work.
This is the first time I ever made scalloped taters from scratch and after the 2 boxes of taters I have are gone, this will be the only way I will make them.

I fired up the UDS to smoke the ham.
I had to solve a problem before I got started. My UDS lid had a theft proof, liquid smoke seal on it. I was afraid I was going to pull the handle off. I had to pry it off in the end.

I collected all the used wood and lump from the last few cookouts and filled my "grillin" basket with a mix that had a nice campfire smell to it.

I got the weber going for double grilled ABTs and to sear the ham after it came off the UDS. I also made a new batch of bacon bits.

Double smoked ABTs: If you cook the lil smokies before you make the ABTs, they taste SOOOO much better!

I filled my Cabelas 14" chicken fryer CI pot with the scalloped taters and put it in the UDS for 45 minutes. then I transferred it all to a 9x13 pan and cooked it in the oven for at least another hour.

We had to jump and run because these taters made us late. Here is an "after" shot when we were all done.

That is a great looking meal. Bet it was all a hit. Unless he was a cardiologist:wink:

Oh yeah. they were a serious hit. My BBQ rep is safe in his house. He was a flight sergeon and he's now an ansthesiologist at a surgery center he owns a part of.

There was a Mexican there. you should have seen him dig into the ABTs. he never heard of one and he ate half of them. :-D

Looks great. How long does it take the sliced taters to get tender?
